“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” -Henry David Thoreau
Whether you like the sophistication of Henry David Thoreau or the simplicity of The Little Engine that could,
One thing is certain:
Thoughts are powerful.
The key is to remember that we have a choice over what thoughts we give power to.
Sadly, many of us are more comfortable believing that we are going to fail than we are believing that we are going to succeed. It is because of this, that the trodden trails of our mindsets are often the ones that lead nowhere.
Stepping off a familiar path can be scary… but it's the only way to give power to new possibilities.
