Change, Choice and Principles

I have studied for years, ways to control my thoughts. I have known for quite some time that, how you see life could be a great help or a great hindrance to you! Thoughts are so powerful. Do we even realize how powerful they are and if they are helping or hurting our life? I have watched many dear family and friends, face terrible and challenging things in their lives and yet...they still seem to be ok! How does that work?
Then you know others who have had some bad things  happen to them and yet to talk to is just the end of the world. What's the difference? I think their thoughts are a big part of that. Understanding that things will happen, change will come, helps you be better prepared for it. Understanding that we always have a choice, I have heard people ( like myself at times) say " I just don't have a choice" , we always have a choice! Then the principles, that are the very foundation of what we believe or we don't believe... make a huge difference too! Yes, I want to be known as one of THOSE PEOPLE, who face the changes and challenges of life head on, who studies out all the options and makes the wisest choice, and the person that has some great principles to stand on, when all seems lost!
With that tall order, I just placed for myself...I realize that it takes a daily effort to control my thoughts. I can choose to have a good day or bad day. I can choose to be happy or is up to me! I challenge all of us to put more effort in checking the quality of our thoughts on a daily basis, it could make all the difference!


Thought is a vital, living force, the most vital, subtle and irresistible force that exists in the universe.
Thought is a dynamic force.
Thought moves.
Thought is infectious.
Thought creates.
You can work wonders with the power of thought.
Through the instrumentality of thought, you acquire creative power. There are nowadays numerous books on thought-power.

Every thought has a literal value to you in every possible way. The strength of your body, the strength of your mind, your success in life and the pleasures you give to others by your company - all depend on the nature and quality of your thoughts

James Allen , the famous philosopher and writer , wrote a book called “As The Man Think “ This book later on became the foundation for Para psychology in the west .
Dr Stephen Covey is another well-known writer, who in his book called “Seven Habits Of effective People” has also argued on the power and importance of thought level.

I love these quotes by Steven R.Covey...

  “The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” 

  “There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles.” 

  “The way we see the problem is the problem”
