Sunday May 15th 2016 -“You have power over your mind- not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength” Marcus Aurelius

A few weeks ago I decided to do more inspiration posts – Sunday April 10th 2016 – Inspiration Posts

Today I want to talk about the quote “You have power over your mind- not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength” – Marcus Auelius.

I came across this quote a long time ago and it has stuck with me ever since. I have even referred to this quote in my book.

quote

The reason I love this quote so much is because it made me realize that I am the true sorcerer of my destiny. I could do as much as what my mind will let me. If you believe so much in your mind that you can achieve something, it really is possible.

This is also relevant for negative thoughts. When you feel down or upset about something, think about how you can change it. Think about who the only person is that can make you happy. Forget about everything else in life, you have power over your own mind to make yourself happy.

If you are constantly thinking positively, it becomes habit and the more you can constantly achieve.

Finding the strength to think positively can be a challenge sometimes if outside events keep getting you down. But I’ve learnt that you can’t change the people who don’t like you, or the mistakes you’ve made in the past, you can only learn from them, and you are the only person that has the power to do this.

The mind is a very powerful tool and can go one of two ways. To keep your mind on the positive side of the spectrum, keep practicing happiness everyday.

Say hi to people, smile and wave and people will smile back. Happiness is contagious as well as positive people. Surround yourself by positivety and the ‘outside events’ may not seem as bad.

Have a happy Sunday beautiful people ❤
