Have you thought about how your life is a mirror, reflecting what you think?
This has been stated in different ways:
You are what you think, you get what you project.
Your thinking, your state of mind and your actions always elicit a response in your life, continuously -all the time, everything – always.
Your power comes with your ability to take command of your thought and actions.
This is how you have influence on your life’s experience.
If you allow your mind to be a “random action machine,” you will get random results that you must then deal with.
Take notice of what you are doing and the results you are living with? Are they what you really want?
Why not take charge of your thinking and learn to direct it in ways that support your purpose, your deep inner feelings about what you should be doing with your life.
When you are noticing that there are things going on in your life that you are not so pleased with, take a look at yourself.
Ask, “what can I think and do differently that will affect what I experience?”
Your ability to think about what you want whenever you want, is the result of your self-discipline being in command over random thought.
Here is a poem by William Arthur Ward that clearly states what you can do to see specific results.
Truths For Living
William Arthur Ward
The more generous we are,
the more joyous we become.
The more cooperative we are,
the more valuable we become.
The more enthusiastic we are,
the more productive we become.
The more serving we are,
the more prosperous we become.
The more outgoing we are,
the more helpful we become.
The more curious we are,
the more creative we become.
The more patient we are,
the more understanding we become.
The more persistent we are,
the more successful we become.
Doesn’t that do something to put it in perspective?
Action – Reaction,
Input – output,
Your purposeful thought and action precede the evidence you want.
This poem is a mini self-improvement guide if you’re looking to reduce stress and anxiety, and increase your happiness, joy, and fulfillment.
Don’t go looking at the reflection, the evidence, to change without your changing.
