William James said, “The greatest discovery of my age is that men can change their circumstances by changing the attitude of their minds.”
Without the renewal of the mind -a change in the stinking thinking that got us into our mediocre existence- we build on a faulty foundation, sea sand that will see our efforts crumble like a pack of cards. Without the transformation of the mind, there is no foundation for lasting success!
A wise person once wrote, “Circumstances are what they are. They are neither positive nor negative; they’re neutral. What we choose to make of them is negative or positive. Our choice will reflect our attitude, and our attitude will project a self-fulfilling prophecy. We choose; we are in control; we are personally responsible – not any set of circumstances. Regain control, exercise the right and power of choice, clear your mind of excuses, and shed the role of the victim. Become a creator, rather than a creature of circumstance and nothing will prevent you from achieving your goals.”
What are some of your faulty thought processes? Today is a great day to shed the garment of excuses. Dump the clutches that have held you from achieving your goals. Today is a good day to put on a whole new attitude of success. Remember, you can shape your day by your choices. Choose to make it outstanding.
Magic Pearl: “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” ~ George Bernard Shaw.
