What Do You Think About?

December 14, 2012

If it’s true that

“You become what you think, even if you don’t think so.” – Dr. Morris Mandel

and it is.  Then think about what you think about.  For example:

1. Are your thoughts more about what you don’t have, or what you do have?

“It is vital that people “count their blessings”: to appreciate what they possess without having to undergo its actual loss.” — Abraham Maslow

2. Are your thoughts more about where you have been, or where you are and want/need to go?

“Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.” – Emma Phillips

3.  Are your thoughts more about who might have hurt you, or who loves you?

“He who angers you conquers you.” – Elizabeth Kenny

4.Are your thoughts more about how you have been hurt, or how you can help someone else heal?

 “How can you expect a man who’s warm to understand one who’s cold?” – Alexander Solzhenitsyn

5. Are your thoughts more about what you are getting, or what you can be giving?

“We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

6. Are your thoughts more about errors/failures you have made, or what you learned from them and how to put that into action?

“Experience is the best teacher, and the worst experiences teach the best lessons.”Unknown

 After you finish thinking about what you think about, think about what you mostly talk about.

What we think or talk about is where our focus is and it’s energy takes us.  It sets the direction of where you are going, or not going at all.  Are you going in the direction you want to?  Are you “climbing your mountain?”  Something to think about!
