Thinking for a Change

 

Zig Ziglar said, “The most influential person who will talk to you all day is you.  So, you should be very careful what you say to you.”

I believe we go to where our thoughts go.  The more we dream the more the potential for something greater can be realized.  Can be easy to sit back and allow things/life to happen to us.  However, the more we cultivate a healthy self-image the more that will begin to affect our actions.

I have worked with troubled youth over the last ten years.  It has been very rewarding and discouraging all at the same time.  For every one student that gets it, are several more who are determine to go their own way.  It is very similar to that quote up above, “The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.”  However, the quote is true of anything from business corporations, to churches, to families, to any organization.  The answer often is staring us in the face and yet it can be difficult to see what that answer is.

In the end we are what we think.  The results we get are the results we expected, because the dream was not large enough.

    LOVE the Zig Ziglar quotation. I need to be more careful what I say to myself…truly. I appreciate your thoughts, too, about the youth with whom you have worked. Nice post!

    Having been a pastor/pastor’s wife for several years I know exactly how you feel. You are invested in the ones you serve and it hurts when they choose to “be blind.” Thanks for the blog.
