The word for the day is repose. Not a word you hear much today. But you see it a lot when you study the works of James Allen. The definition is a vital one for prosperity...
It means peace of mind, tranquility, and composure. And peace of mind comes from right thinking. It’s an inside job; not something anyone else can do for you.
We’re all made up of our habits, and our habits spring forth from our thoughts. The essential difference between a wise person and a fool is the nature of their thoughts. The wise person controls his or her thinking. The fool is controlled by his or her thoughts.
To be happy, you actually have to determine how and what you’re going to think about and not allow external influences to divert you from your main purpose. A fool is carried away by every errant thought, going through life a helpless tool of impulse, whim, and desire.
The trick is finding the balance…
We want to be driven by purpose. But the danger is becoming boring, robotic, and programmed. One thing is sure: if your life is boring, it is not the life you were meant to live.
It’s okay to desire things and be moved by passion. But the person who is controlled by passion ends up cheating on their spouse, chasing material things with no satiation, or continually searching the next elusive high through drugs.
Thoughtlessness is always the companion to failure, unhappiness, and anxiety. Right thinking is always the bodyguard of harmony, happiness, and repose.
