If you accept a belief,
You reap a thought.
If you sow a thought,
You reap an attitude.
You sow an attitude,
You reap an action.
If you sow an action,
You reap a habit.
If you sow a habit,
You reap a character.
If you sow a character,
You reap a destiny.
I don’t know who wrote the above but it is so true. You are what you think. Whatever is at the front of your mind all the time becomes the way you behave. If you tell yourself your a nasty horrible person, then you will find yourself behaving that way.
If you say, i can’t do that your won’t. Tell yourself everything always goes wrong for you and it will. You get the picture. Think miserable thoughts. You most certainly will be miserable.
The opposite works exactly the same as well. Guess what the doers, the go-getters are thinking. The happy people, the contented, the encouragers of this world.
So we have it in our hands to choose how we think. Sometimes hard I know, but you have to take every thought captive and dismiss the bad and choose to think good things.
Start telling yourself, you can, i will, i am. Think how you can help others, rather than what others may have done to you. When you feel down, put on some happy music and think of good things. There is a lot to be said for counting your blessings.
It takes about 40 days to create a habit either good or bad, so start now to create some good habits in the way you think and see how much your life will change and your blood pressure go down.
Remember you are what you think.
