You become what you think about most of the time

Hey guys! I’m back from a most relaxing and amazing vacation! Brian and I celebrated our 12-year anniversary on July 28th in good ole Wisconsin. It was perfect! Time back home, chilling at the sandbar, attempting to understand golf at the driving range, a few great movies, drinks by the fire, curled up on the couch with two ridiculously adoring puppies, tasty, tasty food, flowers, lunch with the parents and grandparents, and a surprise treasure hunt! All in all, an incredibly fun and amazing time with my best friend!

Before, after and while traveling I’ve reconnected with and expanded my understanding of the idea, “You become what you think about most of the time.” Essentially when you think and BELIEVE yourself to be a success, you will be a success. Conversely, when you doubt yourself and entertain thoughts of failure, you will fail. In other words, YOUR THOUGHTS are the reason for your successes – and your failures – in life. Take ownership of your thoughts. Be positive. Be grateful! Believe in yourself and your success in life!

In the words of Henry Ford, “If you think you can do a thing or think that you can’t, you’re right.”

Think of your mind as a transmitter of your thoughts – good and bad – to the rest of the universe. Better yet, think of your mind as a magnet. You will attract into your life people, situation and things similar to the thoughts you have in your mind.

Isn’t that interesting?

According to Einstein and Edison, our thoughts are actually physical things that when believed and concentrated on repeatedly will manifest in our lives. So if we focus on being in debt, we’ll be in debt. If we focus on, become obsessed over and clearly define what we want, and believe we’ll get it (that relationship, financial security, etc.), then it’ll happen.

Needless to say, I’m rereading for the fourth or fifth time, Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. Sponsored by Andrew Carnegie (the richest American at the time), Hill spent 20 years observing the wealthiest men in America during the early part of the 20th century to learn their “secret” to success. His life’s work is shared in “Think and Grow Rich” along with “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons”. Turns out it’s as simple – and as difficult – as putting your mind to it!

Enjoy the clip! It’s THEE Napoleon Hill sharing a conversation he had with Andrew Carnegie. Ahh…the power of the human mind. You must watch and appreciate the old-fashion charm, but most importantly appreciate the message.
