We Must Live As We Think – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 682 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget…
Today’s quote is from Paul Bourget who said, “We must live as we think. Otherwise, we shall end up by thinking as we have lived.”
We Must Live As We Think
There are two choices when it comes to directing how we live. We can proactively think forward to what we desire, or we can reactively live based on our thinking in the past.
A wise person will direct positive change in their lives by absorbing information that will project them positively forward. Realizing that if they can change how they think and what they think about, then they can truly change the destiny of their lives.
An unwise person will be stuck in the mud and mire of the past because they believe the lie that there is no way to change past thinking and circumstances, so they are forever doomed to live in the future in the same manner as they lived in the past. If you are forever chained to the past, then you will be continually repeating your past behaviors and outcome for life.
You choose your thinking. Choose to think forward, or live based on your past thinking. Success is a few simple disciplines, practiced every day while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. Although your future choices are impacted by your past choices, you do not need to remain there.
Proverbs 15:28 – The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words.
