Questions cause us to think and when we think for ourselves, we learn to control ourselves and our actions. When we take control of our mind, we take control of our body… Then and only then can we take control of our future.
We must first die… the death of who we are… it is when we die that our soul is cleansed to be who we want to become.
What is the point of dying, if when we are reborn, we do not get to enjoy the pleasures for which we had to pay the price of pain.
Learn to control yourself. Learn to control your mind. Learn to control your body. With enough control the strong spirit within you will awaken and the hidden “other self” will come alive. It is when and only when we awaken our “other self” that we can move beyond our current limitations to the impossible.
Do not fight the struggle.
Do not fight the discomfort.
Do not fight the growth.
Learn to embrace the discomfort but do not develop negative feelings about it. It is not about running yourself down but awakening a part of you you didn’t know existed. We do not get there overnight. The struggle is long to find out if our commitment is strong enough.
Every adversity is a test.
A test of mind.
A test of body.
A test of spirit.
A test of courage.
A test of strength.
A test of our ability to continue moving forward with patience and persistence toward a predetermined goal or outcome.
“Millions of people have questioned my power… I ask no person to believe in me. I prefer people fear me. I am no beggar! I take what I want by cleverness and force. Begging people to believe is the business of my opposition- not mine… I get what I want by exercising self control. I suggest you emulate me instead of criticizing me. You call yourself a thinker and you are… but you will never be the sort of thinker that frightens me unless you gain and exercise greater control over your mind and emotions.” -Napoleon Hill
