“Buckminster Fuller said, ‘You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.’
There is so much going on in the world today that people react against. They put time, money, energy and emotion into fighting people, the economy, government, illegal drugs and so much more.
They put this same kind of energy into fighting their personal demons, their lack and poverty, their poor health, romance problems, family issues, their sad lives and lackluster careers.
What You Resist Persists
What you resist persists. Whatever you give energy to grows. None of the USA’s war on anything ever made a significant difference. It seemed to only exacerbate the problems. You have to stop fighting.
Fuller said, ‘build a new model, one that makes the existing model obsolete.’ A simple dictionary definition of obsolete means ‘no longer produced, used. Out of date.’ Expired is a good word.
What do you do with expired food or a pair of worn out shoes. Most likely you give it away, or throw it out. My guess is you don’t spend too much time concentrating on it, but I could be wrong.
Life Is Not Governed By Circumstances
You get rid of it without fanfare or drama. Without celebration. You let go of it and replace it with something newer. ‘Build a new model that makes the old one obsolete’. That is what Gandhi did.
When fighting oppression he didn’t use violence or hate. He used peace, love, meditation and mobilized millions against forces who had invaded his country. He did something no one expected.
Because it was new and unexpected they didn’t even know how to combat it. They were used to battles. What do they do with this. Gandhi prevailed. Imagine that! Gandhi presented a new model.
Life Is Governed By Attitude
Use your imagination. Build something new. Focus on what you want. In your mental movie theater imagine yourself already in possession of it. Feel what that feels like. It is yours right now!
Don’t focus on your bills, your poor health, your broken relationship, how much you hate your job or how your career is stalled, focus on what you DO want. Focus on the good you want to enjoy!
Napoleon Hill stated, ‘Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.’ You can live your dreams instead of your disappointments. You need to learn to condition your mind.
You Are Where Your Thoughts Brought You
You need to learn to condition you mind for success. Do that and you can be, do and have anything you desire. Stop fighting and start creating. Create what you want and believe it can be yours!
If you firmly believe it, and you truly want it, you will find a way to make it happen. When you condition your mind for success your mind alerts you to resources and opportunities. It is time to act!
It is time to get your mind on your side! Your life is a refection of the thinking you have been doing up until now. Thought creates reality and thought precedes action. Thoughts becomes things!
You Will Be Where Your Thoughts Take You
All human productions first began as an idea. Everything begins as a thought. Think success day and night and it will come to you. Think it now, as if you have it, in the present, not off in the future. NOW!
The mind doesn’t now today from tomorrow. It doesn’t care if it is a penny or a million dollars. It doesn’t care whether you are positive or negative. It doesn’t care if you think you can or you think you can’t
Whatever you program your mind for is what you get back. Whatever your mind has been programmed for is what you have been getting. Don’t fight. Build a new model. Create something grand! Your mind is your singular most powerful tool! Use it!
Make Your Thoughts Work For You
Make the old lifestyle obsolete. Create an entirely new one to your liking. You can if you believe you can. Decide today whether or not you will. If you can conceive it and believe it you can achieve it. Create what you want by imagining it first in your mind. Create it!
Think about it day and night. Affirm it. Feel it. Celebrate it. Be grateful about it. Live within as if you already have everything you need. Repeat these affirmations frequently throughout each day. Repetition builds habit; habit conditions the mind. Make it work in you favor. It will do what you want when and only when you take control of it. Most people don’t. Don’t be one of them!” Rex Sikes
