As He Thinks, So He Is

ALL THAT a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts. A man’s weakness AND strength, purity AND impurity, are his own, and not another man’s; they are brought about by himself, and not by another; and they can only be altered by himself, never by another. His condition is also his own, and not another man’s. His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within. As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.
-James Allen
One of the scariest and most beautiful days of our lives is the day we start to take responsibility for our condition. Not blaming or pointing fingers, not developing excuses for why or why not, but instead, realizing how we’ve been, how we are and how we’ll be is all a product of our choosing.
