Change your mind

Have you ever changed your mind? If you’re like most people, you do it often.

It takes no great effort to change your mind. And yet the consequences of doing so can be significant.

At any given moment, you have the option and the ability to change your mind. By using that ability in a positive way, you can move your life powerfully forward.

If, for example, you’ve already decided that the day has been wasted and nothing is going to get done, you can change your mind. And then you can set about to create real value in the time that still remains.

If you’ve concluded that the situation in which you find yourself is hopeless, you can change your mind. If you’re thinking that nothing you do will make a difference, you can change your mind.

In fact, anytime you realize that your thoughts are working against you, choose to change your mind. Get your own thinking on your side, and you’ll have a powerful ally indeed.

— Ralph Marston
