"Mind is the Master Power" - Morning Inspiration Series #2 - by @WitnezMe
Gooooooood mooorning STEEMIT!
Why This Series?
On my RV nomad adventures, I've been fortunate enough to been able to work on my own entrepreneurial ideas, without having to worry about money. That all changed this week though--I needed to pick up a 9-6 day job to tide me over for a while.
I did NOT want to lose momentum on my personal projects, and feel like I was just working to tread water. That feeling SUCKS!
So I've been getting up extra early every day to do get a session in on my projects, since I'm usually brain-dead after work.
And to keep me on track I'm going to post a strong motivational text or quote each morning,
for all you Earlybirds out there, tryna get the jump on Charlie. (Sorry @Charles1)
James Allen is a little-known but extremely influential writer. Dating from the early 1900's, his books on mindset, success, and character were incredibly influential upon later titans of self-help, Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, and more. His book As A Man Thinketh really got me out of a tough place. Day-by-day I will be sharing his "Morning and Evening Thoughts". Absorb them slowly, and carry them with you throughout the day.
None but right acts can follow right
thoughts; none but a right life can follow
right acts; and by living a right life all
blessedness is achieved.
Mind is the Master-power that moulds
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes.
The Tool of thought, and, shaping what
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
Environment is but his looking-glass.
Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful
jewels of wisdom. A man becomes calm in
the measure that he understands himself
as a thought-evolved being. . . .
And he as he develops a right
understanding, and sees more and more
clearly the internal relations of things by
the action of cause and effect, he ceases to
fret and fume, and worry and grieve, and
remains poised, steadfast, serene.
