Shape your thoughts & create your life!
Everything starts with our thoughts . . .
If we think best life thoughts (everything is possible, keep going, abundance, give what you want to get, gratitude and appreciation, positive thoughts, love . . .), and make sure our words and actions reflect these thoughts, we form best life habits, which form the character that enables us to create our best lives!
We need to choose our thoughts, shape our thoughts, to make sure that they are in line with creating our best lives. We also need to teach our children how to shape their thoughts too. It’s never too early to start creating your best life!
“Watch your thoughts; they become words.
“Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

So, how do you shape your thoughts, choose positive thoughts, thoughts that will help you create your best life (instead of the other way around!)? You do it by making it a habit! There will be much more on how to do this later on, but for now, it all starts with awareness, with our thoughts, so start paying attention. Ask yourself, is this a thought (or words or actions) that is going to help me create my best life or prevent me from creating my best life.
Focus on your thoughts, shape your thoughts, and start creating your best life!
