Big ideas for feeling good

Imagine how good you would feel if hope and appreciation continually filled your heart and your mind.

Train your imagination to inspire you with images of joy. Daydreaming empowers; worry devours. When you don’t see happiness in your life, imagine it! Daydreaming can make your day.

If you believe that you’re happy, then you are. To be happy, all you have to do is to convince yourself that you are.

Even when you’re discouraged, you can still dare to daydream about happiness (and doing so will make you happier).

Increase the positive velocity of your curiosity. Be quick to look for the good in every situation.

Curiosity killed the cat’s sadness and inspired the elephant’s happiness. Curiosity is a cure for unhappiness.

When the going gets tough and you feel like you’ve had enough, keep going. Endurance wins!

If you let your think tank run out of gas, your mind will get stuck in a rut. Regularly refuel your brain with inspiring thoughts.

Train your memory to remember the best and your forgettery to forget the worst. You can reimagine your life and improve your future. Persistent imagination is powerful enough to bend reality into it’s image.

If you look closely at the elephant in the room that feels like a nuisance, it may be an opportunity hiding in plain sight. When opportunity knocks, it’s frequently disguised as an elephant trying to find room to inspire your mind.

Everybody’s got problems,
You’re not alone.
Realizing that
Can make you strong.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
