We all do it, some more than others, in many different ways.
Sometimes in a combination of ways, moving from one to another, then back again.
Sometimes we have to STOP and do it, at others times we need to STOP doing it and just make it happen.
One thing we can be sure about is:
“Your life will move in the direction of your strongest thoughts”
Here are some of the ways we do it:
Big picture thinking, the ability to think beyond yourself is required in order to process ideas from a 'faith' perspective.
Focused thinking, the ability to think with clarity on issues by removing distractions and mental clutter.
Creative thinking, the ability to break out of the box and explore ideas and options in order to experience a breakthrough.
Realistic thinking, the ability to build a solid foundation on facts, to think with certainty
Strategic thinking, the ability to implement plans that give direction for today, and increase your potential for tomorrow.
Possibility thinking, the ability to unleash your enthusiasm and hope, to find solutions for even seemingly impossible situations.
Reflective thinking, the ability to revisit the past in order to think with understanding
Questioning popular thinking, the ability to reject common thinking and accomplish uncommon results.
Shared thinking, the ability to include others who can help you to think, 'over your head' and achieve greater results.
Unselfish thinking, the ability to consider others and their journey, to think of collaboration.
Bottom-line thinking, the ability to focus on results, in order to reap the full potential of your thinking.
