It all started with an idea and now it is turning into reality
It came as a complete surprise to be nominated for the – Success Blog Star Awards – since this blog only exists a few weeks and is now competing with some other quality blogs. How amazing is that? It is going crazy! I do everything I can to improve, just because I want to. You want to know what I want? Finding out what makes me happy and ways to do it and keep doing it off course. That is the key, all is for nothing if this story ends soon. This blog is just a tool to have some interaction. Interaction is both ways, it is the only possible interaction there is; just like the only motivation is self-motivation. I feel inspired by so many people and they are slowly telling me how they appreciate what I write about or what I do. Well, that is just amazing. It really is.
If I win this competition I will receive the following things:
- Coverage in the January 2016 issue of SUCCESS magazine
- Opportunity to work with success.com on future content partnerships
- Exposure with the SUCCESS brand via website, newsletters and social media promotion
- Congratulatory package from SUCCESS including a badge identifier to share on their blog
No secrets, that is what this blog is all about. When I started it, it was just a dream. I thought about it everyday and look what the reality looks like now. Believe me it is all about attitude, it is all about the power of your thoughts.
Think about it!
If you think that it is cold, you will feel cold. If you think that you are getting sick, you will feel sick. But if you TURN it to your advantage you will notice how powerful our mind is and that you can really make changes this way.
Allow me to bomb you with some quotes. Yes, I know! Normally I just add one, maybe two, but please bear with me I will explain afterwards.
All what we are is the result of what we have thought
– Buddha –
Man´s greatness lies in his power of thought.
– Blaise Pascal –
It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it.
– Leon Brown –
More gold has been mined from the thoughts of men than has been taken from the earth.
– Napoleon Hill –
You have the power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.
– Marcus Aurelius –
Did you like these quotes? Do you feel them? I do! As you have probably noticed I love them, they are mostly wise words from people with experience all collected in a few sentences. Isn´t that amazing? We can find truth in them, by reading a few words. Everybody that I know knows how to read, but only few of them actually read. What a waste! Now do not feel bad if you are one of those people, to be honest I was one of them as well. You know what I did? I made excuses. I said: “Gosh, I have to read so much at work. I only feel like reading on vacations” Are you serious Bram? Letting you laziness control such an important part of your life, gaining knowledge. Shame on you, wright? Naaaah, do not be so hard on yourself, remember the power of thoughts. Negative thoughts should be avoided, because go back to these quotes and you will see that these negative thoughts will translate into negative actions. Nooo no, be smart and keep your thoughts constructive, because do not doubt their influence on your life.
Still I did not explain why I bombed you guys with this list of quotes. Heh!? I could have chosen just one, wright? I hear you: “common man: I thought this was an espresso not a bucket full of coffee from Starbucks?”.
All these quotes are about the same subject. So, why put more than one? Because I wanted to make the following point.
With the exception of myself there were so many great people true the history that made the same quotes and this time line shows just a fraction of people who shared that opinion. That is the reason why I wanted to show you guys all of these quotes. Do not follow me, absorb what you believe and be a student of life. Think wisely and you will have a bright future.
Let us continue this journey and inspire and learn how to be inspired!!
Thank you all for the support, I can feel the love!
