Thoughts - how it affect us?

have you ever thought, what is the right manner of speaking your thoughts?

is there a right or wrong? Or very precise yes, no, um-ahh?

Answer is, we have guidelines in our lives, just that with different backgrounds that we went through we became who we are. Or sometimes, we just choose to be like that, because we chose to... such explains why they are so many gangsters, robbers, killers, prostitutes etc.. becoz they have chosen such a path, no one was able to stop them, or it could be that we tried but failed to bring them to the light.

Thoughts, once provoke, will slowly shape itself into 2 things, words and actions. It is said that thoughts is the foundation to all things that we do... and thus it is important to take care of that part in our lives, as bad thoughts = bad words and actions. Negative thoughts, silly thoughts, nonsense thoughts, lustful thoughts, ignorant thoughts, etc will each shape itself to become a reality somehow or rather. It will be apparent on what others see in us, or simply when our actions prove what it is we're actually thinking inside.

2 parts taken from the bible:

Colossians 3:1-2


1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.


Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.

Romans 12:1-3


1 2 I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship.


Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.


For by the grace given to me I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than one ought to think, but to think soberly, each according to the measure of faith that God has apportioned

For even the bible states what we ought to be thinking as it will ultimately affect us as a whole in the end. Fix your thoughts right, then everything will move its place as it should.

A quote:

"Change your thoughts and you change your world."
Norman Vincent Peale
US clergyman (1898 - 1993)

The book "Secret" also teaches bout how powerful the human thought process is till it can make the seemingly impossible thing happen, to actually happen.... by first having a thought, repeating it all the time in your head and working on it, till it happens one day as how you see it...

I highly recommend the book/movie if you are able to get it:

Thus, ask yourself as to why an interviewer would want certain candidates, yet reject some although they have exceptional skills? Is because of who they chose to be, their character-wise and personality will just make things difficult... That is why tough questions are thrown during an interview to see who you really are inside. For for a company, skills can be trained, but human character is hard to mold and change. But truly, if you have the belief that you can, you can be an entirely different person in due time. It could take a long time to change, but it's worth it, if you are able to improve yourself for the better.

People around you who'd want to see you be a better person, would definitely advice you on areas you can work on. Trust your own judgement on where you can improve on based on their feedback, and keep moving forward till you improve. There is no looking back... for life is only so short, not to be wasted in the past.
