Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

John Maxwell says that everything begins with a thought, which is why we need to examine our thinking. What you think determines what you do and who you are. When you change your thinking, you change your beliefs.

Thoughts about Thinking:
i. Everything begins with a thought.
“Life consists of what a man is thinking about all day.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

ii. What we think determines who we are. Who we are determines what we do.
(Thinking, Becoming, Doing)
“The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.” – John Locke

iii. Our thoughts determine our destiny. Our destiny determines our legacy.
“You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your
thoughts take you.” – James Allen

iv. People who go to the top think differently than others.
“Nothing limits achievement like small thinking; nothing expands possibilities like unleashed
thinking.” – William Arthur Ward

v. We can change the way we think.
The number one challenge to making personal changes = feelings
Major Premise: I can control my thoughts.
Minor Premise: My feelings come from my thoughts.
Conclusion: I can control my feelings by controlling my thoughts.

Think big picture: This allows you to see beyond yourself
Think focused: This allows you to remove distraction
Think creatively: This allows you to get out of your box of limitations
Think realistically: This allows you to have a foundation for change
Think strategically: This allows you to have a plan for change
Think possibilities: This allows you to look for and receive the best
Think reflectively: This allows you to gain a true perspective of yourself
“Although not all change is the same, there is one common element to change – THINKING.”
