GUARD YOUR THOUGHTS
“Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become your character. And watch your character for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.” ― Margaret Thatcher
It begs to ask, “Are you rock solid with your words or can a slight thrust of wind blow them and you away?” Most definitely our words become our talking mouthpiece. We should use discernment with what we say. Once our words escape our mouths, we cannot take them back. They live on! They speak for us, present our character, and represent - who we are.
Thoughts, words, actions, habits, character, destiny - What is the meaning of all of this?
My Momma told me years ago, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!”
C‘mon now! Ain’t that’s the truth!
I cannot count the number of times in life that I have considered a contrary path and those very words came back to haunt me! They made me change my proposed direction.
Developing a conscientious conscience is the best invention since peanut butter and jelly!
If your conscience talks to you, keeps you up at night, and slaps you around, it’s working! It will help you make sound decisions. It will determine where you land - your destiny.
Yes, our character is very telling. It speaks just as loud as or louder than the utterance of our words.
If your character lacks integrity, so do you! Be on guard. Poor character decisions never go unnoticed. They may figuratively orbit you into outer space. As for me, I want to keep my feet on solid ground! Don't you?
