Thought patterns are subtle yet they affect every area of our life. They can work in our favor, or completely work against us. We all have seasons in our life where “positive change” is not only necessary, but urgent. Without embracing change we become stagnate, existing but never reaching our inner potential that compels us to do more. As long as our thinking habits remain the same, so will our daily circumstances.
If we truly want change we must awaken from within, and harness our thought life. How ? Our thought patterns affect our health, relationships, business, self-confidence, and money. I think with so much at stake you understand why this is such an important topic. The rest of this blog centers on how to develop your mind to work in your favor, instead of against you.
“Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken”. Frank Herbert.
Throughout history a change of thought has literally changed families, communities, nations, and the world. Our thought patterns are what manifest our daily circumstances. In fact where we are today is the results from yesterday’s thoughts. We literally build, or destroy the life our thoughts create.
This is why people who constantly think negative unintentionally create bad things in their life. Being conscientious of how we think is the starting point for a healthy mind. But before we can make positive changes in how we think, we need to identify thought patterns that put life on hold.
- I can’t lose weight
- I’m too old
- Things never work out
- I’m always broke
- I feel unattractive
- I’m not smart
- People avoid me
- Why does this always happen to me
- I will never get through this
We have the power in our mind to switch on and off thought patterns that either work for us or against us.
Making Positive changes
When our thoughts change, our life changes. The mind is where a vision is born that enables persistence to drive success toward any victory. Our mind has the power to create thought patterns that carry out positive change.

When we become a victim of circumstance our natural response is to blame everything or everybody but ourselves. So how can we change thoughts to work for us instead of against us? First we need to find out what we need to change most in our life then focus on the ones that take a lot of courage to admit. Many try to avoid this and hide behind insecurities.

Our thought patterns are key to positive change. Tell yourself the person you want to be, and watch what happens over a short period of time. Affirmations may seem like wishful thinking for some, but they have actually worked well for successful people in sports, public speaking, acting, entrepreneurship, music, writing, and many other fields with amazing results.
Using affirmations to visualize personal success
Start visualizing yourself being successful in whatever you want to accomplish. Several people who have achieved great success throughout history have been asked how they’ve done it. The common answer is that they visualize themselves being successful before it ever happens.
Affirmations are a great way to visualize yourself having the life you envision. They may seem inconvenient or even hard at first, but the benefits are well worth the effort. Start opening your mind for new ways to think healthy.
Start window shopping to open your mind
Open your mind to new possibilities as you visualize in detail what you want. Visualize the kind of car you would drive, or the house you would live in if money was no object. Where would you travel in the world if there were no boundaries, or nothing to hold you back? Anything we do is a thought before it becomes a reality. Learn to harness your imagination with more definition, and an open mind toward the life you envision.
Start window shopping for things you can’t afford, and visualize you having it. Do whatever it takes to visualize yourself with complete success in whatever you want to achieve. Why? Because it works, and has proven very effective for success in personal achievement.
“Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts”. Arnold Bennett
