“Whatever your situation may be, you can improve it. First, quiet your mind so that inspirations
may rise from its depths. Believe that God is now helping you. Visualize achievement. Organize your life on a spiritual basis so that God’s principles work within you. Hold firmly in your mind a picture not of failure but of success. Do these things and creative thoughts will flow freely from your mind. This is an amazing law, one that can change anybody’s life including your own. An inflow of new thoughts can remake you regardless of every difficulty you may now face, and I repeat–every difficulty.”
“The secret to a better and more successful life is to cast out those old dead, unhealthy thoughts. Substitute for them new vital, dynamic faith thoughts. You can depend upon it–an inflow of new thoughts will remake you and your life.”
Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking
Wow! So true!
P.S. I heard a teenage boy quote his dad on Father’s Day as saying,
“What do whiners get? Nothin’!”
It was funny, especially coming for a fourteen year old boy.
In like manner, I’d have to say,
“What do lazy thinkers get? Negative!”
If we want to improve ourselves and our circumstances, we must improve our thinking and that takes work and dedicated effort! But it can be done!
