“What you are thinking every moment, of every day,
becomes a physical reality in your brain and body,
which affects your optimal mental and physical health.
These thoughts, collectively, form your attitude,
which is your state of mind,
and it’s your attitude, and not your DNA,
that determines much of the quality of your life.”
