"THE ART OF CHANGING YOURSELF" (by:WILFERD PETERSON)

"THE ART OF CHANGING YOURSELF"

Life is constantly pounding you from the outside with millions of
hammer blows, but you have the last word as to how those blows
will change you.

Man alone, of all creatures of earth, can change his own pattern.
Man alone is architect of his destiny.

William James declared that the greatest revolution in his
generation was the discovery that human beings, by changing the
inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of
their lives.

History and literature are full of examples of the miracle of
inner change -- Paul on the Damascus Road...Ernest and the Great
Stone Face...the hunchback prince, of the Persian story, who
became straight and tall by standing each day before a statue of
himself made straight...

You cannot climb uphill by thinking downhill thoughts. If your
world is gloomy and hopeless, it is because you are gloomy and
hopeless. YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR MIND TO CHANGE YOUR WORLD.

Change demands self-discipline. Command yourself and make
yourself do what needs to be done.

Change requires the substituting of new habits for old. You
mould your character and your future by your thoughts and acts.

Change can be advanced by associating with men and women with
whom you can walk among the stars. Meet, mingle and make friends
with those who have the upward urge.

Change can be inspired by selecting your own spiritual ancestors
from among the great of all the ages. You can practice the
kindliness of Lincoln, the devotion of Schweitzer, the vision of
Franklin...

Change can be achieved by changing your environment. Let go of
lower things and reach for the higher. Surround yourself with
the best in books, music and art. Listen to the greatest
speakers. Hang on the walls of your home portraits of the men
you most admire.

Change can be realised through conscious evolution. Moment by
moment, day by day, concentrate on becoming the man you want to
be.

Change can be accomplished most of all through the power of
prayer, because with God all things are possible.
