Our thoughts control our reality…
We really and truly are the co-creators of our own reality. Have you ever had something happen to you at the start of your day that really throws you off? It could be as simple as someone pissing you off, which puts you in a negative mindset. And somehow, that may set the tone for the rest of your day. In the sense that you may keep having more negative experiences for the rest of your day.
Thus, everything and everyone you come across may also piss you off. Or perhaps, just one other thing may happen which worsens your day. Your mindset in this scenario is negative and causes you to have negative experiences. Or cause you to read negative meanings into things that happen around you. And not until you change your negative mindset into a more positive one. Will things then start to turn around for the better. In other words, the negative mindset in this scenario will set the tone for creating more negative experiences throughout the day.
Perhaps you do not change your mindset or thoughts deliberately, but your thoughts may become more positive in the course of your day due to someone cheering you up or making you laugh, for instance. You may engage in activities that give you joy, which drastically improves your mood. Thereafter, you may notice your day begin to improve as your mood and thoughts become positive. This is a simple illustration of how we are co-creators of our own reality.
Therefore, the positive mindset puts an end to the negative experiences, and you end up having a good end to your day that started on the wrong foot. The interesting thing is, even when someone tries to upset you or does something you do not like when you control your thoughts, and stay in a good headspace, whatever negativity is going on around you, would not affect you as much as it would have if you were in a negative headspace. It would, therefore, not have the power over you to be able to negatively impact you, your day and your general everyday life experiences. Several hypothetical scenarios could be given, but the principle remains the same. Our thoughts control our reality, and as such, we are co-creators.
The view of the world from a positive person’s eyes would contrast drastically with that of a negative-minded person. This is not to say that someone with a positive mindset cannot have negative experiences as aforementioned. Still, the way they would handle it, the meaning they would attribute to it, would be more ‘positive’, so to speak, than that of someone less optimist, for instance. A positive minded person is more likely to find and focus on the light at the tunnel in every adverse situation. There might be moments of weakness, but that is totally normal. The point is that one should not stay down; we need to pick ourselves up and keep it moving and not allow negativity to have power over us.
