Those who understand how to think well and those who are willing to make the effort to think well, understand the relationship between the level of their thinking and their level of progress. They also realize that to change their lives, they must change their thinking. John Maxwell accurately says, “your life today is a result of your thinking yesterday. Your life tomorrow will be determined by what you think today.” Benjamin Disraeli says, “Nurture great thoughts, for you will never go higher than your thoughts.”
One of the reasons people do not achieve their dreams is because they hope to get to where they want to go without changing their thinking. To make progress in any part of your life requires action, but the action you take depends upon the quality of your thinking beforehand; poor thinking will put a lid on your life.
Changing your thinking will have the biggest impact on changing your life. Consider when you change your thinking you can change your beliefs about yourself. When you change your beliefs about yourself you can change your expectations. When you change your expectations you can change your attitude. When you change your attitude you can change your behavior and actions. When you change your behavior you can change your performance and outcomes. When you change your outcomes you can change your life.
