Get Your Head On Straight

Don’t worry about the micro, the micro will follow the macro. Change the way you think, and you’ll change the way you act. Actions follow thoughts. Don’t count the days, don’t worry about tomorrow. Don’t even worry about today. Worry about how you think about today.

There’s a lot to be said for the psychological side to our behavior. If we go into a thing thinking we’re already defeated, then we are. If we go into a thing knowing our success is guaranteed, then it most likely will be, just by the flavor of our thoughts. Sun Tzu much?

You ever wonder about advertisers? You see a commercial a hundred times for some brand of cookies. You don’t even want cookies when you see the commercial, but the next time you’re at the store and you’re walking down the cookie aisle, you suddenly get a craving for cookies. Well, what the heck, let’s just get some cookies this one time. Well, which ones should I get? Oh hey, let’s try those ones we saw on that commercial, they sure did look good. You’ve lost and they’ve won.

THE SAME THING APPLIES TO YOUR DAILY THOUGHT PROCESS. Every day you start out with and maintain a line of thought, you will follow that line of thought. Are you going to drink today? Are you going to cheat today? Are you going to exercise today? Are you going to eat well today? Are you going to live well today?

If you choose wisely, you’ve won. If you choose poorly, you’ve lost.

You Have Chosen Wisely
