Almost everything that happens to you, good or bad, originates with a single thought. With every thought that races through your mind, you are continually reinventing yourself and your future. In other words, the secret conversations you hold in the privacy of your own mind are shaping your destiny, little by little.
Research indicates that the average person thinks approximately fifty thousand thoughts per day. This is either good or bad news because every thought moves you either toward your God-given potential or away from it. No thoughts are neutral.
Approximately 90 percent of the thoughts you have today are repeats from yesterday and the day before. This is the primary reason why effecting permanent, positive life improvements tends to be met with such stiff resistance in most people. It may be challenging at first, but you can make the shift from random, reactive thinking to deliberate, purpose-driven thinking.
If your aim is to maximize your potential, you must first discipline yourself mentally. This is your responsibility, something for which you must immediately take ownership. In Romans 12:2, we are taught that transformation is the result of a renewed mind. The idea is that you have to retrain your thoughts and feelings if you want to experience God’s ideal for your life.
