“What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” Mark 11:24
“We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact. We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and eliminating all consideration of conditions or limitations and are planting a seed which, if left undisturbed, will finally germinate into external fruition.” Quote from Haanel.
Our desires are all based on our use of the creative power of thought. To Think! Take the wonderful ability to think and create the desires that are waiting for you. All we have to do is think. What are my desires? What are your desires?
Love & Harmony,
Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the world Scroll 3 “I persist until I succeed. I consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes, the oak eventually tumbles. So it will be with my efforts of today. I persist until I succeed.
Each day I take one small action or as I call it, a sap. (Small Achievable Perfection) As I continue each day with that one action it compounds into many small perfect actions and eventually, I accomplish that which I have desired. I persist until I succeed and I win.
How does persistence help you achieve the things you desire out of life?
Love & Harmony,
Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done. Begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought.
From Matthews Adams, ” Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”
If your thought has been critical or destructive you are out of harmony with a mental attitude that will be conducive to constructive thought. This is why we must take the Mental Diet very seriously and control mental habits that do not serve us.
The Law of Substitution is what I have used to overcome destructive thought. We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters my mind, I use any fond memory or other pleasant thought to replace the negative thought. I use a positive, happy thought when destructive thought has tried to invade my thinking. I control my mental habits. Love and Harmony, Joan
From Haanel this week we learn: “Concentrate on the things you want, not on the things you do not want. Think of abundance; idealize the methods and plans for putting the Law of Abundance into operation. Visualize the condition which the Law of Abundance creates; this will result in manifestation.”
“In order to harness thought force and make it do your bidding, work is required.”
“Create ideals only, give no thought to external conditions, make the world within beautiful and opulent and the world without will express and manifest the condition which you have within.”
Once again, I am reminded to create the world within. Make it the best picture of what I want and the world without will have to change to meet my new creation.
Do you struggle with this idea of setting your mind on that of what we want? Do you want to change your world without? It takes work to make the changes we seek. It takes thought force. Thought is the fire that creates the steam that turns the wheel of fortune.
