Just Thinking (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 338)

just-thinking

Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

In life, we are always involved in a battle. Sometimes, it is a physical one — a real war between good people and bad people. Other times, it is an emotional battle, a spiritual battle, a mental battle. We have to fight to control ourselves, against our vices, our impulses, and our worst selves. We are engaged in a battle to discipline our behaviors, to focus on things that matter, and to think about positive and good things. In a way, we have to fight to be better, to do good, and to think positively because it’s always easier to do the opposite. Read more…

“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”
— Frank A. Clark

Our thoughts have the power to control our lives. The more we think, the more we act. Sometimes, our thoughts are good and they propel us to do good. Other times, our thoughts are the exact opposite of who we are at our core and we act accordingly. Changing the way we think can change the way we live and make all the difference in our future. Here are 6 things we waste time thinking about and what we can do about it: Read more…

Why We Overthink and How to Stop (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 308)

“If you believe that your thoughts originate inside your brain, do you also believe that television shows are made inside your television set?”
— Warren Ellis

Most of us do our best to think and be positive, but sometimes we allow ourselves to slip into negative ways of thinking and behaving that are detrimental to our lives and bottleneck our overall progress in life.

We might stress about past mistakes or failures. We may over-analyze normal experiences, encounters, and interactions with people we know very well. Occasionally, we read into things that aren’t really there. We tend to associate one bad experience with all of the other bad things that have happened in our lives. Read more…

Stop Thinking Below the Line (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 297)

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #29)

“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”
— Thomas Edison

Everything rises and falls on behavior. The decisions you make and actions you take all depend on your internal and external behavior. Some would argue that there are other factors involved like culture and environment, and they’re probably right. But life is ultimately like a cause and effect. Your behavior is the cause that produces either a negative or positive effect. Read more…

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #26)

“We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.”
— Anthony Hopkins

Why are people more depressed and anxious now than ever before? Why do we feel more tired, stressed, and frustrated than happy, healthy, and fulfilled? What is the one silent enemy that often lies at the root of most of our problems?

It’s overthinking. And overthinking has become an epidemic that aims to destroy us at the core of who we are. For many people, it’s not until we’re older and have lived much of our lives with painful experiences and regrets to show for it, that we realize the greatest enemy of the self is in our mind.

3 Other Dangerous Habits to Dump Now (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 280)

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”
— Samuel Johnson

One of the most powerful forces in our lives is habits. If you exercise for ninety minutes every morning before work and can’t fathom the thought of not feeling better about yourself afterwards, that’s a habit that will keep you healthy for a long time. If, however, you cram breakfast, lunch, and dinner into one massive meal near the end of the day and you can’t imagine eating three solid meals, that’s a habit that might be setting you up for drastically negative health consequences later on in life. The habits we form will be either good or bad. The commonality between the two is that once we develop a habit, it can be difficult to break it. Read more…

How the Mind Plays Tricks on Reality (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 264)

“We know what we are but not what we may be.”
— Ophelia in Hamlet

Your mind is the greatest asset you have. Yet, very few people actually spend time thinking about the way they think. Reality, however, is uniquely shaped by our thoughts — thoughts about ourselves, other people, and the world around us. If you develop cognitive processes that perpetuate inaccurate interpretations about yourself and your abilities, you’ll likely limit your accomplishments. Read more…
