The Master Of Circumstance

Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes that he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself. ~ James Allen

    it is so much easier to blame outside circumstances than take personal responsibility for our thoughts and actions. It is critical to develop this mind set and habits so as to create the life that we all truly intend and desire.

    It sounds good but I have to be honest, I’m not exactly sure what it means. I have to read it a few more times. Maybe its because I’m tired or something.

    Who hasn’t said, “it broke” instead of saying, “I broke it.”?

    Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! As a man (woman) thinketh, so he (she) is. Daily we must CHOOSE right thinking ;). Our thoughts determine our actions and our actions determine our destiny. Choose wisely!!!
