We’ve talked about your subconscious and what you listen to and see affects your subconscious. We’ve talked about getting rid of negativity. I’d like to talk about the something obvious…….thought. We’ve dancing around it, talking about parts of it, but let’s talk about it as a whole for today.
I want to start you off with James Allen , this comes from his book as a man thinketh (Allen, 2015, pg3) – our thoughts are little seeds, which can be planted by others as we mentioned in the subconscious episode. We also talked about how to get rids of other seeds of influence to plant new seeds of thought into your subconscious to mold your character into whatever you want it to be.
Napoleon Hill in his book Think and grow rich says (Hill, 2013, pg9).. purpose, persistence and burning desire. When we have purpose with out thoughts, our thoughts become so much more powerful (Allen, 2015, pg37).
As we talk about what we want to achieve, we understand these thoughts make our character, and giving thoughts purpose pushes us towards an achievement, but in that push we should also understand it no one’s responsibility to achieve this but our own. Yes, we have help from others, but our success and failure can be no one else’s fault but our own. (Allen, 2015, pg43) I think this is so important. We have a habit of waiting for other’s to help us when 1st we must help ourselves.
So Bob proctor in the Art of living says (Proctor, 2016. pg49)
I asked myself, what do I love so much, I would do it for free…..
As I began my process of trying to attract what it was that I wanted. It seemed like obstacles were being hurled my way. I feel it was/is to prepare me for this life I wanted to live, and this is where the persistence comes in. You learn more about your character, decide on what parts you want to keep and sacrifice and keep….pushing…. through. and just like it provides obstacles, it also provides encouragement and inspiration to help you see your goals more clearly.
I heard the best quote the other day ” Your task in not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers with in yourself that you have built against it” ~Rumi This is exactly what you are doing.
Never mind the people who say you can’t do something, or any opinion they have about what they expect from you. “Their opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality” ~Les Brown unless you choose for it to be so.
Find your purpose, be persistence and feeeeeeeel that desire. Napoleon hill calls it a burning desire. He says it is starting point of all achievement. For us it is the 1st step to living a fulfilled life. He says you’ll know when you have a burning desire because you’ll have no problem burning bridges to all other options ( there is no plan B) You must achieve it! You mentally cannot even imagine yourself failing (thought). How do we do that? We have to reprogram our subconscious, we have to reprogram our thoughts.
