We Become What We Think About Most of the Time

“We become what we think about most of the time, and that’s the strangest secret.” ~ Earl Nightingale


We become what we think about most of the time. What a great concept. When we look at those who have become successful in life, in any area; what is it they think about most of the time? They think about whatever it is they are working to be successful at.


Michael Jordan

Take for example, Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan became successful at basketball because basketball was on his mind most of the time. You might say he eat, drank and slept basketball. He practiced basketball all day long. He thought about basketball moves. He thought about ways to improve his dribble; ways to improve his free throws; ways to improve his long shots, etc. He focused his life on Basketball. And he became extremely successful in Basketball.


Business Success

It’s the same in any area one wants to become successful at. You need to focus your attention and energies on that area. By keeping your mind on online business success, you will notice helpful information on improving an area of online marketing, etc. By keeping our mind on being a successful social media marketer, we become a successful social media marketer. We notice articles etc. that will help us in our business. We spend our time working on online business items to improve our success. We work to improve our skills in writing, video, social media, etc. We work to become better in whatever it takes to become successful in online marketing.


Review Your Written Goals

Part of thinking about our area of success most of the time is having written goals and reviewing those goals on a regular basis. By reviewing your goals every morning and every evening, you help keep your mind on those goals throughout the day. The more you keep your mind on the goals, the more your mind will naturally work out ways to succeed.

One technique successful people use is to review their list of to-do items each night before going to bed. Often times, by reviewing them before going to bed, your mind will subconsciously work out how to achieve those items while you’re sleeping.


A Simple, yet Powerful Key to Success!

We become what we think about most of the time.

The key is to focus your mind on what you want to achieve and think about that most of the time. This seems so simple, yet it’s so very powerful. If it’s so simple and so powerful, why don’t more people use this technique? Good question.

It’s simple and powerful, yet it does take work. We tend to want to take the easy route. We want to come home, drink beer and watch TV, right? Well, doing that, or some other waste of time and mind focus will not bring you closer to success.

It takes effort and focus to keep your mind on your goals most of the time. Yet it’s so simple and powerful if we do it. And it will bring you closer to the success you are looking for.


So remember the advice given by Earl Nightingale:
