Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
― Mahatma Gandhi
Powerful is the description for these words. Whether you are a process person or are only interested in results… This quote offers both.
It’s more evident with time WE are the ripple. We ripple through our own lives.
Others can toss us off course, but our strength is built on how well we pull ourselves back to center when forces attempt to toss us off.
As a kid – I remember observing those around me reacting to positive words, thoughts, and actions versus negativity. The good stuff resulted in a stronger trajectory. It might be something as simple as a sibling asking for help on a household chore. I learned early I could make it difficult or I could be helpful. It’s not hard to tell which had a more favorable result.
When you lift morale around you and look for ways to make things happen most positively – you help build momentum for others trying to reach their own goals.
That’s the good stuff.
