To the average person ‘Advanced Thinking’ seems an obscure and ‘far out’ concept that has little or no relevance to every day everyday life. Life is far too busy to spend time thinking; so they don’t And that’s why the average person stays the average person.
They have a fairly average life; their average income brings enough to pay the bills, maybe a holiday or two, nights out with the boys or girls and a reasonable wardrobe of clothes. Aspirations? Well, not any more. They are content to plod along with what they have, felling lucky that they have a job. But there is so much more.
When we were kids, we had so many dreams of what we wanted. We used to play them out at every opportunity. They may have changed a little as we grew older but we still lived them during the day and went to sleep thinking about them.
Then one day, someone you respected, a parent, teacher or even a friend told you were being childish and silly; that you needed to grow up and get a grip on your life; all you needed was to do well at school, get good grades and get into university and afterwards, the world will be your oyster.
Well is it? Are you currently doing what you love? Are you so passionate about your work that you jump out of bed every morning, eager to joining the ever-increasing procession of traffic and commuting to get to your place of work? Do you have a fantastic relationship with your soul mate and have a great circle of friends that inspire you? Or do you still face daily grind? Still face the Sunday nights that you dread more each week because you know the weekend is at an end? Does it seem like a long drudge until the next holiday, when you can finally crawl into the daylight?
For most people, unfortunately it is the latter and it is not your fault. You have likely been told many times that you were not good enough for this, or that you did not possess the skills for this, or you were not creative or even more deadly, that you were average.
The education system was not much help either. To get good grades, you wen through a process of being stuffed with facts so that, at the appropriate time, you could squeeze them back out like toothpaste from a tube.
If you had the same type of education that I had, you were not taught to think constructively, not shown how to creatively create your life with your mind or especially how to override those limiting beliefs.
If you did begin to show any glimmer of creative thought, you may well have been told to stop daydreaming and get on with your work or you’ll never make the grade; whatever that actually means.
People who live a truly successful life, a life full of love, joy, happiness and daily fulfillment have a mind-set and belief system that is radically different to the rest of the population.
They have learned the techniques that help them challenge their thinking. They often employ a coach who helps them to break down their limiting beliefs. They have made changes to their daily lives that brings the freedom they seek.They have become advanced thinkers.It isn’t complicated. It isn’t difficult to learn. It isn’t even difficult to apply. It isn’t even ‘advanced’, it’s simply learning how to think creatively not habitually.
Do not confuse mental activity with thinking. The vast majority of people have a psychology of habit, regurgitating the same thought processes cultivated by the ‘follow the herd’ mentality. Their achievements show it.
Albert Einstein said ‘Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think’.
Advanced thinking is about learning to adopt a very different psychology from how most people think so you can enjoy the kind of success that only the top 5% of people enjoy.
Your ability to influence your state of mind, to chose and influence how you think and feel so that you respond rather than react into your daily lives is the most important skill you’ll master to live a successful life.
Advanced thinking combines the dramatic breakthroughs of recent years in how our minds work with the success strategies of the world’s top achievers.
