I find that I get in my own head sometimes, and that can be a lonely place to be but it can also be a reckless place to be.
Especially if I am consumed by negativity, it can be very hard to make good decisions.
Without feedback, my thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and what I think I know, can get me into trouble quickly if I don’t stop them from taking over.
Researchers have found that the average person has 50,000+ thoughts daily.
And of the “daily” thoughts, a staggering 80% is contributed to “negative” thoughts and 95% of those thoughts repeat themselves day after day.
I may not be able to control all the thoughts that pass through my noggin’, but I can control the ones I “focus” on.
We have to remind ourselves that we “learn” from the past and not “live” in it.
There’s nothing wrong with thinking, the issue emerges when you look “from” your thoughts. [Blind Spot]
Believing that you are always right is living in denial.
Being judgmental about yourself has the same deceiving effect.
Your thinking creates your reality. Your thoughts steer your actions.
If you do not like what you are thinking, have another thought.
In the big playbook, Paul says, “…you’ll do best by filling your minds on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, and gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put it into practice.” ~Philippians 4:8-9 Message Translation
The wisdom of the heart grows as the fear of the mind diminishes.
Keep looking for the blind spots and building a better you.
