Beware of What You Wish For…..


You Become What You Think About

….because you will get it.

Whatever we decide to have, and commit to, we will receive.

Quite scary that. Or hugely encouraging. Depends on which viewpoint you adopt.

William James, the American Philosopher, said that human beings are what they think about all day long.

So, if we think negative thoughts, or we have tiny dreams, or even tiny negative dreams, then we will get them.

If we decide that we are inadequate, and we act as counsel for our prosecution, rather than counsel for our defence, then we will convict ourselves.

And every negative thought we harbour becomes habitual.

If we cultivate weeds we will not have much of a garden. Why don’t we focus on nurturing pretty flowers instead? Much more rewarding.

We should not limit ourselves. We can have everything we want.

We live in a huge and magnanimous universe.

As Henry Ford said “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

Take a look at this Tedx Talks video where Charles Falkner  looks into this topic in more detail.
