Thought power

What would you fear if you knew for certain that your fear would bring it upon you? On what dream would you focus the power of attention and commitment if you knew, without a doubt, that your commitment would make it real?

At any given time, there is a thought living in your mind. Everything you’ve ever accomplished, came to you through a series of thoughts. Every fear that has ever held you back, came to you as a thought.

There is awesome power in a tiny drop of rain, when with other drops it gathers into a mighty storm. Similarly, each thought is a small thing, lasting only a moment and then gone, only to be replaced by another. Yet when many thoughts are all focused in the same direction, there is no limit to their power.

Your thoughts will come and they will go. They are yours to use. Gather enough thoughts together in the service of a common goal, and you will make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
