A wise man once said, “Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions. Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character.
T for Thoughts
When thoughts of defeat or hopelessness creep into your mind, caste them out with the word of God and the words of your mouth.
W for Words
When people offend or try to ruffle your feathers, don’t be the I-say-my-mind sort of human being, they don’t go far in life. Keep quiet, observe and make your move. As they say, silence is the best answer for a fool.
A for Actions
In the words of Martin Luther King, Jnr. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”.
Watch your actions (disposition, character, temperament).
When things are going well, don’t belittle others, don’t look down or trample on people or forsake your friends.
When things are not going well, don’t look down on yourself, don’t blame others for your predicament or question God
In everything gives thanks (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
Remember, your thoughts are more powerful than a pack of dogs, tame them. Your words are more potent than a bottle of poison, watch it. Your disposition is more radiating than the brightest bulb, check it.
