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. :-)

Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com)..

  2. 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.

    1. Hi Andy, thanks for the comments. Sorry for the late reply. But better late than never.

      It's been awhile since we exchange comments. Definitely because of my lesser involvement in the blogosphere nowadays.

      Always look forward to read your comments because there is always something new that I can learn from it. I googled about Maslow Hierarchy and it is interesting and something new for me.

      Guess the thinking I am more referring to, is the mindset change, from inward out. Not so much of the "think too much which led to procrastinating". It is definitely upsetting which I agree with you.

      I normally do not think too much, but I do think before I act. :-)

  3. Hi Rolf, write a bit more often and I might comment a bit more often ;-)

    Commendable that you do think before you act.
    Should be common sense, but unfortunately common sense is not so common any more nowadays.

    I am attending a workshop on mindfulness. It does cover some techniques to think before we act / react.
    Because life is maybe 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent of how we react to it.

    1. Hi Andy,

      Hope that the workshop is interesting. Agree on the 10:90 and it is true that common sense is no longer that common anymore.

      Among people around me, I witness so many decisions made that is truly unwise and high likelihood of sufferings in the mid-to-long term. Haizzz...

      By the way, I still write very often, but just that it is not in this platform and is only shared among my peers.

      Thanks for dropping by and have a blessed year end celebration ahead.

Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, I trusted the words of those fake loan lenders without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan i sold my car defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life has been piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already. Until last week a very close friend told me that she got a loan from PROSPER LOAN PLC that i should also give it a try. Not having an option I contacted them with a heart full of sorrow and skepticism i shyly follow their procedures comply to their policy, I was waiting for the bad news like every other loan company i contacted gave me then i receive a credit alert that my bank account has been credited with $250,000 which i initially applied for instantly tears of joy roll out of my eyes because I never believe it will come through.

  11. ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com
    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
