Our thoughts, and the mind that works with those thoughts, offer much more power than we realize.
Opening ourselves to this power from moment to moment gives us a deeper appreciation for our journey and builds the framework of a great life built on consistent habits and thoughts.
Take control of your thoughts and take control of your life…
All mental states are followed by some bodily activity of some sort. They lead to inconspicuous changes in breathing, circulation, general muscular tension, and glandular or other viscereal activity, even if they do not lead to conspicuous movements of the muscles of voluntary life. All states of mind, even mere thoughts and feelings are motor in their consequences.
Hate, envy, suspicion, fear and worry and the ugly things of life disappear when snowed under by courage, faith, friendliness, love and confidence.
When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long.
Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Understand that the mind as commonly understood, is an instrument much like a trolley pole, or third rail contact, that can reach inwardly and outwardly and tap powers and resources undreamed of by the mill run of people – this is the beginning and basis of real advancement.
The great intelligence is revealed through nature.
Pettiness is always the soul’s corruptor.
Every thought you let yourself think, every emotion you permit yourself to enjoy leaves its mark and helps either to make you insufficient for life or to give you some greater sufficiency. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Let a man make it his habit to refuse pettiness day by day and to choose robustly, and he can little by little develop a soul which shall, at last, become equal to anything!
It is given to the world to learn one great and divine lesson—the lesson of absolute unselfishness.
This too shall pass.
Worry—is weakness. You will always find a streak of selfishness behind every worry.
In the end you find that trials, difficulties and misfortunes have taught lessons–strengthened the human fibre, sharpened the tools used in life’s battles, and that all things work for good in the end, for it is the law that the life principles are ever working for perfection.
The only fundamental way to change things is to change your consciousness.
You cannot cheat nature – it is the law that you must and always will attain the condition that belongs to your consciousness.
If you don’t know where you are going, you are lost before you start.
The fellow who falls down on the job will be back on his feet a lot quicker than the one who lies down on it.
The way to judge your ideals and methods is to look around and see how far they have brought you,–and work.
Some folks get all the life kicked out of them trying to get a kick out of life.
