are not things of favour or chance,
but are the natural result of right thinking and well-directed effort;
with for the most part, the strength of the effort
being the measure of the result.
Those who master their thought-processes,
think positively, and act on that positiveness;
cultivate and nurture self-discipline and self-control,
direct their energies with intelligence...
and place a value on their time - achieve and attain.
To aspire is to achieve - and
to love is to attain.
A particular train of thought...
when pursued and persisted upon - will produce results.
We remain, rise, or fall by the thoughts we choose think and act on.
Our thoughts, whether they be life-enhancing or life-negating,
will for the most part, determine who we become as a person
and the type of life we live.
Hard life-lessons for me, I've come to know all to well.
Thought allied with great purpose becomes a powerful force.
This self-empowering force is within you.
