“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.” – Napoleon Hill
“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” – Napoleon Hill
I believe that each living person that enjoys the fruits of success nowadays has consciously or unconsciously applied the success principles that are laid in Napoleon Hill‘s legacy “Think and Grow Rich”.
However, what knocked me over these past few days was the “Think and Grow Rich” seminar organized by Proctor-Gallagher Institute that was held a week ago.
I have just finished watching the replay…
And I am still gathering my impressions…
I am really blown away…
“If I want to be free, I’ve got to be me.
Not the “me” I think you think I should be.
Not the “me” I think my spouse thinks I should be.
Not the “me” I think my son thinks I should be.
If I want to be free, I’ve got to be me.
And I’d better know who “me” is.” – Bill Gove
Who am I?
What do I really want?
I am asking myself these questions from the beginning of this event, right after I’ve heard this quote.
And who are YOU?
What do YOU really want?
Everything begins with these questions…
What do YOU really want?
Not anybody else.
It’s a tough question.
We’ve always been thought to think of others first.
Leave our wants, needs aside… Like someone else is going to take care of them.
Not to be selfish.
We have buried our wants and needs so deep that we really have to dig a lot, question a lot and hope that maybe, just maybe we will find our true selves.
I am glad I attended this event (not in person but through the streaming option they provided).
I am glad Bob Proctor shared this quote:
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live; it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.” – Oscar Wilde
This is the time to ask yourself what YOU want the most.
If you are among the lucky ones, living your true self – good for you.
If you are yet to discover your true self – don’t stop!
Keep asking yourself these questions!
YOU can be it.
YOU can have it.
YOU can do it.
There are no limitations…
Unless YOU put them to yourself.
This post is meant to encourage you as much as it is meant to encourage myself as well.
I am on a crossroad.
Having an internal battle which way to go.
The path I am already on… very familiar… very predictable…
Or to take a new one… uncertain… challenging… getting me out of my comfort zone with enormous stretch… and thus – making me grow… significantly… and leave a mark for my presence in this wonderful, wonderful world.
Reading it for more than half a century surely has given him the insight no one else has.
Living it for more than half a century, going against the odds, becoming living inspiration for many, including myself… that’s what gives him credibility for knowing what he is talking about…
And I might as well listen to him…
So, what do I really want?
I guess I have known that since ever. Only I haven’t been aware of that. Consciously.
Now that I am letting it shows on the surface… I know that I can’t stop it.
And I won’t.
I wish YOU could do the same for yourself.
Me, you, everyone – we deserve to live our lives to the fullest.
Love to all.
