I found this to be a real eye-opening read!
"You create your entire world by the way you think. " WOW! It really makes me wonder how much of my lack of success is my own self-deprecating inner voice that see me as a failure and a FAT GIRL!
My main goals now shall be to rethink and reevaluate my perceptions of myself and to refocus those ideas which are affecting how I am achieving my goals.
SUCCESS IS NOT AN ACCIDENT by Brian Tracy
Success is not a miracle. Nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, you only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, and you will eventually get the same results that they have.
This is referred to in the Bible as the Law of Sowing and Reaping which says that, "Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap."
Sir Isaac Newton called it the third principle of motion. He said, "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
For you and I, the most important expression of this universal law is that, "Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects."
Put another way, "Thought is creative." Your thoughts are the primary creative forces in your life. You create your entire world by the way you think. All the people and situations of your life have only the meaning you give them by the way you think about them. And when you change your thinking, you change your life, sometimes in seconds!
The most important principle of personal or business success is simply this: You become what you think about most of the time.
It is not what happens to you but how you think about what happens to you that determines how you feel and react. It is not the world outside of you that dictates your circumstances or conditions. It is the world inside you that creates the conditions of your life.
