“Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.”
A quote, I believe, was made by Ralph Waldo Emerson. So many have called it their own but it does not matter.
The idea is that everything starts with our thoughts. What we think influences everything and is determined by our world view or perception of how we see things. If we are negative and always seeing the worst, it will be hard to ever succeed in life. If we blame other people for why we have not succeeded, victim mentality, will never get you where you want to go.
The key is to control what influences you and that begins with the people you associate with and the books you read, along with all other forms of input on social media etc. If you surround yourself with people that are fighting to succeed and taking the necessary action and are seeing progress, you will become just like them. If you read great personal development books versus the newspaper, you will experience progress.
It is all about making small, daily decisions that can help you get closer to your goals, not further away. You see, the hardest part is making the decision to succeed and control this stuff. From there, it’s a matter of managing that decision, daily, with the right inputs and the right corresponding thoughts.
How are you doing in your thought life? This might be a great time to take inventory of your thoughts and see if they are helping you get closer to your goals or further away.
Who we are in life is based on the books we read and the people we associate with.
If we associate with people who are trouble makers, who steal from others and do questionable legal things, we risk becoming like them. If we associate with chronic complainers and pessimists, we risk becoming like them.
If we associate with people who strive to be better at the jobs, their businesses, as a mom, as a dad, a brother, a sister, a son, a daughter, we risk their positive influence impacts us. I’d say that is a good thing.
We must take inventory of those people in our lives that are toxic. People that don’t make us feel good about ourselves. People that tell you “you will never accomplish that” or “you are not good at that.” People that are living in the past and are not future focused. We must learn to put a bouncer at the door of our brains and protect the input as well as those relationships we allow into our lives.
Life is too short to get off course. Be proactive, be aware of those in your circles and break free of those that hold you back!

In a world where people are competing with the Jones’s, attempting to find fulfillment in a career, a sport, even a relationship, there is always something missing.
Whether you believe it or not, God loves you & thinks you are amazing as you are, faults & all. He is not a cosmic killjoy trying to mess up your plans.
I’ve gone years of my life doing things my way & was always left short of being happy & fulfilled. No job, no money, no accomplishment, no alcohol ever brought true fulfillment.
Doing life God’s way is all about letting go of the reigns and realizing that, with Him, life is still hard but you can do more, become more, impact more because His ways are way easier & more effective than our own.
It’s where, I believe, true living begins.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
The question is do YOU have the right perspective? Or, are you cynical? Are you negative? Perhaps judgmental or always looking at the wrong side of the coin?
Your life will be the sum of your thoughts, your attitude, your choices & your actions.
The best part: YOU get to choose!
Too many people are always focused on the negative. The challenge, the obstacle, the hard work they have to do to reach their goal. What they should be doing is focusing on their goal & engage as many senses as possible to feel, see, taste, smell what it will feel like when they reach their goal.
Why focus on the wrong stuff when it only brings more negativity and lack of success in your life? With the news being largely negative and social media being a facade where people only show you what is going on great with their lives, people are constantly chasing an illusion.
Your mindset, your perspective and how you see you world will determine your reality.
CHOOSE to focus on the positive. CHOOSE to focus on the good stuff. Your life, your happiness and your fulfillment hang in the balance!
