The nature of consciousness is to flow. It seems ever changing. States of mind succeed one another… We can direct consciousness to an idea or impulse, but we cannot

lock it in place. —Dr. George Weinberg—

Our minds are marvelous, always moving, growing, absorbing, discarding, storing. And we are in control of the direction our minds take. Thus it’s by choice, either

conscious or unconscious, that we dwell on negative outcomes rather than positive projections.
Claiming ownership of and responsibility for the direction of our minds and our lives develops a sense of individual power and, in turn, enhances self-esteem. We are

what we think. We can think ourselves into becoming better selves.
We are free, at last, from the overwhelming feelings of powerlessness and impotence. The decision to take control of our thoughts and attitudes will be the turning point. When we complement the decision by offering positive direction to our minds, we’ll quickly benefit from the advantageous outcomes.
I will utilize my personal power today. I will believe in positive outcomes. I will have hope.
