“The power of thought is the only thing over which any person has complete, unquestionable control- - a fact so astounding that it points to a close relationship between the mind of man and the Universal Mind of Infinite Intelligence, the connecting link between the two being FAITH.” Napoleon Hill
* Patience. Learn to be patient with yourself. It takes time and effort to learn anything new. Whenever you discover something new within you that you’ve never considered doing before, take heart and go for it. You’re about to get on with your higher destiny. Test these new feelings about your inner self. You will discover new strengths you can use to drive you forward. Successful people do this all the time. This establishes a pattern of great behavior that you may not have known until you try it.
* Passion. Be driven by your passion to discover new abilities. With inner passion or desire, there is nothing that is too difficult to do. Passion forces you to overcome obstacles and forces you to act. This is another step to successful living. Life isn’t limited to having to do the same things over and over again. Stretch your imagination. Find new ways of doings things. Make your life exciting and fun! Be aware. With awareness of your inner dreams and abilities comes the most important reason to choose the direction your life can go.
* Change. You can change your own destiny. There’s no such thing as a hard and difficult life. There are good times and there are bad times. Doing just one thing to change the outcome of a bad situation so that it never happens again comes with practice and experience. Remaining calm and confident when in a difficult situation provides you with the help you need to do the best you can. Form a mental picture of the way you wish the challenge to be resolved and act toward that result. The next time you hear an inner voice of doom and gloom, tell yourself there is a higher authority just waiting to get you out of any anxious situation. Your thoughts have power!
