Here we are at the end of the year and I am reminded of a quote by Abraham Lincoln in which he said "that no man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar." http://members.aol.com/RVSNorton/Lincoln23.html
The only reason I am thinking of this is because people often use this time of year to reflect back on the previous year and then to look forward to the coming year, possibly with the hope that the coming year will be better.
Consistently Adjust and Adapt
The necessity in building upon these conditions are to create paths of consistent and competent decision making, improving focus perceptually and establishing the ability to adjust and adapt.
Perception is the process of acquiring, interpreting, selecting, and organizing sensory information. Your mind state has to be in constant positioning to analyze situations that you will come into contact with, deciphering whether it's conditions are beneficial to your means.
Maintaining mindful progression equipped with positive thinking will determine the directions to which you follow.
There are only two sides to every coin, and there is no middle ground, so if your thoughts are not positive, then your direction can only be stagnate or negative.
POSITIVE THINKING helps promote and encourage positive VISIONS, positive ATTITUDES and positive ADVANCING. It expands your outlook and broadens your scope allowing you to become more open minded and receptive.
Positive Attitude - People who have a healthy and positive attitude generally tend to live better lives. They understand the power of perception and the strength of thoughts of mind. Through our thoughts we create the pathway to which we direct our actions.
Your person also has to create temperments to where you can accept and handle the magnitude of the circumstances your endeavors present, both progressive and/or hindering, maintaining a grounded humbleness which will provide a guarded approach to shield you from becoming overwhelmed.
Control Mind - Temperament
A temperament of control is what creates a control mind, allowing you a stance of poise and controlled reaction.
Control Your Emotions
You lose control over yourself when you do not control the emotions that your thoughts create. They then control you, driving you into directions you struggle to restrain. Controlling the emotion gives you the ability to utilize its energys placing it toward more significant circumstances energizing its action. Our feelings create energys of emotion that incite our motives and drive us toward reacting. We ultimately have the control over the reaction through the perception in which we receive the emotion. The temperances which we maintain are what we use to ignite our perception. By maintaining a controlled reaction through a poised and neutral temperament, we then gain control over the energys that are produced through the emotions that occur within us.
I hope these thoughts and suggestions find happy homes in the coming year as I myself continually strive to improve I hope that others share these sentiments and finally find themselves not simply walking from place to place but floating on their own powerful and creative egos.
Happy New Year
