Take Control

“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. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“[In order to] liberate the potential of your mind, body, and soul, you must first expand your imagination.  You see, things are always created twice: first in the workshop of the mind and then, and only then, in reality.  I call the process ‘blueprinting’ because anything that you create in your outer world began as a simple blueprint in your inner world, on the lush picture screen of your min.  When you learn to take control of your thoughts and vividly imagine all that you desire from this worldly existence in state of total expectancy, dormant forces will awaken inside you.  You will begin to unlock the true potential of your mind to create the kind of magical life that I believe you deserve.  From tonight onwards, forget about the past.  Dare to dream that you  are more than the sum of your current circumstances.  Expect the best.  You will be astonished at the results.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with that twelve-pound mass sitting between your shoulders.  Or more specifically, with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day.  Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world.  By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“There is no such thing as objective reality or ‘the real world.’  There are no absolutes.  The face of your greatest enemy might be the face of my finest friend.  An event that appears to be a tragedy to one might reveal the seeds of unlimited opportunity to another.  What really separates people who are habitually upbeat and optimistic from those who are consistently miserable is how the circumstances of life are interpreted and processed.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Mental mastery comes through conditioning, nothing more and nothing less.  Most of us have the same raw materials from the moment we take our first breath of air; what separates those people who achieve more than others or those that are happier than others is the way that they use and refine these raw materials.  When you dedicate yourself to transforming your inner world your life quickly shifts from the ordinary into the realm of the extraordinary.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“To live life to the fullest, you must stand guard at the gate of your garden and let only the very best information enter.  You truly cannot afford the luxury of a negative thought – not even one.  The most joyful, dynamic and contented people of this world are no different from you or me in terms of their makeup.  We are all flesh and bones.  We all come from the same universal source.  However, the ones who do more than just exist, the ones who fan the flames of their human potential and truly savor the magical dance of life do different things than those whose lives are ordinary.  Foremost amongst the things that they do is adopt a positive paradigm about their world and all that is in it.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“You are entirely responsible for cutting through your own laziness, addictions, and unclarity.  There is nothing to wait for and nobody to blame.  Whatever techniques are appropriate, use them.  Try talking with your friends, using therapy, practicing meditation or prayer, going on a vision quest, reading scripture, walking in nature, keeping a journal, or studying with a teacher.  Remember that your success with any method you choose depends entirely on your actual commitment to discovering your deepest truth and aligning your life with it.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

“Once you have grown into independent adulthood, you no longer need somebody to take care of you.  You can be responsible for yourself.  In particular, you realize that you are responsible for your own happiness.  Nobody can live your life for you.  You must create your own health, success, and happiness.  This sense of self-responsibility is only a partial maturity, however.  Beyond self-responsibility lies the responsibility to give your gift.  It is important to grow beyond dependence on your intimate partner for your own happiness.  But it’s equally important to grow beyond simple independence and autonomy.   The next stage of intimacy after personal independence has been attained is the mutual flow of gifting, or serving each other in love.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

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

“I am liken to a grain of wheat which faces one of three futures.  The wheat can be placed in a sack and dumped in a stall until it is fed to swine.  Or it can be ground to flour and made into bread.  or it can be placed in the earth and allowed to grow until its golden head divides and produces a thousand grains from one.  I am liken to a grain of wheat with one difference.  The wheat cannot choose whether it be fed to swine, ground for bread, or planted to multiply.  I have a choice and I will not let me life be fed to sine nor will I let it be ground under the rocks of failure and despair to be broken open and devoured by the will of others.  Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World
