Welcome to Tuesday! No reason is can’t be the greatest day of the week! We begin our discussion with a quote:
Thought and character are one, and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstance, the outer conditions of a person's life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state.
Now this does not mean that a man’s circumstances at all times are an indication of his entire character, but without a doubt a man’s character has everything to do with how a man develops. No man can grow to his greatest capacity without good character. And, who you are to your very core, starts between the ears.
“Every man is where he is by the law of his being.” Things don’t happen by chance. A person may get lucky, but being lucky doesn’t equal being successful. Success comes from creating your circumstances instead of waiting on chance to create them for you. “Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes that he is the creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself.” Boom! Freakin boom!
Everything that we do from the beginning of the day contributes to the mastery of what we are becoming. Whether that be a force for good or bad. Whether that be person who serves and protects the ones he loves or a person that selfishly looks out for no one but himself. Our lives are shaped by actions, which are shaped by our thoughts. So, if there is a part of your life that you are not happy with right now, start by creating an idea in your mind of what you would like it to look like. And replay that over and over and over and over again. Then start to say it out loud. Than transfer it to paper. Then transfer it actions. Then, watch your world and your struggles change forever. All because you decided to become the master of your own thoughts.
