The Power of Thought

Your thoughts become your reality. All behavior comes from the thoughts that preceded it. Every accomplishment great and small begins with a thought, a vision.

When you control your own thoughts, and focus them on a specific set of goals, then you have taken full control of your life. You are no longer a victim of circumstance, the moment you begin to visualize your own future.

No one can control your thoughts except you. No one can influence your thoughts unless you let them. Choose carefully the people who would affect your thinking. Surround yourself with positive, responsible, intelligent, open-minded thinking.

The person you are on the inside determines the person you become on the outside. Your mind, your body, and the whole world that surrounds you, are crying out for direction, waiting to be shaped and guided by your thoughts. Waiting to leverage your thoughts into manifestation.

Think about the person you want to become, because you become the person you think about.

— Ralph Marston
