Watch your thoughts, they become words

Watch Your Thoughts

Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

This well-known and powerful Lao Tzu quote speaks to the importance of our thoughts. Because it is such a long quote, many of us simply refer to it as the “watch your thoughts, they become words” quote. However, it is important to remain cognizant of the entire quote because it implies that our thoughts shape our lives, and therefore our thoughts lead to our destinies. 

To put it into a bit of perspective – if you allow yourself to be drained by negative thoughts, you are opening up a path to a negative destiny.

This quote is attributed to Lao Tzu. He was a mystic philosopher of ancient China and author of the Tao Te Ching, which is the original Taoist text published during the 3rd century. 

Be careful of your thoughts!
