Are you the Thermostat or the Thermometer?
Wow this is a question I hear this morning as I was listening to my personal development videos and it made me think, Hmmmmm?
Are you the thermostat or the thermometer? What does that even mean?
Think about what each of these things do in real life. You set your thermostat where you want you home temperature to be. You set the Vision of the environment of your home by setting this thermostat.
The thermometer is what adapts and reads the temp and reacts to it based on that vision you set.Simple right?So here is my take on this and how I understand it. YOU should be the thermostat and NOT the thermometer.
Too often we stay in REACTIVE mode based on all of the things that happen around us. Too often we let our day and the negativity that we are surrounded by dictate how our day will be. Too often we allow our day to run us and NOT us running our day.So the be thermostat.
Be the one casting the VISION for your life and how you want it to be. Be the one that is taking charge of you day and running it instead of it running you. Be the one in control because it is up to YOU how you day will go and it’s a CHOICE to be the one in charge.
STAY STRONG and be the Thermostat in your life. When things are not going the way you want them to go then ask yourself, what can I DO different to change the outcome, then do just that!!
