Knowledge does not apply itself, we must make the application and that is to fertilize the thought with a Living Purpose. – Master Key Pt 12 -Haanel
I love listening to Earl Nightingale’s great work ‘The Strangest Secret’ where he says “We become what we think about.” This theme is repeated over and over in life and in every work of success that I have studied from the Bible on through the ages. In this weeks study of the Master Keys, we open with the statement “There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought.” Wow!
What we need to understand is the POWER that our thoughts have. Again think of the quote ‘we become what we Think about’ and understand that this is the beginning of success. If we want to create the IDEAL life, successful business, successful relationship, or what ever we must first create it in our mind and focus on it.
But! as Haanel points out in line 6: “your ideal must be Sharp, Clear-cut, Definite” If we have erratic or unfocused goals then success will never be ours. The price of success is vigilance it is focus and clarity of vision.
“Unless you can concentrate upon the object which you have in view, you will have but a hazy, indifferent, vague, indistinct and blurred outline of your ideal and the results will be in accordance with your mental picture.” – Haanel
Or as I often say Fuzzy goals = Fuzzy results. What is your life up to this point? how have your results been? What have you manifested? Ouch personal reflection and introspection can be painful! But understand this, that your intention drives your attention and if you can be specific you will enjoy the outcome.
We create our own circumstance through our mental activities and emotional vibration. Why do we do the mental diet? (see the 7 days to a new you on the side) Because developing a positive mental outlook and removing the negative bias from our life is imperative to the function of creating the purpose and life we want to live.
The things we would have are created in the mental world first before we bring them into existence. In other words we must concentrate on our goals and ambitions and give purpose to our dreams then we will live them.
Live on purpose with a purpose and watch the world open up for you!
