Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are some key factors that you must pay attention to change your life, increase achieving success and balance in your life. The idea or comfort zone of procrastination will have to be replaced with motivation and certainty. The saying, someday or one day will no longer cut it.

There is a need for commitment and even that kick in the pants to get going. Some different choices will have to be made.

We can begin right now to choose to be grateful and also start with a grateful list. I use this process all the everyday and it allows me to slow my thoughts down and be in the present moment which is all I happen to have.

Developing the attitude of gratitude allows me to focus on some of my strengths and then I can muster up some thoughts of past successes. This simple process allows me to be grateful for the things in my life like:

The ability to breathe, walk, talk, think, ask questions, ask for help, write, chew food, and even help someone feel better about their present situation. I can do that just by sharing my experience, strength, and hope.

The gratitude list can go on and on which changes my negative thinking and gives me the opportunity to make my next action a better productive one that could help me in the long term of becoming successful.

Even though making a gratitude list seems like a very simple process, it can deliver a powerful punch to our confidence and productivity just by leaving the pity-party early.

Since we know that everything starts with a thought and we must use our thinking in the best way possible. From the book written by James Allen, As a man Thinketh. We are taught that we will become what we think about most. Where we put most of our energy will normally have us achieve those results.

So the best choice we make should be to desire to have better thoughts about successes that can be achieved in our own life.

“You have to see it in your mind before you see it in your pocket” is a statement that has always stuck with me.

We see every day new inventions, innovations, new companies started, records being broke, big money being made, even people hitting the lottery. All these results started with a thought of better positive thinking.

So by conquering fear and doubt in our thinking will allow us to conquer failure mainly by keep pressing on every day.

We are all given the same 24 hours a day= 1,440 minutes daily. That should be plenty of time to keep restarting our thoughts pointing them towards more positive, brighter, positive outlook on where we are in our lives could possibly change for the better regardless of our present conditions.

By committing to making a gratitude list, changing our stinking thinking and become more aware of being positive will help change your life.
