Our Thoughts Become Us

Mike Dooley has a daily posting in which he shares a brief blip of wisdom which can best be described as “New Age.”  His thoughts are often timely and he even knows me by my first name!  And he will know you by your first name!  But what I really like about his posting is a simple bromide he always concludes with, “Thoughts become things.  Choose the good ones.”  I like to adapt it to my own perspective and it comes out, “Thoughts are things.  Choose the good ones.”

For, as cognitive behavioral psychology teaches us, our thoughts do have a powerful influence on our moods and behavior.  Simply stated, change your thoughts and you change your life.  And, yes, that is easier said than done but it deserves being mulled over.  As Proverbs noted, “As a man thinketh, so is he.”
