“The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of everything else to which he is justly entitled.”
The man who said that wasn’t suggesting a theory. He proved it. In fact, he acquired riches at a level like not one in 500 million does. If you measured his wealth when he was alive and adjusted it for inflation today, he would probably make Bill Gates and Warren Buffet look like a couple of panhandlers. That man was Andrew Carnegie.
In his day, the science around DNA and cell biology was just starting to develop. But he wouldn’t have needed a microscope to tell you that your cells are influenced by your environment. He was a living testament to this.
And he certainly wasn’t alone…
Ford, Firestone, Chrysler, Stone, Edison, and Napoleon Hill were all demonstrating the power of the mind half a century ago. Charles Fillmore and Ernest Holmes were proving it a century ago. Spiritual leaders were demonstrating this thousands of years ago.
Still science was preaching the dogma that that genes control life. And millions of people were buying into the mind virus, because doing so allowed them to absolve themselves of personal responsibility for what was happening in their lives.
So if you want to revel in victimhood, you love the idea of your cells pre determining what happens in your life. And that becomes a self-perpetuating reality.
But when you buy into the power of thought, and realize those thoughts actually attract and create your environment, and that environment helps create you – that’s when things get really interesting!
So what are you doing to create the environment around you? And thus, the next generation of you?
