Everything in Life Can Be a Construct of Thoughts

When I say thought is everything I mean that literally. Everything in your life is a construct of your thoughts. According to Albert Einstein and other brilliant scientists like David Bohm, it seems reality is nothing more than the projection of thought.



Everything in life that we perceive with our 5 senses comes firstly from our habitual thinking. The fact that we all see the same things when we’re in a group of people means that collectively our thoughts work together.

This togetherness of perceiving the same things makes sense since we know the entire universe is made up of energy vibrating at different rates. Everything in the universe is connected on some level, even if it may not seem to be that way.


Although we may view the same scenery or landscape when we’re standing in a group, when we walk away from each other we go back into our own seemingly separate little world. Some of us live in the lap of luxury, while some in total poverty. Some of us are happy with ourselves and our lives, while some are dreadfully unhappy and can’t see a way out their problems.


If thought is everything, we’re able to change virtually every aspect of our life by simply changing our habitual thoughts. Although this is a difficult concept to prove scientifically, you only have to look at your own life and assess the ups and downs you’ve gone through to see that this concept seems valid.

I can only speak for myself but, when I look back on my own life, I can clearly see how when I’m thinking positively and optimistically I’ve experienced success on so many levels and have felt content during those periods. At times when life hasn’t gone so well, it’s my thoughts that let me down, not bad luck or misfortune.


I’ve made a few big changes in my life recently and been apprehensive about moving ahead with some of these changes. But in the back of my mind, I was so sure that they’d work out. I just knew I had to go ahead with my plans. The results of my big changes have been significantly more successful than I could’ve ever imagined, and I put this success down to my habitual thoughts.

I actually began making these big changes in my life a long time ago when I started thinking about the prospect of heading in a new direction. The right steps that I must take were revealed to me during my thinking process. It’s kind of a difficult concept to explain. But in a nutshell, I simply started thinking about a new life direction and just let my subconscious mind wander over a number of goals I wanted to achieve. The rest is history.

Given enough time and by focusing your thoughts on your goals often, the process of getting what you want is inevitable. I have no doubt about it.


I enjoy reading biographies. Since almost all biographies are written about successful people, I guess a biography written about someone unsuccessful will not work well. There seems to be a common theme with all successful people. They thought about being a success in a certain area of their life long before they became one.

One other very fascinating aspect of the lives of many successful people was the fact that in other areas of their lives, these super successful people were quite unsuccessful. Perhaps they’re successful in their primary field but many suffered failures in their relationships, financially and in other important areas of life. Many of these people claim the same story and that is they never gave much thought to success in other areas of their life other than their primary goal.

If you believe in the concept that thought is everything, you can probably make incredible changes in your life that lead to greater happiness and success. If this concept seems like fiction, I guess you just have to leave your life to the winds of fate. But for me, I like the idea that my thoughts control the outcome of my life. I feel I’ve seen enough evidence over the course of my life to know deep inside that thought is everything.

When you put together the sum total of my 30 years of bodybuilding training, the contests, the vast array of diets I have experimented (tortured) myself with as well as the experiences I have been through with various training partners in the gyms I have trained in all over the world, it’s been a great ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do lots of personal training for private clients alongside my day job. For a few years during my 30’s, I moved to Asia and worked as the Fitness Manager and head personal trainer at one of Thailand’s leading gyms in Bangkok. Learn More
