You Are What You Think


We’ve all heard the saying… “You are what you eat” when talking about food and how what we put in determines what we get out.

The same goes for what we feed our minds.

As Henry Ford said,
“Think you can or think you can’t, either way… you’re right.”

Fear, insecurities, dwelling on past mistakes, or simply not believing in yourself… these are all devices that the enemy uses to keep you down. Devices to undermine your confidence and stop you from becoming who you were meant to be.

You can change that.

But it starts in your mind (and what you tell it).

  • “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”
  • “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
  • “The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.”
  • “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” – Philippians 4:8

    Love it, Daniel! Just talking about these very points with my kids. This type of thinking is appropriate even for teenagers…especially one who is coming back from an injury. Keep up the great work!


  • Great reminder. I especially liked your point “The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.” I think it's time for me to reread "As A Man Thinketh".
