Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Oscar Wilde Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 – 1900)
This short little post is basically a reflection of the past year for me, which has been stunningly successful in nearly all aspects of my life. Here are three reasons for my success this year.
- The Law of Attraction. As Descartes said, “I think therefore I am”. But more importantly its how you think. Learn about the Law of Attraction and how it can change your life (usually dramically!)
- Don’t think passively. Think passionately! The quote above from Oscar Wilde is one of my favourite quotes precisely because most people take what they hear and accept it. Challenge your thoughts, research and find your own truth instead of living by someone else’s! Question everything sacred or mundane to find your own Veritas.
- Change your environment to suite your truth. When I was lad in school, I remember reading a haiku that said something like “Water takes the shape of the gourd that it is in” – simply meaning water has no shape, so it takes the shape of the its container (in this case a gourd). What this means is that our environment has a great deal of influence in transforming who we are. Instead of passively allowing this to happen, change your environment to fit your own goals and dreams.
