I love Wayne Dyer. He looks like us. He talks like us. He dresses like us. Most of all, I love the way he explains his thoughts so simply.
I was listening to a video: Change your thoughts, change your life. Pay attention to your thoughts. They create your reality. What you focus on expands. If you focus on negative mind chatter, your reality will provide you with negative feedback, supporting your negativity. If you focus on positive thoughts, you will also attract what you are sending out to the universe, a positive reflection and manifestation of what is going on in your mind.
Increase your awareness.
Meditation is helpful. I do it. Not everyone can, or is willing to take the time to meditate. Everyone, though, can pay attention to what is going on in their mind. Knowing that what you focus on expands is a great motivation to keep negative thoughts out of your mind and replace the focus on more positive thoughts.
Test it for yourself.
Everything begins with a thought!
