Almost every one of us has heard the expression “going the second mile”. You almost…
Have you ever listened to what is going on in your mind? What do you spend the most time thinking about? As you are drive down the road, what thoughts occupy your mind? Are they thoughts that have to do with accomplishing goals and dreams, or are they more related to people and relationships? Why do you think about those things?
It is a known fact that what we think about and talk about is what we bring about. Therefore, we should be careful about what occupies our mind because, whether we realize it or not, all of our thoughts are like seeds that, in time, will bring forth fruit.
Many years ago, I attended a seminar in which the speaker asked us to envision some of the things that we would like to see happen in our life in the future. I remember thinking, “Well, what can this hurt? Nobody can read my mind.” I thought, “I would love to speak to large audiences. I would enjoy being able to share with them the same information that has been helpful and meaningful to my life.” That exercise caused me to catch a glimpse of what would become reality in my own life one day.
Now, I am not saying that everything you think about will magically happen. But, I am saying that what occupies your mind soon will occupy your feet. What you think about, in time, will be something you will try to bring about.
Someone who constantly thinks about money will generally have better financial results than someone who never gives money a second thought. The person who always thinks about friends or family members and wants to pour time, effort, love and energy into those relationships will have strong ties with others. Show me someone whose mind turns on spiritual things daily and I will show you someone who has peace and contentment in their heart. You see, whatever we think about, talk about and long for are the seeds which begin to grow in our own heart.
So, what are you thinking about these days? I would encourage you to spend some time listening to your own thoughts in order to see what seeds are being planted. They will become the harvest which you will eventually reap.
I work to keep my mind focused on the things that I believe in and cherish the most because I realize that those thoughts will bring about the strongest results in my life. It is true for me and it is true for you as well.
Tip: What you think about and talk about, you bring about!
Have a great week! God bless you!
