"What you think about and what you thank about is what you will bring about."
This fun little rhyme is a lot to digest, but I’ll do my best to break it down for you. “What you think about and what you thank about is what you will bring about.” Big picture, this quote encapsulates the essence of having a positive mindset, and shows us how we are actively creating our lives by way of the things we attract through our mentality and actions. More specifically, a positive life is created by what we think and what we thank.
As for what we think, we all know that our thoughts are extremely influential and truly mold the way that we see the world. When we control our thoughts to perceive things a certain way, they become a certain way. Wayne Dyer put it best - “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. This is centered around having the choice to pick our thoughts.
Then for what we thank, gratitude is an incredibly powerful force. By putting your attention into things that you are grateful for, and seeing the best of every situation, you attract more good things into your life. This reminds me of the quote “What you appreciate appreciates”, meaning that what you are grateful for becomes more abundant and accessible.
So let’s tie it all back together and see if it makes more sense now - “What you think about and what you thank about is what you will bring about.” If you want anything to change in your life it needs to start with you. Your choices, your actions, and your ways of being. The same goes for living a more positive and enriching life. Be the epicenter of your own positivity and it will return tremendously.
