|Your thoughts determine your course|
The Holy Bible accentuates the importance of how one thinks. In Proverbs 23:7 it states that for as he thinketh, so is he. In Philippians 4:8 it recommends subjects to think upon.
Verse Eight states "Finally, brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Dr. Andrea Gardner, Ph.D. stated that we must first become the master of our thoughts because emotion always follows thought. In our every thought there is the seed of our greater abundance. One of the greatest gifts given to us was to choose the thoughts that we put in our minds.
Brian Tracy adds more support for the scripture by stating that by thought or action that you repeat over and over will eventually become a habit. Norman Vincent Peale wrote that whatever you have taken into your mind can grow there. John Alston said not to dwell on the past. Use it to illustrate a point then leave it behind. Dr. Wayne Dyer tells us that we are responsible for the thoughts that we have in our head. Mary Lou Retten was quoted as saying love what you do. Optimism is a happiness magnet. Good things and good people will be drawn to you.
