“The mind is everything. What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” writes Buddha, reminding great leaders of the powerful influence of their thinking on their life. Their thoughts create their worldview of life and become the foundation from which their attitudes, behaviors and actions emanate.
Dr. Wayne Dyer beautifully captures this reality in seven simple words that, as he writes, “are perhaps the most important things that we can learn and master in our lives.” His seven words are: “AS YOU THINK, SO SHALL YOU BE.” Our thoughts define who we are, shape the life we live and inspire the dreams we dream and create the realities we accomplish. Our thoughts are choices… in our hands to make. May we remind ourselves daily: I AM WHAT I THINK, remembering Dyer’s gentle and caring counsel on their impact: “You become what you think about all day long, and those days eventually become your lifetime.”
Choose to make your lifetime one that is filled with great beauty, accomplishments, wisdom, caring and giving that, at end of days, you may proclaim proudly and joyfully: No regrets! I lived my life to my fullest. Enjoy your magnificent journey and be more than you ever dreamed you could be… every day, every minute, every second. Life is so very precious.
A gentle reminder: Make it one heck of a summer! It goes by so quickly.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
