Life Lesson #35 of my first 40 years: Everything starts with your thoughts.

Life Lesson #35:  Everything starts with your thoughts.

Throughout the history of the spoken and written word everyone has basically come to the same overall conclusion:  You become what you think about.

The long-term impact of your thoughts is critical to the results you have in life because it begins what is called the Empowerment (or Disempowerment) Circle which states:

Your Thoughts become your Language.

Your Language leads to your Action(s).

Your Action(s) done over and over again form Habits.

Your Habits create your Results.

And your Results lead back into your Thoughts.  And the Circle continues.

If you begin the Circle with negative thoughts – you develop negative language, actions, habits and results.

If you begin the Circle with positive thoughts – you develop positive language, actions, habits and results.

The critical thing is that YOU DECIDE what you Think about.  And what you Think about is influenced the most by these 3 things:

1.  People you surround yourself with.

2.  Personal Growth – the books, videos, trainings, experiences, etc.

3.  Personal Perspective – when something happens – do you focus on the problems or the possibilities?

If you do not take responsibility to fill your Thoughts with positivity and possibilities – via People/Personal Growth/Perspective, you leave yourself vulnerable to the world’s influences of negativity and pessimism that is all around us.

Ultimately it is your choice what you fill your mind  with (which creates your Thoughts) – please realize that it is one of the most critical choices you will make in your life.  Be aware, conscious and purposeful in filling your mind (Thoughts) with positivity.
