At Think New Concepts, there are three pillars:

  1. Think New

  2. Professional Productivity

  3. Motivation

These core values are what drive you to shift your perceptions and work towards the life you dream of. So, what do these pillars stand for, and how can you incorporate them into your daily life?   

Think New

“It’s all in your head, but so’s everything.”

This is a big truth of life. Each day, we’re constantly bombarded with our own thoughts. That can be good and bad. It’s amazing that we can think. Our thoughts control our behavior. So, it only makes sense that if you want to change your actions, you need to adjust your way of thinking. This can sound like an impossible task. After all, how can you change the way your brain works? Well, it might be easier than you think.

If you can manage your thoughts, you’ll have a better chance at achieving your goals. That’s because your thoughts affect your mood, your actions, and even your choice of words. Consider this – you wake up in the morning and think, “Today is going to be tough.” Even if good things come your way, you started the day with a negative attitude, and that will impact every interaction you have. Instead, if you woke up thinking, “Today is going to be great,” you’re able to face the world more positively. This can help you gain a better quality of life by intentionally thinking new thoughts.

Another impact of thinking new is a change to your language. Our words impact the way we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. We’ve all met a Negative Nelly who leaves you feeling drained after a simple conversation. None of us want to be that person, and by becoming aware of your thoughts and words, you can change the way you’re seen by others, and the way you see yourself.    


Professional Productivity

Humans are, by nature, an inquisitive bunch. From the moment we’re born, we’re learning about our environment, the people who surround us, and the world as a whole. And while we may become distracted from our lifelong thirst for knowledge, it’s important that we never stop learning.

By being exposed to new ideas, and observing super-successful high-achieving people, we can train ourselves to learn with a purpose – not just learning for the sake of it. This can open you up to innovative concepts, revolutionary discoveries, and can show you how our history guides our futures. By exposing yourself to new ideas and finding like-minded people, you get another huge benefit – finding the help you need when you need it.

We’re all students of the world, and by learning with a purpose, you can expand your horizons and build the future you’ve been dreaming of. 


Motivation

As most of us know, we’re our own worst enemies. We get in our own way with negative self-talk and let our fears stop us from pursuing new challenges. That’s where motivation comes in. By becoming more mindful of your mental blocks and making intentional efforts to overcome them, you can make big changes to your life.

I hear you asking, “How? I’ve been dealing with me my whole life and haven’t been able to change the way I think. What’s your secret?” Good question! It’s no secret at all, really. The first thing to realize is that motivation isn’t magic – it’s work. And you need to work hard every day, making intentional efforts to improve.

One good place to start is with your internal dialog. Many of us have a voice in our head that tells us we’re not good enough, not smart enough, and just not enough to accomplish our dreams. But this voice is wrong! When you start to hear this voice, counteract it by using positive self-talk and reaffirming the fact that, yes, you are good enough to take on any challenge! Once you start taking better care of yourself, you can develop a bias for action and start doing things now instead of leaving time for your doubts to take over. You’re in control, and by working on your internal motivation you can take on the world!
