Who do you think you are?
You are your thoughts! Have you heard that statement before because it is a truth! Just think about it for a moment if you feel good about who you are and your purpose in life, you walk tall, look good and project an attitude of confidence and self-respect. If on the other hand you feel dejected, unworthy and exhibit low self-esteem, your body language reveals that same message to the world and all whom you come in contact with.
Napoleon Hill once wrote that in order to enjoy great wealth or great success, you must believe that it is possible with every ounce of your being. According to Hill, "98 percent of people had few or no firm beliefs, and this alone put true success firmly out of their reach." He said: " Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
So after hearing those words, the next question is: What is your purpose? Do you believe with your whole heart and mind and soul that it is possible because what you believe is what your outcome will become.
It is all about the power of your mind. We all know it is an awesome vehicle that only humans possess. It is actually our duty and responsibility to cultivate our mind irrespective of the level of education that we possess. Many of our first millionaires had nothing more than a primary level of education. They went to work at an early age anddidn'tfeel sorry for themselves but rather pushed harder than ever to gain more knowledge and understanding through their own personal discipline of being ardent readers and observers of other people's success. Just think about it, no one can control our minds many prisoners of war were saved simply by the power of their minds. They refused to let anyone destroy their creative abilities or the power of clear thinking.
In today's world, too many people complain about their poor luck or misfortune when they have no one else to blame but themselves. Government is not the answer. It only enslaves you more and encourages you to become even more dependent. It is only through your own personal courage, strength and discipline that each one of us can grow and prosper to the depths that we desire.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. --Napoleon Hill
What ever your mind feeds upon it attracts. So it stands to reason that you have in your control the power to direct your thoughts to harness great wealth, that is, sound health, inner peace and balance, financial wealth or positive emotional and relationship abundance.
It has been proven that our largest and most damaging limitations are the limitations that we place on ourselves. For it has been said over and over again, man has the power to conquer and man has the power to destroy. You are limited only by your own capacity to believe. The question is Where are you placing your power today and whom do you think you are?
Remember a negative mental attitude can only bring you failure. You are who you are and where you are due to your mental attitude. Either it is working for you or against you as always you are the one who gets to decide.
