So, how many times have you yawned so far?
I read the first paragraph a few times to make sure that it made sense and ended up yawning each time that I read it. Aren’t our minds so powerful?
As I sit here trying to piece together the things that I know that I absorbed today and wonder what things I may have unconsciously taken in, I’m left with my mouth gaping open. To think, my mind is constantly filtering the good and the bad, shaping and making me into the person that I am, is mind boggling to say the least.
Inspired by the Book of Proverbs (23:7), James Allen shared that we are what we think; we are a complete representation of our thoughts. If you want to be successful but are always thinking about what you’re going to do if you fail, you’ll end up being a failure. If you want to be wealthy, but are constantly thinking about the debt that’s weighing you down, you’ll always be in debt. You are the architect of your life.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

Since we all have the ability to control our thoughts, we each then have the ability to determine the course we desire to take in life. We know that if we want new results that we’re going to have to change our programming so that we create and do new things.
Taking charge of your thinking begins with learning how you think. How you think is about understanding the things that you feed your mind. It’s like eating, if you constantly feed your body with bad fats, sugars and artificial ingredients that I can’t spell or pronounce your body will hate you for it after too much abuse. However, if you feed your body with the right nutrients and natural foods, you’ll feel better for it.
We are definitely a product of our thoughts. The more that you reflect and focus on this true concept, hopefully you will become more determined to make sure that you’re feeding your mind with the right foods.
