If you’re having to wake up just to tell yourself to go back to sleep again, thinking you have to go through this again. Asking, when will it stop?
You’re so tired, so frustrated, so devastated that it seems the universe conspires against you.
Every corner, something bad is waiting for you. In your work, in your family, in your health, you seem like a failure.
Yes, it happens to most of us…
I remember a story from a book I read “Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude” by W.Stone and inspired by the late Napoleon Hill, it goes like this…
There is a wonderful little story about a minister who, one Saturday morning, was trying to prepare his sermon under difficult conditions. His wife was out shopping. It was a rainy day and his young son was restless and bored, with nothing to do. Finally, in desperation, the minister picked up an old magazine and thumbed through it until he came to a large, brightly colored picture. It showed a map of the world. He tore the page from the magazine, ripped it into little bits, and threw the scraps all over the living room floor with the words:
“Johnny, if you can put this all together, I’ll give you a quarter.” The preacher thought this would take Johnny most of the morning. But within ten minutes there was a knock on his study door. It was his son with the completed puzzle. The minister was amazed to see Johnny finished so soon, with the pieces of paper neatly arranged and the map of the world back in order. “Son, how did you get that done so fast?” the preacher asked.
“Oh,” said Johnny, “it was easy. On the other side there was a picture of a man. I just put a piece of paper on the bottom, put the picture of the man together, put a piece of paper on top, and then turned it over. I figured that if I got the man right, the world would be right.”
Remember, “If the man is right, his world would be right”, it starts within you.
