    What is your opinion about the words:

    `We become what we think about`,

    Said by one of the greatest thinkers, and inspirational men of our time - - Earl Nightingale.

      Well taken literally the statement is incorrect. Although as one sentence is most likely taken from a longer statement, so that this one sentence is taken out of context.

      - If we became what we think about when I was thinking about something I would become that thing. A hanbag or a pair of shoes or a cup of coffee.

      However - taken as meaning if you try to look at life in a positive way; do you become a happier person?  Then yes I believe you do. I do understand that this is not always possible.

      Now I will think about something else, as time is what I am thinking about now. smile
      Hope there are some interesting responses to this for you, jacobkuttyta.

      That's not what you're obsessing about. I don't get a tranny vibe from you.
      lol

      I think whatever your messed up thoughts are, you create your life around. That's maybe a little different take on the same thing.

      And so, if you're thoughts are rather good and productive, and you can avoid all the bad obsessions, then you create good and productive situations with like-minded people in them.

          I would pick you up...put you in my pocket and carry you around, but then I'd start thinking about you too much, being there, spendable, immovable and become you?! lol
