Thoughts That Matter



“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”
Mark Twain

Live every day as if what you do matters. Every choice you make; every action you take – matters. Your choices matter to you and create the life you live. Your choices matter at work. You choose the path of productivity and contribution or, you choose the path of a doubtful employee.


Every action we take affects organisational progress in one way or in another. You can always make a difference. Let that difference move your world forward. You matter. And, your thoughts matter, too.


We become what we think about most.” Earl Nightingale’s wise words of the power of our thoughts is one of the most significant statements ever made. Think about it. Your thoughts are always with you.


And, they tend to play themselves over and over again in our head. They either support you to think about and take positive action or the opposite. Your thoughts either criticise or they support the accomplishment of your goals.


Listen to the voice in your mind. You know the thing. Negative thoughts are overwhelming and they can take control of our mind for days. But to replay a situation that has already occurred, or how to make excuses or blame others is not powerful thinking.


When your thoughts are negative or unsupported of your happiness and success, you have to change your thinking. Gently, do not beat yourself up but try to redirect your thinking to more positive thoughts that will support your success and happiness. Laugh, if you can, when you think about the time you spent obsessing over matters that are over and completed.


Our thoughts are the headlights leading our way. They always precede you and your actions. As Nightingale said, “The mind moves in the direction of our currently dominant thoughts.” Believe him.

Your thoughts govern the success of your interpersonal interactions. Your thoughts are the headlights illuminating your path in the darkness. Make today count. Commit to focus on positive thoughts that matter.

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”
Mahatma Gandhi
