The one thing I've discovered, and studying why people are successful, and why people, they struggle is that the way that they think. it affects everything. If you think about it, your thoughts create your actions, and your actions create your results. It's in exactly that order. So what most people never do is they don't really think about what they're thinking about. They think thoughts that end up becoming destructive for them in most cases, and so what I've learned how to do, and the people that I've seen that have done well, they learn how to manage the way that they think. and the better you think, the better you act, the better you act, the better results you get. It's really that simple! The way you think about yourself, the way you think about the world, the way you think about what opportunities are out there, is your beliefs create everything, so, you've got to really examine how you think. Examine how the people that you've grown up around think. Examine how the people you associate with think, because all those people they affect the way you think. You are careful about who you associate with. you're careful about the people that you surround yourself, because they do have an enormous impact on you, whether you realize it or not. you start talking like them you start acting like them, you start behaving like them. so you need to pay close attention to the people that you're around all the time because, that's what you're gonna become. It's like criminals hang around criminals, drug addicts hanging around drug addicts you know, alcoholics hang around with alcoholics. But successful people hang around with successful people. So, I think it makes sense. One of the things I've always done is made a concentrated effort to associate with the kind of people that are going in the same direction I was going. and because I wanted to, I wanted that kind of influence in my life. people that are very good at what they do and they're motivated , and they're goal-oriented. They push you. they push you in the right direction. they help you to become better than you would be if you didn't associate with those people. Managing your thoughts, is probably the single most important thing you need to learn how to do. because if you can't manage yourself, it's pretty hard to manage everything else you've got to learn how to do that first and everything starts with what you think about.
