Good thinkers are always in demand. A person who knows how may always have a job, but the person who know how will always be his boss. Good thinkers solve problems, they never lack ideas that can biuld an oraganization, and they always have a hope for a better future. Good thinkers rarely find themselves at the mercy of ruthless people who would take advantage of them or try to deceive them, people like Nozi dicator Adolf Hitler, who once boasted ” what luck for rulers that men do not think. ” Those who develop the process of good thinking can rule themselves- even while under an oppressive ruler or in other difficult circumstances. In short, good thinker are successfull.
I’ve studied successful people for long, and though the diversity you find among them is astounding. I’ve found that they are all alike in one way: How they think! That is the one thing that separates successful people from unsuccessful ones.
And here’s the good news. How successful people think can be learned. If you change your thinking, you can change your life.
WHY YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR THINKING
It’s hard to overate the value of changing your thinking. Good thinking can do many things for you: generate revenue, solve problems, and create opportunities. It can take a while new level-personalities proffessionally. It can change your life.
- Changed Thinking is not Automatic
Sadly, a change in thinking does’nt happen on its own. Good idea rarely go out and find someone. If you want to find a good idea, you must searvh for it. If you want to be a better thinker, you need to work at it – and once you begin to becom a better thinker, the good ideas keep coming. Infact, the amount of good thinking you can do at any time depends primarily on the amount of good thinking you are already doing.
- Changed Thinking is Difficult
When you hear someone say,”Now this just off the top of my head, expect dandruff. The only people who believe thinking is easy are those who don’t habitually engage in it. Nobel Prize- winning physicist Albert Einstein, one of the best thinker who ever lived, asserted. “Thinking is hard work, that’s why so few do it. “Because thinking is so difficult, you want to use anything you can to help you improve the process.
- Changed Thinking Is Worth The Investment
Author Napolean Hill observed,” More gold has been mined from the thoughts of man than has ever been taken from the earth. ” when you take the time to learn how to change your thinking and become a better thinker, you are investing in yourself. Gold mines tap out. Stock market crash. Real estate investment can go sour. But the human mind with the ability to think well is like a diamond mine that never runs out. It’s priceless.
HOW TO BECOME A BETTER THINKER
I recommed you to do the following:
- Expose Yourself to Good Inputs
Good thinker always prime the pump of ideas. They always look for thing to get the thinking process started, because what you put in always impacts what comes out.
- Expose Yourself to Good Thinkers
- Choose to Think Good Thought
To become a good thinker, you must become intentional about the thinking process. Regularly put yourself in the right place to think, shape, strech, and land your thought. Make it a priority. Remember, thinking is discipline.
Ideas have a short shelf life. You must act on them before the expiration date. World war I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker said it all when he remarked,” I can give you a six-word formula for success: Think through then follow through.”
- Allow Your Emotions to Create Another Good Thought
To start the thinking process, you cannot rely on your feelings. In Failing forward, I wrote that you can act your way into feelings long before you can feel your way into action. If you wait untill you feel like doing something, you will likely never accomplish it. The same is true for thinking. You cannot wait untill you feel like thinking to do it. However, I’ve found that once you engage on the process of good thinking, you can use your emotions to feed the process and create mental momentum. Try it for yourself.
Once good thought does not make a good life. The people who have one good thought and try to ride it for an entire career often end up unhappy or destitute. Success comes to those who have an entire mountain of gold that they continually mine, not those who find one nugget and try to live on it for fifty years. To become someone who can mine a lot of gold, you need to keep repeating the process of good thinking.
