Change Your Thinking – Change Your Life

How much time and money do you invest in yourself?  I am always amazed at the thousands of dollars individuals will spend on making themselves feel or look better that has no impact on them actually being better.

The Ziglar Be, Do, and Have philosophy is simple and straightforward.  You have to Be before you can Do, and you have to Do before you can Have.  Becoming the right kind of person starts when you put the right things into your mind.  If your thinking is wrong, the new clothes, the new car, the new relationship, the new job, all of these things will bring only temporary satisfaction.

Every day millions of dollars are spent by people buying the “pill” or the “system” that is going to make them skinny and rich.  Newsflash!  There is no “pill” or “system” that will work – unless you do.  And your ability to carry through on the work, long after the initial burst of hope promised in the marketing copy is long forgotten, depends 100% on your thinking.

Change Your Thinking – Change Your Life.

Would you like your life to be better?  It can be, and the choice is yours.  You are the only one who can change your thinking.  In fact, choose right now to improve your life by putting the right stuff into your mind.  Imagine if your doctor told you that unless you spent 20 minutes every day stretching you would live your life in excruciating pain.  In fact, if you missed stretching even one day, the next day the pain would be so unbearable that you wouldn’t be able to open your eyes.  It would take only one day of pain to justify the stretching!  Twenty minutes would be an incredibly small price to pay for a pain-free life.

Millions of people are “living in pain” because they are not “stretching their brain” with the good information.  Instead, their brains are filled with “toxins” that cause incredible “brain spasms,” resulting in broken relationships and lost opportunities.

When you choose to do nothing – you have chosen to live with the pain.
Change Your Thinking – Change Your Life.  The choice is yours.  Do you have 20 minutes a day?

    Ouch! This really hits close to home. This is important to remember, not only as an individual, but also as a parent. It’s important to provide our teenagers with more than just the tools to look good. We need to help them stretch their thinking in ways that will ultimately lead to successful living.

    I have been reading a book by humanitarian photographer David duChemin. In his book, “Within the Frame,” he talks about how expensive equipment is not what makes a photo great; a great photo expresses the photographer’s vision in a compelling way. So, a photographer hoping to create great photographs, needs to spend some time developing their vision.

    It’s interesting isn’t it? The things that really make the difference can’t be bought. Thanks, Tom, for the reminder that it takes discipline and being intentional to create change and improvement. (…I may need more than 20 minutes!)

    Thanks for the reminder that we are solely responsible for the results of our lives and that it all starts with our mindset coupled with daily training of the mind in correct thinking. How often I forget to put these two vital components together. How often I forget the interdependence that they have. I always want the outcome without the work. I just need to remember that life does not come naturally but only with persistent work will the results I desire come to fruition.

    Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement Tom. Keep up the good work!!!
