You are What You Think You Are

By:  Gilbert M. Forbes

Have you experience assigning a fellow worker to do a presentation and the loudest reply is, "Sorry sir,  I can't."  What about asking for an information and the immediate answer is, "I don't know."  Remember this, you are what you think you are.

What occupies your mind and what you think means more than anything else in your life. Your thought of life will determine what you become-- indeed, your life, situation today is only the result of your decision yesterday which is the product of your mindset.

Be careful about what you set your hearts on, for you'll get it.  Be careful about what occupies your mind because it will greatly determine what you'll become tomorrow.  As Proverbs 23: 7, NKJV says, "As he thinks in his heart, so is he."

On the other hand, some or many are pretending to be in at times awkward position just to preserve their comfort zones.  And so, they are using the replies above as their alibis just because they don't want additional responsibilities, or twist in their daily work routines, even if it is for their benefit and of the organization.

The sad thing is, if it becomes a habit, then, it will become a character.  So who will be at the losing end? How can we become the best person that we can be?  That will be the next subject in the next post.
