Most people have no idea how out of control their thought life really is. This is a big problem, because your thoughts influence virtually every aspect of your life in some way. Here are a few suggestions to help you get your thought life in order:
Think about what you’re thinking about.
What are you listening to and why?
Who are you listening to and why?
Be willing to course-correct if your thought life gets off track.
