The thoughts you choose

In your thoughts you can go anywhere and do anything that you can imagine. No person or circumstance can prevent you from having the thoughts you wish to explore.

Even when the worst that could happen has indeed come to pass, in your thoughts you can turn it around. Even if everything seems to be working against you, you still can think of ways for it all to be working in your favor.

Your thoughts can take you back in time and forward too. Thoughts can take you to the top of the highest mountain and into the middle of the deepest forest. Your thoughts can linger contemplatively in a particular place, or travel instantly to the other side of the universe. The only limit upon your thoughts is what you choose to think.

And whatever thoughts you choose to have are the very thoughts that will direct your life. They’ll determine how you perceive whatever comes your way, and they’ll be responsible for what you do about it.

Always you are able to choose your thoughts, in every kind of situation. So choose the ones that will lead you to exactly where you want to go.
