Thought

 

Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds.

Buddha

It's only a thought and a thought can be changed.

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

Dale Carnegie

If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can transform one million realities.

Maya Angelou

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.

Dr Seuss

You are today where your thoughts have brought you, you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

Rather than trying to monitor your thoughts, we encourage that you simply pay attention to how you are feeling. For if you should choose a thought that is not in harmony with the way that broader, older, wiser, loving Inner Being part of you sees it, you will feel the discord; and then you can easily redirect your thought to something that feels better and, therefore, serves you better.

Abraham-Hicks, from the book, The Law of Attraction

Disappointment is temporary. Only your thought about it is permanent. Change your mind about what has disappointed you and you will change your life.

Neale Donald Walsch

Your body hears everything your mind says.

Naomi Judd

If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.

Lao Tzu

What you do is miniscule in comparison with what you choose to think, because your vibration is so much more powerful and so much more important.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Boston, MA on Sunday, October 20, 1996

You don't think your way into a new kind of living. You live your way into a new kind of thinking.

Whatever you’re thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you’re worrying, you are planning. When you're appreciating you are planning… What are you planning?

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Silver Spring, MD on Saturday, April 19, 1997

You are what you think about all day.

Allen Ginsberg

Never face reality unless your reality is just the way you want it to be.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in San Antonio,TX on Saturday, May 17, 1997

The highest thought is always that thought which contains JOY. The clearest words are those words which contain TRUTH. The grandest feeling is that feeling which you call LOVE…

Neale Donald Walsch

Okay, thoughts, I’m in control. Next!

Annie Zalezsak (23 April 2012)

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

Mahatma Gandhi

Mental illness is wrong thinking. It may be taught. Babies aren't born mentally ill.

Annie Zalezsak, 16 April 2007

Every day you are experiencing the effects of your thoughts.

You don’t think your way into a new kind of living. You live your way into a new kind of thinking.

Henri JM Nouwen

It’s only a thought and a thought can be changed.

Louise Hay

Every day you are experiencing the effects of your thoughts.

Tom Carpenter

If you’re going to be thinking anyway, why not think big?

Donald Trump

Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Asheville, NC on Saturday, September 5, 1998

The power of thought is immensely potent.

Annie Zalezsak 28 June 2011

Think excitement, talk excitement, act out excitement, and you are bound to become an excited person. Life will take on a new zest, deeper interest and greater meaning. You can think, and talk yourself into dullness or into monotony or into unhappiness. By the same process you can build up inspiration, excitement and surging depth of joy.

Norman Vincent Peale

The human race is governed by its imagination.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Every thought has the seed of miraculousness.

Annie Zalezsak, 14 June 2011

The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.

Asian proverb

You are a living magnet; you attract into your life people, situations and circumstances that are in harmony with your dominant thoughts. Whatever you dwell on in the conscious grows in your experience.

Brian Tracy

What worries you masters you.

Haddon W Robinson

What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.

Wayne Dyer (about Wayne Dyer)

The Law of Attraction is responding to your thought, not to your current reality. When you change the thought, your reality must follow suit. If things are going well for you, then focusing upon what is happening now will cause the well-being to continue, but if there are things happening now that are not pleasing, you must find a way of taking your attention away from those unwanted things.

You have the ability to quickly change your patterns of thought, and eventually… your life experience.

Abraham-Hicks, from Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.

Willie Nelson

A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.

Charlotte Bronte

It's lovely to know that the world can’t interfere with the inside of your head.

Frank McCourt

It is the mind that maketh good or ill, that maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor.

Edmund Spencer

The mind is a powerful thing. It is the first step in the triad of creation. First there is Thought, then Word, then Manifestation. It is important to become consciously aware of your thoughts, so that they take you in the direction in which you truly want to go.

Annie Zalezsak

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.

from Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill

The same pattern of thinking that has gotten us to where we are will not get us to where we want to go.

from Awaken the Giant Within, by Anthony Robbins (about Anthony Robbins)

Live as if every thought, good or bad, open or secret, comes back to you. It does.

The Daily Guru

During the time of the darkest night, act as if the morning has already come.

The Talmud

Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Romans 12:12 (see the Bible)

Real, constructive mental power lies in the creative thought that shapes your destiny, and your hour-by-hour mental conduct produces power for change in your life. Develop a train of thought on which to ride. The nobility of your life as well as your happiness depends upon the direction in which that train of thought is going.

Laurence J Peter

The hardest part of gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche.

Robert Heinlein

Inside his head a scene is forming – not just a vague or casual daydream, but a vision of the future that has all the reality, all the intensity of the present. Intuitively, the boy knows that sooner or later what he is visualizing will come to pass. He is sure of it. The scene in his head is a replica of the scene he has just witnessed behind the plate-glass window, with one all-important change. The occupant of the editor’s chair, thirty years hence, is himself. Himself, Roger Ferger, a poor youngster with no connections, no advantages, nothing except an image so powerful that it will bend all the laws of probability until they conform to an even stronger, though hidden law.

He goes home with that image fixed in his head. When he says his prayers that night, he relives his dream and asks for help in achieving it. Night after night he does this, unaware that by imaging himself so intensely in that editorial chair, and by reinforcing that image with prayer, he is touching the Kingdom of God within himself and releasing forces more powerful than he knows. How do I know this story? I know because Roger Ferger related it to me years after that memorable day in his childhood. He told me when he was not merely the editor but also the publisher and the owner of the Cincinatti Enquirer.

from Positive Imaging, by Norman Vincent Peale

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses.

Allophones Karr

A difficulty is approached rightly when you inquire inwardly, 'How can I think about this in a different way from last time?’

The Daily Guru

A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.

Oscar Wilde

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

Peace Pilgrim (1908-1981) American peace activist (about Peace Pilgrim)

You are not happy because you are well. You are well because you are happy. You are not depressed because trouble has come to you, but trouble has come to you because you are depressed. You can change your thoughts and feelings, and then the outer things will come to correspond, and indeed there is no other way of working.

Emmet Fox

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.

Buddha

The thoughts we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives.

Louise Hay

The Law of Attraction is responding to your thought, not to your current reality. When you change the thought, your reality must follow suit. If things are going well for you, then focusing upon what is happening now will cause the well-being to continue, but if there are things happening now that are not pleasing, you must find a way of taking your attention away from those unwanted things.

You have the ability to quickly change your patterns of thought, and eventually… your life experience.

Take 15 minutes daily, thinking of pleasant scenarios regarding your body, with the sole intent of enjoying your body and appreciating its strength and stamina and flexibility and beauty. When you visualize for the joy of visualizing rather than with the intention of correcting some deficiency, your thoughts are more pure and, therefore, more powerful. When you visualize to overcome something that is wrong, your thoughts are diluted with the “lackful” side of the equation. In time, your physical condition will acquiesce to your dominant thoughts.

Abraham-Hicks, from the book Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth and Happiness

The only things in your control are your thoughts and then your actions.  Positive, powerful thoughts lead to positive, powerful actions, and when done with repeated consistency this cycle leads to greatness. Dream it! Pray for it! Believe it! Work for it! and then be ready when it happens!

Greg Werner, Strength and Conditioning Coach

To think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral down into ever increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that discipline – training – is about.

from the novel Shogun by James Clavell

The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.

William James

But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

George Gordon Byron
