Power of Thoughts
How to be in control of your Thoughts?
- Being aware
- Decision trees
- Clarity of thoughts
Make a habit of sitting down quietly once a day at least. No interaction with anyone, no music, eyes closed, not too cold a place neither too hot, no other sounds. Just you with yourself. Not too breezy a place either. Now focus on your breathing. Air traveling in from nostrils and out. Nothing else just listen to that sound and focus on it. After about 5 minutes of sitting quietly, the next step is to start thinking intentionally.
Remember, thoughts are the cause and the state of your life is the effect of it. Now there are two ways of intentional thinking. The end state of both ways is the same. You pick what is easier for you. The first way, think of a previous or current state of your life and reverse engineer to a thought that caused it. For example, I recently finished my MBA, which means somewhere in the past there was a single thought that came to my mind that I should do an MBA. Now before that thought, it was I want to do higher studies. Before that, I am not happy with my current state and I should do something about it. In the past, there was a situation that I did not like and
Clarity of thoughts:
Now that you understand, how one thought can lead to defining your state of being, pick that thought that will define your future state. Have a crystal clear idea of what that thought is; naturally, it will become a resolution and soon it will reflect in your actions. It happens automatically. All you have to do is, understand what that thought is (for example, saying No) and know why thinking that way is important (your end goal – promotion).
In the end, If you want to go deeper in the process or you get stuck, I will be more than happy to do one-on-one sessions and coach you in your journey . For your quick reference, I have converted the entire model into a one-page snapshot for you; its easy to remember, so put it on your wall, and follow through. Wish you all the best!
