What you think that you become

What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine you create – Buddha

We often get to hear – You are the maker of yourself. What you think that you become. I struggled a lot to understand this, but this journey helped me to discover the truth and deep learning about myself.

What you think, you are, is a product of adding all your thoughts together. Whatever you store in your mind and heart, reflects your true being, your inner world, then it begins to reflect in the form of your circumstances.

You can either make or break yourself. You can develop the weapons used to demolish your own self or you can create the instruments to construct yourself a place of joy, peace, and strength. 

When you make the decision to choose a path of positive thinking, you will reach awareness on the true excellence within yourself in a powerful and divine way, but when you follow the path of negative thinking, you drag yourself deeper and down to a very low level, where you are filled with pain, grief and complaints. 

How do Your Thoughts Affect Your Environment?

Conditions don’t make an individual; it just reflects what the person is. Your current circumstance of happiness and joy can’t exist without you raising your mindfulness and interest consistently for your own improvement. 

The mix of your state of thought with your focus on your positives and negatives in life decides the external conditions of yourself and your environment.  

Each idea you permit to sink into your mind and plant itself there like a seed, will bloom and develop either in a good fruit or a bad fruit. Positive thoughts would blossom in a good fruit , while negative thoughts produce bad fruit.

We all are responsible for what we create. Our inner world of thoughts create our environment on the outside. The energy that makes us is inside ourselves. We are the reason for our own conditions. Despite the fact that we mean for incredible and great outcomes in the end we consistently end or baffle our accomplishments by developing musings and wants that are not in concordance with our final products. 

Your perspective can detain you or can lead you into opportunity, freeing you from old self limiting convictions. It isn’t so much what you wish or appeal to God for, however what you properly acquire. Your prayers are heard and replied in accordance to their congruence with your thinking.

The energy inside you pulls in whatever your psyche develops; if it’s affection you will draw in adoration, if it’s dread you will pull in dread. It can rise and arrive at levels of limitless potential and wonderful goals or tumble to a degree of self-mistrust, self-harm, and blurring dreams.

As you take a stab at greatness you will discover an incredible law of the universe that is simple and can’t give good for bad or bad for good. Once you know about this information, you will presently look to your past to all your sufferings and  realize how you created it all. You understand that your life has been and was consistently just, and that all your previous encounters and conditions whether positive or negative were uniformly given because of your growing yet lacking being.

What you think that you become can be better understood with an example

Example on what you think that you become:

When you plant a tree you realize that the tree develops from a seed, without the seed there would be no tree. Similarly, your thoughts would not grow or develop without the seed .In more straightforward terms, without the seed the thoughts couldn’t exist. Whatever you sow, you reap! Your thoughts are seeds, and the harvest you reap will depend on the seeds you plant.

You can choose what your seed is made out of, thoughts with negativity that don’t help you or positive thoughts that help you grow and develop.. 

Whatever feelings of bliss or torment you have inside you, those are the fruits. You can collect great fruit or terrible fruit relying upon how you decide to develop it. 

Similarly , if  you have negative thoughts in your brain, agony will follow you wherever you go. But if you continue with positive thinking, satisfaction and delight will follow you like your own shadow. 

Development is by law our nature; An illuminated individual isn’t made by some coincidence but is made by the results of accomplishing the essential information and consistent positive thinking, the outcome of this is mindfulness and illumination.

Negative thoughts and persistent negative thinking  bring up something negative into your life. However, if you persist in thinking negative thoughts over a period of time, they will appear in your life. So, decide right now that you are going to have only good thoughts to attract happiness and success in life.

You are the most powerful magnet in the Universe! You contain a magnetic power within you that is more powerful than anything in this world, and this unfathomable magnetic power is emitted through your thoughts – JOHN ASSARAF

Your thoughts become the things in your life. Your thoughts become things! If you can think about what you want in your mind, and make that your dominant thought, you will bring it into your life. 

The only reason why people do not have what they want is because they are thinking more about what they don’t want than what they do want. Listen to your thoughts, and listen to the words you are saying. 

Your life is in your hands.  Every single circumstance of your life can change! No matter where you are now, no matter what has happened in your life, you can begin to consciously choose your thoughts, and you can change your life. 


You will always remain stuck to where you are as long as you believe the causes to be from external conditions.

But the moment you realize that you can take charge of the soil in your garden and can choose the kinds of seeds to plant in it, you will grow and become your own master using the mind you were given.

Your circumstances and results will always be in reflection to your thoughts. As you practice self-control and strive to gain knowledge of self awareness you will soon realize that whatever thoughts flow through you will determine your outcome.
