Advice of the day

“It’s all about character. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

Watch yourself become a paranoid maniac.

I just came across this on someone's otherwise interesting tumblr. There's so much of this kind of idea. It sounds like a version of being grown up and it has some truth to it, but it basically appeals to people who are desperate to control their lives and who find the suggestion of how to achieve that as appealing as a piece of glittery tinfoil is to a magpie (allegedly).
