Embracing Mind Over Matter
Throughout life, we’re going to continuously face low-points, challenges, and difficulties.
Some will have a clear purpose and some will seem grossly unfair and undeserved. But however they show up, you have at your disposal the greatest tool the universe could have gifted you: your mind.
It’s using the mind properly that helped Holocaust survivors, like Viktor Emil Frankl, find meaning and survive the concentration camps of World War II. It’s the mind that helped titans like Sylvester Stalone, Oprah Winfrey, and J.K. Rowling become who they are today. And it’s the mind that will help you take on whatever comes your way and achieve your own greatness if you use it properly.
When you start to feel overwhelmed with whatever you’re dealing with, remember these quotes and keep thriving:
– Napoleon Hill
but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.”
– Gillian Anderson
– Stephen Hawking
– Will Smith.
– Bruce Lee
– Earl Nightingale
– David Goggins
– Norman Vincent Peale
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
Are you embracing ‘mind over matter’ to live your truth?
If you’re still breathing and still encountering challenges, then there’s room to grow and continue to blossom. My hope for you is that you’ll rise to the occasion and continuously push the boundaries of what’s possible for you. If you need a bonus quote, always remember the words of Henry Ford: Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – either way you’re right.
Wishing you a week full of mind over matter!
PS – My most recent guest on Are You Being Real?, Chris Sams, willingly made the decision to go full on Forrest Gump and run end-to-end across America. And even though he had a clear purpose for doing so, it was still difficult for him to get up each morning and run 20+ miles so he could reach the finish line on his goal date. To hear how he embodied ‘mind over matter’ on his journey, helped others along the way, and practical tips he uses to live a healthy and fully expressive life, check out our interview on Episode 219!
