Think Your Own Thoughts

Take charge of your mind!

A thought just crossed my mind.
It is related to Wasted Thought.
But this time around, it has to do with channeling or directing our thoughts to the very things that we desire them to be on.

Lots of thoughts usually cross our minds!
In my opinion, we have the ability; not only to focus but also to direct. Our thoughts can be driven, changed, modified, discarded, magnified, etc.
Wasted Thought focused more on utillizing the thoughts that come to mind, and it is a very beautiful thing to do. Yet, it would even be more worthwhile, if our thoughts are directed, especially towards the results we desire.
It is possible to have an open book in front of you for an hour or more, without putting a single thought to the page you had been starring at.
On the other hand, you can put full concentration on a book, to the extent that you’ll extract both the information intended to be passed by it and the typographical or grammatical errors unintended to surface in it.
The simple difference is the mind.
The mind has both the power to drift and the power to focus.
You have the power to control your mind.
Since it can drift; you can shift it’s focus and since it can focus; you can choose it’s target.
With practice you can get more efficient and with consistency; more proficient.
Sadness and happiness are all from the mind; the only difference is the area of concentration.
Malice and admiration both sterm from the same root; they are only fruits that show the choice of seed.
Your likes and dislikes may not be logical but you have the power to change them to your taste.
If you love quality, then love the process too.
If you want to excel then focus on the steps.
The things you often ponder, often influence your results.
You have reason to wonder, why your looks and thoughts are same.
The mind has the power to enable self-destruct, but since your mind is yours do not leave it without guide.
Your mind can surely drive you, but it’s a two-way thing.
You either dwell in it’s choice or feed it with your own.
The body can be lazy and so leave tasks for the mind but the mind has no body and only knows of dreams. It can dream of sorrow and even dream of wealth but the choise of where to focus will often tell on you.
If it dreams of action, you will probably do a lot but if you have depression then it probably thought of hurt.
The things you think, affect you; so why not take control?
Your brain sure knows the things it wants, so feed them to the mind.
It’s only a lazy brain that roams without a choice.
Discipline starts within; it starts from what you think.
Because even before you take your bath, you’ve thought of what to do. Think happy thoughts; you’ll stay happy. Do happy things; you’ll become happy.
You think people are bad? You become suspicious. You think someone else is responsible for your? That’s the seed for laziness!
Think your own thoughts and do your own things; that’s the best way to Live Your Own Life.
Don’t just think that thoughts fly around. Pick an empty paper and hold a pen to it.
Fill it up with something and check how good it is.
If at all you try this, you’ll see how your mind can work. It will think of so much and yet, think of one. But by the time you are done, you’ll be glad if you did a good job. As long as you shun laziness in the aspect of disciplining your mind, you would be surprised at the kind of person you’ll turn out to be.

The way we relate with people and the bulk of the way we view ourselves all spring from the thoughts we habour both consciously and unconsciously.
Just as the body can develop a habit by consistently repeating certain things, the mind can do the same.
Consistently review your thoughts. Consistently compare them with your feelings towards yourself, other people, work, life, etc.
Consistently give direction and concentration to your thoughts and be sure to do that towards/upon the values and things that will improve your life.
Make it your responsibility to be in charge of the things you think and be serious about it.
Always evaluate your life; how organized you are, how you handle appointments, whether you meet deadlines, how well you tackle emergencies, how you feel around people, whether or not you finish tasks, etc.
Focus your thoughts on solving them and improving your character.
Observe the results over time.
Make modifications in your approach where necessary.
Make this excercise a part of your life.
Something gradually happens if you try it out; your mind begins to drift only around the spheres you often send it and it would only be focusing on the thoughts you often focus on.
Am I trying to seperate you from your mind?
Sounds funny but be sure to take charge of your thoughsts; it is the first step towards taking charge of your life.
I’m wondering why the tone of my voice is sounding authoritative, even when I’m writing and not talking!
Well, in my own opinion; the mind is dynamic but can be directed.
Taking responsibility of the direction that your mind goes, is simply taking responsibility of the direction of your life.
Why would anybody hesitate to do that, except for laziness or malfunction.
If you can take responsibility then do so fast. Time and tide, waits for no one!

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!
