Thoughts can often seem easy, light, and inconsequential. After all, on its own a mere thought doesn't have the power to do anything.
However, you most certainly have the power to do many things. And your thoughts are what determine and direct the actions you take.
If you continually focus your thoughts on the things you don't want, those things will surely find their way into your life. By the same measure, focusing your thoughts on your most positive possibilities enables you to make those possibilities real.
When life brings you disappointment after disappointment, it's easy to make all your thoughts negative ones. Yet it is just as easy, and far more empowering, to respond with positive thinking.
If you had the power to change your life for the better, would you use that power? You do indeed have that power, and it is in the thoughts you choose to think.
