“Discard everything that does not spark joy.” ~ Marie Kondo; Japanese organizing consultant and author.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” ~ Steve Jobs; American entrepreneur, business magnate, inventor, and industrial designer.
People are either of ordinary thinking or of a higher thinking, good, loving people even:
Ordinary thinking ones will always feel jealous of others, perhaps without realizing it, and live in fear, because they cannot understand that life changes by the mind one has, so they believe that life changes due to external conditions–economy, neighborhood, president, and so forth.
Higher or extraordinary thinking ones will always see life with a positive outlook because that is their character, and even though they may be poor or unsuccessful in their own lives they will support and wish well for others.
One may be born in a family of ordinary thinking, in an atmosphere of emotional neglect and fear-mongering; however, your mind is what truly changes your life and not your external conditions or surroundings, so in order to follow your dreams uninterruptedly you must focus in you internal environment, and whenever you hear negative or mediocre talk in your external environment make sure your attention remains within and not without.
Small minds, ordinary thinking, are there to challenge you, to make you stronger; so, even though these small minds do not realize it, they are a source of strength for you, and as long as you have this in mind you will grow and your mind will achieve great things.
A great mind then will drive you forth by creating really strong and intense feelings within you that will mold your behaviors to design your better reality and access the wiser you. The purpose of a great mind is to raise above the mediocrity and self-pity we may all feel at some point in our individual lives, and also it is to shut out all the noise and opinions of the people around you, such people who may be your loves ones or society in general.
Stop waiting for approval or for the support of others, take charge of your life and become the Master of your life; and the Master always stands out from the crowd by making his own rules, by creating his own path, by not giving in to self-pity and pressures from outside himself, and by not following or leaning on others for the design of his life. The Master knows that the path is the Warrior’s individual design, by molding his thoughts, by not letting small minds interfere with his vision, by embracing his greater destiny the Master becomes the Greatest Sage.
The key here is patience and perseverance while you allow your attention to focus on your internal environment and not on your external one…
