Thoughts are more powerful than actions. That is what yogis believe.
The thoughts that race through your head on a daily basis define your existence.
Think about it. Have you ever known someone who speaks misery? Well they have a pretty miserable life right? And what people speak is a direct representation of their thoughts.
Now, have you ever known someone who only or mostly speaks positive words? Their life seems very easy.
My critics will argue the chicken or the egg theory here; they speak misery because their life is miserable, and not the other way around.
Please contemplate these words from some of the greatest minds in history:
I think, therefore I am. -René Descartes
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world. -Buddha
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. -Proverbs 23:7
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it. -Marcus Aurelius
Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds. – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Remember, happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think. -Dale Carnegie
No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking. – Voltaire
The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking. -Albert Einstein
Change your thinking and you will change your world
I saw this online this week and I wanted to share it with you.
Think before you speak:
T – Is it the truth?
H – Is it helpful?
I – Is it inspiring?
N – Is it necessary?
K – Is it kind?
I encourage you to apply that acronym to your thoughts as well. Begin to analyze your thoughts and analyze your words.
Are your thoughts truthful, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind? If not, that might explain why there is unhappiness in your life.
Try thinking more happy thoughts and see if that does not change your outlook. I guarantee-just as Buddha, Jesus, Einstein, and a myriad of other great thinkers in the world explained-that when you change your thoughts, you will change your world.
