Writing a New Story: Being Brave Enough to Start Over

Welcome to SHIFT Your Mindset with The Gratitude Coach.

Today’s practice is all about writing a new story.

According to Napoleon Hill, in Think and Grow Rich, you have ABSOLUTE CONTROL over but one thing: your thoughts.

This is the most significant and inspiring of all facts known to man! It reflects man’s Divine nature.

This Divine prerogative is the sole means by which you may control your own destiny.

If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else.

While you are thinking about how much control you have, it’s also important to ask yourself what your story is. What’s your story? Everyone has one.

Stories can be good, or they can be bad. If you have a bad story, it’s OK to release it and let it go.

No one ever said you had to keep carrying the emotional baggage holding you back.

One great practice you can engage in is sitting down and writing a new story. Sit down today and write down what you would like to see happen in your life from this moment forward.

Don’t think about the past. What kind of a story would you write?

The best chapters of your life are the chapters that have not yet been written.

You have the power to start writing a new chapter with each new day.

Bless your ability to write a new story today. Bless the journey you have traveled and make a pact with yourself to not let one bad chapter define the rest of your life.

You can learn from that chapter and rewrite your story at any time.

The best chapters of your life are the chapters that have not yet been written.

You have the power to start writing a new chapter with each new day. You can create a new life with each and every thought you think.

Know that every ending is yet another new beginning. Your story is never-ending and ever-flowing and it always has a new chapter, no matter how many times you fail.

Whatever you put out will return to you in kind. The choice is always yours as to how you live your life.

Be someone who really believes that everything you need comes to you.

Know that all obstacles and undesirable circumstances fall away. You can achieve anything. You can be anything. You can manifest anything. That is your truth. You should expect nothing but cooperation and assistance. Believe in the power of your dreams and the power of your words. Everything starts with YOU. So, take a moment to think about what kind of changes you want to make in your life and start writing!

There are no failures – only learning opportunities.

Bless ANY AND ALL times in your life when you may have placed limits on your magnificence!

Know how strong you truly are. Like the yin and the yang, know that to succeed in life, you must experience all aspects of a situation, good and bad, limited, and unlimited.

Be brave enough to start over and find the courage you need to move forward in a beautiful way. You are strong. You are not flawed, you are magnificent.
