If you’re like me, you encounter many challenges in life. As a woman who is dealing with infertility in additional to all the other important issues in life, you are more likely to be faced with challenging situations than many others.

The question we need to ask ourselves is, do we have a defeatist attitude, or do we have a “can do” attitude?

You can only use your life energy effectively to solve problems if you are in a state of mind of being solution-oriented.

No one can make decisions for you or find the best solutions to your situations. You can make better decisions if you are in a positive frame of mind.

The way you label yourself and think about yourself with your self talk will determine how you make good decisions about critical issues in your life.

For example, negative thoughts about yourself are like having somebody sit on your shoulder whispering bad things in your ear about your inability to be successful.

We are self-fulfilling prophecies. What you say and think about yourself does come true. I know you want to debate this topic, but research is now proving that we can change the molecules in our body by our thoughts.

It’s as if we unconsciously believe that we can say negative things about ourselves and get away with it. We mistakenly believe negative thoughts won’t have an effect on our future. But the truth is all those thoughts, self-talk, and labels keep us stuck with old behavior patterns.

You are now the sum total of all the programming others have given you and that you have reinforced through the thoughts you have had about yourself.

You have the power to train your mind to choose what you think, instead of allowing random thoughts to hold you hostage.

Your goal is to become inner-directed and focused, so that you decide what you want to think, rather than have your thoughts and emotions determined by the world around you. An untrained mind will have more emotional ups and downs because it is reacting to random thoughts. Focus on what you want with joy and enthusiasm.

Just like the earth, your brain does not discern what you plant. It will work just as hard to grow weeds as it will to grow beautiful flowers. You determine the seeds that are planted by what you say to yourself over and over.

To increase your self-awareness, take a notebook around with you for the next 2 weeks and jot down all the negative things you say and believe about yourself. If you’re not having the results in your life you want, it’s because you are holding yourself back with negative self-talk.

To move to the next level of success you must take responsibility for the caliber of information that you feed your mental computer daily. Sure, it’s a challenging task, but the rewards will amaze you!

This can be applied to anything in life, not just your infertility struggle!  Looking back I see how my infertility struggle has helped me become more aware of my thoughts and stay focused on the things I want rather then the negative.  Once I finally understood the power of my thoughts things started to work and finally there wasn’t a struggle anymore.  It’s a practice like anything, so you just have to keep working at it.
