I woke up this Monday. It was dark outside. I stayed in my bed, just to enjoy the warmth of it a little bit longer before I would feel the coldness of winter. Suddenly I heard the birds singing their song. It was such a sweet sound. “Spring is coming!” The words came into my mind like a wake-up call. I jumped out of my bed full of enthusiasm, made my coffee and started my day.
I felt full of energy and joy. All of my actions became fluent and I realized that I was much faster than in the last months.
Another time, I become aware how much my thoughts and my own inner dialogue influence my day. During winter, I spent a lot of energy to decide about the right moment to finally leave the warmth of my bed. Even though I now live in Spain where the winter is in average about fifteen degrees warmer than the temperature I used to experience in Germany, I tell myself every day: I do not like the cold. That thought was neither giving me energy nor motivation. The moment I thought, Spring is coming, this changed my mood. Actually, the day turned out to be a bit colder and without sun, but it did not matter. I felt energized and motivated only by my thought.
Our thoughts influence our reality. The good news is that we have the power to change them. When you wake up, observe your thoughts and your inner dialog. What do you tell yourself each morning? How do your thoughts make you feel? Write down any negative thought you might have. Turn it around into a positive mantra for your day. The best is to formulate them in the “here and now” by using present tense. Just to give you some examples:
- I am full of energy
- I am lovable
- I am attractive
- I can achieve all I want
Make sure that your mantra makes you feel positive. Repeat this mantra to yourself each day, at least ten times. Even though you might not believe the words in the beginning, say it to yourself every day. Have patience. Trust your process! Over time this mantra can help you make a significant change in your life!
