Quotes that Inspire – Part One

I am a reader. Quotes have a sweet spot in my heart. I love to read quotes.

People who coined something witty or wise, or both, inspire me with their words.

This series features quotes that affect me. Inspire change or give hope or just impart wisdom. Some just make me laugh!

Today’s wisdom:

Your beliefs become your thoughts,

Your thoughts become your words,

Your words become your actions,

Your actions become your habits,

Your habits become your values,

Your values become your destiny.

Mahatma Gandhi

My take away from this:

Our thoughts and beliefs run our lives! This quote makes me realize that most of my anxieties and problems start in my head.

I need to think about what I think about.

And is what I believe serving me? If not, maybe I could change them…



  1. “I need to think about what I think about.” I love this. I often find myself both fascinated and frustrated at my brains ability to build and grow a thought or feeling. It’s such a waste when the thought is negative and I find myself completely caught up in creation of a “what if” scenario. If I catch myself doing it, I’ve started saying out loud to myself, “Stop, no more inventing!” as a way to break the cycle.

    1. These “what-ifs” most likely never happen anyway. I can relate to thinking the worst and, like you, am trying to catch and stop my negative thoughts. Thanks for commenting!
