Your Words Become Your Actions

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; it becomes your destiny. - Lao Tze

Keeping a positive attitude has a "snowball effect" on our lives.  If we have a positive attitude, it grows larger and larger, like a snowball pummeling  down a mountain. Our attitudes have a greater impact on our lives than we realize. As Lao Tze said, your thoughts eventually become your destiny. Even in tough times, we have to "keep on, keeping on" and realize that situations are temporary, and better days are ahead. Otherwise, you will end up under the avalanche, where it's nearly impossible to escape.
