“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” — Abraham Lincoln
You are a product of the dominating thoughts that you allow to occupy your mind.
In truth, you are not too different from a magnet — you attract toward you whatever you feel from the inside. Therefore, make sure that you’re a magnet of joy, positivity, peace, and hope, and consistently work toward maintaining this uplifting state no matter what happens in the external world.
The Universe responds exactly to your thoughts, feelings, and words. So make sure you choose the optimistic route rather than getting trapped in the negativity loop. The law of cause and effect is always in action, therefore when you continuously maintain above-mentioned positive states in all circumstances, your vibes i.e. the vibrations of your thoughts and feelings go higher and higher, and as a direct outcome, your life becomes higher and higher as well.
There is absolutely no limit to how high your inner world can vibrate. The more you prioritize keeping your vibes high in your day to day life, the better the quality of your life gets.
In his private journal, Marcus Aurelius wrote, “The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”
So, think as many good thoughts as you can each day, and focus exclusively on doing those things that (genuinely) make you feel good. Within no time, you’ll raise your vibrations as well as your life.
