Minds are like parachutes - they only function when open.

Watch what you think

Watch what you think, because your life is certainly doing so. Choose wisely the thoughts that fill your mind, because those thoughts lead to the actions that fill your day.

Thinking feels easy, seems to come naturally and automatically. Yet the most useful, beneficial thinking calls for intention, focus, discipline and a strong sense of purpose.

Thinking, at its best, is more than just repeating what you’ve already heard or already thought. Each thought is an opportunity to create a new, unique vision of the world in your mind.

If you catch yourself repeating the same old thoughts, or letting others do your thinking, stop. Remind yourself of the great things that come from working to develop your own original thinking.

Call upon your purpose to guide you and encourage you to put work into your thinking. There’s no limit to what you can think about, so let purpose help you by focusing your thoughts.

Your thoughts form the basis of the way your life unfolds. Make them powerful, purposeful, positive, and constantly improving.
