Romans 8:38-39NIV

 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Earl Nightingale on Success

Earl Nightingale on success-" those who succeed have established personal goals.
Success is not the result of making money; making money is the result of success and success is in direct proportion to our service.
Here are five steps that will help you realize success:
  1. Establish a definite goal.
  2. Stop running yourself down.
  3. Do not think of all the reasons why you cannot be successful -- instead think of all the reasons why you can achieve success.
  4. Trace your emotions back to childhood -- discover where you first got the negative idea you would not be successful -- face your fears.
  5. Renew your self-image by writing a description of the person you want to become -- Act the part -- You are that person!"

"The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science" by Thomas Troward

I have been reading and practicing the Laws of Mental Science. The work that I am reading currently is Thomas Troward's "The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science".This work was printed in the early 1900's and it has a race superiority over tone which I had to look over unless I would have been distracted and missed the wealth of knowledge which was shared on the pages of this book.

Without going into great detail of every point and principle shared in the book, I would like to take the time and mention one important point which stood out for me in particular and that is, "The Spirit will reveal itself to the individual to the exact degree that the Individual conceives the Spirit." Please take some time and intake the magnitude of this statement.

I have read other works which have discussed the Laws of Attraction but no other work has ever explained in such a clear and simple manner the reasons why the Laws work. After reading "The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science", I have gained a clearer understanding of "why" the Laws work and as a result I am now ready to confidently put in to practice the "how the laws work"

Until my next entry, Peace and Blessings,
Tonie

It's Up To Me
I get discouraged now and then 
When there are clouds of gray,
Until I think about the things That
happened yesterday.

I do not mean the day before Or those of months ago, 
But all the yesterdays in which I had the chance to grow.  
I think of opportunities That I allowed to die, And those I
took advantage of Before they passed me by.

And I remember that the past Presented quite a plight. 
But somehow I endured it and The future seemed all right.  

And I remind myself that I Am capable and free.  And my
success and happiness Are really up to me -James J. Metcalfe

Your Birth Certificate Validated: “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:11-13 NKJV
Dr. Walter Doyle Staples said it best in his book Think Like a Winner:

When you change your thinking,
you change your beliefs;

When you change your beliefs,
you change your expectations;

When you change your expectations,
you change your attitude;

When you change your attitude,
you change your behavior;

When you change your behavior,
you change your performance;

When you change your performance,
you change your life!

Confirmation:

"I am an irresistible magnet with the POWER to attract unto myself everything that I divinely desire according to the thoughts, feelings and mental pictures I constantly entertain and radiate.  I am the CENTER of my universe. 

I have the POWER to create whatever I wish.  I attract whatever I radiate.  I attract whatever I mentally choose and accept.  I begin choosing and mentally accepting the highest and best in life.  I now choose and accept health, success and happiness. I now choose lavish abundance for myself and for all humankind.  


This is a rich, friendly universe and I dare to accept its riches, its hospitality and to enjoy them now."

The Man Who Thinks He Can

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't
It's almost a cinch you won't
If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will;
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

Walter D. Wintle, "The Man Who Thinks He Can." - Poems That Live Forever, comp. Hazel Feldman 1965

Perfect Self-Expression

I have been feasting off of Florence Scovel Shinn's book "The Game of Life and How to Play It."  I would like to share with you a passage from the chapter "Perfect Self-Expression or The Divine Design"

"There is for each man, perfect self-expression.  There is a place which he is to fill and no one else can fill, something which he is to do, which no one else can do; it is his destiny!

This achievement is held, a perfect idea in Divine Mind, awaiting man's recognition. As the imaging faculty is the creative faculty, it is necessary for man to see the idea, before it can manifest.

So man's highest demand is for the Divine Design of his life.

He may not have the faintest conception of what it is, for there is, possibly , some marvelous talent, hidden deep within him.

His demand should be: "Infinite Spirit open the way for the Divine Design of my life to manifest; let the genius within me now be released; let me see clearly the perfect plan."

The perfect plan includes health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression.  This is the square of life which brings perfect happiness." Florence Scovel Shinn
