Quotes of the Day 20080116

“Everything that happens in your life is moving you in the direction of your goals.” — Bob Proctor

“I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of my mind, and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want, and much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one, available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest.” — Andrew Carnegie

“Some things that look like they are in our best interest are often not going to serve us when we see the big picture. We have to trust and let go, realizing that everything that happens is for our highest good.” — Joe Vitale

“I trust that it’s all happening perfectly for my highest good.” — Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.

What is the lesson here? What is the common theme of these quotes? It’s easy to see that the first, third and fourth are all different ways of saying the same thing. But what does the second quote have to do with the rest of them? Simply that in order to see that everything that happens to you is for your good, to see the silver lining in every dark cloud, you must be in control of your mind.

As Jim Rohn would say, “It’s not the blowing of the wind, but the set of the sail. The same wind blows on us all.” It’s not so much about what happens to you as how you choose to respond to what happens to you. Take everything that happens and as yourself what the good is in that situation. Keep asking until you find it.
