"the people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can't find them, make them. well it's pretty apparent isn't it? we become what we think about. it stands to reason that a person who's thinking about a definite and worthwhile goal, is going to reach it because that's what he's thinking about, and we become what we think about. conversely, the man who has no goal, who doesn't know where he's going, and his thoughts must therefore be thoughts of confusion, of anxiety, of fear and worry, becomes what he thinks about. his life becomes one of frustration, fear, anxiety, and worry... and if he thinks about nothing, he becomes nothing."
