Here's a few of my favorite quotes so far:
"The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts."
"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength."
"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."
"The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts."
See a theme? • Power over your mind. • My dream. No, actually it is one of my greatest goals.
My thoughts are a mess sometimes. Like most people I sometimes allow small problems to become big in my mind. But it doesn't end here, because a lot of the time I feed them, unconsciously but still consciously (that made no sense, yet I can't think of a better way to describe it), and let them blow out of proportion. Some people call it anxiety, others call it overthinking, to me it is a challenge, my challenge - a real stumbling block at times - and one I believe I have the power to overcome. Reading books like "Meditations" inspire positive and powerful thoughts. The kind I think all of us could use a few more of, the kind of thoughts I want to learn to teach my mind to use as my "go to" thoughts when things get rough.
Confidence, things to think about and positivity is what this book has already left me with, and I'm not even half way! If any of you decide to read it or already have read it I would love to hear your thoughts about it in the comments down below.
