“You are one thought away from changing your life.” -Rita Schiano
Keep this in mind whenever you are thinking of what one good thought can do for you. You could be one good thought away from being successful in your life. You can be one thought away from finding the right answers you seek in life. You can be one good thought away from changing the world for the better. All of this and more can be achieved simply with one good thought.
It is easy to be deterred from seeing that you are one thought away from success when you have the fears of yourself and others, past failures and experiences, and society in general working against you. They all can be more than capable of beating down your confidence level and putting you at rock bottom thinking that you will never be able to think of how to change your life and the world.
I refer back to when I was living in a house with a hole in the roof because it truly explains how I was one thought away from changing my life, but I did not know it until I decided to enlist in the military. From 2000-2005, I never lived up to my potential and accepted the status quo. It seemed like everything that I would do to try to change my reality never worked.
When I had the thought of enlisting in the military in 2006, it was a tough decision because most people I had known did not agree with me enlisting. I also had to go against my own fear of failure. That one thought that was viewed as a bad decision then wound up being a life changing decision for myself and my family. We have been able to live in and travel various places around the world, grow professionally and personally, and experience a life where we do not have to struggle.
I encourage you to not give up just keep coming up with the next thought. Have faith and put work into making the thought a reality. Even if it does not work out the way you want, just come up with the next thought, have faith, and put in work. Do not stop until you find the right thought that will change your life. Let’s remember that all it takes is one thought to change your life in an instant!
I have one simple question to ask you since you are one thought away from changing your life and being successful:
- Are you ready to give that next thought a try to see what happens?
