Two ways to look at the world: You are the program, or you are the programmer. Is your fate determined by outside events, by your external environment OR is the primary driving force creating, molding, shaping your life, your success, your destiny inside you? Which controls, which determines your life’s outcomes? Your environment or your “In-vironment”? i.e. what goes on inside your head, the stories you tell yourself about your experiences, how you interpret things, what you choose to believe is possible for you.
Whatever answer you give, it will be true for you.
“People blame their environment. There is only one person to blame – and only one – themselves.” – Robert Collier, 1885-1950, Secret of the Ages/Riches within Your Reach
“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, It is not in luck or chance, Or the help of others; It is in yourself alone.” – Orison Swett Marden, 1848-1924
“You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events … how we interpret them … that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.” – Tony Robbins, Unlimited Power/Awaken the Giant Within
As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
