What Do You Want?

Good morning!

I hope you are having as great a morning as I am. I just came from a two-day boot camp and I am exploding with happiness at the breakthroughs I was blessed with over the weekend! I am amazed at the power my brain wields and now know better than to just let it all go to waste. I am convinced, now more than ever, that I should feed it daily with the right thoughts and work my hardest to keep the trash as far away as possible.

I just want to share some bits of brain food I got from my The Daily Love subscription. Enjoy feeding your mind and have a great day! :)


The Daily Love

Beethoven was deaf, Milton was blind, but their names will last as long as time endures, because they dreamed and translated their dreams into organized thought.

There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until s/he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.

Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. A great poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines:

'I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I has asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.'"

- Napoleon Hill
from his classic and best-selling book "Think and Grow Rich"


P.S. There's so much more I want to share from my learnings over the weekend. Let me gather my thoughts (and reread my notes) and I will be back with some crunchy food for thought for everyone. See you on the next post.

P.P.S. This I learned from Kunnal Nayar (of The Big Bang Theory) and I'd like you to try cos it unbelievably works. Close your eyes for a second and then smile. Smile a big smile and feel the happiness. Don't you feel lighter? Be awesome today, okay?
