This is a quote that I love because it says everything of a person. Our life will be what we want of it once we open our eyes and our mind to focus on the good rather than the bad in life.
When a person is full of negative thoughts they will attract negativity in their life. Its like when you are focusing on the lack of money and all the bills that are coming in... You go to your mail box and what do you find but more bills? However, you shift your focus to begin thinking more positive and thinking of the money that will be coming in and how you can get more money coming in you soon find checks in your mail box vs all the bills.
We must always be alert to our thoughts and maintain a positive life. This is something that I've personally worked on for the past 4 years and I love how it makes me feel. I no longer focus on problems, my focus is now on the solutions because first of all there is a solution for every problem. It just depends on how you choose to look at it.
So, the next time something negative creeps into your thoughts, I encourage you to focus on the solution and the positive of that thought.
