Part 2: Watch Your WORDS!
Today we continue our discussion of the progression to our DESTINY - pretty powerful to consider, wouldn't you agree?
"How do I create a destiny? How do I leave behind a great destiny?"
Both of these questions are answered the same way. IT BEGINS WITH YOUR THOUGHTS!
Again, follow the progression that you find in the graphic above and you will clearly see the "path to your destiny" right before your very eyes! Easier said than done? ABSOLUTELY!
C'mon, what did you think? A DESTINY is not something that is done haphazardly or without thought and planned actions. No friend, too many people have thought that and tried that only to fail and leave a destiny of failure and despair.
A powerful, positive and great DESTINY is something that is done on PURPOSE!
Go back and read that last sentence again. It was pretty good if I do say so myself! You WILL leave "a" destiny - one way or the other. However, what kind of destiny you leave is totally up to you and your PLANNED or UNPLANNED approach.
For those who are just not "getting it", what you see in the graphic above is a PLAN - a road map - to a positive and powerful destiny! It's right there in front of you as I have already pointed out.
Your THOUGHTS become WORDS and your WORDS become ACTIONS.
Don't believe it? Just take a look around you and observe. Now, since you likely wouldn't believe it if someone told you that you spoke and active in a negative way, then take a look at others around you. See those that talk and act negatively? If you think and speak that way then, friend, you also ACT just like them!
Have you ever heard that phrase, "You are what you eat" ?
It's true here as well. You are what you consume mentally. You ARE what you allow into your mind and mindset - positive or negative. And, if you allow BOTH in then, guess which one will come out on top? Whichever you allow in most. That's right!
Last night while in a different room than where the television was, I heard a game show host "interviewing" one of the contestants at the start of the show. I listened with interest as this lady responded to questions about her work, her husband and her family with such positive words! She CHOSE carefully the words that she used as she talked about the company that she worked for being "the best (of this type) company in the whole world". She continued by referring to her husband as "the best husband that a woman could ask for" and her kids as "each of them are awesome and amazing young people". Now, these aren't exact quotes but they are very close to what she said.
Let me ask you a question. How do you think this lady performed at her workplace? How do you think she generally interacted with her husband and her children?
Without knowing anything about her (other than what I heard her speak) I would suggest that she was a GREAT and VALUED employee and one that had a very special relationship with her husband as well as her children.
Her THOUGHTS became her WORDS and her WORDS became her ACTIONS!
"For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he..." (Proverbs 23:7). And yes, this verse is the premise on which James Allen wrote his famous book, "As a Man Thinketh".
Want to change your behavior? Change your words.
Want to change your words? Change your thoughts.
The path to your great and powerful DESTINY awaits!
And, as you move along this great path, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
