As I read the book Cash Flow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki, I’ve discovered how powerful the mind really is.
If you’ve not read this book, please find some time to do so. It is highly recommended.
In the book Robert Kiyosaki mentioned that wealthy people don’t necessarily work as hard as those who are employed and exchanging hours for money. Rich people spend more time on their thoughts and mindset than they do working.
In order to have the freedom our heart desire, we must strengthen our minds. How we think about things and how we process certain thoughts greatly impact the way we take action. Isn’t it interesting how we don’t often guard our minds from the thoughts that will destroy us and slow us down?
Like the digestive system in our body, our mind processes the thoughts we feed it with. If those thoughts are constantly negative then we will have malnourished thoughts. If our thoughts are constantly feed with positive then we will have healthy thoughts.
If you’ve ever eaten a meal and immediately have to rush to the restroom, your first thought is that your body didn’t react well to the food and it refused it. If that happens daily then you’ll be on your way to the doctor because obviously your system isn’t performing well.
Imagine if we did that each time our mind was entertained with negativity? We would’ve been much healthier in our thoughts.
Our thoughts are what drives our actions. When we are challenged with our thinking, we cannot act accordingly. We are unable to control our actions and reactions without first controlling our thoughts.
To have the freedom we desire for our lives, we must take action. And in order to take action we must have our thoughts in the right place.
If you act foolishly or wisely, it doesn’t mean you didn’t act. Action happens either way. But for us to be on the right side of acting, we must develop the right thoughts.
The right thoughts normally leads to a series of the right actions which in turn result in having whatever we desire in life.
So the question many of us have to ask ourselves is. What do I want? And how will I get it? These are two questions that dictates our thoughts and action. We can have anything we want but without the action and thoughts, it will be difficult.
Dream big on everything you want to have in your life. But remember that your mindset will be the root of all your desires. And if it’s not right, then nothing else will be.
