"Pay attention to your thoughts, for they become your words.
Pay attention to your words, for they become your acts.
Pay attention to your acts, for they become your habits. 
Pay attention to your habits, for they become your character.
Pay attention to your character, for it becomes your destiny." - Unknown
I've been challenged to pay attention to my thoughts and I am doing just that. As a result, I traced some results in my life that started with negative thinking. Today I am encouraged to change my thoughts by meditating on the right things. Meditating on good results does not mean you are "faking it," it means you are "practicing." Practicing is the only way to learn something for good, correct? 
Let's see how we can use thoughts to attain a healthier body. For months before I started running I would meditate on how I enjoyed running and exercising. I would actually read that confession out loud in the morning. One day I took the first step and haven't turned back to complacency in that area of my life. My mind, my thoughts needed to change in order for me to take my first step. When we change our minds, there's nothing they cannot do. I know that losing weight takes more than just changing your thoughts. It is a mindful effort and it takes strategy to accomplish that goal but it all starts in a mind that things the right thoughts. Your words, acts, habits and character will reflect that change which will lead you to a great destiny.
QUESTION • How healthy is your thought life? Are there any thoughts you can change in order to increase the quality of your life?
What is this?
