Let me start with a Happy Birthday to Kathy!!!
Now a few quotes from our weekly reading of Haanel that I liked.
Paragraph 11 “… There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “TO BE”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added”.”
We always create what we are BEING so to change we have to BE the change first.
23. “…Intuition can be cultivated and developed, in order to do this it must be RECOGNIZED AND APPRECIATED; if the intuitive visitor is given a royal welcome when he comes, he will come again, the more cordial the welcome the more frequent his visits will become, but if he is ignored or neglected he will make his visits few and far apart.”
What you appreciate, increases what you ignore depreciates. So ignore what you don’t want and get excited about what you want.
28. “You may be pursuing the symbols of power, instead of power itself. You may be pursuing fame instead of honor, riches instead of wealth, position instead of servitude; in either event you will find that they turn to ashes just as you overtake them.”
Mark J calls it the river of dreams but it’s the wrong stuff.
30. “The race has usually been for money and other mere symbols of power, but with an understanding of the true source of power, we can afford to ignore the symbols. The man with a large bank account finds it unnecessary to load his pockets down with gold;”
Love the line “unnecessary to load his pockets down with gold”
These next paragraphs talks about what to focus on which is different than what most of us focus on. Change the focus in your life and watch things change.
32. “This is because the Spirit of a thing is the thing itself, the vital part of it, the real substance. The form is simply the outward manifestation of the spiritual activity within.”
34. “If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.”
35. “If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.”
36. “If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.”
37. “Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact…”
Until our paths cross again.
Be Happy, Dream Big and Believe.
