What are you feeding your mind?
You've probably heard the saying "You are what you eat". Have you ever noticed that when you are eating healthier, you tend to feel better? I definitely have! I have had a weakness for chips, dips and fried foods. When I manage to stay away from those foods and eat healthier, there is a tremendous difference in how I look, feel and act.
I have learned that the same thing applies to the mind. What you put into your mind has an effect on your whole life. Watching the news can often cause you to worry and keep you in a constant state of fear. Also, being around certain people can keep you in a negative frame of mind. If you find yourself in the presence of anything that may not be helping to move you to a higher level of success, do what you can to remove yourself. I'm not suggesting that you stop watching the news altogether and I am aware that you may not be able to avoid some naysayers; I'm simply saying to be mindful of how you react to or hold on to the information you are receiving.
I would like to challenge you to pay attention to what you are eating mentally. What are you feeding your mind? Are you reading about how many people were killed today? Or how there are no jobs available and participating in gossip? Or, are you reading positive material? Are you listening to inspirational music and watching motivational movies and videos? There is a saying that goes "Whatever you think about you bring about." Please focus on bringing about a healthy, wealthy and positive successful life!
