How To Win The Greatest Battle You’ll Ever Fight (part 2)
As we stated in our last session, one’s life is the sum total of decisions and choices made over time. According to author Brian Hawker, “This is life’s greatest truth and hardest lesson because it reminds us that the power is ours alone to be who we want, and to live the life we have imagined ”. Accepting that all of us have the power to choose, allows us to take ownership for who, where, and what we are.
This realization that you are in control of your own destiny is indeed extraordinary!...but Please don't be overwhelmed by the magnitude of this responsibility. Just as the journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step; all decisions - no matter how big or small –begin with a thought. Our thought life is crucial to the life lived out from day to day, for the garden that grows is the one which is watered most....what are you using to water the garden of your mind? How do handle the weeds of negative thinking when they pop up in your garden?
Our lives are a reflection of our choices, and our choices are a reflection of our thought life. According to Dr. Helen Schachmann, "There are no neutral or “harmless” thoughts. Every thought brings either peace or war; either love or fear.
How we think causes us to move forward or not. There is no neutral ground. Does your thought life align with the best version of you? If not, there is hope because you have the power to change how you think. Every day when dealing with self, others, and the situations of life, you have a choice: peace or war, love or fear.
What do you choose?
