The first habit of thought was learning that your mind does what it thinks you want it to do. As I explained, the mind is always operating in this fashion; most people just aren’t aware of it. If every time you drive to the office you think, “This is going to be hell,” then your brain takes that cue and makes you feel accordingly. However, if you communicate yourself in a precise, detailed, and specific way, your mind will help you move towards your goals, rather than sabotaging them. Just as we update our software on our phones and laptops, we have to update the way our brain operates.
