Yes.. but "Why" do thoughts become things?

Over the last decade, I've read several books on the topics of mindfulness, thought, success, business, motivation and self-empowerment.  I've been offered a similar message in each reading, a message that rings loud and clear from the time I raise my head from the pillow in the morning until the time I lay back down to bed at night.  That message is, ultimately, that 'You Become What You Think About'. In Earl Nightingale's 'Strangest Secret', these exact words ring true. Until recently, I was aware of this, but didn't truly understand how this occurred. Having enjoyed the trials and tribulations of an intense curriculum in physical therapy, and having worked with several amazing colleagues and practice owners throughout my career who pushed me to be better in all aspects of my profession, I've been trained, consistently, to truly understand why things occur.. why I'm performing a particular treatment technique.. why certain patients improve more rapidly than others.. why some days seem awesome and others seem to be full of challenges.

Well, I mentioned that I was 'aware' of the notion that Thoughts Become Things and You Become What You Think About, but I haven't truly understood why.. until now.

My Zen
Hey out there readers!  Usually it's Chad who writes the blogs.  I decided to write my own entry today.  I thought I would introduce myself a little bit more than on the video.  I am a mom of three - sometimes 4 when Chad the Dad is being a goofball  ; ).  I work part time as a Unit Secretary at UMASS.  I love going to the gym (our local YMCA).  I really like reading.  I just started to like going to the movies (usually I like to watch them in my living room – but something about a girls night out makes it more fun).  I love being with my friends – especially when our families can all be together.  My kids look forward to being with their friends and my hubby and I look forward to playing games with the other moms and dads.   And my new found passion is health and wellness.  Chad has been into it since we met.  I was into Oreo’s, chocolate chip pancakes, Kraft Cheese and Macaroni and anything else like that.  Over the past 3 years or so, I have become more open minded and learned a lot.  Since doing my last cleanse I have had way more energy, been more focused, released pounds, slept better,  built lean muscle and rid my body of toxins.  Imagine having a hangover every day?  I suppose some people do feel this way.  But imagine feeling hungover and then one day not feeling that way?  This is the best comparison I can come up with since before starting my last cleanse.  After the cleanse, I pretty much continued the same nutritional plan as while on the cleanse.  While on it I was really strict about only putting food into my body that served a nutritional purpose.   Once in a while now, I eat something that really serves no nutritional purpose and I either immediately feel it in my body or wake up the next day feeling it.  This is where I get the hangover comparison.  Now I have lived a long time eating Yodels, crackers with cream cheese, not taking vitamins, etc. etc.  And I am sure many people live long lives never changing these habits.  I just believe I will live longer and better without these things in my system on a regular basis.  Of

Dr. Joshua Dunsky, of Framingham, Massachusetts, presented on the topics of telomere science, accelerated aging and promoting longevity at the Anti-Aging Conference London.  Here is a glimpse at some of the information he offered to an audience of globally-renowned doctors, nutritionists, dieticians, researchers and other health professionals.

Are You Prepared For The "You're It" Economy?

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki's Why We Want You To Be Rich is, I believe, a well-written, easy to follow personal finance book.  Below are a couple of excerpts from this work:

Donald's View:  Robert and I realize that problems can be complex and, at times, seemingly endless but we want to encourage you to see them as challenges that will give you a chance for great achievement.  Remember, nothing is easy.  But who wants nothing?  Your financial intelligence is greater than that!"

Robert's View:  Today, our world faces some serious financial problems.  Many are interrelated problems, one causing the other.  Some of the more pressing ones are:
