Effective thinking leads to efficient life.
Remember the times of childhood? We were all taught of to how to speak, how to sit and stand, how to behave and react. All of these are absolutely helpful teachings of course. But there was one thing which was missing here. Guess what? Its effective thinking. We were not taught of how to think!
Well, thinking effectively itself is an art. If we take a look at successful people, they have one thing in common, that is effective thinking. Success itself is a mindset. Success is a byproduct of effective and realistic thinking combined with dedicated actions. Our thoughts create the reality. So mastering the art of realistic and effective thinking manifests wonders in life.
How to think effectively then? Firstly we have to think about our thinking. Meta-cognition is the thing which I am referring to. You need to get aware of your thinking first in order to steer your thoughts towards the direction that you want. Be the observer of your thinking and check its realistic impact on your life. Ask yourself, “Are these thoughts helping me to reach my destination”? “Are these thoughts rational”?
If the answer is no, then release these thoughts because there is no reason to hold on to thoughts which hold you back from living your life to the fullest. Let go, and reframe your thoughts.
Mindfulness practice is very essential to reframe your thinking. You can change your thinking only when you are aware of what you think and feel. So make mindfulness practice a part. Focus on what’s happening now.
Study successful people. Dont only study them, but try to apply the principles which helped them to reach their goals. Take one step at a time.
So all the best on the journey. Master the art of effective thinking and let me know your progress! Thanks for being here, take care. Namaste.
