Did you know that one of the quickest and easiest ways to feel better in your day to day activities is through the power of choice – specifically through the power of choosing your own thoughts. Most people are not even aware that they can think about their thinking! There’s a fast way to figure out what is going on in your head that can make or break your day.
Grab a piece of paper and start writing down all the things you are thinking about. There might be many things, lots of to-dos, or there may be very few. Either way it’s all right to start with what you have rolling around in your mind. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar or handwriting, just dump. Think of it like dumping our your survival pack. We have to clean that out. Same as we have to clean out our thoughts that don’t help us.
Identifying thoughts that don’t help us feel good about ourselves or our situation is one of the first ways to begin to help you choose what you want to think about. Choosing to think only good, powerful thoughts that make it possible for me to do my job, handle my platoon or serve my family is a great start to bring happiness back into our lives.
