Mindset

“In our daily life, problems invariably arise.  But problems themselves do not automatically cause suffering.  If we can directly address our problem and focus our energies on finding a solution, for instance, the problem can be transformed into a challenge.  If we throw into the mix, however, a feeling that our problem is ‘unfair,’ we add an additional ingredient that can become a powerful fuel in creating mental unrest and emotional suffering.  And now we not only have two problems instead of one, but that feeling of ‘unfairness’ distracts us, consumes us, and robs us of the energy needed to solve the original problem.” ~ Dalai Lama, The Art of Happiness

“Hell is not part of geography, it is part of your psychology, and so is heaven.  You create your hell, you create your heaven.  And it is not in the future.  Herenow somebody is living in heaven and somebody is living in hell – and they may be sitting together, they may be friends.  Don’t be worried about hell and heaven; they are just your states.  If you live in the mind, you live in hell.  If you live in the no-mind, you live in heaven.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

The Perpetuating Effect Of Our Actions. All Of Our Actions. Big and Small. And Why You Should Act Wisely.

The ripples of every action

“Everything you do has an impact. Who you are – that you are – actually matters. In an interconnected world (the only kind we have), our actions and the actions of others are inextricably linked- we are always and forever in a dance of mutual influence with those with whom we directly and indirectly participate.  It is the unavoidable reality of being social creatures, only magnified by an ever-increasingly complex and interwoven societal structure.  We matter to each other.” ~ Paul Greiner

Drop a stone in water and watch the ripples flow gracefully and powerfully from the center.  

The actions we take on a daily basis aren’t much different from that stone.

We already are making a difference in the world – we just might not realize it yet.

Every action has its ripples.

I was browsing through my Facebook newsfeed as I occasionally do, and I stumbled upon a post on mindset.

The opening line was ever so seductively, “Let’s talk about mindset for a minute:” …And I didn’t stand a chance – I got sucked right in.

What you are about to read is that post.

If we had to sum this design up into one quote:  “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude to me is more important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.  It will make or break a company… a church… a home.  The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past… We cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is plan on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude…  I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.  And so it is with you… We are in charge of our attitudes.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll

“Understand once and for all that your mind has magnetic power to attract all that you desire into your life.  If there is a lack in your life it is because there is a lack in your thoughts.  Hold wonderful pictures in your mind’s eye.  Even one negative image is poisonous to your mindset.  Once you start to experience the joy this ancient technique brings, you will realize the infinite potential of your mind and begin to liberate the storehouse of ability and energy that currently sleeps within you.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“The mind works through pictures.  Pictures affect your self-image and your self-image affects the way you feel, act and achieve.  If your self-image tells you that you are too young to be a successful lawyer or too old to change your habits for the better, you never will achieve these goals.  If your self-image tells you that lives rich with purpose, excellent health and happiness are only for people from backgrounds other than your own, this prophecy will ultimately become your reality.” ~ Robin S.
