Reasons Why You Are What You Think About

You may have heard the saying “you are what you eat”, meaning if you eat lean healthy foods you’ll be lean and healthy, or if you eat fat-laden foods you’ll be fat. Well, the same principle applies to your thoughts. If you regularly think positive thoughts of happiness and abundance, you’ll experience a life filled with happiness and abundance. The same thing goes for those who think negative thoughts of lack and despair. They’ll subsequently create an unhappy life for themselves. It sounds too simple to be true but it most definitely is.



This is not new information I’ve just recently discovered. We live in a thought-based universe and civilizations have created their reality based on their thoughts since the beginning of time. Albert Einstein knew this and wrote extensively on the topic.

Everything in the universe travels in circles, from the electrons spinning around the nucleus of an atom to a human thought. Every thought you think, whether you’re aware of it or not, is sent as a pulse or vibration out into the universe gaining energy and returning to you.

If you are generally a happy and positive person, your own personal vibration level will be relatively high and you’ll naturally emit positive thoughts or vibrations out into the universe and they’ll return to you more positive and happy experiences.


When you get caught in the rut of thinking negatively or spending a lot of time thinking about your problems, you’re effectively creating more of the same. Although it may seem necessary to think about your problems in order to solve them, this is not the case.

The more you think about your problems, the more problems you create in your life. Therefore, the best solution to overcoming your problems is to give them no thought at all. To overcome your problems in the shortest possible time, your best plan of attack will be to focus your thoughts on exactly the life you want.

This can be difficult for some people who’ve been caught up in a negative mindset for some time. I suggest you write down the things you like in your life.


Here are some examples. If you currently have no partner and this makes you feel miserable, write down on paper the traits of your ideal partner. This doesn’t need to be too specific. Just describe some general traits you prefer 2 or 3 times a day for about 10 minutes.

Spend some time thinking about being with that ideal partner. It’s not necessary to have a clear picture in your mind of what they look like. It’s more about concentrating on your happy feeling when you’re with this ideal person. The more positive and happy your feelings are, the quicker you’ll see results.


The same goes for anyone who’s bothered by lack of money. As difficult as it may be to not think about your financial problems, understand that by the universal laws that govern the entire universe, it’s not possible to solve your problems by worrying about them.

The law of attraction states that what you think about will be attracted to you. This goes for everything you think about whether it be good or bad. If you’re deep in debt, you need to stop thinking about it. Thinking about how you can fix it will not solve the problem.

You need to refocus your thoughts on exactly the opposite and really feel what it’ll be like to be prosperous. Do this 2-3 times a day for about 10 minutes when you get a chance to relax. Perhaps before and after work and in your lunch break in a quiet place if possible.

When you spend some quiet time each day deliberately not thinking about your problems and instead focusing your thoughts, with as much good feeling as possible, on what it is you want or will make you happy, you begin to break the constant cycle of sending negative thoughts out into the universe and returning with more negative experiences in your life.

These short 10-minute bursts of positive energy bring back to you new positive ideas and opportunities at a later date for you to act on and help you improve the circumstances of your life.


So don’t worry that these short periods of positive thinking will have no bearing on your life when you seem entrenched in worrying most of the time. I’ve been there, worrying about my problems seemingly all the time. But it’s facing the problems that led me to look for a way out and that put me on the spiritual path that led me out of the darkness and into the light.

These short periods of positive thinking and creative visualization caused some positive energy to be sent back to me. As I noticed the opportunities arise, I took action and my life started to improve in no time.

At first, it seemed like just a coincidence when I started to spend time feeling good. Then, I noticed some constructive opportunities come my way. There are no coincidences in life, there’s only what you make yourself. You create your own opportunities from your habitual thinking and those thoughts create your reality.

In essence, you can have the life you want by just simply thinking about it. The key is to monitor your thoughts and catch yourself when you begin to think negatively. Replace those thoughts with positive thoughts. Then you can confidently expect to see the rewards from your happy thinking as they manifest in your happy life.

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
