In his thoughts become things speech, Mike Dooley examines the principle at work behind the saying 'Be careful what you wish for, it might just come true.' This principle, Dooley believes, is one of the timeless truths humanity is unaware of, similar to the discovery of Earth being round or the invention of flight. This principle is that thoughts become things, that the law of attraction creates our lives based on what we think. Just as the law of gravity affects every human regardless of who they are or if they know about it, this principle works the same way.
This makes the practice of visualization all the more powerful. Dooley shares his personal experiences as a young professional to drive the point home. He implores the audience to choose their thoughts wisely, as the thoughts become things speech states it's not just the positive thoughts that materialize. If one focuses on what he or she wants and visualizes it, then dreams can be deliberately created.
