When we posted the content below on our QBQ! Facebook page, it generated a huge response, not to mention an intense reaction. So, I decided to send it to you (and post it on QBQ.com) so that you can comment.
Based on the reality that we are what we think about most often—and how we think drives everything we do and become—we created this list of two types of thoughts.
Here we go …
Immature or Child-like Thinking
Pay my bills!
Take care of me!
Do not offend me!
Everything is about me!
Mature or Adult-like Thinking
I must earn.
It’s about others.
Challenge my views.
I will buy my own stuff.
Nobody owes me anything.
I’m accountable for my success.
3 Common Reactions
When people read the material above, they quickly go to one of three places:
- Others: They picture people they know who really need this content, so they don’t ever apply the ideas in their own life.
- Politics: They view this message as a political statement, which makes them angry and prevents them from using this material.
- Accountability: They thoughtfully consider how this content applies to them and, looking into the mirror, strive to change themselves.
Hmm … I wonder which of these three responses would be the healthiest? Hmm … still pondering … 🙂
Curious, where did your mind go and how will you use this material? Comment away!
