As Emerson once said, the ancestor to every action is a thought. We have also heard, as we think so we shall become. Or you become what you think about all day long. All these expressions and countless many others indicate that the first element needed for success is right thinking.
If thoughts are the precursor to actions, it is our words that act as the bridge between them. How we speak to ourselves and to others is of critical importance. It is essential to have harmony between our thoughts, words and actions. If you think one thing, speak contradictory to those thoughts, and do something different, you will never succeed or be happy. You may fool others (or yourself) in the short term but in the long term your life will never be truly fulfilling. Even if you do all right financially, you’ll be a mental, emotional and spiritual wreck![googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
Long lasting inner happiness as well as the stable outer success will only occur if you’re able to harmonize your thoughts, words and actions. As an example, if you are thinking financial freedom can be attained in real estate but fail to speak to yourself and others in a congruent fashion, or are not willing take the necessary actions, you will not achieve your goals. Even if you do two out of three you’ll still suffer the consequences of your inconsistencies
Have the courage to speak confidently about how you see your future unfolding and then act decisively in a manner that’s consistent with your vision. Only in this way can we truly realize our potential.
