Fortune Friday: “If you can shape it in your mind, you will find it in your life.”

To quote Napoleon Hill: “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

If the world ever learned to truly believe this, we would see the end of poverty, hunger, workplace discontent, broken relationships, and a host of other ills. But we don’t believe it. We doubt, we hesitate, we second-guess ourselves. We second-guess the other person.

But even worse, we allow ourselves to get distracted. We let petty, mindless diversions intrude on our time for quiet introspection. We get distracted by work, sports brackets, favorite vices, and household chores. We overpower the still small voice of inspiration with pointless TV shows, constant Tweeting and angry music.

The remedy is embracing the quiet. We need to carve out time to reflect. Time to shape and mold our vision for our lives. Dr. Wayne Dyer often says, “You do not attract into your life what you want. You attract what you are.”

What are you shaping in your mind? Who are you becoming?

To your good fortune!
