“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”
Lately I have been thinking about the power of our thoughts. Sometimes when life is moving too fast, I have to go somewhere quiet and meditate. Our thoughts help shape our behaviors and attitudes and I have noticed that those who are the most successful at the things they do or just at being happier in general are the most disciplined and focused.
As I deal with the importance of focus in my own life, I am reminded of a portion of scripture in Proverbs 23:7 “For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he…” Does that mean that I can think a million dollars into existence? Not so, but there is something about the power of our thoughts that motivates us to make moves and take steps in the direction of our goals. It all starts in the mind but focus is necessary.
Picture a photographer or artist wanting to focus on the center path in a forest. While looking around is okay, eventually the focus must be fixed on that center path to gain some clarity – direction. So this is just a reminder to those of you who may need to refocus to stay on track with whatever goal you have, its okay tolook around but keep your eyes on the path you are walking on so that distractions of life won’t steal your attention and cause you to get off track.
