WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

Whatever be your action in life, you're actively creating a future. Did I just say that? Oh, yes, I said it. Your action, be it good or bad, conscious or unconscious, you are progressively creating a future. What this implies is that, all your action in life counts. The fascinating aspect of all you do is that, there's always a result called FUTURE. This can also be referred to as the cause and effect of life.

History and science have proven that, your thought determines your actions. The way you think determines the way you respond to things happening around you. Those responses determine your emotions. Your emotions determine your actions, and your actions determine your results. The future is in fact, the result of your daily thoughts. The pathway to your future is fashioned by what you think and how you respond to what you think.
So what are you thinking?

A man named Napoleon Hill once said, WHATEVER the mind of a man can conceive and believe it can achieve”. This is one of Hill’s hallmark expressions. If you are sensitive enough, you will understand that Hill was talking about ANYTHING imaginable (not selected things) that the mind conceives and believe is attainable. This is tantamount to the famously well-known “garbage in garbage out” principle of a functioning computer system. The mind operates on information of thoughts fed into it. Whatever information thought that goes in informs you and forms you. What goes in makes an immense difference. It is now left for you to choose what you permit in.

Man is a product of thought. You cannot rise above the level of your thinking. What you think, you manifest and become. It has been said that, you attract thoughts, people, and experiences which are congruent with how you think and feel about yourself. If you want good health, perfect job, the right life partner, wealth, success, you must develop a self image that is compatible with these very thoughts, namely good health, perfect job, right life partner, wealth and success. Herbert Harris was not wrong when he said that, “your thought is the foundation of your life experiences. These experiences begin with your self- image, the thoughts you have about yourself”.

I want you to begin to see yourself as a bullet in a gun, the trigger as your actions and the hand that pulls the trigger as your thought. For the bullet to actualize any purpose, it requires a pull on the trigger which is the thought that generates the action that sends the bullet out on a mission. Whatever be your thought, there’s always an outcome. This outcome depends on what your thought is. It may either be positive or negative. So I ask again, what are you thinking?

From my experiences of life, I have come to understand that greatness is attracted to the man who thinks positive. You cannot be thinking negative and expect positive things to happen to you. It doesn’t work like that. The Holy book made us to understand that, as a man thinks, so is he (Proverbs 23:7). It pays to be positively minded.

Lastly, there is no better time than now, to flee from the cocoon of your comfort zone and ignite the unusual greatness in you. If you must witness a great future, you must be positively & actively involved in creating such a future. Guide you thoughts with all diligence for out of it spring forth the experiences of life.
