As I work to get back into the habits of highly successful people I find myself continuously guarding what I let into my mind. Since we become what we think about it stands to reason that one must be careful of what they allow to filter in their mind on a daily basis. As my good old friend Earl Nightingale puts it:
"The mind is like good fertile land. If you take 2 seeds one of night shade, a deadly poison, and corn and plant the seeds into the land and water them, both plants will grow in abundance. This means that the fertile land does not discriminate and the mind is the same."
Feed your mind negative thoughts and your reality becomes negative, the good news is that the reverse is also true.
I have come to understand this idea as fact as a law of nature that cannot be changed just like the laws of gravity as my good friend Earl puts it. They say the devil loves an idle mind, so I have decided to keep myself busy by continuing my education of money. I have found my copy of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and have already started reading it again. I have some very big goals for November and this book is helping put my mind in the right gear.
Happy Weekend Folks!
Stay Blessed and Obsessed with Success
