Look around you. Perhaps you see a chair. This chair is real and exists in time and space. Yet before it came into being, it first existed as a thought. In fact, everything in the room existed as a thought at some point in someone’s mind. Who you are today and the reality you have created is a result of your thoughts - your thoughts about what is possible and what’s not. These thoughts are influenced by your spirituality – your purpose - who you see yourself being, and your beliefs and values.
Often our thoughts are about not measuring up, being incapable or inadequate, avoiding failure or beating ourselves up because we did not say or do the right thing. Just as thought preceded the creation of the chair, your thoughts precede the reality that you create for yourself.
The future lies ahead of you, determined by your current thoughts. These are the only thoughts over which you have any control. What thoughts will you choose for yourself that will be the cause of a different future for you?
“You become what you think about.”
– Earl Nightingale
To realize your dreams, pay attention to what is happening around you. Be curious. Recognize what happens when you begin to think differently about yourself and what you are capable of achieving.
