“Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill
We become what we think
“We become what we think about most of the time” was an idea made famous by Earl Nightingale. Our mind’s dominant idea determines where and who we are right now. You may express it it many ways but it all comes down to one fact:
You are who you are right now, and where you are right now, because of the total sum of the thoughts you have had up to this point in your life.
In other words:
If you have not thought about much, you don’t have much.
If you have not consistently and relentlessly thought about how to get rich, you are not rich.
If you have consistently and relentlessly thought about how to be a good person, treat people fairly, take a vacation once a year, receive money for services offered, whatever it is you have thought about consistently, you have probably gotten it.
Why is it that who you are and everything you have in your life right now is the sum total of all of your thoughts up to this point?
James Allen popularized the phrase “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is.”
What you think about and, more importantly, believe in your gut, is what will become your everyday reality. Your predominant thoughts will manifest themselves in physical form in your life sooner or later.
Remember that thought (or lack of thought) leads to action (or inaction) which always leads to results. So whatever you have in your life, whoever you are in your character, it is the direct result of everything you have thought about up to this point.
If you don’t have what you want, you can change what you think about and then you change what you are getting.
If you like what you are already getting, you can change the way you are thinking and get even more.
You are where you are and have what you have as a result of a Universal Law. This Universal Law has applied to mankind since we first set foot on this Earth. The law is:
“Thought (or lack of thought) leads to action(or inaction) which always leads to results.”
The results you experience in your life are directly related to the thoughts you hold on a consistent basis. What other people do may slow you down, but they cannot stop you. The only thing that can stop you from achieving your goals is you.
If you think you can… you can.
You can change
You can change anytime you want. Remember that everything you see on the outside is the direct result of the thoughts going on inside.
