Why do some people succeed while others fail?
Earl Nightingale, the great success writer, broadcaster and speaker, addressed this issue in his famous recorded message entitled “The Strangest Secret.”
In this program, he identified the key to success in just six words. Of course, he went on to explain it in more detail — but the foundation of his success secret is only six words.
Well, before we discuss the key to success, you might be surprised to learn that the same six words are also the key to failure!
The key 6 words according to Earl Nightingale are,
‘WE BECOME WHAT WE THINK ABOUT.’
Henry Ford, said: “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right!”
The idea that we become what we think about has also been expressed as the ‘Law of Dominant Thought.’
This means that there’s a power within each of us that propels us in the direction of our current dominant thoughts.
The key word here is Dominant. You can’t expect positive results when you spend 10 seconds a day thinking positively and the remaining 16 waking hours dwelling on negative outcomes!
A little positive thinking doesn’t produce positive results. Just like a little bit of a diet doesn’t work. It’s like trying to lose weight by eating a healthy, low-calorie breakfast and then indulging on cake and ice cream for the rest of the day!
The same is true of exercise, you can’t do a few minutes of exercise once a week and expect to be physically fit.
Look at positive thinking in the same way. A little bit just doesn’t get the job done. Instead, you must take control of your mental activity and think positively throughout each and every day until it becomes a habit.
Up to this point in your life it has been your thought patterns that has led you to your beliefs and it will be up to you to change those thought patterns and create new positive beliefs from this moment on that will lead you to where you wish to be in your future.
You must make your positive thoughts your dominant thoughts in all areas of your life. Only then will you start to see the changes you desire and the life you dream of.
Take a moment to consider your dominant thoughts in the major areas of your life.
Are they serving you or holding you back?
Make Positive thinking your dominant thought and Stay blessed forever.
