The statement, “you become what you think about”, reminds us that our thoughts affect who we are, and it points out the connection between what we think and what we become.
This understanding is both enhanced and magnified once combined with the Law of Exposure.
The Law of Exposure tells us that our minds think about what it is most exposed too.
This performance law is fueled by the following understandings:
1. What enters your mind repeatedly, first occupies your mind, and then eventually shapes both your perception and reality.
2. Your mind will absorb and then ultimately reflect whatever it gets repeatedly exposed too.
3. The events you attend, the materials you read, the music you listen too, the images you watch, the conversations you hold, the friends you hangout with, the daydreams you entertain — all of these are right now shaping your mind, then your character, and eventually your future.
4. You expose people to your behavior everyday, and as a result you either make deposits or withdrawals into their psychological bank account.
I’d like you to consider the following the questions as it relates to the Law of Exposure;
. What am I currently exposing my mind to on a daily basis?
. What impact is that exposure having on my performance?
. What should I be exposing my mind to on a daily basis?
. What am I exposing other people to when they look at my behavior?
. What steps should I take to ensure that I am exposed to better, people, places, behaviors and results?
. What indecencies should I no longer be exposing my mind too?
Indecent exposure is the deliberate exposure by a person of a portion of his or her own body that is likely to be seen as vulgar, offensive, and contrary to accepted standards of decency.
As it relates to your personal and professional performance, indecent exposure consists of anything that pollutes your mind, body or soul, such as the following:
. Junk food
. Lack of Integrity
. Vulgar language or behavior
Far too many people are over-exposed to these behavioral indecencies which negatively impacts their results.
It amazes me to see how many people think they can live as they want and that they can avoid this law. They think they can read anything they want and it won’t affect them. They think they can watch bad images or listen to nasty music and it won’t affect them.
The Right Kind of Exposure
You must never forget that your mind thinks about what it is exposed too. So consciously give serious exposure to whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-expose yourself accordingly.
Your task for today is twofold:
Expose yourself to new ideas, to stimulating conversation, to positivity, to all that is good and virtuous about humanity,
Expose other people to your good character, sound judgment, and to your helpful nature. You must expose people to the example you want emulated in society.
