We are a product of our thoughts: it all starts in our heads
In 1903 James Allen put pen to paper to write about a concept that we could sum up today in two words: positive thinking. If we accept Allen’s idea completely, it means that we accept that our current lives are the result of everything we have thought until now, of everything our minds allowed in. If we are happy and fulfilled, it is because we have had joyful thoughts, fulfilment and visions and ideas that we have followed with courage.
By the same token, if we are sad and unsatisfied, we most certainly have entertained thoughts of sadness and dissatisfaction; all of our unhappiness first began in our heads and then we were good at bringing it to life. By accepting this point of view, we become responsible for our lives and the thoughts which we entertain.
