You become what you think, so think positive!

You have the power to think and be positive and the power to think and be positive will change your life.  People who think positively can see potential in even the most challenging and discouraging situations. In contrast, people who think negatively usually only see the problems and limitations in any situation rather than the solutions.
Negative thinking distorts reality.  Your ability to think negatively or positively is a choice.  When you see things through the glasses of negativity it is impossible to create rational solutions.  Problems seem bigger and harder to get through than they really are.  You begin to feel like nothing can go right.  Negative thinking becomes negative talk and negative actions.  You can not attract good things into your life with bad thoughts.
The alternative is to tap into the power of positive thinking.  That's a choice too!  Understand your thoughts and beliefs and allow positivity, happiness and optimism to be your focus.  When your thoughts are limited, your beliefs are limited and so are your actions.  Until you make positive thinking a way of being, doing and having you will always experience a disconnect in your life, your work, your relationships and in your ability to fulfill your very purpose.
To start living the life of your dreams,  you only need to do one thing ... change your state of mind.
Believe that you have the power to create the results that you want in your life - in large part to the way you respond to the events that are occurring in your life.  Good things are yours to have and nothing is impossible if you have faith and believe in that the Universe is here to support you.
Don't let anyone else stop your flow of positive thoughts.  Protect them and your ability to be positive from the negative thoughts of others.  Don't let anyone else's limited thinking limit you.  Always focus on the solutions and sometimes the very blessings to come from any challenges.
Being positive is a choice, and it requires practice and dedication to the process.  Train your mind to think positively in every situation.  Train your thoughts to be kind and supportive, especially to yourself.   Train your voice to always speak with positivity and encouragement to others.  Focus on all the things in your life that are good because what you focus on expands.  Express gratitude for what you have rather than discontent for what you don't have.
Think highly of yourself!  The world takes you at your own estimate!

Is your list too long?

How do you know what to do first?  How many things can one person do in a day?  Well, many successful people have mastered the ability to get more done by doing less!
It’s a well established fact that the average person cannot successfully handle more than six or seven things in their minds at one time. Yet, we try to do it all the time. One simple method will help … write it down!
This will do more than just create a to-do list. Writing things down is the process of down loading.
The strategy is to keep a short list in order to narrow down what’s truly important to do each day. And writing things down helps you summarize the details and envision the tasks already done.
The next step is to rank those six items in order of their importance. Anxiety can be caused when we have too many things on our minds or when we feel our “plate is full”.
Once you have the list, develop your focus and only keep one thing in the forefront of your mind – the task at hand.
Is it possible, that if you create this list the night before, you might even sleep better? Your subconscious mind will work on preparing you for the tasks of the next day while you sleep. You will find yourself waking up not only refreshed from a good night’s sleep, but also with great ideas for accomplishing the day’s tasks.
Don’t assume that the list will allow you to accomplish 12 hours of work in an 8 hour day. Know your limitations. The goal is to have a smooth-flowing productive day, not a day crammed with so much activity that you have nothing left to give your personal life. After all, why work hard to earn an incredible income if your health will be too poor to enjoy it.
