TOMMY'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"Whatever you dwell upon seems to grow in your experience."
"Negative thoughts aren't a problem. The problem comes in when they camp out between our ears."
"We've got hundreds of problems, but millions of blessings."
"True gratitude is being grateful for the everyday moments."
"It's a national pastime to blame others for our own misery. The ultimate mark of a truly responsible individual is that they accept responsibility for their thoughts. They cannot blame."
"We learn from negative thoughts, but we don't need to basque in them."
"Our emotions allow us to feel what we've been thinking about."
"Sometimes we need to take action when we're dissatisfied or we risk becoming attached to dissatisfaction."
"Get over the thought that failing or not winning is not good. You've got to learn how to deal with disappointments to be mentally healthy."
"Goals tell your brain what to notice and pay attention to."
