Adventures in Thinking!

The Louisiana Association on Compulsive Gambling's Dan J. Talley Memorial Institute will present Adventures in Thinking Friday, March 9, 2012 at the Broadmoor branch of the Shreve Memorial Library.  The presentation, by yours truly, begins at 10:00 am and runs about ninety minutes.  Everyone is welcome and there is no charge.  Anyone who needs CEU's can register in advance for a small fee (email address on the flyer.)

No matter who you are, what you do, where you come from, or where you’re going, you think.  From the moment of birth you’re processing the energy fields around you.  Soon you’re able to distinguish your specific niche in the thought process.  You learn how to direct your thinking.  That never stops.  The knack is managing thinking to create a better life – right now.

Before anything is the thought.  Although self-evident, many people can become so wrapped up in their immediate environment that they’re unaware of this fundamental order.  The thought comes first.  The condition, thing, action, or situation follows the thought in time.

This workshop takes a look at some historical concepts regarding thinking and suggests a contemporary application – reducing complaining.  Now that can be exciting!
