5 Reasons Why Being Alone With Your Thoughts Can Be Good For You

Are you comfortable with spending time on your own? When was the last time you intentionally took time out to be by yourself?

Throughout history, all the great leaders and all the great teachers have disagreed on many things but one thing that they’ve all agreed upon is that our thoughts can be harnessed to bring about big changes in our lives and in the world.

In fact, one of the most successful recordings in the personal development industry is called The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale, in which the secret is we become what we think about most of the time.

The reality is most of us do not harness the power of our thoughts. One of my mentors has an interesting saying — “2% of the population thinks, 3% think they think and 95% would rather die than think.” Sustained thinking is often very challenging because most of us have not been taught how to use our thoughts effectively.
