Your mind is quite powerful if you know how to use it.
Used right, your mind can steer you safely through every storm of life or make you drown in inches of problem. Most people don’t use it efficiently. Your mind is like a hotel with limited capacity, so be cautious of what you fill it with.
You are what you think!
Your mind is a container
Your daily thoughts are what fills your mind. You can’t achieve your goals if you’re thinking of non-goal related thoughts all day. It’s difficult for a student to pass his exams if his not paying attention to his exams. For a student to feel stressed before an exam shows that his giving importance to the exams. This stress will convert into preparations for the exam, which will help him pass the exams.
If you fill your mind with drugs, alcohol, and porn, it’s going to be difficult to make space for beneficial things.
To help you understand what you’ve filled your mind with and see what’s the first thing you think of in the morning. When your minds ‘reset’ after sleep, see what the first thing that comes to mind is. and more importantly, is that thought in line with your goals in life?
When you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel—David d burns
Most lowly people’s conversations usually revolve around similar topics:
- Gas prices have increased
- Immigration has taken all the jobs
- Problems of the government.
These and other similar topics have something in common. That is, the lowly people have no influence over them. So, that lowly person is wasting his time, energy and most importantly thoughts on things out of his control. Instead, he should be using his thoughts to better change himself.
Most successful people don’t waste their time thinking about things they have no control over.
Thoughts influence emotions, which affect behaviour
What you always think of will affect how you feel. This feeling, if strong enough, will influence your behaviour.
For example, if you always think that you are a failure, it will make you feel down and kill your confidence. This feeling will someday get you depressed. With little or no confidence, it will be much more difficult to get what you want in life.
But, inspiring thoughts will empower you. This positive mindset will boost your confidence and make it easier to get where you want in life.
Thoughts impact feelings, which impact behaviour. In essence, your experiences are a thinking problem. Control your thoughts to control your problem.
