Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become your characters. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny. You are what you think.
Life is what you make of it, and if you aren't willing to make it what you want it to be, it won't be much of anything. Though it is very hard to make your life a living paradise, it is something that you can expect, if you know in your heart that you are willing to work hard for that goal.
