Shaping Your Thoughts

If you get to a place where your thoughts are concrete, simple, and focused, and you take deliberate action, then your thoughts become reality.

Transforming something in your life whether it’s your attitude, mindset, financial situation or bringing change into a relationship can seem like an overwhelming task. But as the old saying goes, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” The way you change your life is one thought at a time. Your thoughts set the direction of your life. If you need to change the direction you are headed, you simply need to change your thoughts in that area. When a thought comes to your mind that “you’re never going to get well; this is your lot in life,” don’t dwell on that. Don’t sit around and have a pity party. No, immediately reject it and replace it with the truth. I encourage you to be aggressive in taking every single thought and making it stand in truth. Stay determined, stay focused and keep stating the truth because you can change your life, one thought at a time. Are you shaping your thoughts by the truth today?

Your Thought Patterns

Negative thoughts are the nails that build a prison of failure.

When you allow your mind to focus on the negative you will begin to fail at things that you used to succeed at. Never let your mind wander to the negative perspective. As a Champion you must focus on the positive side of the situation. This is especially true when it comes to thoughts about yourself. Always be positive in your self talk and thoughts. There are many people that have gotten so accustomed to negative thought patterns that they think that’s the norm. This is not true. No matter the situation there is a positive perspective. To be unstoppable you can’t be a negative thinker. You have to develop a positive mindset. Relentless competitors have the mental toughness to maintain a positive outlook at all times. Train your mind to stay in the positive thought pattern. You will see your failures turn into successes when you do. What is your thought pattern today?

Break Camp

Are there some tent stakes in your life that you need to pull up so you can press forward?

Maybe you’ve stopped in a temporary place, and it’s time to keep going. Maybe you’ve gotten comfortable and decided that your dreams are never going to happen. Your health is never going to improve. I’m asking you to pack up your tent, gather up your stuff and start moving forward. You may have taken a temporary delay, but that’s okay. That didn’t stop your destiny. Today can be your new beginning. God is breathing new life into you. There are greater victories in front of you! Remember, the first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you don’t think you can be successful, then you never will be. If you don’t think you can overcome the past, meet the right person or accomplish your dreams, then you’ll get stuck right where you are. You’ve got to change your thinking. Get rid of a negative, defeated mentality. Make room in your thinking for the new thing you are supposed to do, pull up your stakes and move on. Are you ready to break camp?

Process Thinking

Let others judge you by your results, and nothing else; it’s none of their business how you get where you’re going.

Your process is your process. Others will not understand some of the processes within your process. Never let that be a distraction for you. It’s not up to them to evaluate your process. What they need to look at are the results from your process. Keep working and making the necessary changes that are needed. It is always a good idea to get good advice from those that have gone before you and made it. However, when people begin to criticize you be sure you are able to stand your ground. In order to stand your ground you have to be on a strong foundation. This is why it is vitally important to have a solid process. Your plan for your purpose and destiny has to be strong. Let your results speak for themselves. What does your process say about you?

Good Thinking

It’s time to stop listening to what everyone else says about you, telling you what to do, how to act, how you should feel.

To be a person of purpose and destiny you have to know the truth about yourself. That won’t happen if you are listening to everyone else tell you who are you. Too many people like to try to tell others how to live their life. There comes a time when you have take responsibility for your own thinking. Your thinking will lead you to your full destiny. When you have to answer for your actions good and bad; you need to be able to be able to stand on your own thinking. By all means get good, smart advice from wise Godly people. However, bottom line is you have to be you. Main reason is everyone else is taken. Being mature enough to do this will make your destiny even better. Develop the discipline necessary to be the person you are supposed to be. What are you thinking today?

Wisdom Thinking

Wisdom–genuine truth–holds the key to one’s thinking.

There is something to be said about gaining wisdom. Wisdom isn’t about being smart. There are are plenty of smart people that aren’t wise. However, I would consider people of wisdom are smart. Wisdom is one key ingredient needed to live with purpose. The way you think and how you make decisions are key to living in your purpose. Wisdom will lead you to the truth too. This is very important. Truth, you see, is always true. Controlling what you think on is necessary in living out your destiny. Focus on your quest for truth in your thinking. Your purpose is about truth not facts. As you move closer toward you destiny go after truth. Find the truth about yourself and what you are here to do. Do you have wisdom in your thinking?

Thinking

If you do not want an average life, you must be on guard against conclusions made by conventional thinking.

Look at all above average people and you will notice one common thread; unconventional thinking. To them the thinking is conventional, but to the average, the majority, their thinking is anything but conventional. You see, average people think alike. Average thinking is just get by, find a shortcut, get out of any extra work thinking. The above average thinker is anything but this type of thinking. To live an above average life, which people of purpose live, you will have to learn to think unconventionally. If you think like everyone else does, you will get what everyone else gets. That’s the pattern for average people. However, just by the fact that you are reading this tells me that you are not average. Continue to raise your level of thinking to raise your level of life. What is your level of thinking?

Thinking About It

What a person thinks is determined by how a person thinks.

Did you know you can limit your life by dwelling on the wrong things? So often, wrong thinking keeps people stuck right where they are. If you think you’ll never accomplish your dreams, those thoughts will hold you back. If you think you don’t have the talent, the connections or the funds, then you are limiting yourself. You are blocking what God can do in your life. It’s time to take the limits off and trust God. Just because you don’t see a way doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have a way. God can bring one opportunity across your path that will thrust you to a whole new level. If you’ll shift your focus from this earthly realm and start looking with your eyes of faith, you’ll see His unlimited possibilities for your future. Take the limits off by setting your thoughts on what God can do in your life! What are you thinking today?
