26 - Thought Exercise


It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about. - Dale Carnegie

How often do you mind read? Really, how often do you you think 'they hate me, they think I'm stupid, they want to hurt me ect.?' probably more often than you first though. These mind readings make us feel bad and creates a devide between us and others. Instead I recommend thinking 'they love me, they think I'm Awesome, they like me, they're checking me out ect.' when walking by strangers. People you have no bias towards, but because you choose to think like this you'll feel great and you'll be much more likely to create stronger bonds with people as a result.
