5 Simple Steps to Managing Your Life

 


Visitors: 207

Because so much in life is out of your control is all the more reason to control those things that you can.

One thing you can absolutely control is your thinking. It's a good thing too, because the Bible tells us that “As a Man Thinketh, So is He" (Proverbs 23:7)!

Managing your life really only comes down to managing your thoughts. And, to keep things even more simple, there are really only two things you can do with your thoughts, and they are. . .

a) Create a thought of your own choosing, and. . . b) React to a certain stimulus

Knowing that, here are 5 simple steps to managing your life. . .

1. Take One Step at a Time

Whatever your goals are, no matter what, break them up. Take everything one step at a time. Keep your tasks simple to begin with because success breeds success. In no time at all, you'll look back and be amazed at your progress.

2. Try to Find the Positive

If you encounter a setback, don't think of it in negative terms. You never know what is really positive or negative until a little time has passed and you're able to look back. Just try to see the positive in the situation for the time being.

3. Know This Too Shall Pass

Everyone has a bad day now and then. You know, those days when you just don't feel yourself for whatever reason? Just accept it when those days come. Don't force yourself to be your best on those kind of days. Just know that “This too shall pass. "

4. Don't say, “I Can't"

We are all capable of far more than we think we are. Besides, how do you really know if you can do something or not until you at least try? If you try and fail, you can congratulate yourself for at least giving it a shot. Just don't beat yourself up over it if you do fail.

5. Take Action!

The more you think, analyze, and evaluate, the more likely you are to become paralyzed. Now, there is nothing wrong with planning, in fact, we ought to plan! But, there comes a time for action if something is going to get done.

Conclusion

Managing your life really only comes down to managing your thoughts. When you realize there are really only two things you can do with your thoughts, managing them seems a much simpler task.

Once you get in the habit of applying these 5 simple thinking processes, you can change your life!
