“So many highly respected thinkers in disparate disciplines have concluded that thought, the mind, is the total determiner of how our lives will go. The Dutch philosopher Spinoza said, “I saw that all things I feared, and which feared me, had nothing good or bad in them save insofar as the mind was affected by them.” Albert Ellis, the founder of Rational Emotive Therapy, stated, “People and things do not upset us, rather we upset ourselves by believing that they can upset us.” “We become what we think about all day long,” according to Ralph Waldo Emerson. “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” Shakespeare tells us. Abraham Lincoln said, “People are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.” “Change your thoughts and you change your world” was how Norman Vincent Peale put it. Jesus tells us, “As you think, so shall you be.”
Our futures are formed by the thoughts we hold most often. We literally become what we think about, and we are all given the gift of being able to write our own story.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “You’ll See It When You Believe It”
