The way to direct your thinking is by asking yourself a question. A question gets your mind going in a new direction without suppressing what you're already thinking. The kind of question you ask makes the difference. If you ask, "Why is this happening to me," your answers won't help you.
The idea is to direct your mind by asking questions that put your attention on practical things, on accomplishments, on the future. If you find yourself worrying, for example, ask yourself something like, "How can I make myself stronger or better able to deal with this?" or "Can I get busy right now working on my goal - so busy I forget all about my worries?" or, "Is there some planning I can do now that will save me time later?" or even the question, "What is my goal?"
This will help turn the tide of your thoughts and bring you into a new state of mind because you're thinking positively. When you do that, you'll living your very best life! http://thedailylockerroom.com
