I just learned about Earl Nightingale, a World War II era philosopher and author, and am blown away by his work. He shares a simple message about our psychology that has lasted the test of time and will continue to ring true. Our minds are powerful and capable of influencing our life. He gives a great metaphor for this in this meddage.
He goes on to talk about the power of our mind, and perception. Limitations are self-imposed, and if you feed your mind with limitations, it will begin accept them and produce more of them. The same goes for solutions and ambition. So, fill your mind with goals, ideas, and solutions that all point to success, and your mind will amplify that intention on its own.
