I’ve always believed that if you can change how you think, you will change what you see in this world.
I just experienced a funny example of this.
My funny story:
As you might know, I’m a mom (to my adorable son Ari Salmansohn).
Ever since I became a mom, I now see more “mom type things” in the world.
Like with this box I received. Take a look at the upper left side of it.
Curious what you see written in that top left hand corner.
Before I became a mom, I’d always see this same scribble – and I’d read it very clearly as my apartment number: 303.
But now that I have “mom brain” those numbers look to me like MOM – and not 303.
Do you see MOM?
Or do you see 303?
I’m intuiting your answer might change according to if you’re a mom or not!
Once again – I never saw 303 as MOM – until AFTER I gave birth to my son Ari – and developed “Mom Brain.”
A helpful reminder…
You can auto-pilot your belief system away from the “negative” and towards the “positive” – simply by mindfully choosing to look for the good in the world wherever you go.
The way I accidentally developed “Mom Brain” you can decisively develop “Positivity Brain.”
Make it a conscious choice to seek out the positive in each and every day – to keep an out eye for things to be grateful about.
You can start right now.
Choose to be positive about a challenge you might be facing right now. Look for a gain in your pain. Keep an open mind to how the universe might be redirecting you towards something really good – then look for that really good stuff to show up in your life. I call this “getting curious – instead of furious” – and it’s a very helpful perspective. 🙂
