“There is a law in psychology that if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be, and you keep and hold that picture there long enough, you will soon become exactly as you have been thinking.”
Many consider William James the father of modern psychology. He fully understood the power of human mind and creative visualization. The fact is that we become what we think about all day long! So, what are you thinking about most of the time? How do you see yourself in your mind’s eye? Do you see yourself as one who has unlimited potential capable of achieving any objective or a victim of circumstances? Do you believe that life events create your reality or do you use the events as stepping stones toward accomplishing your goals?
“People are disturbed not by things that happen but by their opinion of things that happen.”- Author Known
It is our opinions of things and not the things themselves that cause the disturbances of our lives. What a great source of liberation to know that no one can upset us, that nothing out there can make us feel miserable, that we can control how we feel by how we decide to process things, events, and other people, and their opinions.
