07 Jan Change Your Mind
It is believed that we have about 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day! With so many thoughts going through our heads on a daily basis, it is critical that we spend our time thinking about the right things. Our thinking impacts everything about us whether it be our decisions, our actions, our moods and even our views of our self-worth.
There are countless books, videos and podcasts that focus on the power of positive thinking. I am sure that all of these have helpful tips and resources, but probably the best guide on what we should think about can be found in Philippians 4:8. According to this verse, we should think about whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy. Over the next several weeks I want to delve into each of these individual areas with the goal of challenging ourselves to “change our minds.” If we want to have a positive, productive year we need to start by making sure we have about 25 million positive, productive thoughts.
Are you up for the challenge?
