The Power Of Your Thoughts: Explained [Thoughts Become Things!]

Have you ever heard of the statement, “Everything starts with a thought” or “Thoughts become things” ? What is meant by that statement and how exactly does it work? Thoughts are powerful! Here you can read more about the principle of: ‘Thoughts become reality’. Read along for explanations and quotes on this matter…

Everything starts with a thought …

What is the effect of thoughts? How important are they? Let’s start with the examples in the video below…

You may already be starting to get a sense of the effect your thoughts can have on your life. Could you also ‘create’ with your thoughts? Wouldn’t the statement “Thoughts become reality” be as weird as you might think?

Everything starts with a thought – and thoughts are turned into plans – and plans into reality.
– Marshall Sylver

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
– Albert Einstein

The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.
– Bob Ross

Everything we are is the result of our thoughts. What we think we become.
– Buddha

You can direct your thoughts to create with your thoughts – This is how you do it …

Your thoughts are also energy (thinking makes you very hungry and tired). That is good, because you can create with energy. But what is meant by ‘creating’? Simple: it can be anything you want. 10,000 euros, a job, a partner, a dream …

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think of a negative thought again ….
– Peace Pilgrim

How do you then direct your thoughts so that you use your thoughts to your advantage? Two of my favorite ways are:

  • See your goal before you. Make a picture of what it looks like if you have already achieved it. This is a visual thought. Nice huh! Also feel the feelings associated with the goal.
  • Just say out loud to a trusted group of people that you are going to do it and achieve your goal. This is an auditory thought.

How do you really apply the power of thoughts? The Law of Attraction!

law of attraction the power of thoughts

In the previous section you learned that you can use your thoughts by envisioning your desired outcome. So visualize vividly! Thoughts really have an effect. Watch…

  1. Extend your arm back as far as possible by twisting your torso back. How far can you get?
  2. Now visualize getting even further than the first time.
  3. Extend your arm back as far as possible. How much further can you get now?

Visualizing this is part of ‘the law of attraction’. If you want to learn this in more detail, read this in-depth article on applying the law of attraction.

If you think you are losing, then you are lost.

If you think you are defeated, then you are defeated.

If you think you don’t dare, you don’t.

If you think you can’t, you almost  certainly won’t win.

– Napoleon Hill, uit Think And Grow Rich

Faith is …

The eternal elixir that gives our thoughts life and energy.

The starting point of all wealth

The basis of all the wonders and mysteries that science cannot explain.

The antidote to failure

The energy that connects you directly with infinite intelligence, if you combine it with a powerful desire.

The energy that converts thought vibrations into spiritual signals.

The only way the cosmic power of infinite intelligence can be received and used.

– Napoleon Hill, uit Think And Grow Rich

Then how does the law of attraction work?

the power of your thoughts

The law of attraction says: we give you what you think about, what you visualize or what you focus on. It’s all around you. You just have to open your eyes and look. You just have to think about it and it becomes reality.

Related to this is the law of selective perception.  You will always find evidence for what you choose to believe. Choose to believe in Love, and the evidence for Love will appear.

If you say: ‘This does not work …’ Then the universe also says: ‘Your wish is my command …’

If you complain about what you don’t want, you don’t actually push it away, but you put it on more often. Whoever talks about illness the most has it. Whoever talks about happiness the most has it.

Whether you think you can or not, you are right in either case.
– Henry Ford

If you believe that you can do anything, you will be inclined to tackle and solve obstacles in everything you encounter in the world. This is also reflected in Bateson’s model of logical levels : the higher levels (beliefs) influence the lower levels (capacities, behavior and environment).

Because as a person thinks, so is he.
–Proverbs 23: 7

So … think about what you want. Picture it with irresistible desire, passion and other emotions. Because thoughts become things … What are you thinking?

You can live up to anything you can imagine.
– Napoleon Hill

The only limitation of the mind is the limitation it imposes on itself.
– Napoleon Hill
