"Every man is what he is because of the dominating thoughts which he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces which direct and control his every movement, act and deed!"- Napoleon Hill
Isn't that a powerful statement!
What do you let control your mind?
What information do you allow to be your dominating thoughts?
Many people "wander" around life letting outside circumstances control their mind! We want to begin to create our own circumstances! What do you really want (to create)?
Here's another quote from Hill in his book Think and Grow Rich...
"Not only thought impulses which have been mixed with faith, but those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, or any of the negative emotions, may reach and influence the subconscious mind"
"...mixed with faith" Faith is a state of mind! And as highly regarded as it is to have faith, no one teaches us how to acquire it!
Hill gave us the answer when he said " Repetition of affirmations of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith"
It is the subconscious mind that controls our actions. If you're not willing to take the action, nothing will change! So how do we change our subconscious mind?
Repetition of Affirmations! Recognise the patterns in your life that are not serving you and by being objective you will begin to discover where the changes are needed and are to be replaced.
THIS IS EXCITING!
This means we have the power to influence our subconscious mind by the dominating thoughts that we think! And WE get to control what we think!
Start to pay attention to what your dominating thoughts are, pay attention to the results that you're getting that do not serve you. Be objective! I can't stress that enough! Remember, how you do one thing, is how you do everything! Then start to think of the equal and opposite (positive) result you do want! From there you will create your affirmations.
Spend time everyday doing this! The more you do this, OFTEN AND CONSISTENTLY, you will begin to influence your subconscious mind, not only to look for the good but on how you can do better. When you do this you will develop faith and begin to see different results!
Remember this, your best will be different every day. Be easy on yourself! You CANNOT out perform your paradigms!
