I want you to take a good look at a typical day of yours. I want you to begin to think about, in percentage terms, where your thoughts are focused.
10% on what I can do to help others
20% on taking care of your families needs
20% on worrying about tomorrow
30% on thinking about the past
10% on thinking about your goals
10% on thinking about finances
I want you to take a close look at those percentages. I want you to ask yourself and answer as honestly as possible, where are the majority of your thoughts focused and is that majority causing you to experience a particular reality within your life? If yes, then you now know, the first place to effect change in your life.
Once you know, you can then go about creating strategy for effecting change.
You can read or listen to more uplifting material on a regular basis. I always recommend this as one of the first steps to change because we are bombarded with information from t.v., radio, magazines, etc., it’s time for you to start filling your head with things that make you expand and grow as a human being.
So as a starting point, create a reading list of some books that are of interest to you but you never got around to reading and begin making your way through the list. If you think you don’t have enough time, then get them in audio format. Listen to them while you’re cooking, cleaning, driving to work or just before you go to bed. Make it an absolute priority to undertake this program of choosing to grow through choosing what information you wish to allow into your life. You can never take complete control over it, you can however take a step towards making sure that you are feeding your intellect some level of good on a regular basis.
Go ahead, start with the percentages!
