“The thoughts we choose to act upon define us to others, the ones we do not, define us to ourselves.” – Yahia Lababidi

Positive Quote: “The thoughts we choose to act upon define us to others, the ones we do not, define us to ourselves.” – Yahia Lababidi

This quote brings reflection to me. I see it as true. No one but ourselves knows what we could have done and didn’t or chose not to and it defines who we are and what we believe on the inside.

The quote reminds me of the TV show “What Would You Do?” where people are placed in situations unknowingly to see how they react, if at all. It could be a person being racist or someone shoplifting or someone slipping something in someone’s drink…do you say nothing, do you step in, what do you do… these are the type of moments I think of when I read this quote.

When no one but you is there, what do you do? How do you define yourself to you?

Is who you perceive yourself to be how others see you?

I think this is such a good quote.

Have a tremendous Thursday.
