Thoughts are things. They shape our internal landscape, which creates our external landscape. Enthusiasm attracts enthusiastic people. Creativity attracts creative people. Strong values attract values-driven people. Get it? We become—and attract—what we believe. So are you focusing on the possible or the past? On being positive or pessimistic? Of course, blind optimism isn’t practical or prudent. Thinking things are perfect won’t make them so. However, thinking something possible is the only place to start. Your feet will follow your eyes. What you believe shapes what you see, how you act, and who you become.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
- Margaret Mead, American cultural anthropologist
