The Outside Counts, Too

Ella Wheeler Wilcox writes in “The Heart ofrepparttar New Thought”:

No matter if you need your frayed-out garments – do not keep them. Your thoughts of trouble and poverty have impregnated them so that you will continue to producerepparttar 141737 same despondent mind stuff while you wear these garments.

What does wearing those old clothes do to us? It tellsrepparttar 141738 rest ofrepparttar 141739 world that we’re old-clothes kind of people, not prosperous people. That we’re stuck in our old situation and not moving on.

Maybe worse, we send ourselvesrepparttar 141740 same message. We hold onto them because we think we can’t afford anything better. But every time we put them on we remind ourselves that we don’t truly believe we can do any better. We continually reinforce that message.

Sure, we’re saving a little. But is our goal to save money, or make more? We can findrepparttar 141741 balance between being spendthrifts and cheating ourselves. “Penny-wise and pound-foolish,”repparttar 141742 saying goes. What we look like reflects our belief in ourselves. Visual impressions are significant, and not just for their effects on others. We believe what we see inrepparttar 141743 mirror.

The good news: much of what we see, we control. Take responsibility forrepparttar 141744 message you send to yourself, not just in words, but in what you allow yourself to see.

Change Your Association

Written by Daniel N. Brown

Continued from page 1

Again,repparttar best ways to change your thinking is by changing your association. I am not saying you must never be friends with certain people but sometimes you must love certain people from a distance. Personally, I severed three relationships that were dragging me down.

I still love these three people. I just don't go out regularly with them anymore. If they are ever in need of something I will definately be there for them. But as long as they remain unwilling to become more positive about themselves and their lives, then I choose not to let their negativity rub off on me.

Whatever you need to do to become more of a positive thinking person with higher expectations, you need to do it. It is written in Philippians 4:8, "Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things."
