Thinking for Success

Thoughts are very powerful. An intention held long and hard enough will eventually manifest itself physically. A negative or positive action will stir up negative or positive thoughts long afterwards.

To have a better future, you must behave better now so that the thoughts that come to mind are more likely to be positive rather than negative. After all, the cause comes before the result, and the result is exponentially more than the cause. Thoughts to cultivate include:

? A generous state of mind

? Being sensitive to how our words and actions impact those around us, taking joy in being constructive and helpful in our actions, taking joy in the success of the people around us, pursuing deep states of concentration and meditation on a regular basis, being compassionate, keeping our promises, maintaining an awareness for the larger questions in life.

? Being aware and concerned for our physical surroundings and those of employees, feeling gratitude towards others, being dependable, respecting the property and space of others, listening to what others have to say, maintaining a sense of purpose, pursuing an understanding of how things work, maintaining a recognition of the order of things, having respect for integrity.

Thoughts to avoid include:

? Anger, jealousy, dishonesty or deception, pride, living for the recognition of others, actions or talk aimed at splitting people up, useless talk, malicious talk and gossip, holding ourselves out as someone you are not, dishonesty in the people you associate with, speaking harshly to and about others, taking pleasure in the misfortunes of others, wishing misfortune on others.

? Enjoy the money you make, by keeping your minds and bodies in good health while making this money. In this regard, the key to a healthy mind is taking regular and structured breaks from the business and our other commitments to allow the true power and potential of our minds to work for us.
