Every thought- seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces it’s own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit~ James Allen


Thoughts are truly things, they can encourage and lift us up to prosperity and success or drag us down to misery, poverty and self pity. It’s all up to us to choose which one we would rather have. If it’s the first one then we have to constantly work on it by shutting out all negativity and constantly reprogram our mind for the results we desire. If we really want those results that manifest on the outside, we must work on the inside first and those thoughts that will eventually manifest on the outside if we truly desire them with enough intensity to concentrate on them consistently and long enough. If we try to control the circumstances going on on the outside without changing what’s going on on the inside first we will always fail and come up short. 


Our self image is the main thing that controls our thoughts, it is a cybernetic instrument or servo mechanism, just like the auto pilot on a plane or a thermostat controlling the temperature in your home. If either vary or get off course it will be brought right back to where it was if we don’t put in the necessary work to change it. If we have a bad self image, then the thoughts that follow most likely won’t be ones that encourage and inspire us. Allen also said “ Mind is the master power that molds and makes and man is mind… and evermore he takes the tool of thought and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys or a thousand ills. He thinks in secret and it comes to pass, our environment is but our looking glass.”


Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for this mastermind designed to help us do just that and thanks to all my friends and mastermind partners along with me on this journey. Many blessings for a 2022 filled with joy, prosperity and abundance.
