What we become

You have heard it said, “We become what we think about.” The great inspirational speaker Earl Nightingale called it The Greatest Secret, it’s the basis of the book The Secret, and writer James Allen wrote a brilliant little book more than 100 years ago along those lines: As A Man Thinketh.

I want to drag one sentence out of Seth Godin’s new book, The Practice, and suggest a corrolary.

“We become what we do.”

One follows the other.
