News & Opinion: Asset Based Thinking

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:15 PM – Filed under: Personal Development & Human Behavior

Jack reviewed Change The Way You See Everything in February. The basis for the book is the idea of Asset-Based Thinking. I think of it as another version of Positive Mental Attitude and the power that can have over your life. Here was the passage that struck me as I was looking through it:
"Remember: Everything that happens in your day is an exchange between the external and your internal world. Think of it as raw material replenishing itself everyday. Every situation, every encounter, every person (including you) possesses valuable assets--they are always there in some form and magnitude."

I like this thought. I started to think about technology. The power of personalization is becoming stronger and more realized every day. I think it gives you a lot more power to choose the messages you want (or need) to hear.
