THOUGHTS DETERMINE YOUR SUCCESS
Swami Vivekananda teaches: “We are what our thoughts made us; so take care what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live, they travel far.
Each thought we think is tinged with our character, so that for the pure and holy man, even his jest or abuse will have the twist of his own love and purity and do good.”
The inward state of blessedness can be cultivated by cultivating the mind by proper thoughts. The mind is to be trained to create, entertain, and perpetuate only right mental states. You have to give every thought you think the tendency and the power to promote your own individual purpose of life.
James Allen in his book, ‘From Poverty to Power’ narrates an interesting incident:
‘I know a lady who has entered into many blissful satisfactions, and recently a friend remarked to her, “Oh! How fortunate you are! You only have to wish for a thing, and it comes to you”. And it did, indeed appear so on the surface; but in reality all the blessedness that has entered into this woman’s life is the direct outcome of the inward state of blessedness which she has, throughout life, been cultivating and training toward perfection.’
Our dominant trends of thought determine our success or our failure.Buddha declared: “We are what we think. With our thoughts we make the world.”
So think positively. This should become a life time habit. And definitely in course of time all the silent forces will work and bring what one wants. It is worth remembering the famous quote:
“The heights by great men reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight, but they,
while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night”
