“Man’s greatness lies in his power of thought.” – Blaise Pascal
Have you ever given much thought (no pun intended) with regard to what your thoughts are? Where they come from or the power they have in shaping your life?
Every waking moment you are thinking or having self conversation. The power of thoughts plays a crucial role in determining how things happens in your life. Be it meditation, prayer, or just focused intention, the power of thought can change your attitudes, our emotions and your actions.
Like they say, change your thinking, and it can change your life. Basically it is our thoughts that count. Life is not a matter of chance or luck. It is largely the result or effect of your thoughts. It is your subconscious mind which is responsible for all that we do. It is a store of memory and of instinct.
If you could harness your subconscious mind, then you can control your actions; and by controlling your actions you are able to govern and direct your life togreat extent. Your subconscious mind acts entirely upon suggestion.
