“You are what you think” I have been reading and hearing about this all my life, ok, maybe not all my life but many times 😉 I have read about it countless on The Secret a book by Rhonda Byrnes. If you haven’t read it or watched the movie then please do.
I have come to believe that this is some kind of a universal law. I have become a believer and a follower of this.
I believe that people create their own realities every single day in their lives. Everything that is happening in our lives is the products of our own thoughts and actions.
You are probably wondering how I happened to believe this, yeah I wondered about this myself many times. But one day I had to sit down and really reflect on my thoughts. I started asking myself; what is it that I thought about many times in the past few years? What is it that I wanted so much to happen in my life?
You guessed it, I wanted everything that I am today, yap everything. Okay, still working on many of them but getting there. I know it can be hard to believe sometimes but that is a reality. I wanted so much to be a blogger, I wanted so much to be a writer and I still want much more.
Our realities are created by our own minds, either you believe it or not. The bible itself says “as a man thinketh so he becomes” you become what you think. Every thought that comes to your mind and dwells in there for a long time, accompanied by your faith and your belief that’s how your reality is being created.
Get this, how many times you tell yourself you are going to fail at something, you think about it so much that you believe it and it turns out you fail and you complain about how much you know you are going to fail in the first place? Yes, you created that failure yourself, in your mind. So you shouldn’t be complaining, you should be thanking yourself for inviting failure.
This is true to people who succeed in life. These people are no different from you. The only difference is that they think different thought from yours. These people think success, believe success and their thoughts become their realities.
Then if this is how things go in the universe why are we creating our own misery every single day and we keep complaining why everything that we don’t want to keep happening to us? Well, you know the answer to that, we keep thinking about things that we don’t want, we complain about things we don’t want, we believe in them and manifest in our lives.
Our minds are the workshop of everything, our minds are the engineers of our lives, and either we want or not! This is one of the powerful gifts we have been given by the creator of the heavens and earth. If we work toward mastering even 10% of our minds, then our lives will be a different story of its own.
What if we change how we think even for a second, what if we change what we believe and see what miracles can happen in our lives. We create who we are and what we are through our minds. Let us learn to control them and we will control everything about our lives.
You don’t have to agree with me, but why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose anyways. Just try and be positive for an hour and see how different your life can be. Then from there, you can decide if being positive, changing how you think is something worth doing, then go ahead and do it and if not, by all means, be my guest.
Until next time,
