Finding a better path is all about thinking. Our mind does not control us; we control our mind.
Many people don’t realize that they are actually in control of the supercomputer in their head. They let their mind take them wherever it wants to go rather than consciously thinking and making choices. And for most people, myself included, if we don’t consciously choose to do positive things — to be all that we are supposed to be — our mind will lead us to making bad choices instead. Our mind will say, “I’m not going to get up and go to work today. I don’t feel like it. I’m going to call in sick.”
Changing your life’s path can seem like a huge, unattainable goal, but it starts with a very simple task — a tool that I give to my clients to help them change their choices and the way they think.
The task is easy.
First, every morning, say to yourself,
“What are the three achievements I’m going to go after today?”
Not a million achievements; just three things that are going to change your own world in the biggest way you can with your God-given ability.
Then at the end of the day, before you go to sleep:
Take inventory of the day’s EXPERIENCES:
- What are you grateful for this day?
- What PEOPLE are you grateful for today?
- What you were able to CONTRIBUTE to the world today?
You have the FREEDOM to make a choice to do and to think and to live and to be a person who is going to make a great impact on the world today and everyday.
Be that world changer who will make a difference in the world, and then show your gratitude to those around you.
In my book The Biggest Disability is a Bad Attitude, I share more about the habit of gratitude.
