Thinking for Engagement

Posted by Herman Najoli on April 12, 2008

Our quality of thinking determines the flow of our lives. A few years ago I enjoyed reading John C. Maxwell’s book, Thinking for a Change. This book is largely about self-development but I’d like to use some of the concepts therein to outline how we can engage society better. Here’s how good thinking can enable us to live epic lives:

1. Good Thinking Creates the Foundation for Good Results

What do you want to achieve in life? The key to that will be in developing a reservoir of good thoughts that are well implemented. Your progress in life is directly proportional to the quality of your thoughts. As I set the Better Life Company in motion I had to assess the integrity of my thinking. That provided me with the confidence of knowing that I could head into action.

2. Good Thinking Increases Your Potential

Many of the thought leaders I have come to respect have been great proponents of the need to understand and pursue one’s full potential in life. Potential is simply the capacity that a person has for effectiveness in life. We can all attain our potential as we begin to elevate our thinking. Good thinking increases the level of results one can expect in life.

3. Good Thinking Produces More Good Thinking IF . . . You Make It a Habit

Nothing dominates life more than a habit. As you practice good thinking, you develop a foundation from which you can continue to harvest even better thinking. Internationally respected leadership authority, Stephen Covey, explains that we cannot face the challenges of today with the responses of yesterday. We have to continually raise our response – it takes a habit of good thinking to do that.

Good thinking sets you apart. It elevates you from ordinary living to extra-ordinary living. Embrace good thinking and you will be able to engage with society at an extra-ordinary level.
