Everyone says it differently, but the message is the same.
“You are what you think about all day long.”
“Your life is what your thoughts make of it.”
“As you think, so shall you be.”
What is a thought? Scientifically speaking, it is nothing more than a random electrical impulse in the brain. If you are relaxing, not focusing on any particular thoughts, your brain continues to fire off those random impulses which, in turn, are triggering random, unfocused thoughts – like the itch on your arm, how hummingbirds fly, or your Aunt Ellen’s new car.
What’s interesting is that everything in sight of you right now is the result of someone’s focused thoughts.
The computer screen, the window nearby, and the chair in which you are sitting came into existence as the result of a single focused thought.
Everything tangible in our world today was created by an action, preceded by someone’s thought—from a straight pin to a Pentium processor, from a blight-free American chestnut tree to your garage-door opener.
The amazing thing about thoughts is that you have complete control over them.
They don’t have to be life-changing or global in scope to make your personal world better. They need only be focused.
What thoughts will you be having today?
