Becoming The Change: Our Greatest Discovery

“The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. As you think, you shall be.”

-William James

We have a certain skillset and power that many of us may or may not realize. Philosopher William James points this out in today’s quote and even calls it the greatest discovery of our generation. And that discovery is that we have the choice change the course of our lives by altering our mindset. What we think is what becomes our reality. Our thoughts become our actions. Our actions become our legacy. We can never go back in time to alter the past of any missteps we have may have made along the way. However, we can alter our thinking in the here and now and possibly undo what we may have done wrong and help to build a better tomorrow. If we let what we value and hold dear to our hearts be our guide we can turn our dreams into reality.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
