As I kept hearing this phrase over and over again, I struggled with it. I couldn’t understand how that’s possible! How can you become what you think about? It didn’t make any sense. I first heard it on Earl Nightingale’s tape called The Strangest Secret which you can find on YouTube here. Then I heard the same thing on Oprah’s Master Class Podcast.
It’s crazy to think about it, but it’s true. I don’t know anyone and I’ve never heard of anyone who has ever achieved anything without thinking it, seeing it and believing in it. All begins with a thought in your head. Think about the Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bezos, Serena Williams of the world, your local small business owner, …
Once you look at all these people, you find they have one thing in common. Whatever they do or did, started as a thought and they believed in it so hard to the exclusive of everything else.
Be careful what you think about. Your brain is wired for survival, so when those negative thoughts come, just tell your brain “thank you very much for letting me know, now let’s get going”. Don’t let it freeze you, or hold you back, be aware of them, and keep moving forward.
Your thoughts create reality for you. It doesn’t if you’re just sitting around saying I want something. But if your energy (actions) and your vibrational frequency (thoughts) are correct and are in sync with what is to come your way, there is a space you create that allows your thoughts to become a reality.
