Our MIND is everything. We are what we think. Our present thoughts determine our future just as our previous thoughts are the reason we are who and where we are today.
We think in pictures. When we use our imagination, we create pictures and it is up to us to create powerful visions about the future we want. We attract what we think and feel. If we think positive thoughts and feelings, that is what we will attract. And of course, the opposite is also true.
These are universal principles which date back thousands of years. Lord Buddha has expressed these thoughts beautifully.
