forward or reverse
Our mind is similar to the transmission in a car. We can choose which way we want to go by engaging the gears. Everything you consume in the form of information is having an effect on your ability to function as a man.
It does not take any more effort to go forward than it does to go backward. It is all in the decision process. Everything! From the newspapers you read every day to the music that you choose to listen to. Whatever you put into your mind has to go someplace and do something. By repetition the information goes into your subconscious mind and becomes a working part of who you are and what you believe.
Make an effort to really sit down and analyze all of the inputs in your life. From the friends that you associate with to the magazines that you read, really think and ask yourself, “Is this person, place, or thing
helping me to become the man that I really want to be? Is this thing a positive or negative influence in my life?”
Develop the habit of asking yourself this one question especially:” Does this add value to my life?”
Be honest with yourself because we are constantly being bombarded with information every single day. You’d be surprised at what’s being poured into your mind, and if you’re not careful you’ll find yourself being influenced in ways you never really wanted to. You must decide which way you want go to.
