I get more excited everytime I apply what I’m learning in this course to my everyday life.
Yesterday while listening to many of my collegues tell thier success stories designed to inspire me I began to feel the old blue-print come on pretty strong. The feelings of disappointment, failure, and jealously overwhelmed me. This time I was prepared because through this course the material that my mind is composed of contains strength, courage, and determination.
I recognized the thoughts and observed the progression. I spend a minute complaining to my husband and showing my ugly side, well aware that that was not going to get me anywhere. It was only going to lead to the death of my dreams and right back where I started from bring others down with me. As I complained, I began to let my reasonable mind take over. Logic and facts far outweight uncontrolled or undisciplined emotions. “We can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of the environment” “It is by the exercise of this power that we take our fate out of the hands of chance” Charles Haanel. The facts are that I am no different than anyone else in ability, intellegence, or knowledge but I possess something most people don’t…..the mindset, the belief, and the connection to all that is necessary to succeed.
“I continued on in despair”, Og Mandino, and did my nightly reading and “sit” to process the information and connect with the truth. I turned to clarifying the vision of my dreams and desires.
By the next morning I had changed the stories around to how they will benefit me and my teams now and in the future. I looked at them as possibilities not self dissappointment. Futhermore, I looked at how my struggles will be of great benefit in the long run in so many ways. As I did that the positive energy and thoughts took on a life of thier own in creativity, excitement and expectation. Its so true what we are learning. Positive thoughts contain life; negative thought kill everything and die. “If a thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything necessary for its complete development” “If a thought is destructive, it will have within itself the germ of its own dissolution; it will die, but in the process of dying,it will bring sickness, disease (or dis-ease), and every other form of discord” Charles J Haanel.
I won!! Good thoughts contain LIFE! Every obstacle is but an opportunity to grow and exercise my mind, my thoughts and in turn my surroundings! “and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise” “I will persist untill I succeed because I am nature’s greatest miracle” Og Mandino.
