Every action begins with a thought. Whether it is a scientific innovation, the planting of a tree or the creation of a film, the original seed is born inside somebody's mind before it is three-dimensionally manifested. The content of our mental stream determines what we end up doing with our reality. We can see it in our preferences. For instance, those who like sports will seek sports related activities, musicians will create and share music, surfers will follow great waves and so forth. We can see it in our career goals, which lead us from one step to the next in our endeavors. We can see it in our romantic interests and how we carry ourselves depending on how we perceive each other to be and feel about relationships.
We are not always conscious of what goes on with our thoughts. Many times we end up saying things we did not mean to or end up sabotaging our own efforts. This might be the case with those who wish to live in abundance yet resent those which flow in a river of money, instead of choosing to identify with the positive aspects of the affluent, their security and success. On one hand, apparent efforts are made to escalate on the financial ladder, yet on the other hand, the same person sets strong limits by focusing on lack, envy or criticism. Would it not be smarter to learn from those who have reached your desired goal instead? Maybe that time spent thinking goal destroying statements could be better used to network, achieve and appreciate.
Let's use our thoughts to our advantage. Becoming aware of the themes in our heads can help us decide whether that is the direction in which we wish to lead our lives.
Thoughts don't only become things. They are subtle actions, invisible things.
