Think About it Thursdays

A fellow blogger, boylerpf (check her out here), posted this quote a couple of weeks ago and I felt it's so powerful that I wanted to share it with you all here. Awesome!

“Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.”

this is a principle that has recently been coming to fruition in my life....my life is so much different than it ever was and it has all to do with God helping me relearn how I am to think of myself. thanks for sharing Diane

Hi Diane,

Thanks for stopping in at my two blogs! I loved this post, I need these kind of reminders to change my thinking if I want to see results.

Blessings!

Diane - Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope your daughter likes my story. I'm not interested in giveaways right now, but I'll be back for "Think about it Thursdays." That sounds great. I love to think. See you then or sooner.

What a great quote! There is a whole school of thought about how we get what we think about, either success or failure.

BTW, How in the world did a I miss a Vera Bradley give away????? What was wrong with me! :)

Great quote. I hope it's true!

Congrats, Jennifer!

This qoute sounds like Joyce Meyer, but that's a moot point. It's really Jesus: "As you think in your heart, so you are."

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Congrats, Jennifer!!

That's an interesting quote. We do gravitate to what we believe, so it's got a lot of merit!

Perfect. One of my favorite quotes, which I heard in Weight Watchers: "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got."

Jody Hedlund said...

Love the quote! It's true of us as writers too. If we believe we are, then that's what we become!

Jill Kemerer said...

Oh yes. Great quote. If we do nothing, nothing will change--how depressing is that?

Congrats to Jennifer on the awesome purse win! Woo-hoo!
Have a great weekend!

Great quote. One to "think on." "As a man thinketh, so is he."
Good reminder, Diane.

Thanks

Congrats to Jennifer...lucky girl!

I still read that quote all the time...especially when I get a little upset about something. I have to step back and realize I'm the only one that can make the change! Thanks for the shout!! XO
