How are you developing your thoughts? Are you reading good books? Are you listening to powerful and uplifting audio programs? Are you talking to those who can show you a better and brighter future? Or, are you succumbing to what society thinks of you? Make your own mark on society, don’t let it mark you.
Your thoughts control your destiny. Your thoughts control more than you could possibly imagine. If you think positively, people notice. The opposite is also true. People notice if you are having a tough time. Even if you don’t say anything, people can look at you and tell. Many times people can see your thoughts by just looking at you. Are your thoughts helping you get to where you want, or are they hindering you? Our thoughts control our future.
Frank Outlaw wisely said, “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” It doesn’t happen overnight, but your most dominating thoughts will control your destiny. Realizing this, what is the outlook for your future? Bright or bleak? Are your thoughts guiding you towards where you want to be, or are they holding you back?
I hope you pay close attention to your thoughts. I hope you realize that your thoughts affect more areas of your life than anything else. Our thoughts are one of the few things in this world that we can continually control. We can’t control other people, but we can control our thoughts towards others. It was Eleanor Roosevelt who said, “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Where have your thoughts taken you? Much more importantly: Where will your thoughts take you? Your past thoughts have created your present; your present thoughts will create your future. Create the future of your dreams by thinking great thoughts today!
