Big Book: page 86 wrote:On awakening let us think about the twenty-four ahead. We consider ourplans for the day. Before begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.

Our thought-life will be placed on a much higher plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives.
