You Are What You Think

The Secret Power of the Mind

By

Do you know the secret power of the mind? Do you know how to create the life you want?

It's really not a secret after all. The power is available to every single person, including you. And it's free.

"The secret" is that you are what you think. You become what you think about.

In 1956, Earl Nightingale wrote "The Strangest Secret" in an attempt to teach people the power of the mind, the power of thought. He said, "you become what you think about all day long."

Nightingale's inspiration came from Napoleon Hill's book, "Think and Grow Rich," published in 1937.

For 75 years (and likely long before that), this simple "secret" has been taught to adults around the world. At the very least, the knowledge has been available to us.

So why is it a secret?

We're creatures of habit. We tend to follow the picture in our minds created by our parents, our neighborhoods, our towns and the part of the world from which we come. For good or for bad.

But we don't have to. We each have a mind of our own, capable of imagining life the way we want it.

Start imagining your life the way you want it. Create a picture in your mind and think about that picture steadfastly all day long. Believe in it.

You don't have to tell anybody. Have your own quiet confidence that you can make the picture in your mind come true.

You will start making different choices in line with your picture. You will take small steps in the right direction.

You'll also encounter obstacles. Don't let these obstacles stop you. If you hold your picture of the life you want steadfast in your mind, you will eventually create that life.

What have you got to lose? Close your eyes and start now.

You will become what you think about.
