Your thought creates! Science has validated the fact that “what a person thinks” directly influences their environment. By thinking in new ways, a person can begin to alter what is happening in their life. Before acting, first consider what it is that you want, then project those thoughts out ahead of your actions. This is the technique of applied thought.
Healthy thinking is fluid and flexible, and considers a wider range of perspectives than one’s usual habitual viewpoint. Human beings have the tendency to view the situations they encounter according to established patterns that have been developed over time. This saves us time and is the easiest path to follow when we are faced with something similar to what we have dealt with previously. But once we lay down a pattern of thought, and it becomes our default way of looking at things, we can become “trapped” by it, and stop taking in new information which may be more current and useful. In addition, these well-worn patterns of thinking can be quite limiting, and cause us pain. And we might not even realize this is happening.
The healthy thinker is one who…
- chooses to consider a problem or issue from multiple points of view, and then selects a perspective that makes the most sense or creates a beneficial advantage
- strives to remain open to new ideas, and expands their viewpoint when new information comes in
- recognizes that they themselves play an integral part in the creative process of their own life flow
Again. . . your thoughts create, and everything in your environment responds according to your attitudes or intentions.
