Think right and live right

A lot of times, we upgrade ourselves by learning a new skill in order to be more knowledgeable.

We tend to focus on what the “upgrade” can do for us externally. For instance, the focus is to have a pay raise, to receive a promotion, to get a better job or maybe even because it is fun and interesting. This type of “upgrade” is usually an “outside in” changes. It is normally temporary.

The most important change is normally not to externally add a skill to achieve a “job title promotion or salary increase”. It is to change the way we think. In other words, our mindset changes from inside out and not outside in.

If you attended a course, and it changes the way you think from inside out, then this change will be permanent.

Many courses do the opposite. It starts from the outside. What you wear, what you eat and drink, what places you go to and who you mingle with and try to make us good by changing the external. But it does not work.

We need to be changed inside out. Once we are changed in the way we think, we will be changed in the way we live.

You cannot think right and live wrong.

You cannot think wrong and live right.

The way you think determines the way you live. We need to have a renewed mind.

The essential feature of the people of this current age is that they are self-centered. They always face issues of every decision from “what will this do for me? what will I get out of this?“

When our mind is renewed, you are normally not self-centered. You tend to put yourself more into other’s people’s shoes because of your empathy, care and concern for others.

Then you will see things in from a bigger perspective. The big picture suddenly becomes crystal clear. You become more holistic and definitely wiser.

A self-centered person can be clever and earns lots of money.

But a wise person makes the most out of life.

Your choice?

    1. Hi temperament,

      Long time no see, hope all is great! Ya, there are things in life we cannot choose and things we can.

      Hopefully we can change them, by our actions. Not so easy, I know.
      What I did it in work, where the more they want, the more I give, until they also paiseh. Bcos they know I not stupid but how come keep giving w/o anything in return.

      Later I shared testimony with them and pray for them, and it somehow changed them & our relationships strengthened.

      Still, it is not easy for human effort. :-)

I was in desperate need of a loan in other to be free from debt and financial bondage that was place on me by my ex husband. It was really bad that i have to seek for help from Friends,family and even my bank but on one could assist me because my credit score was really bad. So i was browsing with my computer and saw some testimonies from people Chester Brian assisted with a loan, then i decided to contact him on his email BRIANLOANCOMPANY0@GMAIL.COM, then i received a mail from them and i did all that was asked from me.

If you need a loan do contact the best loan lender of all time Chester Brian on his email: BRIANLOANCOMPANY0@GMAIL.COM or Call/Text +1(803) 373-2162

  3. Hi Rolf, looks to me that you have arrived at the top of Maslow's hierarchy of needs - Self-Actualization - for a while now. Congratulations. Looking forward to read more about your thoughts.

    So true, everything starts with a thought. If we cannot change the very fabric of our thoughts we will never be able to change reality, and will never, therefore, make any progress.
    Spending time in mindful thoughts might be a good investment for everyone.
    But thinking can be very upsetting for me. It tells me things I’d rather not know.

  4. Mobdro is a great application that allows users to stream videos directly to Android devices. But unlike what we usually see, Mobdro lets you choose an entire channel rather than individual shows.
    This means that you can have full access to non-stop shows from channels you wouldn't normally see on TV. So want more insight on the Mobdro app? Check out this website Mobdro for BlackBerry
