What mindset do you hold? What are your daily affirmations?
Before the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking became ill, he described his life as a ‘pointless existence’. He drank far too much and did very little in terms of work. It was after he discovered that he may only have a few years to live, that his outlook on life suddenly took on an urgency and a new meaning. In fact he was actually happier than he had ever been. He explained the paradox this way: ‘When one’s expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything that one does have.’ When you’re told that you only have a limited time left to live, it transforms your whole perspective on living. Things you overlook suddenly become meaningful: the laughter of children, a sunrise or sunset, the love of friends and family, or just a walk in the park. The most miserable people in the world are those who believe that life ‘owes them’. They’re never happy, because they never believe they get what they deserve’. So what was he saying? This: Instead of competing, comparing, and complaining, focus on the good things, enjoy them and develop an attitude of gratitude.
Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life… ❤️➕
