I am not my thoughts. I am what I do.
The above line sums it up. Go ahead, try it out. You are not your thoughts. They’re just a bunch of random things running through your head. Many of them you have no control over.
Eventually we’d all like to have better, more positive thoughts. But sitting there isn’t going to make it happen.
It’s when we challenge our bodies and minds, when we experience, when we face our fears, when we accomplish – even when we fail – that we truly change who we are.
You could be the smartest person in the world, but that doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t take action.
Remember that the next time you’re not ‘feeling it’. When you’re not in the mood to go to work or take a significant step in life. When you’re doubting yourself too much to get started.
Forget all of it. Just take the first step. And the next one. And the next one.
You are not your thoughts. Act. You are what you do.
