The First Self Improvement Principle

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

Your life is determined by your thoughts and perceptions of it. Manifestation and the law of attraction are merely misinterpretations of this principle. Your life is nothing but raw sensation, and you project meaning onto it.

Therefore, if you wish to lead a good life, it is your responsibility to take control of your thoughts. As Jim Rohn, the godfather of personal development said, “If you want your life to change, you have to change yourself!”

Often people get lost in waves of sadness, anger, jealousy, or fear, and they begin to take those emotions for granted. Then, their emotions become habits, and they become depressed.

Your brain works through neural pathways.

Neurons fire, and they fire in sequences. They do this to create thoughts, emotions, feelings, and perceptions about the world. When you allow negative emotions to become habits, you’re making neural pathways for these emotions. The more a neural pathway fires, the better it gets at firing, and therefore, you can get lost in cycles of depression.

The key here is to take full responsibility for your mind. If you do not do so, then your mind will get lost in cycles, and you will be blind as to why you feel depressed. If you take it as your duty to be perspicacious of your mind, and to catch thought cycles, and to discard negative ones, and create positive ones, your life will become better.

So how does one do this?

Awareness, vigilance, and persistence. You need to be aware of how your mind works, by constantly observing it. You need to be vigilant within your mind, understanding when you’re feeding into undesirable thought cycles. And you must persist. Your mind will try to deceive you, it will come up with excuses, and will try to put an upper limit on your growth.

It is your responsibility to make your mind your ally. You must use your awareness to get your mindset on track with your goals. If you can do this, you will be the creator of your own reality.
