Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. If it is your character to watch your thoughts, words, actions and habits, you will be able to weed out your negative thoughts as they arise. A negative mindset is the result of negative emotions. Once you are aware of this, you will be able to ensure whatever is good for you. For controlling my thoughts, I have found a simple way : GIGO vs. BIBO ` Good Ideas In Good Ideas Out (GIGO). As you sow, so shall you reap. Bad Ideas In Bad Ideas Out is BIBO. I was a winner when I was born. My `competition` was severe. So was yours. Think it over!
