As soon as our thoughts change, everything changes. It is amazing sometimes, after months of battling, to see how a problem just isn’t there any more, simply because the delusion has gone. The problem felt so real, so insurmountable, but now it is no longer appearing. At those times, I think it’s important to pause to relish the liberation we feel, understanding that there is plenty more where this came from. This is both encouraging to our self-confidence (and we need that), and a way to increase our wisdom. We realize that there is nothing behind our empty thoughts, and even our thoughts are empty – free — depending as they do upon their objects.

Henry Ford was right on the money when he said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
Truly, the seeds you plant now will yield a harvest. The crop is your choice. Do your best and the harvest will be bountiful. Just plod among moving with the mediocre crowd and your rewards won’t match your dreams, Change your thoughts and you can change your world!
