You Become What You Think About

Guest Post by Joyce Holthaus originally published at LifeMadeWell.net


I’ve heard the above statement a few times and I don’t know that I ever realized the depth of that statement until this year.

The full quote is

“You become what you think about all day long.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I find it fascinating as I’ve listened to different people from different backgrounds talk about this.

Napoleon Hill talks about this a lot in his book “Think and Grow Rich”.  He goes so far as to state that many people remain in poverty because of what they think or don’t think about.


When you think about what Emerson said in the quote above, take a look at where you are today…are you stuck in a career or job that you dislike? Feel trapped? Always struggling to make ends meet? Or are you enjoying life and all it has to offer you?

Could it be a result of what you think about? We learn how to think negatively from a very young age. Many times our negative thinking has been passed down to us through the generations.

BUT, guess what? (My grandson always says that to me when he’s going to tell me something big!)

You don’t have to stay where you are today. You can literally change the way you think.

Years ago when I ventured out to become an entrepreneur, I had what I call an “I can’t” attitude – always thinking “I can’t do that or that will never happen for me”. 

This quote was life changing for me

“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.” ~Henry Ford
