by Lao Tzu, thoughts will lead you to your destiny


good morning.

my friends and followers this is iron wil, and I’m back with another nugget. So, i spent the last couple weeks thinking about what I wanted to say.

and well, what I found is attributed to Lau Tzo; I also know that there’s a European philosopher that has said the same thing, and so I don’t know if they just translated it. I don’t know what the deal is, anyway.

it’s the concept that’s most important to me. “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.”

And the reason that that is so important to me on a personal level is because I’ve seen it played out in the lives of myself and other people and it really boils down to starting with what Stephen Covey says, “Start with Why”. Nope, Stephen Covey, didn’t say that he said; “Begin with the end in mind”. Simon Sinek said, “Start with Why”.

So, what I want to cover is, begin with the end in mind. Who do you want to be? What do you want your life to be like? What things do you want to see come about?

What is the vision of the world that you want to create and then start working on how to make that a reality. start working on yourself, because ultimately that is how we influence others. it is by our own example that we set, by the example that was set, and the love and the light, that we share with other people.

So, what do you think about? What do you say? What do you do? What are the habits that you’ve created because of that?

So, there are several great books out there, one book that I would recommend that goes along with this is “Atomic Habits”. The other book that I recommend, the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.

Which was mentioned in the last Newsletter.

Another book that you can look at is “Launching a Leadership Revolution”. And that whole idea is growing more leaders.

Alright. If you get value from this video, please like and share it. If you are enjoying the newsletter, make share that with someone else. Also. my friends, go and make it a great day. Go and make it a great year.
