“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”
Have you ever found that the things you don’t want to do, or the type of person that you don’t want to become, can happen without your even realizing it? That a small thing can become a larger thing and before you know what has happened your thoughts become your words, and your words become actions you never intended. The good news is that you can fix this by addressing the root source, the thoughts that are driving everything else.
I unfortunately have made plenty of mistakes in this arena through life (and continue to do so). Fortunately I have had the rich blessing of great friends and confidants to help address some of my mistakes and challenges before they become tremendous character flaws. They have helped me reframe my thinking and realize that I the lens through which I have been viewing the world is distorted. The value of people who will help you see those things that you can’t is immeasurable. Who is helping you see the things you can’t, or won’t, see without outside perspective?
