Why I always say, “You become what you think”?

Why I always say, “You become what you think”?

“You become what you think”. Our mind is so powerful, but still most of us take it for granted. We believe we aren’t control of what we think as our thoughts keep wandering here and there all day long. Know why I, and you should believe that you become what you think about.

Let me share few lines with you which I recently read from a book:

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got the think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!

By Napoleon Hill from his book “Think and Grow Rich”

Your mind is like a magnet.
It’s all in your mind. Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life.

If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted.
If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten.
If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.

How to unleash the power of your mind?

Human beings are examined as creatures of habit. We often tend to follow others, our parents, our friends, our neighbourhoods, surrounding people for good or for bad. But we don’t have to do it all the time. We all have a mind of our own, capable of imagining the life we want it to be. Start imagining and believing the way you want your life to be. You don’t have to tell it to anybody. Just believe in you, have faith and confidence in what you do.

Once I heard a motivational speaker saying, “Keep your eyes on the prize.” And then there’s a wonderful saying: “Be careful what you wish for.” But I would replace these with, “Where you keep your eyes pointed is where you’re going to get.”

We might not be able to control the weather or the moods of all the things around us. But, we most certainly can control our attitude towards all such events. We all have the power to determine what we will think about in any given moment. This ability is part of what makes us humans.

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem”

Captain Jack Sparrow

We can say either yes or no to the various choices we encounter in our daily life. Sometimes it’s good to say no. But we have to be open to new possibilities, new changes in life. Don’t be afraid to try new things, don’t let the fear of failure stop you from trying. You may fail at the beginning but don’t forget that failures are the footsteps towards success.

To savour the good one must know the bad. But I suggest that you should stop judging events as either positive or negative. Rather, simply experience them, celebrate them and learn from them. Every events offers you some lessons. These little lessons fuel your inner and outer growth. Just think about it with your own life. Most people have grown the most from their most challenging experiences. And if you meet with an outcome you did not expect and feel a little disappointed, remember that the laws of nature always ensure that when one door closes another opens.

There are three levels of manifestation in your life:

  1. Thoughts
  2. Words
  3. Action

Whatever you think consistently will become your reality. For example “I don’t have money” or “I am ugly.” If you think that often enough, you will experience exactly that – the feeling of having no money or every time looking yourself in a mirror and thinking you are ugly. Eventually, you start believing in such thoughts and think that’s true. This leads to fear and increases mental pressure.

The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master. If you have become a negative thinker, this is because you have not cared for your mind and taken time to train it to focus on the good. Winston Churchill said that “the price of greatness is, responsibility over each of your thoughts”. Then you will install the vibrant mindset you are looking for. Remember, the mind truly is like any other muscle in your body. Use it or lose it.

That’s why it’s important to create a habit of positive thinking. Positive thoughts alone will not lead you to achieve what you want in your life. Put your thoughts into words and act accordingly. Your words are nothing without action, let your actions define you.

So, what are you waiting for? Just close your eyes and think about how you want to live your life, what you have to do to make it happen and start working for it. The best way to predict your future is to create it.

You become what you think about the most.

Best wishes!
