We need to seriously think about what we think about.
As intelligent people, we are governed by our thoughts. And as critical thinkers, we need to govern the thoughts that govern our lives.
We live our lives with the illusion of intellectual and emotional freedom. But we need to take intellectual and emotional control of who we are, what we are, and the ends to which we run our lives.
The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a hell of heaven or a heaven of hell.
If the quality of your life is not what you wish it to be, it is probably because it’s tied to the way you think about your life. If you’re not aware of your thinking, you have no chance to correct it. If you don’t see any problems in it, you won’t be motivated to change it.
Few people realize the powerful role that thinking plays in their lives. Few ever gain significant command of their thinking. Therefore, most people are either victors, or victims, of their own thinking. If you discovered the power and the role of thinking in your life, you would achieve a more significant professional goal.
We must continue to step up our thinking in order to improve our business. Staying the same is a recipe for falling behind. Too many jewelers continue to do what they have always done, yet wonder why they can’t grow or improve their business. It requires a change in the way they think.
The price you have to pay to get to the next level requires that you decide what level you want to be on, and, then, how you are going to get there. If you have no plan, any road will lead you there. But it likely won’t be where you want to go.
At FOCUS, we help change your thinking, one principle at a time. Hopefully, this is good “food for thought.”
