Today’s podcast starts with ideas drawn from As a Man Thinketh, a classic by James Allen, and one of the early ones about thinking that helped shift and shape my thinking . . . and it's about none other than the power of our thoughts.
Two key ideas are addressed in this podcast. The first – you have to be really mindful of what you are thinking – think harsh self-critical thoughts, then you just get better at the effects of those thoughts. Think positive loving, affirming thoughts – then you get better at those. The second is the importance of having something to pursue in life . . . having a sense of purpose. It’s what gives your life a sense of meaning and the experience of vitality.
