There are times when no matter how positive we think, things don't seem to change for us. Then we can make a decision to change ourselves and let our thoughts change accordingly. We may not think our way into good behavior, but perhaps we can behave our way into good thinking. Some situations call for action, not just thought. In the book In Search of Excellence, Thomas Peters and Robert Waterman characterized top American corporations with the motto "Ready, Fire, Aim." In dealing with a habit or a compulsive behavior, we just need to make a decision to change; the decision itself has motive power that propels us forward and breaks through the crust of our inertia. When thinking doesn't push us into our breakthrough, acting will. Buddha said, "Work out your salvation with diligence." He didn't say, "Think out your salvation." So let's decide right now to act in the way that we want to become.
