Thoughts of Self Verses Thoughts of Others

Every night before you go to sleep what do you think about? Every morning when you wake up what do you think about?

If you wish to develop a clear understand about the focus of your life and gain a look into who and what you truly are, answering those questions is an ideal technique to help you acquire that understanding.

You can be whatever person you want to be. You can become whatever person you wish to become. The focus of your life is the guiding factor for what you will become.

What do you desire to become? What do you desire to be? What do you think about and when do you think about it as you develop a pathway in your becoming?

For me, every night before I go to sleep I have a mantra I ponder, “What can I do tomorrow to help someone?” Every morning when I wake up I ponder the mantra, “Who can I help today.”

Many times, the answer is small things. I’m not a rich man so I don’t have a lot of money to throw around. But, what I do have is the ability to help others, even if this is in some small way. So, each night before I go to sleep I ponder what I can do in the next day to actualize this hope. In the morning I either reinforce what I contemplated the night before or come up with a new idea. In either case, it allows me to set the course of my day(s) in a positive direction of trying, in whatever small way I can, to make the life of other people perhaps just a little bit better.

Your life can be solely focused on you. This is the case for most people. But, it doesn’t have to be. You can still be you; you can still become the best version of you while attempting to make the all and the everything of everyone just a little bit better.
