What Station Are You Listening To?
Your mind is one of the most powerful things that God has given you. Studies have shown that we only use 10% of our â€śbrain powerâ€ť. You can train your mind with the right thoughts and when the negative thoughts come your way, you simply say â€śThereâ€™s No Vacancy; Thereâ€™s No Room Left At The Innâ€ť!
Meditate on the good thoughts and the bad thoughts canâ€™t get in. Do major housecleaning in your mind. Take inventory of the thoughts that are in your mind and evict the bad. Say â€śThe Lease is Not Being Renewedâ€ť!
Ignore the negative. You may hear it, but you can choose to ignore it and you donâ€™t have to dwell on it. It just doesnâ€™t register. Let it go in one ear and out the other. In other words, say â€śTalk to the Handâ€ť.
Perfect analogy â€“ a radio station. If you donâ€™t like what you hear on the radio, you change the station, right? You donâ€™t have to sit there and subject yourself to something you donâ€™t want to hear. You simply push a button. Itâ€™s the same principal for hearing negative thoughts in your mind. Change the channel! Tune into the â€śVictory Channelâ€ť. The â€śCan Doâ€ť, â€śAll Things Are Possibleâ€ť â€śMy Best Days Are Comingâ€ť, â€śIâ€™m Not Going To Endure Life, Iâ€™m Going To Enjoy Itâ€ť channel. Donâ€™t tune into the â€śWorry Channelâ€ť.
Did you know that serotonin levels go down when we think negative? Itâ€™s the reason why we have no energy, we feel blah and our enthusiasm is drained out of us. On the other hand, endorphins are released into our system when we think positive. Thereâ€™s a â€śspring in our stepâ€ť and we have our joy back.
Change your station. Change your mind set. Start talking to yourself and donâ€™t let yourself talk to you about negative thoughts.
People may think Iâ€™m listening to them when they speak negative thoughts, but Iâ€™m not. It goes in one ear and out the other. Itâ€™s like â€śtheyâ€™re talking, but Iâ€™m not listeningâ€ť! I simply choose to tune into the â€śpositiveâ€ť station. I have retrained my listening. If someone came up to you speaking Chinese, thereâ€™s a good chance you wouldnâ€™t understand what theyâ€™re saying. I donâ€™t understand Chinese, so I would tune it out. I may be hearing something, but it doesnâ€™t register. Retrain your hearing.
Pay attention to what youâ€™re hearing and thinking! Guard your mind! You may have to weed through a 100 negative thoughts till you get to a positive one, but when you come across that positive thought, hold onto it! Keep dismissing the negative sounds in your mind and eventually youâ€™ll hear nothing by the good positive ones! Think good things â€¦ ON PURPOSE!
