There are a lot of things that “sound great in theory.” Yet knowing the theory doesn’t always tell you how to implement the theory in real life.
Why does there so often seem to be such a big gap between theory and action?
I’ll suggest it is because to apply the theory we have to first change the way we think. Just because a concept makes sense to us intellectually doesn’t mean we have embraced the new thinking or beliefs and integrated them into our mindset.
Your thoughts, which are always based on your personal context, mental models, beliefs, etc., are the source of all of your actions. Change the way you think and you will change the way you act.
