Many people do a “wordless Wednesday” blog post which features a lovely photo or photo essay. But I’m going to be a little different and do a “Words Wednesday” post,

because while watching the film The Iron Lady recently, these wise words from Margaret Thatcher served as a timely reminder of how powerful thoughts and words can be:

Watch your thoughts, because they become words.Watch your words, because they become actions.Watch your actions, because they become habits. Watch your habits, because they become character.Watch your character, because it becomes your destiny.

This isn’t something I haven’t heard before. In fact, it just elaborates on a verse from the Bible: “As a man thinkers in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7) But since  I have been thinking about a lot of things lately, and trying to act on them, it really struck a chord with me.

What are you thinking and what actions are you taking to make your thoughts your destiny? 

 Wherever your thoughts lead you…
