Do you think, or do your thoughts have a mind of their own? Do you lead your thinking, or does your thinking lead you? Probably a bit of both, if you are like most people.

Most of the time this works well enough, but it has its problems. If your thoughts tell you things are good or great, people will say you are deluded. If, on the other hand, your thinking is overly focused on the bad news you may find that your negative outlook casts a bit of a shadow over things.

There is an endless debate about optimism and pessimism, (optimists, they say, see possibilities and pessimists see problems). Both are valid but neither side wants to accept that the other has a point, and I’m not going there.

Whatever your natural thinking style its important to take charge of your thinking so that it does what you need it to do.
