Have you ever wondered about the power of your thoughts and how influential they are in your life? Socrates said, “A life unexamined is not worth living.” So examining your thoughts is a worthwhile exercise.
I have always been fascinated with the way the mind works. Thought examination is what psychologists call today Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The more I read on the subject the more I came to believe that thought examination and thought management were powerful tools. I eventually came to learn that there is a great need among people today to understand their thoughts without all of the psycho-mumbo-jumbo.
So I wrote a book called Please Change Your Mind. I wrote it from the patient’s perspective rather than a doctor’s perspective. Years ago I was hospitalized with depression. I was treated by some wonderful doctors who started started me down this path of thought examination. As a layman, I tried to put some profound concepts into very simple terms. I even created a process diagram that shows how the mind works that is simple and easy to use.
So, in a nutshell here is what I learned – your mind is the most powerful thing you have, the Epicenter of Control in your life. Gandhi said, “A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.” Everything in your life flows from your thoughts. So it follows that if you can learn to control your thoughts, you can learn to control your life. In fact, the mind is so powerful that you don’t feel anything, say anything, or do anything without first thinking something. And if that’s true, then there is nothing more capable of changing your life, than changing your mind.
So, this is my first blog. In the weeks to come I will be sharing much more about the power of your thoughts. I will be giving specific examples and offering specific techniques that you can use as you examine your thoughts. To learn more you can visit www.SteveWhiteToday.com
