Thoughts Are the First Principle in the Science of Getting Rich
How do you handle your thoughts? Did you know that you have anywhere between 40-50,000 thoughts a day on average? Without adding all the negativity, you might be getting from the TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and the internet.
What do you think sells – negative or positive news?
A few years back, ABC News had a 5-minute segment of positive news at the end of the national news on Friday night. It lasted a couple of years, and they found that it wasn’t popular with its viewers, so they stopped having a good news segment.
Did you know that 87% of our thoughts are negative?
It’s not a wonder everyone dwells on negativity, and it is one of the major reasons we have so many negative people in this world. Wallace Wattles writes:
“Every form and process you see in nature is the visible expression of a thought in the original substance. As it thinks of a form, it takes that form; as it thinks of a motion, it makes that motion. That is the way all things were created. We live in a thought-world, and this world is a part of a thought universe.” (SoGR-Chapter 4)
Remember the saying garbage in – garbage out.
We all have ‘thought’ choices.
Well, that’s what’s happening to us with disastrous results. To change this, you can limit the amount of time you watch the news or read the newspaper. Paraphrasing what Wattles said is ‘when you think negative thoughts, you will create that thought.’
Thoughts just come and go, and if we spent all of our time giving each thought ownership, we’d be a complete mess. Our mind allows us to filter our thoughts, and we get to choose which ones we want to pay attention to and expand on.
This is where we have to choose wisely, for thoughts become feelings, and feelings create action, with the end becoming a result.
Now think if you choose what you want to think about and impress those thoughts upon the universe. What you think about most often is what you become or what you form.
Watch your thoughts – it’s who you become. Learning how to control your thoughts is the first principle in the Science of Getting Rich.
