The Power Of The Made-Up Mind
In fact, as I point out in my book, there is nothing that is more powerful than a made-up mind! When you believe in yourself and you make up your mind to do something, there is nothing that can stop you. You are your most powerful when you truly put your mind to accomplishing a goal.
Knowing this, why would anyone ever settle for less than a made-up mind? You do not have to settle; instead, make a resolution now that you will control your thoughts and therefore succeed at the things you want to do. It is important to understand that you have control over your thoughts, so you control your result. Let that sink in for a moment: the results you experience are a direct result of your thoughts, and your thoughts are a direct result of your decisions. Therefore, your experiences are a result of your decisions. You are in control, so use that control!
James Allen may have said it best: “In your hands will be placed the exact results of your thoughts; you will receive that which you earn, no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fail, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your wisdom, desire, as great as your dominant aspiration.” These are powerful words. You control your environment and your outcomes. You alone are responsible for what happens to you, good or bad. Your failure or success can all be traced back to your own actions, and those are a direct result of your thoughts.
Once you truly understand this, you can begin to manage your thoughts more effectively and gain the success that you want in everything that is important to you. When you begin to think you are failing, change your thoughts! Think about ways you can succeed, and you will begin to succeed. This powerful tool will serve you in every area of your life, from your relationships to your work to your education. No matter what you choose to do, when you make up your mind to succeed, you will!
