“Watch your thoughts for they become your words; watch your words for they become your actions; watch your actions for they become your habits; watch your habits for they become your character; watch your character for it becomes your destiny.”Mahatma Ghandi
“Watch your thoughts for they become your words; watch your words for they become your actions; watch your actions for they become your habits; watch your habits for they become your character; watch your character for it becomes your destiny.”
How often we think that our lives are made by the big events we encounter, but that is not the case. Life is made up of all the little things added together culminating into one whole. Little things like thoughts, for example, can determine your destiny. You are the sum total of the little thoughts you have been having over the last few years. According to Mahatma Gandhi, the basic building blocks of your life are your thoughts which culminate into your destiny. So have you been thinking about what you have been thinking about? Could it be that destiny is not one big event but a sum total of the little thoughts that have been running through your mind? Can we also say you can change your destiny by changing your thoughts?
We can equate your mind to a garden that you have to learn to water and tend to or simply take care of. And if your mind is a garden then your thoughts are the seeds you plant in your garden. So carefully pick the seeds you want to spring forth because by so doing you’re choosing the fruit you want to produce in your life eventually. And you just don’t end at planting good seed, but you have to take it a step further and weed out the seeds you accidentally or ignorantly planted but whose fruit you don’t want. But don’t end there either, go further by avoiding seeds that are detrimental to you.
You must be wise enough to know that when people interact with you they will eat what you have planted in your garden. Make sure people have a wonderful experience when they come to your garden to eat.
Always remember that before any action is birthed, it starts out as a thought. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a good or bad action, everything rises and falls on your thought life. The good news is thoughts can be controlled, so uproot thoughts that don’t serve you. Don’t just let toxic thoughts roam around in your mind. If you want to control your habits start with your thoughts first. So watch out for the little things that make a very big difference; your thoughts. They have the ability to make you or break you.
Consider this also, it is little things like nails that determine whether a chair will be able to hold your weight or not. It is little drops of water that can fill a bucket. It is the little foxes that spoil the vines. With that said, you need to start paying attention to your thoughts, they’re not just little harmless thoughts, it has been proven that thoughts are indeed things; perhaps because before anything is tangible it starts out as an intangible thought.
