As Christian entrepreneurs, we know the importance of thinking positively in all situations. It helps sustain our energy for business growth and prepares us to make balanced decisions in difficult situations.
So why is it so hard to think positively all the time? The answer is going to surprise you: We believe we are thinking positively when we are instead lying to ourselves.
The difference is subtle and yet life changing. Listen in as we explore Thought Tuning™, a process developed by Shawn Sommerkamp, Executive Coach and founder of Motivationeer™ Christian Coaching.

Shawn’s Success Tips
The secret to living a powerful and effective life, full of faith and energy to succeed in Christ, is managing our thoughts. This is the essence of Romans 12:2, specifically being transformed by the renewing of our minds. The original Greek wording in this verse literally means to be completely changed by changing the way you think about things. Then we are able to discern God’s will for our lives.
When we think of our situation as bad or sad or angry or discouraged, it is impossible to understand God’s will for us. As we tune into the frequency of our own Core Values, we are changed, down to the bottom of our soul. It is inspiring to see people really grasp this totally new concept. No longer do we have to fake it by “thinking positively”. We can change our thinking based on who we are at the Core…through our Core Values.
Thought Tuning™ is the way to grasp this teaching from Romans 12:2.
Shawn’s Favorite Quote:
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. ~ Romans 12:2
