What we dwell upon is who we become. – Oprah Winfrey
Bingo, as far as I am concerned. So, here’s what we need to do.
Decide what we want to be/become.
Create a blog.
Dwell upon what we want to become on the blog. Everyday. Well, at least every 2-3 days.
Let’s say, for example, that you want to become a great cook.
Talk about cooking on your blog, cook up recipes, link to recipes, provide information about dishes, nutrition facts, what’s good to eat and bad to eat and connect with others’ thoughts on cooking, read everything possible about cooking and post about what you read, think of innovative dishes and find out what others think….blah blah blah……..…..and you are sure to see yourself shaping into a wonderful cook. Just what you intended to become. There’s no doubt about it.
Yes, I heard you. What about the real cooking? Jack Addington says “Man can do whatever he is able to conceive in his mind, receive in his consciousness, expect with assurance, and accept in actual experience”. Our mind rules our body. What our mind talks about, our body will follow. Our mind is the master and our body its servant. So, we’ll find ourselves looking for opportunities to practice what we preach (on the blog) and the other way round. There’s no doubt about this too.
I am thoroughly convinced that blogging is a great way to dwell upon something. So, given that we become what we dwell upon, it is crystal clear that blogging is a great way to get there. For sure.
Do we need any more reasons to blog? :) Let’s go ahead and discover our true potential!
