All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Our destiny is in our own hands. Since we are formed by our thoughts, it follows that we become tomorrow is shaped by what we think today.
Happily, we can choose the way we think. We can choose our feelings, aspirations, desires, and the way we view our world and ourselves. Mastery of the mind opens avenues of hope. We can begint o reshape our life and character, rebuild relationships, thrive in the stress of daily living – we can become the kind of person we want to be.
