There is a famous proverb that goes somewhere on the lines of “what a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” It could not be truer that your thoughts reflect who you are as a person. Just look back 10 years ago to your secret dreams, hopes and desires. More often than not those inner thoughts, shared or unshared have impacted your present life in some way, shape or form.
Below is a collection of my fravourite lines on how your thoughts today, will ultimately impact tomorrows actions.
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.
– Brian Adams
Nurture your mind with great thoughts.
– Benjamin Disraeli
Entertain thoughts that give life. And when a thought or resentment, or hurt, or fear comes your way, have another thought that is more powerful — a thought that is love.
– Mary Manin Morrissey
The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.
– Florence Shinn
We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be whenever and wherever the hour stricks that calls to noble action…, No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought.
– Joshua L. Chamberlain
Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.
– Mahatma Gandhi
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts, therefore guard accordingly and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue, and reasonable nature.
– Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
