Have you heard the term ‘mindset’ being used alot these days? It seems to get tossed around as if it is the end all, be all explanation for whatever ‘ails’ you. Everything it seems can be boiled down to ‘a mindset issue’.
And please, don’t get me wrong… I am a big believer in paying attention to my thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. I am constantly on the look out for attitudes and beliefs that have developed, unbeknownst to me, and have started to take up space in my life without my noticing. They may be hindering my business or my close relationships and possibly even preventing me from developing into the fullness of what God has in store for my life.
Here’s a phrase I’ve heard lately in certain circles.
“Whatever you think about expands”
People often refer to this when speaking about ‘being positive’, in my mind, there is a very strong spiritual principle at work here.
Whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely
whatever is admirable
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.
Focus on the positive. It will expand as you give more of your attention to it….
True – sounds positive to me
Noble – sounds like a positive attribute to me
Purity – truly is positive
Lovely anything is positive
Admirable actions are amazingly positive
Anything excellent and praiseworthy are positive
It sure sounds like positive thinking to me. What about you?
