We Become What We Think About



As the saying goes ‘’We are what we think’’ and I really believe that.

George Bernard Shaw said ‘’People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are or are not’.

The people who get on in this world are the ones who get up and look for the circumstances and   chances that they want and if they can’t find them, they make them. They don’t give up or blame others. Or act like a victim, they just get on and do it.

To many of you reading this, it’s very apparent, that this is what needs to be done. Every person who discovers this, will for a while believe they are the first ones to work it out.              We become what we think about.

Of course, it also means the person who plays victim or has no goal/s or dreams, the person who doesn’t know where they are going, whose thoughts are probably thoughts of confusion, anxiety, worry etc. their life probably becomes one full of frustration, fear, anxiety and worry.  (If he thinks about nothing …he becomes nothing….or so it is said)

Why does this happen, how does this happen? Let’s look at a situation that is very relatable.

If a farmer has some good and fertile land the land gives the farmer the choice to plant whatever he chooses. The land doesn’t care what he plants, it is up to the farmer to decide.

If the farmer for example plants two seeds in his fertile earth, a seed of wheat in one hole and a seed of deadly nightshade in another hole, covers them, waters them, takes care of the them, what happens? The land will return to him what he has planted.

The land doesn’t care what he planted; it will return the poison of the deadly nightshade in as much abundance as the good wheat. Hence two plants have grown, one is poison and one is wheat, because both were nurtured.

If we compare the human mind with the land, the mind is like the land, it doesn’t care what you plant in it, because it will return to you what you plant and what you feed and nurture. So if you feed your mind negative thoughts it will give you that, feed it positive thoughts and it will give you that. That’s how it is. Energy follows thought!

The human mind is far more fertile, powerful, incredible and mysterious than the land, but it works in the same way. It doesn’t care what we plant, success or failure, a goal, or confusion, misunderstanding, anxiety, victimhood or fear etc.  But what we plant in it will grow and it will return to us.

The Human mind contains riches beyond our wildest dreams, it will return to us whatever we plant. Think it and it can happen, anything and everything is possible.  So, plant good thoughts, positive thoughts, believe you can and you will, believe you can’t and you won’t.
