We become what we think about. this statement is at the heart of understanding how our thoughts affect who we are, and it points out the connection between what we think and what we become.
When you examine the logic of this connection, it is apparent that if you become what you think about, then you can experience performance and behavior changes by altering the way you think. Your thought process, therefore, is the point where changes need to happen. It is your thought process that affects how you express yourself and who you become.
To use a gardening analogy, thoughts are seeds and our brain is a garden. Given the right conditions, in a gardening situation, the earth will grow anything -- nourishing food or poison.
Much the same as the earth grows what is sowed, so our brains also grow the thoughts (the "thinking seeds") we entertain. Our brain cultivates them and gives them nutrients and sustenance. These thinking seeds ultimately determine who we become, how we deal with issues, how we solve problems, and how we present ourselves. the challenge then becomes how to control what is planted in our brain -- how to sow the right thinking seeds.
Action: You can plant the positive thinking seeds by asking yourself the right questions. Questions are the gateway to your brain finding answers. Negative questions always yield undesirable results. When you ask, "How can I help others be happier?" You will find that you are surrounded by positive, happy people who want to make a difference. Positive questions fill you with a sense of optimism, self confidence, and happiness. Try it!
