Picture Blog #24 : A Thought A Day (Part 2)

You are who you think you are. Think like a victor, not a victim.

I shared A Thought A Day (Part 1) earlier this year. Since then, 238 days have gone by and 238 daily thoughts have been gathered.

It is believed that we have about 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts on an average day and many of them are negative. If left unmanaged, they would shape negative habits and reduce our quality of life.

We need to be aware of our thoughts. While we can't rid all negative thoughts, we can have many more positive ones to influence our predominant mindset.

In this Picture Blog, I am merely putting down a tiny speck of what might have gone through my mind. Nothing is very new but it is always good to remind ourselves of the simplest and yet most often forgotten ideas.

I shall leave you with this quote and a collection of my daily thoughts taken from Vanilla Lenscape.

"Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny." ~Mahatma Gandhi~

Don’t be afraid to lose before you win.

The biggest mistake is to see a mistake as a mistake.

Accept that you are not perfect. Do your best nonetheless.

If you can’t do great things, do small ones with a great difference.

Falling down is a given. Getting up or staying there is a choice.

Would you rather take the pain of discipline or the pain of regret?

In this age of information, you have no excuse to be ignorant.

Everyone deserves a chance to be free.
You don’t have to the THE best. You just have to be at YOUR best.
Kind words cost nothing. Yet, they are priceless.

A lifelong learner never takes a break.

Focusing in simple things in life can be liberating.

Nothing is more ignorant than choosing not to know what you don’t know.

No one in this world can do a better job of being you than you.

Negative thinking makes you tired.

Don’t just wish that you have something. You need to act.

Every tiny step forward is a worthwhile action.

Your presence is a present to the world. Don’t forget to unwrap it.

When angry, take a deep breath.

For each failure you encounter, you are one step closer to success.

Everyone looks. Few see.

Don’t use a lot when a little will do.

How much you think you have depends on how much you think you need.

Life is an opportunity. Capture it.

Spend some time alone every day.

Don’t wait till the light goes out.

You are in charge of your attitude.
Sometimes, I suddenly understand something I’ve understood all my life but in a new way.
