WATCH our Words, Actions, Thoughts, Character, and Habits.
We recently watched a portion of the movie "The Iron Lady" (2011), about the late Lady Margret Thatcher. In it, a doctor asks how she feels, and Lady Thatcher replies "Why is everyone so concerned with how we feel these days? We should be concerned with what we are thinking. Why not ask about our thoughts?" She then goes on to tell him by using the following, most excellent quote, as delivered exquisitely by the actress Meryl Streep:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
This quote is attributed to Mr. Frank Outlaw, Late President of the Bi-Lo Grocery Store chain. It dates back in other forms to the turn of the century, and (W)ords (A)ctions (T)houghts (C)haracter (H)abits form the word *watch*.
We should strive to improve ourselves, starting with our thoughts.
