Motivational Mondays

“Be conscious of your thoughts; they become your words.
Contemplate your words; they become your actions.
Take care of your actions; they become your habits.
Guard your habits, for they become your character.
Be aware of your character; it becomes your destiny.” – Frank Outlaw

That is a great quote! Very, very true.

Thanks for posting this, it reminds me of a Bible passage we studied in our Monday Precept class:

Philippians 4:4-9

4-Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5-Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7-And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8-Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9-Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Thanks Laura! The quote I posted is full of warnings, but this scripture actually gives you the practical instruction on what to do instead, what to think about instead, etc. Perfect! It's definitely one I need to commit to memory.
