Just mulling over a few key points on the latest upload on our sister YouTube channel The Happiness Network.
The personal development classic, The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale has some brilliant points. Here are some of my favourites.
“The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice. It is conformity”. I’ve never been a sheep and it took me a while to work out where I wanted to go. All I knew was that I didn’t want to do the same as everyone else.
“A success is the school teacher who is teaching school because that’s what he or she wants to do. A success is the woman who is a wife and mother because she wanted to become a wife and mother and is doing a good job of it. A success is the man who runs the corner gas station because that was his dream. That’s what he wanted to do. A success is the successful salesman who wants to become a top-notch salesman and grow and build with in his organization. A success is anyone who is doing deliberately a pre-determined job because that’s what they decided to do! But only 1 out of 20 does that”.
“We become what we think about. You are guided by your mind” This is so true. Surround yourself with positive influences. A post on your Facebook feed can determine your success for today. A used to get a Pizza Hut offer in my email inbox every Tuesday. Until that email came through I hadn’t thought about pizza ail week, but that little prod from the marketers had me thinking about pizza all day. Of course, I unsubscribed. Conversely, yesterday I had The Crossfit Games on TV all day. All I could think about was working out. And this is the point, surround yourself and fill your mind with things that are a positive influence and help you to grow and ghet closer to where you want to be.
