Yes, we do both, but what is the percentage? How much of your thinking turns into acting and how helpful is that for you? Do you need to think more before you act or you need to act more based on your thinking? Both influence your world, but in two different ways.
It’s a tough world out there and only one of the two aspects has a solid influence over the course of your life and that thing is acting. However, the way you behave is based on the way you think, so actually thinking comes first. The only problem is that we often want to do things and that idea remains only an idea.
In the beginning, I mentioned the fact that these two aspects have an influence over your world in two different ways. The first one is that the way you think defines the world you’re living in. It might sound stupid, but it’s real, otherwise two people won’t be able to feel different in the same situation and our world proved that it’s possible. What you might find the best, someone else might think it’s the worst. The thing is that people act (or not) based on that belief.
Our thinking creates the situation and our acting gets shit done. If your thinking cannot create or acknowledge the potential of a situation, your acting will be on the same page with your thinking. Massive action is the game-changer of this world, but it cannot be done without the proper thinking because we tend to be in our own way so we are one of our biggest obstacles.
Of course, we can act and move forward even though our thinking is not on the same page, but this would require for us to admit our brain can be wrong and there is a different perspective available even though we might not be able to see it because of our core beliefs.
Is your acting always on the same page as your thinking?
