What we think about…

“A man is what he thinks about all day long.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Change your thoughts and you can change your world. A terrible cliche, isn’t?

And yet almost every self-made man will tell you just how important thoughts are. Alongside a lot of self-proclaimed gurus.

I am neither. But I can tell you that thoughts are extemely important.

What you think you become. What you think shapes your emotions and actions.

Ultimately, everything you are and have is the reflection of what you think about.

Or how you think.

That’s the trick I guess. How to think. What to think about.

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” J.M. Barrie

What I realized recently is that we seldom live in the present. We are haunted by mistakes from the past. We are terrified about the future.

We do not realize that the past is just a story. Feedback. That’s it. The future has yet to come.

That’s our power. The here and now. Doing our best at any given time.

That’s the main ingredient for happiness, success, and all the other things that seem to ellude most people.

We are what we think. And we must be careful, for our thoughts alone create the reality that we live in.

That’s why I like to say that life is just a matter of perspective.

You can only see what you expect to see. You can only achieve goals that you set for yourself.

Simple, huh?

    This is very nice. Really sheds light on the idea of ‘self fulfilling prophecy’. When I was younger I never believed in the connection between my state of mind and my actual state, but as I’ve grown older (and hopefully wiser), this concept has become the foundation for my every day.

    The mind is a terrible thing to waste – I consider that statement as a prompt to tap into my imagination and believe in what can, and ultimately, will be.

    Thanks for spreading such insight!
