Whether you think you can or not, you are right! The Bible tells us that “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7)
Race car drivers are trained not to look at the wall. They know that your behaviors, your body, and your actions will follow the object of your focus/your thoughts.
Any change you want to make in your life has to begin with your thought processes. If your thoughts tend to lean toward the negative, you will find yourself surrounded by negative people and situations. Want to change your situation, begin by changing your thoughts! (You may have to change a few people, too.) Start with your thoughts. Be deliberate about what you think and what you say.
Change your thoughts; change your life!
