So as man thinketh
So as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. This is a piece of scripture from Proverbs 23, verse 7 that is thought provoking. You are and will become exactly what you think you are.
I believe it is even deeper than that. Yes, you are a sum of your thoughts but those thoughts transform themselves into what you say about yourself.
Then the words morph into what you actually decide to do. The actions change into your daily habits. Habits over time highlight what your character is and then all of that impacts what the future you becomes.
The thought is just a seed that is watered by what you decide to do with that thought every single day. That’s why what you focus on is so important because the focus of your mind will expand in your world. Meaning what you think about becomes bigger.
It’s amazing how many people I meet that have interesting goals and when I ask what are doing about it I get a blank stare. The goal is not enough. Water it, all the time, with every thing you do.
Destiny is the outcome of the collision between goals and continual action.
