As the old saying goes:
“Watch your thoughts as they lead to attitudes
Watch your attitudes as they lead to words
Watch your words as they lead to actions
Watch your actions as they lead to habits
Watch your habits as they lead to character
watch your character as they lead to your destiny”
As we grow older, our little kinks become more hardwired in our character. What might start as a minor eccentricity might developed in a full fledged gangrene if not intervened in time. That’s why most people need to take pauses to reflect on their actions/thoughts/predicament and dealings. Humans live for 100 years and build on their past interactions. So how slowly but drastically we transform often amazes me.
