Deliberate thought is a human gift – a competitive advantage of some sorts. Our thoughts control our actions. Though mystical powers are not likely present in our thoughts; the power of our individual thoughts impacts our behavior and the behavior of others around us.
Our vision of the future can be communicated unconsciously and non-verbally creating a shared vision. Carl Jung theorized about a collective unconscious where people in close vicinity pick-up each other’s thoughts without speaking.
Positive thinking stems from the Protestant reformation and the concept was independently published beginning in 1889 by Prentice Mulford with his book titled “Thoughts are Things”.
The repetition of the positive thinking concept provides evidence that there is value in this process of thinking. Anyway, who would want to think negatively all of the time?
Most of the world we live in is of human construct. Our reality is more imaginatively structural than it is physical. Concepts, laws, hierarchies, obedience, etc. are all shared vision which is how our thoughts play a role in our society. Society, culture, and social economics are virtually a shared mental construct.
An example of a physical construct is jail and is meant to punish by not allowing mental abilities to thrive.
Our thoughts are our gifts to our families, friends, cultures, work, societies, and reverberates in a continued shared pattern throughout the world.
Our thoughts are like viruses and when shared with a select majority, a tipping point is created that allows those thoughts to manifest social belief and become viral.
We are creating reality as we live and we are the only species that can do that.
Our lives are constructed through our thoughts.
Daily schedules are created through thought.
Learning is based on thought.
Thought is the engine of innovation.
Thought is the generator of decisions.
Thought is the competitive advantage that we all share.
The power of thought is often underestimated,
and when you can get an entire group to buy-in to the same ideology the power can be exponential.

Leadership coaching is dedicated to enhancing leadership skills and abilities by enhancing the leader within. Targeting and understanding the underlying processes that dictate behavior creates a necessary awareness that enables superior leadership. All leadership is not equal and the correct developmental process separates the good from the great. Our leadership coaching processes develop great leaders.
This blog is a free service offered to touch the lives of developing leaders. We believe that everyone is capable of being a leader and that leadership begins with leading the self. The material we offer goes above and beyond the generic leadership content found on other leadership sites such as mission, vision, and tactics of leadership. Rather, we expand on these processes and include the real human aspect and psychological foundation of making a connection that by association inspires followers to go above and beyond what is required. Additionally, these writings are geared to elicit behaviors that make leaders more follower-friendly, and attempt by diffusion, to refine the skills needed to lead successfully.
