What You Think Determines What You Achieve

Is there a connection between what we think and what we experience or have in our lives?  Yes, thanks to the amazing power of the mind, “You are what you think.”

I first learned this concept from the Bible many years ago. Proverbs 23:7 says,”As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Brian Tracy, one of today’s top success and motivational speakers, said:

“You become what you think about, most of the time.  Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.”

The point is this: our thoughts impact our actions, whether we realize it or not.  Sadly, we don’t often think about that (pun intended!).  So when we want to make change in our lives, we try to change our actions without changing the thoughts that cause the actions.  Talk about an exercise in futility!

The good news is that we can program our minds for success. Here are a couple of articles I wrote on this topic:

Think about where you’re at in your life right now.  What thoughts, for good or bad, have led you there?  And if you want to make a change in your life, what thoughts need to change, and why?
