The way you think
Consider this simple equation:
Your Thinking drives your Actions. Your Actions drive your Results.
Working backwards. If you want different results, you must do different things. It’s obvious, we all know that.
What is not so obvious is that unless your thinking changes then the kinds of actions that you take will always be the same.
Let me give you an example. This is based on a passage from the book Change your Questions, Change your Life – by Marilee Adams.
Thousands of years ago human beings were nomadic and moved around following the food and water. Out of the 2, water was most critical because if there was no water then there would be no animals or plants to feed on.
Therefore, man was driven by the thinking “how can we find water?”
Our ancestors may have had different actions such as, getting water from lakes, or digging wells but those actions always led to the same results. The results were that sometimes there was water and sometimes they had to move to a different part of the country to find it.
Then the thinking changed. It evolved to become “how can I make the water come to me?” From that simple, but profound, shift in thinking the science of irrigation was born and the future of mankind was changed forever.
