What You Think
Self-confidence is a powerful thing. But there is something even more powerful, what you think. A wise and powerful man who single handily transformed the transportation industry once said, “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” This famous quote from Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford Company, encapsulates the very core of why positive thinking works. Yet, many people do not fully understand just how powerful their thoughts are. The mind is a powerful thing! It controls how you perceive yourself and the world around you. In fact, your thoughts are responsible for everything that happens in your life.
The Importance of Goals
An idea is just a dream until you write it down, then it becomes a goal. For anyone looking to turn a can’t into yes I can and their dreams into plans. It all starts with having a goal. But as the saying goes, “The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals. The tragedy of life lies in having no real goals to reach” ~Benjamin E. Mays. This point circles right back to your thoughts. At the very core of who we are, what we do, and just how much we’re capable of in life, are our thoughts. It is such a simple concept, yet to many, very complex. Far too often, many of us forget the power hidden inside our minds.
Remember, everything that exists in the world today, was once a thought. The chair you sit on, a book you are reading, even the clothes on your back began with a thought. So, the question is, how can we use the power of our thoughts to achieve our goals? The only thing we can control in life, is our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. So, to achieve your goals, you first have to decide what they are and why they are important. And, once you have, move towards every one of them with confidence. Remember, you can do it if you believe you can.
