Mind over matters

Your mindset plays a key role in your perceptions, beliefs, expectations and actions. Negative thoughts tend to produce negative actions, and positive thoughts tend to produce actions. For instance, If you think that your DNA alone determines your health status, then you are not likely to be concerned about environmental factors or engage in lifestyle habits to strengthen your health. On the the other hand, If you think that exercise will make you healthier, increase your energy levels and help you to better cope with stress, then you are much more likely to invest the time and effort necessary to experience its benefits.  

Around 2000 years ago a man name Paul wrote a letter from prison to encourage people who were experiencing some tough times. He drew strength from a deep sense of purpose and a desire to help others experience the same.  He challenged others to think quality thoughts “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
