Common Weakness

"The most common weakness of all human beings is the habit 
of leaving their minds open to the negative influences of other people."

-Napoleon Hill

There are plenty of times when we all get excited about this great idea, just to be let down by the way others respond to it. Too many times we allow others to tell us how they feel and it ruins our bliss. When we are inspired by something and we believe in it, then really that is all that matters. Why do we allow others to influence us?

People will influence our entire lives if we let them. How come we don't value our own opinion the most? How come we can let other people change our feelings? We must become secure enough in our decision making. We should be self confident to the point where no one can change our minds. We are truly capable of anything we choose.If you can imagine it, then you can conceive it. Our thoughts manifest, whether it is our desires or our fears. Scientists have shown that thoughts are measured as vibrational frequencies which transmit signals. If you can see it in your mind, you will see it in reality. So if you are given inspired thought, trust your own instincts. Does it feel right to you? If so, then go for it! And don't let any one's negative thoughts get in your way. Don't let anyone make you feel different about your goals and dreams. They say Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before perfecting the light bulb! 10,000 times! There were many people who did not believe in him. But he did. He believed in his own ideas and transformed the world! His friends thought he was crazy and even had him evaluated in a mental institution for his belief of sending sound waves to where people could talk to each other from miles and miles apart. Edison then invented the telephone and the radio! His friends thought he was crazy until they saw his inventions! But he didn't let that discourage him. He continued for years, knowing that he had great ideas. He revolutionized the world! The same is true with Henry Ford. People laughed at his idea of a horseless wagon. It seemed impossible to all but one man. But he had the idea, saw it in his mind, and made it happen. Vehicles are all over the world now, and many people could not imagine living without one! We are responsible for our own success or failure.

So no matter what anyone tells you, if you have an inspired thought or idea, stick with it! Most of all, don't give up on your dream. Persistence and determination are the key to reaching our goals. Anything is possible. Believe in yourself and great things will happen!
