Keep Your Thoughts Real
If you let your mind wander too much, it can wander into some very dark places. Your thoughts can get so far away from reality that your life is impaired.
Yes, keep your mind open, let it run full throttle. But keep it on the pavement of reality.
You can literally think anything you choose to think, and those thoughts build upon one another. There is great power in your thinking, so use that power wisely.
One effective way to keep your thoughts focused where you want them to be focused is to write them down. That forces you to think about your thoughts rather than letting them build into obsessions.
Another useful tactic is to seek the feedback of others. If you have trouble explaining what you’re thinking, perhaps those thoughts are getting outside the bounds of reality.
Your thoughts have great power and influence over your life. Let them soar to the highest heights while also keeping them real.
