You Are What You Think Off 3 to 5 Years Ago...

I have this theory which I strongly believe is true. I know this is confusing but bare with me on this...

Well the thought is this - whatever you’re doing and thinking (your thoughts, dreams and random things) today will determine your future 3 to 5 years from now.

I'm not sure if this is scientific or something but if you think of negative thoughts (and positive thoughts), it will happen. For example, if you curse another person, chances are it will back fire. I've seen through people's misery and based on their character, they are likely to say awful things to people somewhere in their past.

On the other hand, if you choose to think of none, dream of nothing and live like your nothing. Nothing will come.

Any thoughts? Do you think I’m crazy or stupid for thinking of life this way? I’d love to read what you have to say.

    Hi Mert. Many thought leaders through the centuries have believed we gravitate toward our dominant thoughts. It's been said in many ways through the ages.

    Check out some of the publications from the New Thought movement that started in the early 19th century. That's a common theme. Here's a quote from the beginning of the book, As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen:
    Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes,
    And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
    The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
    Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:--
    He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
    Environment is but his looking-glass.
    He wrote that in 1902, or I should say that's when the book was first published. You can download a free copy in several different formats from Project Gutenberg: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4507. There are quite a few free publication there on this topic.

    The 3 to 5 year timeline you mention I would say may be more of a side effect of other influences, such as how persistent the thoughts and how much belief is vested in them, for example.

    I think you'll enjoy some of the reading you'll find from that era. I know I do. It's thought provoking whether a person believes the associated theories and philosophies or not.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

      I can feel how you feel about that. Because more than 2 years ago I have idea and do what I want, in this time I keep do it to today, so I can feel I moving with my thought, my feel and my ability on it. I meant what we do or think about then we get result about it in future. What you are thinking, doing from right now, you can know what result you will get in future.

      It's not what you think about but what you think and get off your ass and do something about which comes about

      Hey Gary, You are right... It's not just the thinking, it also has to do a lot of doing.

      Cheers!

      You will get what you want relatively fast.
      how about those who're struggling from certain diseases and wanted to live, yet still not making it so far???

      Yes, I am well aware of that book and the theories it offers. The same principles are used by Napoleon Hill.

      Yes, this is ancient knowledge all right, and it goes back to way before books in print. I agree that the 3-5 yr timeline is dependent on the intensity and persistence of your thoughts. I've had things manifest within days, and others took several years to unfold. I'm learning to become more focused and to become more aware as I go about my days' work, and immediately redirect my thought/emotional energies to what I want whenever they start taking a negative turn.

    Three years ago I had been running a website for a year to that point, but it was the 2nd year and 3 years ago that things really started happening. It was in my thoughts everyday like it is today. I think you're onto something here. Whatever you believe most strongly right now in 3-5 years that will be you're new reality. Life can change a lot in a short time. You really don't know where you'll be, or maybe you do, you just haven't created it yet.
