Monday Mottoes – #112

thinkingI am a mind reader of sorts. It’s no mystery and certainly no occult power in my case. I simply observe an individual’s behavior. Whatever they’re dwelling upon will often take root in their life. See the outcome and it will reveal their thoughts that led to this.

That’s not to say that bad things don’t happen from time to time “out of the clear blue”. Instead, I’m referring to longstanding mindsets and ideologies. If you remember the famous story about the two shoe salesmen about a century ago who were sent to a remote island. One wired home dejectedly stating, “Returning home. Natives do not wear shoes.” The second wired home elatedly, “Natives do not wear shoes. Send more stock.”

Exact, same situation and circumstance. Two totally different perspectives and thmindsets that would definitely determine the outcome of their future. Which brings us to today’s motto:

“We become what we think about most of the time, and that’s the strangest secret.” ~Earl Nightingale

Very similar to what the Bible states, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). That would lead me to believe that if we hope to change in any area of life, we need to change our thoughts, which changes our words, which changes our behaviors.

In short form, that means that morphing into a new me comes from what I’m willing to meditate on. And that’s very empowering.

Happy Monday, everyone!
