Bit of Happy #87: It All Begins In The Mind

26 Jan

“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.”
-Frank Outlaw

Like a small seed planted into the ground, your destiny begins from a simple thought. As the thought turns into words, which turns into actions, what was once a tiny seed begins budding in new growth. From your repetitious actions, habits slowly form, and your character begins to emerge. And who you are and the path you proceed in this life will ultimately determine your fate.

I think this is an incredible quote and offers some great advice. It shows the power of a simple thought and its ability to lead you into the future. Watching what you think, what you say and how you act is good practice for anyone. Focusing on positive thoughts will bring positive words, actions and habits. Building an optimistic character will spread that same optimism all around you. And by surrounding yourself with happiness, love and strength, a beautiful flower will begin to blossom.
