We are not limited to thinking in only one way. We have the freedom to choose from an infinite number of potential thoughts.

Because our thinking is not fixed, it can constantly be improved when we make the commitment to do so.

Remember, each moment is a new beginning.

Your future is not defined by your past. Your thoughts can change, and consequently, your future life can become totally different.

Watch out. It is easy to get consumed with the obstacles and forget about the goals. It is so easy to entertain hostile, turbulent thoughts about the future and miss the gift of the present.

But when you actively practice the 4:8 Principle, you will spotlight the positive aspects of your past, present, and future. This is a much better way to work and live.

“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.”

—Philippians 4:8 (MSG)
