For God’s sake with William Brown: Thoughts Become Things


Thoughts become things. Or, maybe a better way to say that your thoughts “are” things. They take up space. Sure, they take up space in your mind, but they also take up real space in the world. They exist in the physical world. Let me explain: what you think about has real implications for you and the people around you. Your thoughts matter. Or, maybe a better way to put it would be to say that your thoughts “are” matter in that they have mass.

“Everything is created twice, first mentally, then physically. The key to creativity is to start with the end in mind, with a vision and a plan for the desired outcome, ”said Stephen Covey, author of“ The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People ”.

“I’ve noticed that worrying is like praying for something you don’t want to happen.” -Robert Downey Jr., actor

Take a chair, for example. Consider specifically the chair you are sitting on right now. Chairs don’t appear out of nowhere. In order for the chair you are sitting on to exist, someone first had to dream about it, imagine it, think about it, trust that the design was solid in their mind. Then the chair had a chance to be created.

Now, most of us don’t create chairs. But we create, in part, the world around us all the time with our thoughts.

Your thoughts are constantly pulling and pushing your reality towards or away from you. Imagine your thoughts as magnets. And just like magnets, your thoughts have a positive and a negative end. If you come from a place of fear, you might perceive a scary world. If you come from a place of love, you might find a little more compassion and care in your daily interactions.

Actor Robert Downey Jr. said, “I’ve noticed that worrying is like praying for something you don’t want to happen.” It makes sense. Think about it. When you worry, you are concerned, almost obsessively, about something that has not yet happened. Do you think that worrying brings what you fear closer to you or pushes it further?

If you listen to your heart and give it an audience, that voice will become clearer until only positive energy is welcomed. Author Jen Sincero said, “Your heart is the most powerful muscle in your body. Do what he says. Trust that what you are looking for is looking for you because thoughts become things.
