Everything starts in your mind.
Every action starts with a thought. Every invention starts with an idea. Every outcome starts with a picture. Everything starts in your mind.
So, like Sister Hazel says, if you want to be somebody else, change your mind.
If you want to make more money, change your mind. Stop playing the victim and telling yourself that the little man never gets ahead. Stop saying that “this is all they pay” when you know that someone is making more. Change your mind. 85% of millionaires are first generation, self-made millionaires. You can be too.
If you want to be kinder and gentler, change your mind. Believe that you can be. Believe that you can break the cycle of violence, negativity, and harshness from your father or mother. Then do it.
If you want to be more outgoing, change your mind. Decide to be more outgoing and tell yourself every day, every hour, every minute if you have to that you are outgoing and that you are attracting people by your personality.
If you want to start your own business, change your mind. Decide to start your own business. Stop telling yourself every reason why you cannot do it and…well, just do it.
I used to listen to this song back in 2000 because it was catchy. It took me twelve long years to get it. But now I see that Sister Hazel has a valuable life lesson in their song. They are philosopher-poets indeed.
Enjoy the song and the lyrics below. Then share in the comments below how YOU are going to change your mind today. What negative thoughts do you need replace with positive thoughts? How do you see your life changing because of this?
Did you ever think
There might be another way
To just feel better,
Just feel better about today
If you never want to have
To turn and go away
You might feel better,
Might feel better if you stay
I bet you haven’t heard
A word I’ve said
If you’ve had enough
Of all your tryin’
Just give up
The state of mind you’re in:
If you want to be somebody else,
If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself
If you want to be somebody else
Change your mind…
Have you ever danced in the rain
Or thanked the sun
Just for shining- just for shining
Over the sea?
Oh no- take it all in
The world’s a show
And yeah, you look much better,
Look much better when you glow
what ya say
We both go and seize the day
’cause what’s your hurry
what’s your hurry anyway
