Before I began my Real Estate Career... I taught seventh and eighth grade in the Cleveland Catholic Schools. One of the programs stressed in our school was called "Becoming A Person." The main tenet of this program was pretty much as the title stated... we... each of us... are all in the process of "Becoming A Person."
Life is not a "state of being"... life is a process. Life is not a "destination"... it is a "direction..." or a "journey."
There are basic laws in physics that state that an object that is in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an "outside force." The other side of that is that an object that is "at rest" tends to stay at rest... unless acted upon by an "outside force."The above "objects" are just that... objects. The forces that are either able to change the direction of those objects, or put them in motion when originally at rest... those forces must come from "outside" that object.

We are in luck. We really are ! We... have The Edge. And that "edge"... is "ourselves."
When we combine the sense of "Becoming A Person" with the above laws of physics, we do not have to depend on an "Outside Force" to either change our direction, or to move ourselves from standing totally still... to being in motion.
We... are that force. As hard as it might be to believe this at first... We... are in control.
Whatever it Is that We are thinking... those same thoughts are a perfect reflection of whatever it is that We are becoming.
And since what We are thinking determines what We are feeling... We can also control our feelings.
We have an "Edge." And that "edge"... is "Us."
We have the power to become who We choose to be. Whatever We focus on... We will become.
Whenever We choose to think what We think, and whenever We choose to feel what We feel... whether We know it or not... We are... all by ourselves... choosing who it is that We are becoming.
What are you choosing to think ? What are you choosing to feel ?
Those choices... are YOUR choices.
The thoughts and the feelings that you focus on... are what determines Who and What You Are Becoming.
What Are You Choosing to Think ? What Are You Choosing to Feel ? Who Are You Choosing to Become ?
And can you find... within yourself... the power to Make That Choice ?
