“You may feel like dwelling on your limits or your fears. Don’t do it. A perfect prescription for a squandered, unfulfilled life is to accommodate self-defeating feelings while undercutting your finest, most productive ones.” – Marsha Sinetar

The Power is Within Us
In some ways the power of thought is like the power of money. No one really tries to argue the idea that money doesn’t have power. They’ve seen time after time where money when gathered together and put into action has resulted in someone or some organization in acquiring something of great value, whatever that might be. Maybe we can learn something about how we handle money that might help us deal with our thoughts more effectively.
We’re careful about our money, aren’t we? We guard it, and we keep it in a safe place, don’t we? If we have thoughts, perhaps we should watch over them carefully too.
We try and avoid debt. Debt can eat away at our money. Debt is negative in nature. Since it’s only the positive thoughts that produce desired results, we should treat negative thoughts with the disdain that we treat debt with.
Money is more useful when it’s organized. If we took handfuls of our money and threw it to the wind, we might have a lawn littered with it, making it look like we have tremendous amounts of it, but in short time all of that would be gone, wouldn’t it? Scattering our positive thoughts among mindless- or worse- mainly negative thoughts- has the same effect. We want to pool our positive thoughts together and cut down on the randomness of our thought patterns if we want power to emerge from the thinking we do.
We treat money with respect. Most of us don’t mock the money we own, we try not to destroy it intentionally by burning it or leaving it where rodents are likely to eat it. If we respect our thoughts accordingly, we won’t spend time thinking or worrying about negative consequences so much as those positive things we wish to achieve.
We don’t question the value of money. We’ve seen it in action. We ought not question the power of thought, either. We’ve all seen how when someone puts all their thought energy on doing or getting something where they were able to produce something miraculous. There is no difference between the brain stuff they have and our own. They’ve just used it differently. That’s something to think about, isn’t it?
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“How can I best harness the power of thought?”
