Have you ever had a bad day? Have you notice that each time you find yourself in a situation where the day doesn't seem to go as you have planned and keep thinking about that, your day actually gets worse? I got an answer that eventhough has not been scientifically proven seems to me very logical. I am talking about the power of your mind. You may have not even realize how powerful your thoughts are. For example, when you wake up in the mornings with a negative mindset and saying -oh, it's so early I don't want to go to school- or -I wish I could have two more hours of sleep, I hate waking up at this hour- etc. you are contaminating your energy with negativism, your releasing this wave of negative energy around yourself that affects the ambiance around you. As I said at the beginning, have you had one of those days when it seems that nothing you do is resulting the way you expected and that everytime you get angry for a situation another negative thing happens to you, and you keep asking yourself -why me? why is this happening to me? I hate traffic, I don't like school, I wish they give us something else to eat at the caffeteria, etc. We complain all the time and we don't realize that that's just making it worse. We should be grateful and appreciatte the things we have and try to stay positive most of the time. I know it is difficult to be always positive but at least you got to give it a try, believe me, it's worth it. An example of the power of thoughts that happened to me all the time is parking. When I was in college, finding a spot where to park close by school where almost impossible, or at least that's what 99% of people said. You could be looking for a parking space for an hour without having any success. But guess what? I always found parking space closer than any other of my friends, and I didn't have to spend hours looking for it, it usually took me from 1 to 5 minutes to find one. Do you want to know the reason of my so called "luck"? I always thought I was going to find a parking space. My friends didn't believe me until they went with me in the car, they used to say -why are you leaving so late from your home, you're not gonna get on time to your class, you should take at least half an hour to find a parking space- and I said to them -I know I'm gonna find something, and I'm not gonna spend so much time looking for it- and guess what, it happened, and it happened to me all the time, but you know why? because I believe it. The secret is to really believe in what you are thinking, we have an ability to create what's around us. You create negativity, but the good news are, that you can also create positivity. It's up to you, you want to constantly complain about everything? or you want to thank you for all the things you have? instead of complaining about traffic, you should be grateful you have a car, or that you can afford to pay for a transportation media, instead of complaining for school, you have to appreciatte that you are living in a country where education is provided at no-cost and that you are learning new things everyday. See the difference? It's not hard to start to create your world the way you've always want it to. As people say "beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder" and your thoughts determine your actions. Negative thoughts attracts negative things, and positive thoughts attracts positive things. Never ever underestimate the power of your mind, believe me, it can do wonders if you know how to use it. After all, is up to you if you want to take advantage of this natural tool that is intrinsic in yourself or not. Want to give it a try? Remeber, all you have to do is to really believe in the power of your mind, then as the very famous novel author Paulo Coehlo says "the world will conspire to help you".
