Key #1: Control Your Inputs

In episode 115, I talked about the 5 keys of an impactful life. Those 5 keys included:

  1. Controlling your inputs
  2. Focusing on what matters
  3. Interpersonal relationships
  4. Personal finances
  5. Fulfilling work

If you have those 5 keys downpat, you have everything you need to create an amazing life. Today, I will be diving a little deeper into key #1, controlling your inputs.


Only when you make the right changes to your thinking do other things begin to turn out right. ~John Maxwell


If better were within, better would come out. ~J.R. Rim


What both of these men are trying to say is what goes into your mind (the things you focus on and purposely think about) affect everything about your life, including the way you act.


A lot of people say you can 'think' yourself rich, but that only works if, as you think about those things, you begin to see and act on the opportunities that come your way. With the good actions come the good outcomes that you're hoping for. So, with better input comes better output.


Philippians 4:8 says, "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things."
