The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. The mind is indeed your battleground. It’s the place where the greatest conflict resides. It’s where half of the chaos you thought was real, never did happen. But if you allow these thoughts to dwell in your mind, they will succeed in robbing you of peace, joy, and ultimately your sanity.
The good part is that you can change your thinking. And mornings are one of the simplest times for making this change gradually transpire in your life.
Here are 10 morning reminders to calm down the chaos in your life.
- Happiness doesn’t start with a relationship, a vacation, a job, or money. It starts with your thinking and what you tell yourself today.
- If you are passionate about something, pursue it a little bit each day, no matter what anyone else thinks. That’s how dreams are achieved.
- Give yourself the space to listen to your own voice – your own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world and get lost in the crowd.
- You do NOT know exactly what the future will bring. So your best bet for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present.
- Sometimes you spend time waiting for the ideal path to appear. But it never does. Because paths are made by walking, not waiting.
- Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being wise. Do the best you can until you know better. Once you know better, do better.
- The truth is, you need to spend some time crawling through the dark to fully appreciate what it is to stand in the sunlight.
- The problem is not the problem – the problem is the incredible amount of over-thinking and over-analyzing you’re doing with the problem.
- Many people make themselves unhappy simply by finding it impossible to accept life just as it is presenting itself right now.
- One of the most rewarding and important kinds of moments in life are the moments when you finally find the strength to let go of what can’t be changed.
Realize that it’s not the experience of today that creates most of the chaos in your life, but the regret and resentment about something that happened yesterday or the fear and dread of what tomorrow might bring. It’s necessary, therefore, to let yourself live just one day at a time – just today – just right here, right now.
