“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” by James Allen, 1902, based on a verse in the book of Proverbs from the King James Bible.
My thinking is affected, if not inspired, by what I hear, see and read. I think this is true for everyone. Since what I listen to, watch and read impacts my personal and professional development, it is my responsibility to monitor and choose quality in the way of music, video and reading material if I want quality results to be manifested in my life and career.
Lately, my reading list (which appears in part on my LinkedIn profile) consists of books relating to the law of attraction, how to live, and self correction. I find myself reflecting and resting in the selected writings of Beop Jeong (a contemporary Buddhist monk) while wrestling with trying to get out of my own way using the “clearing techniques” author Joe Vitale writes about in several of his books.
What have I learned from these readings? It is true that I am my own worst enemy, but I am also my own best teacher. I alone am the master and commander of my life with the power and responsibility to set my compass and direction.
I recognize that I have a lot to learn and I do not know what I do not know. Reading about something does not impart a full knowledge in and of itself. Once it is applied or experienced first hand it becomes known. Learning comes by way of doing, living and experiencing.
