Keep a journal.
“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he”
You are literally what you think. Your character being a complete sum of your thoughts. Just as plants cannot grow without the seed, actions cannot have been taken without the thought. Through this is the realisation that you hold the key to every situation, and just as gold and diamonds are discovered through much searching and mining, you can discover your own truths and character by digging deep into yourself.
- Keep a journal, and take a few minutes each hour to write down the types of thoughts you have on a consistent basis that are not serving you.
Then at a set time each day answer the following:
- What is the root cause of these thoughts?
- What do I want to resolve in my life in order to eliminate these thoughts?
- What thoughts do I want to be thinking? Write those down!
