Two of the most powerful words; for what you put after them shapes your reality.

When we are capable of projecting our own being, via true combinations of language, intention, focus and aspirations, we find ourselves in a position of mentally sculpting our true essence.
Buddha said, “what we think, we become.“ This is, at essence, an identical perspective on this particular thought process.
We are an open book, a clean slate, and our future is entirely predicated upon that which we are myopically focused, and determined to achieve.
It surprises me that such an important lesson is really not ever taught with frequency. We might pick it up through a meme, or a blog or a podcast or similar, but in the traditional annals of education, there is generally not a focus on the mental ramifications of making intelligent choices within the topics of which we are willing to focus throughout the course of our lives. And then cementing those choices through daily mental intention.
Perhaps, if this were much more rudimentary in the formative stages of our lives, so much more of what we might choose for ourselves, would be more readily contemplated, calculated, planned for and ultimately anticipated as it manifests in our daily lives.
We only have one shot as a three dimensional being walking this planet, so it is all the more imperative to truly make it count.
Our opportunity for that arises through our determined focus, paired with our continual reacquaintance with those thought processes that facilitate our ability to ultimately prevail in life.
