Just Do It


everything you do matters
All of your actions and thoughts determine your experience.

by Jonathan Hilton

As I have pondered many things in my life, it has come to my attention the there was a vast array of things that I was never told or never learned. Clearly there were lessons that needed to be taught that I was ignorant of.  As a young man, I lived life with no real consideration for the impact of my actions. I had no Idea of the value of them or the influence that they would have over my own unique existence. I have often wished that someone would have pulled me aside when I was 15 and told me that everything I did really mattered, for good and bad. Yet I probably wouldn’t have listened anyway, but it would have been good to have the option.

Why It All Matters

Simply put, the things that you do in your life make up who you are.  You are not

Try this and reap the benefits

permanently marred by a bad decision in most cases, but until you stop the negative actions, you are going to see a lot of negative results.

Many times when I was growing up and even in my adult life I found that it was easy to do what was convenient rather than do what I knew was the right thing.

If you believe in the basics of quantum physics that all thoughts react with your cellular make up to produce a vibration that is positive or negative depending on the thoughts and emotions that you predominantly experience.  It is the idea that what you put out into the world you receive back.

I freely admit that in the past I would have thought this was foolish, but my own observations over the past two years have led me to believe that this is more important to your happiness and enjoyment of life than virtually any other factor.

The thoughts to choose and Not to choose

positive action
Be the positive force in your own life!

When you choose to be kind, friendly, forgiving, loving and grateful, these are the experiences that you manage to get back from others.  I have seen this work in my own life.  This is an easy one to test out for yourself as well.  Approach the day you experience, the people you meet and the situations you experience from a positive perspective and see what you get back.

It never seems to fail, that if I am having a “bad day” then I am entertaining thoughts that are on the negative side, being judgmental, critical, unaccepting or just mean.  Once I realize the thoughts are there and I let them go, things will turn around.

The great thing is that anyone can do this and it doesn’t take any more talent than to be able to think in a more positive way.

What about Bad People and Things

There are people in the world who do bad things all the time, you always have a choice to let that person affect you negatively or to forgive them and not allow them to affect your life. A hateful act can’t be negated with more hate.  Just like violence only leads to more violence, hate will only lead to more hate.  You always have the choice what thoughts you entertain in your life.


The types of thoughts that we entertain and give our attention to will determine the type of life that we experience each day and we each have the conscious ability to decide what those thoughts are going to be.  You decide if you choose the negative side of anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, dishonesty, fear , inferiority or ego.  Or you can choose positive thoughts of joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth to determine the kind of world you experience.

It is all up to you and what you think, this is something that I am sure of .

One thought on “Just Do It”

  1. Spot on JD. It is up to us. Up to us how we think. Up to us on how we carry through with those thoughts. Up to us to decide who we want to be and how we want to live.

    But, I don’t think having people tell us that when we are younger would do any difference. Sure, it would be nice to be told and have the option to listen or not, but these kind of things are called life lessons for a reason. They have to be experienced. They have to be learned through the actions and choices and thoughts we’ve made already.

Let me know your thoughts.
