Think This not That

What are Limiting Thoughts?

This week, motivational speaker, Mel Robbins talked about limiting beliefs. Too often we can get into a habit of telling ourselves negative things, and think things need to be the way they have always been. Rather than continuing to stay put in our old routines, the trick is to interrupt a negative thought with a positive one.

Filling Our Minds

Philippians 4:8 reads, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things”.

Use the THINK Acronym

When I teach students about their digital footprint, I refer to the THINK acronym.  Before posting something online, students are advised to consider if it is

True, helpful, important, necessary and kind.

Since our goal is to do as Paul suggests, and think noble and good things, running the things we tell ourselves alongside the THINK acronym will help us know if we need to interrupt limited thinking with new positive thoughts.
