How To Have More Control Over Your Thoughts

#940: We have feelings and emotions we can’t control. We might be able to control our reactions and responses, but our thoughts...they often run amuck. In this episode I pulled out a well known quote from Napoleon Hill, which reads, “You have absolute control over just one thing, your thoughts. This divine gift is the sole means by which you may control your destiny. If you fail to control your mind, you will control nothing else.” But Tom Ziglar and I take the quote to task. Having absolute control over your thoughts is not...something most of us feel we have. Whether it’s even possible is highly debatable. It is however, something we can grow towards, every day. I asked some of my members in my community, which you can find at, their thoughts. Tom and I talk through it, and the point is to have compassion for the reality we do not, have absolute control over our thoughts, but there are methods we can be training in to have more and more every day, and doing so is possibly the most powerful asset of our lives.
