Who am I?

I would like to share a piece written by Bob Conklin, found in "The Difference Maker" by John C. Maxwell

I can make you rise or fall. I can work for you or against you.
I can make you a success or failure.
I can control the way you feel and the way you act.
I can make you laugh ... work... love... I can make your heart sing with joy... excitement... elation...

Or I can make you wretched... dejected... morbid...I can make you sick... listless...

I can be as a shackle... heavy... attached... burdensome…
Or I can be the Prism's hue... dancing...bright... fleeting… lost forever unless captured by pen and purpose.
I can be nurtured and grown to be great and beautiful... seen by the eyes of others through action in you.
I can never be removed.... only replaced.

Who am I?
Why not know me better?

Truly,your thoughts will be lost forever unless captured by pen or purpose! Thoughts must be written down or lived. Only then will they become building blocks of your life. Know I can relate to the old proverb of sowing a thought results in developing a habit. Habits shape our character which ultimately leads to creating our own destiny.

When what we think has a profound effect on our behavior, then why not know a thought better
