"A person's way of doing things is the direct result of the way they think about things."
Before we perform an act, can we act upon it without thinking about it? In a way we can, but in reality, every action comes from an impulse of thought, whether you are conscious of it, or it is subconsciously habitual. If we are unaware of an action that we perform, our subconscious thinking manifests the act according to our habitual way of thinking.
This action also includes how we react emotionally to certain situations and things that people say to us. The way we react is according to our mindset. If our mindset is negative and pessimistic, we may misconstrue situations or what is said to us as being a ridicule, something that is stopping us in our path, or take criticism as an insult or someone talking down to us. This type of mind set causes most failure in peoples' lives, whether it be personal, family, and(or) business.
On the other side, if we have a positive mind state, that may be determined for success, and has an optimistic perception, than it looks at situations as opportunities to grow, lessons to learn, and experiences to grow from. When they take in people's speech, the negative perception that can be taking from a tone or word recognition is the last process in their way of thinking. They take criticism constructively, seeing ways to improve or change and steps they may need to take to achieve it. This is a powerful mindset.
But we have to know that these two totally opposite mindsets, are not innate, but acquired,and can be learned in order to become our characters. Just like any other act, the more it is practiced the better you become at it, until it becomes natural to you.
So if you have this negative, failing mindset, then your actions will play it out in how it produces. You will always be skeptical, doubtful, and unsure about things. And this will manifest in your actions, by signs of procrastination, disorganization, over-cautiousness, and producing half-assed, plain and simple. These actions will sabotage you from gaining any success, or short-lived success.
Where on the other side, the positive, successful mindset, will be driven to achieve it's success at any costs. It looks at a negative situation as a bump to be walked over. This person sees opportunities and makes ways to achieve it, without letting anything stand in their way. Because of their mindset and the way they think every action from their thoughts will be manifested by their determination, perseverance, the steps they take to reach their goal, and even in their speech.
