Our thoughts and mindsets can support or block those things we want for ourselves and for our lives.
Let me give you an example. One day, while listening to the news, like we all do, I felt a peculiar feeling infused in me. And for no apparent reason, I was entertaining negative mindsets correlated to the Coronavirus.
For a moment, I had no control over what was happening; and allowed my feelings to take me to a place I did not like. The sadness turned into distress and I felt consumed by the negative thoughts that invaded my psyche.
We all know the mind is powerful and for a few minutes, I had drifted away. But, as soon as I became aware of what was happening, I paused and took control.
That experience made me realized how easy it is for the mind to create an injurious reality. It confirmed how vulnerable we all are and how quickly we can fall into a pessimistic place which, unfortunately, many of us never fully recover from.
