Greetings, Art Lovers!
I've become more
and more intrigued by something. Something that
affects each and everyone of us each and every second
of every day!!!
The topic of "what we think
how it affects each of our daily lives.
pondering this topic I came across the following poem
(which by the way I think would make a great Dr. Suess
book), written by Walter D. Wintle in the early 1900's.
this out for mind-blowing!
you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you
dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but you
think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch that you won’t.
you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out of the
world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will,
all in the state of mind.
you think you’re outclassed, you are,
to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself
You can ever win a prize.
battle doesn’t always go
To the swifter or faster
But sooner or later the man who wins
man “who thinks he can.”
of us already know that power of positive thinking...yet
this is different. I'm talking about every thought we
have, everything that we allow to muse about in our
heads and its link to what we bring about in
our lives. And I'm beginning to understand the ratio
between time thought about a subject and the direct
and indirect results of such musings.
a personal experiment of sorts, I've begun to see if
I can control what exactly I think about. Whoa, now
there's a hard exercise! To shush your mind and
then PICK your topic of thought and stay focused
on that for a selected about of time. There are thousands
upon thousands of books written about this subject.
And for me personally, my "think project"
is only just beginning.
certainly does seem that we I think about I
invite more of into my life. So if this is the case...then
why am I not bringing about the things in my life that
I "say" I want more to have in my life? (ie,
travel, free time, financial freedom, etc) And
now that we know this, NOW WHAT? Armed with this information...it
requires me to work at exercising my thoughts with focused,
do you think?
