We have all heard the phrase, “You are what you eat”. But have you ever considered that, “You become what you Think About”!
If you allow your mind to be dominated by trivial matters, your achievements are likely to be unimportant. Discipline yourself to think about important things. Keep up with what’s new in your field and with what’s going on in the world. Make a list of good ideas that you can use anytime you are searching for a creative solution to a problem.
If it’s true that you become what you think about most, it follows that the quantity and quality of success you achieve in your life will be in direct proportion to the size of your thoughts.
It is impossible to be greater than the thoughts that dominate our mind. Remember, small minds think about things; great minds think about ideas.
We human beings are a complex lot. Many religious writings and great literary works are based upon the constant struggle between good and evil that goes on inside every one of us. This struggle is as old as mankind itself. Yet, while we recognize our own inner struggles, we are often quick to condemn others.
Psychologists tell us that there is no such thing as a bad person; there are only bad behaviors. Try to make it a point to look for the good in yourself — and in others. Nurture the good character traits and work on the ones that may need improvement….you will be amazed how this process germinates. Like plants in a garden, the character traits that grow strong and productive will be those that are fed, watered, and weeded regularly.
No one is so good that he has no bad in him, and no one is so bad that he has no good in him.
