Want to know where your life is headed? Pay attention to the things you think about when you don’t have to think about anything.
I was pondering this the other day when I realized that a number of things I had daydreamed about for years all had begun to materialize. Things that had consumed my thoughts at odd hours and random moments… and here they were: the physical manifestation of those things.
I was amazed and grateful, for new reinforcement that these principles are (still) true. (Yes, life has a way of challenging us anew at every level.)
Come to think of it, these daydreams of mine – consciously selected and cherished – have got to be some of the longest ones I’ve ever waited for. We’re talking about 25 years for one of them and about 8 years for the other, and both of them happened in just the last 2 weeks.
So, I reiterate: How can you know where your life is headed? Pay attention to the thoughts that fill your mind when you don’t have to be thinking about something else. Now is the time to choose your destiny… and it all begins with the seed of thought.
Choose carefully… you are literally the captain of your soul.
