Call it Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or call it ancient wisdom, but I have learned that in order to change the outer circumstances of my life I must change my thinking.
I know there are some people in this world who believe that this simply isn't so, because I've met them. But I've tested this concept in my life many times, and I've read enough literature, and now science has proved it.
- The Bible tells us that as we believe, we will receive.
- Ernest Holmes, founder of Centers for Spiritual Living, has dozens of books, all talking about changing our thinking to change our lives. Here is a quote from The Art of Life, "Since you are fundamentally a mental being, you can think yourself into being unhappy and depressed or you can think yourself into being glad."
- Quantum physics: I am not a scientific sort of person, but in my quantum physics class I learned that there is scientific proof that our thoughts have power. The Observer Effect comes to mind, where it was proved that scientists effect the outcome of their experiments simply by observing them.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been tested and developed through many scientific studies as a very effective way to change one's life, and it begins with changing your thinking.
If you are having problems in your life, or you wish to change a circumstance in your life, or simply want to open up to new possibilities in your life, the place to begin is with your thoughts.
