    The Power of the Mind & How to Use It

    The Power of the Mind & How to Use It

    Listen to episode 584 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: The Power of the Mind & How to Use It. Edited and adapted from Leadership by George H. Knox.

    I *nspirational Podcast Excerpt* :The mind is the key to power and the source of all power — the open door to fame and immortality. The mind is also the greatest factor in the development of personality. It is the one power, and the only power, that dominates and controls you. It is the one indestructible agency that survives time. It cannot be weighed or measured. It outreaches a million worlds. It is as limitless as the universe and as boundless as eternity.

    In a mere instant, we can turn the mind back to the beginning of human history. Circumscribed by neither time nor space, its dwelling place is eternity, and in a single moment of flight, it can reach the most distant star, and then on and on and on.

    The Mindset to Win Life's Battles | Motivation Podcasts

    Listen to episode 583 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: The Mindset to Win Life’s Battles. Edited and adapted from How to Lick Our Fears by David V. Bush.

    *Motivation Podcast Excerpt* : Not many people believe in witches and goblins anymore, but plenty of us have, through fear, worry, and shyness, conjured up numerous devils to beset our road, to rob us of our happiness, and sink us into the rut of despair. Borrowed troubles, magnified worries, these are the modern devils which camp on nearly everyone’s trail, and block many a successful highway.

    What is there to fear? Nothing but fear. But thousands of us are haunted day and night by that particular devil of the imagination. Devils of worries, fear, and disappointment are barriers which only the mind can overcome.

    Devils, like our troubles, are mostly in our minds. If we mix up a witches’ brew of fear and worry, we shall sip a bitter cup of unhappiness indeed. Loss may become such a devil, it could drive us to suicide today, as it has done to thousands in the past. And yet loss may be a blessing in disguise, or an incentive to drive us to greater accomplishments. Whatever effect it has on us depends upon the state of our mind. Loss may be as vinegar to the taste and wormwood to the soul. Or loss may help us to make friends and lay the foundation for success or riches.

    Listen to episode 582 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: How to Overcome Your Fears. Edited and adapted from How to Lick Our Fears by David V. Bush.

    *Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Welcome to the Inspirational Living podcast, as special thank you to our new monthly patrons, Judith Ogedegbe, Jeri Neathery, and Andy Graham. Learn how you can become a patron for as little as $3 a month, to receive ad-free podcasts, full transcripts, and more, by visiting LivingHour.org/patron ( https://livinghour.org/patron ). Thank you. Today’s reading was edited and adapted from How to Lick Fear by David V. Bush, published in 1924.

    The common saying that you are making a mountain out of a molehill, contains more truth than poetry. When your imagination takes wings, and fancy runs wild, you can picture and anticipate more trouble in five minutes than you could actually bring upon yourself in a lifetime. Imagination can do almost anything: It can give us the right mental attitude for success, health, and happiness; but uncontrolled, it can build structures of doubt, sorrow, ill-health, and many a trouble.

    Most of the troubles we have are imagined. Our worst troubles never come. Whether our troubles are real or imaginary, there is one way to meet them and rise superior to them — one easy, sure way to knock every fear in the head and throw it out of your mental picture gallery. It is so simple that you will wonder why the human family has not been taught it from infancy.

    *Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Talk happiness. When things look dark, talk happiness. When things look bright, talk more happiness. When others are sad, insist on being glad. Talk happiness, and they will soon feel better.

    Talk happiness. It pays in every shape and form and manner. Give sunshine to others, and others will be more than pleased to give sunshine to you. Talk happiness, and your health will be better, your mind will be brighter, and your personality far more attractive. But the qualities that happiness will give to you, will also be given to those who have the pleasure to listen to you when you talk happiness.

    Inspirational Thoughts for Every-Day Life

    Listen to episode 580 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Inspirational Thoughts for Every-day Life. Edited and adapted from the work of Maltbie Davenport Babcock.

    *Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Welcome to the Inspirational Living podcast. A special thank you to our newest patron Jackie Cochran. Jackie now has access to ad-free podcasts, full transcripts, and our entire archive of over 550 podcasts. You can too, by visiting LivingHour.org/patron ( https://livinghour.org/patron ).

    Opportunities do not come with their value stamped upon them. Every one of them must be challenged. A day dawns, quite like other days. In it a single hour comes, quite like other hours. But in that day, and in that hour, the chance of a lifetime faces us. To face every opportunity of life thoughtfully and ask its meaning bravely and earnestly, is the only way to meet the supreme opportunities when they come, whether recognized or disguised.

    ---------------

    Many a good intention dies from inattention. If, through carelessness, indolence, or selfishness, a good intention is not put into effect, we have lost an opportunity, demoralized ourselves, and stolen from the pile of possible good. To be born and not fed, is to perish. To launch a ship and neglect it, is to lose it. To have a talent and bury it, is to live a wasted life. For in the end, we shall be judged not only by what we have done, but by what we could have done.

    *Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Live in a cheerful world, even if you have to create such a world in your own imagination. Resolve to be happy regardless of what comes. You cannot afford to be otherwise. Count everything joy. Meet everything in a spirit of joy, and expect everything to give you joy. By creating a cheerful world in your own imagination, you develop the tendency to a sunny disposition, and by meeting everything in an attitude of joy, you will soon meet only those things that naturally produce joy. Like does attract like. Much sunshine will gather more sunshine, and the happiest mind meets the most delightful experiences.

    When exceptions occur, pass them by as of no consequence, because they ARE of no consequence to you. You are interested only in happy events. Therefore, there is no reason whatever why you should pay any attention to the other kind. It is a fact that the less attention we pay to unpleasant conditions, the less unpleasantness we meet in life. That person who looks for the disagreeable everywhere, and expects to find it everywhere, will certainly find what they are looking for in most places, if not in all places. On the other hand, the person who expects only the pleasant will seldom find anything else. We attract what we think of the most.
