The Power Of Your Mind


calm-carryon-px-250This article on the power of your mind was sent to me by my friend Nadia, headed up by the statement:

 “If we don't give up…. then there's  always a chance of getting up!  So, don't let's give up now,  the remaining days can still work for us..”

This really blessed me and I am sharing it with you to bless your week.

One morning, all the employees in a factory got to work and saw a notice written on the notice board:

“Yesterday, the person who had been hindering your promotion in this company passed away. You are invited to join in the funeral.”

Who could it be? They were sad for the death of one of their colleagues. Afterwards, one-by-one they gathered at the grave side, mainly, to know who exactly the man was.

“Well, at least the man who had been delaying my progress is dead now and I will be able to progress”. These and many more were their thoughts.

Inside the coffin there was a mirror and everyone who looked inside could only see him/herself reflected in the mirror.

Next to the mirror there was a sign that read:

“There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your progress…It is YOU – your SELF. You are the only force who can influence your happiness, success and realizations”

Your life does not change when your boss, friend or company changes…your life changes when YOU change…

You go beyond your limiting beliefs as you realize that YOU are the major determining factor of your life.

It's the way YOU face life that makes the difference!

Get to work now.

Begin to change your life from the inside today.
And you will see how successful you will be.

Thanks to Nadia for passing on that uplifting thought.

  • Hi Joy! Thanks for sharing this inspiring piece. (Thanks to Nadia too). And the message of the story is right. Our own selves are our biggest obstacles in achieving success, and we cannot blame the others for that.

      Hi Grant,

      Welcome to my blog, I hope you’ll find many interesting posts.

      Yes – reminds me of the saying “If it’s to be, it’s up to me” – which many people in the online marketing industry ought to take note of!

    Hey Joy,

    Nadia has shared something really touchy. People dream about their success but fail because of their poor mind strength.

    If you believe you can accomplish your goal, you will. The mind is the strongest part of our body if you use it properly.

    Have a positive mindset and you will reach at the top.

      Hi Ravi,

      Yes – I think we often let ourselves down by having poor mindset. I know it’s something I have to constantly work on. Like a muscle, it needs to be exercised.

    Hi Joy

    What a beautiful post with so much insight. You are right that the only thing that can stop us from moving forward is us. Nothing else can make us to quit.

    Thanks for sharing. Take Care

  • Hi Joy,

      Hi Joan,

      Glad you like Nadia’s story and hope it reaches someone who needs it 🙂 Although I guess everyone needs a reminder now and again.

  • Hi Joy & Nadia,

    Good pass-it-forward Joy. Nadia, unique spin on a universal truism. Thank you for implanting this wonderful vision into my mind.

    • Joy says:

      Hi Edward,

      Yes – know what you mean!

      I guess we all have to look in the mirror regularly, in more ways than one.

  • How very clever, and I could not agree more! I’ve been working a lot on this theme recently, talking about breaking through self-limiting beliefs. It’s tough because it’s always so much easier to play the blame game, but if you can get through to even one or two people it’s worth the effort.

    • Joy says:

      I have to keep a check on doubting myself as I know this is something I’m prone to 🙂 I’m only too ready to blame myself.

    Phew! thank you Joy for sharing. Perfect time for me to read this right now, you have blessed me in return.

    • Joy says:

      Hi Amaka,

      Well, as you may guess, I published it because – at the time – it was the right thing for ME to read too.

      It seems to have done the trick, too, as I’m feeling much more positive of late.
