We have been told importance of thinking many times since childhood. Thought become things so be careful of your thoughts…!!! Everyone around us says, “Always think positive“. Our parents used to says, “Always have Good friends” which they indirectly mean to say that so that your thoughts will always be positive and Good, you will study well. Even Budhha had said, “What we think, We become“. Lot of great books like “Think and grow rich”, “Magic of thinking big”, “As a man thinketh” have been written explaining importance of thinking and How to think?
Thinking is root of human life which starts persons intellectual cycle which in turn is base of humans materialistic and spiritual life.
Lets see How it actually flows:
- What you think?
Kind of thoughts one have in mind forms that persons thinking pattern or mind set which forms that persons belief system. Thoughts are provoked by what we know? what we see? What you know comes from what you have learned/studied. Your knowledge. Whatever inputs you fed to your mind through five senses in day today life. You learn from your own experiences as well as experiences of others. so thoughts can be positive or negative depending on your inputs to your mind. so its compound effect of activities in day today life. Today’s good act will lead to great good initiatives tomorrow and vise versa.
- How you feel?
What you think results in How/What you feel about yourself and others, it forms your attitude. Your feelings comes from your belief system which is nothing but your thoughts. Lets say your doing particular task at office OR going for an exam and if you think “you can do it”, If you believe in yourself then that thought itself changes your body language. You feel confident, your attitude becomes positive. If your are at this stage then half battle is already won. However if you think that “you cannot do it” then you loose confidence. Even you handshake with people changes, you avoid eye contact while talking with people.
You should feel good about yourself. You should have high self esteem. One of the best way to achieve high self esteem is always complete whatever promises you make to yourself. First build this habit then you will have high self esteem. Once you achieve this stage, follow all the promises you make to others as well, it will result in more higher self esteem.
- Taking Action?
The way your feel(your emotions) about yourself(your attitude) determines what kind of action you will take. To achieve your dream in life you need to work on it. You need to go through that pain. But what will inspire you to take action towards your dream? OR to do that work? Yes, your emotions.
Basically emotions are nothing but energy in motion. If you have energy then only you will be driven for the action. Your actions will be in directly proportional to your feelings. Stronger the emotions, stronger will be actions. You will take all possible efforts to complete that task with best of your ability. It will be your world class craft. But if you don’t have any positive feelings then you will do that task just for the sake of doing and it will be mediocre work.
- What are your results?
As you sow, so shall you reap. We don’t need any rocket science to explain that your action defines your results. If your actions were stronger then your results will be wonderful, awesome. Your today’s actions defines how your tomorrow will be. So be conscious and aware of your results. If you win OR got great fruit of your hard work then celebrate. Amplify feelings of your victory. It will give you more energy for taking more stronger actions. If you loose feel the pain. let painful results teach you some new lessons. Whatever it may be never be afraid of your results, just accept them and take complete responsibility.
- How are you living?
