Do you have any favourite quotes, proverbs or mantras that you draw upon to help you get back on track? One of my favourite ancient proverbs is more probably more meaningful today then ever……………..
It is supposedly either a Chinese proverb or a Mahatma Gandhi quote…….
“Carefully watch your thoughts, for they become your words.
Manage and watch your words, for they become your actions.
Consider and judge your actions, for they have become your habits.
Acknowledge and watch your habits, for they shall become your values.
Understand and embrace your values, for they become your destiny”.
Our words are no longer contained to those closest to us. These days, they are often out for public display, with so many forms of social media and mobile technology. Now more then ever, we need to be careful with our thoughts and words, for as the proverb tells us, they become our destiny. How positive are you with your thoughts and words? I’m sure we could all improve.
