Change Your Thinking If You Want To Change Your Life

“A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks he becomes.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

I am a firm believer that we create our own happiness and success by the very things we think.  Much has been written on this topic by Norman Vincent Peale, Zig Ziglar, Bob Proctor, Louise L. Hay, to name a few.  And while they may each present the information a bit differently, they all agree that it is our own thoughts and belief systems that creates the life that we have.

Therefore, if you are not living the kind of life you would like to, I challenge you to take a closer look at the things that you say and believe to be true about yourself.  Are your thoughts and beliefs mostly positive and conducive to living a life of happiness and success?  Or are they negative and defeating?  If you find that your core beliefs and self talk are negative, you must apply the principles of positive thinking to reprogram those thoughts.

Two of my favorite websites that focus on improving your life through positive thinking are Morning Coach and Positive Thinking Radio.  Both of these websites also offer podcasts on Itunes that can be downloaded to listen to any time you want.  One of the best ways to change your thought habits is to immerse yourself in as much positive thinking as you can.  You can do this by reading books on the topic, visiting websites for more information, listening to podcasts, or even watching related videos on Youtube.  Changing your thinking will take some time but if you make the decision today to start focusing on the things you think and purposely changing them, you will begin to see a change in your world.

I am leaving you today with this video from the Larry King Live show in which he interviews a panel of experts on the benefits of positive thinking.  I hope you enjoy it.

Wishing you much happiness and success!


  1. I must say The whole panel on the larry king show are an amazing group of people.
    Great post

  2. If you like John Assaraf’s motivating lifestyle and words of wisdom, you will find The Complete Vision Board Kit to be a powerful to to realize your dreams and become a happier, more positive person! Here is a great link to download a free chapter of his new book: Let me know what you think!!

  3. Yes! It all starts with our thoughts. It’s not what happens to us that defines us; it’s how we respond to what happens to us.


  4. We are a product of our thoughts and emotions.
    Focus on the positive and make things happen for yourself.
    The USA is now locked in the grip of an economic upheaval that promises to change the way we do business and live our lives. We recognize that many individuals who reach the age of 60 are not physically, mentally, or financially prepared to enjoy the so-called “Golden Years.” In order to meet the challenges facing us in these days of great uncertainty, we must take a critical look at how problems are approached and solved. Traditional methods just won’t cut it anymore. The time is NOW to literally re-invent the way we think and solve problems related to the ways we work and live. We call it “personal re-invention.”

    The team is developing a program to help Boomers and Seniors create and implement Personal Re-Invention programs. The first step was to create Personal Re-Invention Guidelines. The next step will be to offer participation in Personal Re-Invention Programs. Those willing to engage in critical assessment and change of current mind-sets will be invited to participate in online forums focused on “personal re-invention.” Personal identity need not be revealed.

    I invite you to check us out at And remember, we are evolving this web site. When we are ready, you can participate in “Personal Re-Invention.”

    I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
