Perception

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. – Napoleon Hill

What you believe you need, whatever rules you think apply to certain situations, that’s what you’ll need to obey.

Of course, the main issue is the debilitating beliefs, the frames of mind that inhibit you from achieving your dreams and goals.

Stuff’s quite simple: create a reality you are proud of, one that makes you happy.

Just fucking do it!

Don’t be lazy. Don’t be seduced by the easy way out, the one that says you can’t because of this or that. They are only excuses.

Don’t be poor; poor is a frame of mind, broke is a temporary situation. Poor is one who thinks others became rich because they stole, or got lucky, or had the opportunity to live in different times.

Broke is something you can fix.

Don’t be lazy. In action and thinking. Don’t hate what you have yet to understand.

Decide for yourself. Never let others create your reality for you, for it won’t be a pleasant one.

It is simple. Not easy, but simple.

You’ve got to fight for this. Battle after battle, day in and day out. The war never ends. There’s always something new to learn, to adapt to, to overcome.

The map is not the territory. No solution is permanent. Everything is temporary. You are also.

So why the fuck would you want to spend your life with your head down? Crawling through life?

Why not keep your head high, why not fly?

      • It’s become really popular lately I’ve been seeing loads of books about it, and the timeless advice it gives is so great. I bought a book about stoicism for a friend and she loved it, as its a lot more realistic and down to earth than a lot of these self-help, new-age books out there. This post of yours was right on the money for stoicism, well done it was so insightful and really motivated me today, thank you :)
