“We Become What We Think About.” — Earl Nightingale
I was looking for techniques for how to change your life.
One of that caught my eye, is a technique by Earl Nightingale.
In the book, How To Completely Change Your Life in 30 Seconds, Robert C. Worstell shares insight and inspiration from Earl Nightingale on how to instantly change your life.
3 Steps to Change Your Life
According to Earl Nightingale, you become what you think about. And that’s the key to changing your life.
Here’s the secret in 3 steps:
- Suspend disbelief as you read the following:
- “We Become What We Think About.” — Earl Nightingale
- Then, decide that it’s true.
Test it for yourself. See if changing your thoughts changes your life.
“Now, the rest of your life, you’ll be testing this for yourself. You may be asking questions like these:
- Can you actually change what you think about?
- Do positive thoughts create a positive personal environment?
- By being critical of anything or anyone around you, do you actually improve conditions?
- Is your health affected by negative thinking?
You’ll find continuing instances of how this is true and how it might not be.
You’ll be ‘haunted’ by this singular thought, although the results won’t make you lose sleep – instead, you’ll awake with fresh inspirations from time to time about how to live your life even better than you are now.
Because you’ve just started on a journey which has no definite end. “
Become the Person You Want to Become
You might not have thought about it this way before, but living unsuccessfully is more difficult than becoming the person you want to become. It comes with a price, but the price is worth it.
“As Earl Nightingale once said: ‘Do what the experts since the dawn of recorded history have told us to do: pay the price, by becoming the person you want to become. It’s not nearly as difficult as living unsuccessfully.’
‘Start today. You have nothing to lose – but you have your whole life to win.’”
Can you change what you think about?
