Assingment One

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

Unpredictable circumstances, people, and actions fill the world around us.  There are few things that you actually have the ability to completely control.   You can not control what others do to you or the weather day to day, but you can control what you think about others, what you say to others, and how you act every day.   The author of the passage above coveys to the reader that they must control the things that can be control because those are the things that affect what you can not control.  If you do not keep a hand on the things that you think, they will turn in to the words that you say.  The words you say, if not what you really wish to be heard, can affect you in a negative way.  So the author is trying to say watch you thoughts so you can late manage your words and stay away from unwanted situations. He is saying the same with the other words as well.  Words, actions, and habits are all things that you can control; however, if you do not control what you can while you can you can be put into unwanted situations that can be avoided.
