The Portrait of a Good Thinker
The process of becoming a good thinker is not automatically, it takes time to invest in your new thinking.
You need to expose yourself to good inputs, reading books, listening to tapes, spend time with good thinkers. You need to be focus on the positive, on the good things, this allows your emotions to create good thoughts.
Sometimes when you feel so overwhelmed with all kind of ideas, information, questions, about the decisions that you need to take, it’s necessary that you look for the right place to think. A place that will grant you the serenity for you to focus on the positive. You might say that it sound easy, but sometimes when you need the most to be positive, negative thoughts does cross your mind and might derail you from taking the right decision.
All great entrepreneurs when they have to take very important decision for their business, they look for a place that allows them to concentrate, they dedicate a private or intimate time for their thinking. They isolate from the world, draw away from any distractions.
You can do this as well, you can choose this to be either in your office, in a hotel room when traveling, in the backyard or garage of your house or when you take the time to go biking. Any place that you feel that helps you focus better when you have to take an important decision, that is your ‘thinking place’.
Wherever place you choose as your ‘thinking place’, make sure that you really connect with yourself and strive to always have positive thoughts.
