How good are you at thinking?
Seriously – just think about that for a second. How good are you at thinking? You see thinking is something we can all do, in fact it is something we all do every day without necessarily being consciously aware of. It is estimated that we have in the region of 60 – 80K thoughts a day.
Yet, how conscious are you of the quality of these thoughts? How much do you work on the quality of your thinking?
Very few people or business’ fail due of a lack of hard work or effort, where they fail it is because of the lack of quality thinking.
Or if you prefer, as Einstein put it “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”
See, all personal growth starts with changing raising our awareness of our current thinking, and then changing our thoughts to discover a new level of consciousness. Our actions then follow.
Everything starts with thoughts.
The most successful business’ on the planet (be they Microsoft, Walmart, Apple, Amazon or Facebook) all started with a single idea or thought.
This is why every great self-help guide, from The Master Key by Charles F Haanel through the classic Think and Grow Rich from Napoleon Hill to today’s Secret by Rhonda Byrne, the Chimp Paradox by Dr Steve Peters or You are a Badass by Jen Sincero – they all have one unequivocal consistency. All personal growth and development is reliant on the quality of our thinking and the results we create are 100% dependent on the power of our inner thoughts.
This is partly the reason why I created Mindset. I was introduced to the powers of thought through a series of mentors who helped me to understand that everything in our lives is ultimately driven by what goes on inside our heads. From the goals we set ourselves, to the way our inner voice talks to us, through to the way we react when change happens or we face uncertainty, everything starts with the quality of our inner thoughts.
The wonderful thing about this is that these thoughts are ours to control and manage. We can ALL develop our ability to think, we can ALL change the course of our lives through changing the inner-most thoughts that are directing who or what we become.
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right” was Henry Fords way of expressing this. Once again a normal man who had unusual levels of success because of the way he thought. In fact, what is interesting is when you look inside the stories of the most successful people in pretty much all areas of human performance on thing stands out – the quality of their thinking.
