A Small Trick To Tune Your Day

I am sure some of you have experienced something like this.

You are in a good mood doing something at your desk when someone who has a reputation of being toxic and negative walks over to chat with you. Ten minutes later, the person leaves you, but somehow there is a mood transfer. You are feeling negative.

A cynical person thinks negative–>Speaks negative –> You hear negative –>You think negative–>You start feeling negative.

An inspiring person is high on life–>Says something inspiring–>You hear inspirational words—> >Inspiring thoughts sprout in your mind–>You start feeling inspired.

Science tells us that our thoughts are electrical signals. Thoughts have energy, and when people interact, there is an energy transfer from the person with the higher intensity of feelings to the one on a lower intensity. A toxic person is so because his negativity is of a very high intensity!!

You utter what you think, and others hear what you utter. We can transmit our feelings to others through our words. What we speak has the power to convey our thoughts and feelings, our fears, our sorrow, our joy, our love.

You have to hear or read negative stuff, and you will start feeling negative.

In the same vein, you listen to or read inspiring stuff; you start feeling inspired and positive. You want to feel happy. Listen to, watch, or read about happy people, happy stuff, you will start feeling happy.

I am reminded of this fantastic quote by Mahatma Gandhi that so eloquently brings out the potential and power of our thoughts and words.

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words for they become actions.
Watch your actions for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become your character.
And watch your character for it becomes your destiny.
What we think we become.

So adopt this small trick. Listen to or read about positive and inspiring people, stories, when you start your day- A podcast or a book of a high achiever or an inspirational or motivational speaker. You will start your day feeling positive and inspired. You will start your day being tuned to a higher frequency and you will rock the day, every day !!
