Show Host Dean Renfro: Well here at freedom camp, we find that as we go around and talk, and we find that people are very interested in this concept called thinking that's right thinking, because they've learned as they come over fear mountain to freedom camp, that there was a lot of stinking thinking that they didn't know. They had. One of the things that you hear the veterans at the fires talk about the end of the day is their day of what they thought of something today. Because you see you notice every once in a while that they slip off into the quiet and they go to their thinking place and is there in their thinking place that they, that they have this moment where they think about something, they can solve a solution. They can create a person. They need to meet a place. They need to go a book. They need to read a podcast. They need to hear, they go to their thinking place, their, their thinking place. They find that they can begin to open up their thoughts, that fleeting moment of a thought that they had in the middle of the night. They begin to think about that a little further,
That okay, Seeing that they saw as they walked the dog this morning, caused him to think about a solution to somebody's problem, that conversation they overheard in the grocery store line caused them to think there's a way to solve that. Or here's my thoughts about what we can do about what I can do. So they find a, a place to think about their thoughts. They also find a place to shape their thoughts. That is to put some, as they say, put some meat on the bones of their thoughts that usually involves writing it down. You see many of these freedom fighters and their thinking process have these worn out old books that are held together by duct tape and bound up by strings that they open up and they start writing. If you were to get one of those books and open it up, you'd, you'd find that they were all kinds of thinking thoughts that they have things that came to them.
Some of them that were really funny and it would make you laugh and chuckle others you'd think I don't get it because I wasn't there. When it happened. Others would be moments when they were just totally overwhelmed to realize I have no clue here in this thought, I need to find some help. I need to find some direction. I need to find some information. Cause this thought is far beyond me. We have a word for that called humility. You see that in their writings, as they think in other places, you'll see where they got really excited. And, and the writing went on and on as they futurize their thoughts. They begin to look at how far can this idea go? How far can this thought expand? What are all the dots connected in this thought? Other times in some of the books, you, some of these guides you will see from them, drawings, little doodles, where they've gotten, as they thought through the, they begin to sketch out much like you would on a napkin, a thought some of their creativity rises to the surface.
In other places, you'll see where they document the steps they took and said, here's what I did to make this thought, come to fruition. I did step one, step two, step three or other places. You'll find that they just had an honest conversation with someone or with an idea or a thought. And they wrote their here's what I was really thinking. And some places you'll find that they've written out with great passion. The things that they believe in things that they said, these are the heels I've already died on their values. The, the moments that they said, this is what matters to me. If nothing else matters, this is it. And then you'll find places in their book where they go. I really got to change. I can't keep doing this. And they write out their thoughts. You see, they, they have a place to shape their thoughts then, and then you'll listen to some of them. And they'll say, well, here's what I did with that thought. And I stretched it as far as I could. I found the right people. I found the right environment. I found the right time. I found the right reason. And I got the right result with my thought.
And you'll find that some of them have little maps in their book where they said, here's where I went. And the thought in the world of reality, here's where I took this thought and implemented it in a company in a, in a, in a community, in a person's life, in a relationship. And it turned to be the positive thought that I thought it was. So, as you talk to the freedom veterans, you find that thinking is a really big deal. They encourage you to take time, to think set aside that moment every day, a couple hours every week, maybe a half a day, every month. And certainly a couple of days a year to just think and record your thoughts so that you can be one of those people who move yourself towards success and be free from fear on the other side.
