When life seems overwhelming, are you able to look ahead and see light at the end of the tunnel?
Sometimes, life's challenges are tough to deal with. You will succeed if you focus your thoughts on how to overcome the challenge.
Remove All Weeds
Negative thoughts are like weeds in a garden.
Once a weed is allowed to flourish, the garden is quickly overtaken. But, if you weed the garden before the weeds spread, you will end up with a beautiful and bountiful garden.
And. like gardens, you must work at removing weeds every day just like you must work everyday to keep motivated. Tending to lifeís garden is not easy. There are always excuses that can be used to put off what should be done. And, just like a garden needs nourishment and watering so does oneís spirit. It needs to be nurtured daily and one way to help to do this is by reading inspirational words of wisdom.
And, another is to reduce the number of negative influences in your life Ė these are the people who do not support your growth, or who relish in seeing only the negatives or possible problems you will encounter along the way.
You Control It
Do not allow anyone else to tend to your garden - it is up to you and you alone to ensure that it grows and is always at the forefront of your thoughts. Make your garden a beautiful one and one that is envied by all those other garden owners who just sit around and hope someone else will come along to tend to their needs.
You are the only one who can control the way you think. Make sure you nourish the positive thoughts, and weed out the negative ones!
