To achieve success in life, it is very important to be aware of the fact that your thoughts shape your reality. Thoughts are very powerful creative forces, which you can use to create the successful life that you desire.
However, failure by anyone to understand how much they can influence life, and allow their minds to be ruled by negative thoughts will definitely lead to a failed life.
The principle of Thoughts and Reality is a simple principle of life, which can bring anyone who uses it positively the good things of life, and enable them to experience success, happiness, and fulfillment; while wrongly used will result in the opposite life.
It is to fill your heart with thoughts of the good things you desire to achieve or possess, and think of yourself already having them and using them for the general good of humanity. If you think of these things frequently each day, gradually, in the course of time you will find yourself possessing them.
Whatever you think strongly of having, so much that it is always on your mind day and night, you will surely get to have it â€“ that is the law!
When I first got to know of this lifeâ€™s principle several years ago, and began to examine my thoughts and my successes, I was stunned to note that there was nothing I had achieved or possessed that I hadnâ€™t thought intensely of having before.
Let me give you just one example, because there are lots that I discovered as I examined my life.
In my early years of using the Internet, one of the things I really wanted to know was how websites were created. I was always astonished when I visited a good website and saw the graphics and the various functionality operating automatically.
I deeply desired to know this, but I couldnâ€™t afford the training. I only had a part time job and with what I was earning, I would have to put all of it aside for a year to be able to take the training, and that I couldnâ€™t endure.
I thought of who I knew that I could meet to give me at least an idea of what website designing is all about, but there was known. However, my desire to know it did not waver.
Then about a year later, I got a job with an NGO as a writer for its magazine publishing arm. Not quite long, I was asked to include updating certain aspects of the NGOâ€™s website. To enable me to do this job, the organization had to sponsor me to attend a website design training seminar â€“ something I had so much desired earlier.
If you take a minute or two to think about your life you will definitely see that there is nothing you have now that wasnâ€™t just a thought sometime ago. Think about it, that car, that house, and that job.
Did you not first thought about them, imagining how they would enhance your life? Of course, you had the image of that car in your mind for days, weeks, months, or even years before you eventually possessed it materially.
That is how it is for everything that is ever created or brought into reality, and for every living soul on earth who ever possesses. Everything in life, good or evil must emanate from thoughts.
From your thoughts come success and wealth. There is no way you can ever be successful in what you do, or be in possession of great wealth without having the thought impressed indelibly on your mind, and becoming inseparable from you.
As you fix your thoughts on whatever that you so desire, you would have set up the process that would convey them to you, and as you continually think and imagine yourself in sound health, success and wealth; and as you believe this, you will be gradually brought to live in them.
In the passage of time, you will find yourself in possession of information, employment, in the circle of people, etc., who will unfold the opportunity for you to possess them. In fact, you will come into the right place at the right time to walk into that which your heart so longeth after.
Like I said before, I have lots of personal experiences since I began to seriously observe my thoughts, and I believe you would too if you examine yours. And I ask you to begin to use your thoughts to create the successful person that you desire to be.
Those things that you so desire will Surely come to you! The Principle of Thoughts and Reality is infallible and has been proven again and again, and will still work for you or anyone, irrespective of time and place on the earth.
Thought is supreme. Your thoughts build your circumstances. Think success, think love, think wealth, think health, and so you will become! â€œFor as he thinketh in his heart, so is heâ€¦â€ â€“ Prov. 23 vs 7
As potent as thoughts are, do not waste a minute filling your mind with negative ideas and information. Do not think of yourself as failure, poor, sickly, foolish, stupid, never-do-well, alcoholic, drug addict, fearful, unhappy, hateful, worrisome, etc.
These are negative thoughts and will conform you to them. They will become your reality. Rather, see yourself as being successful, intelligent, rich, happy, loving, healthy, brave, kind-hearted, etc., which you actually are! Yes, You deserve to be!
â€œFinally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.â€ [phi 4 vs 8, emphasis mine]

Here is a quote I love and I know it will inspire you to success too.
Whenever you go out-of-doors, draw the chin in, carry the crown of the head high, and fill both lungs to the utmost; drink in the sunshine; greet your friends with a smile, and put soul in every handclasp. Do not fear being misunderstood and do not waste a minute thinking about your enemies. Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like to do; and then, without veering off direction, you will move straight to the goal.
Keep your mind on the great and splendid things you would like to do, and then, as the days go gliding away, you will find yourself unconsciously seizing upon the opportunities that are required for the fulfillment of your desire, just as the coral insect takes from the running tide the elements it needs.
Picture in your mind the able, earnest, useful person you desire to be, and this thought you hold is hourly transforming you into that particular individualâ€¦Thought is supreme. Preserve a right mental attitude – the attitude of courage, frankness, and good cheer. To think rightly is to create. All things come through desire and every sincere prayer is answered. We become like that on which our hearts are fixed. Carry your chin in and the crown of your head high. We are gods in the chrysalis.
– Elbert Hubbard
Insightful article Innocent. It is indeed true that in life, whatever we desire , if we put our mind to it, that goal will surely come to pass. As Napoleon Hill said ‘The world has the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going’, indeed this is manifested in this article.
