Throughout time, there’s been an extremely valuable, life enhancing principle that’s been agreed to and experienced by all of the great thought leaders in history. Buddha, Christ, Aristotle, Disraeli, Ralph Waldo Emerson, George Bernard Shaw, Dorothea Brande, Napoleon Hill, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and many more all proved to themselves and articulated their versions of this same message:
“We become what we think about”
It’s an amazing principle, sometimes not fully understood to a degree that makes it useful and somewhat difficult to take advantage of. To understand it at a level where it becomes impactful and to be able to reap the gifts it delivers requires a highly determined commitment. To be able to produce the necessary commitment, it seems that an extreme desire to live a much more successful, calm and comfortable life must also exist.
But what could be a more worthy reason to develop and generate the needed desire and commitment for this than our lives? Who wouldn’t choose to be happier and more satisfied if they knew that they truly could be?
We know of one person who has captured the essence of the “we become what we think about” principle and was able to explain it in a way that, in our opinion, is the best. His name is Earl Nightingale and his words are contained in an audio message called “The Strangest Secret” which he created in 1956.
For many, listening to “The Strangest Secret” could represent the best thirty one minutes they’ve ever invested for their lives. We recommend listening to it frequently.
