“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” - Earl Nightingale
Earl was adept in the science of reality making.
One of the greater lessons I picked up from Earl was that nearly every person in history thought of themself to be the first to discover the keys to creating reality. When what really happened was those individuals learned the keys inherently from watching others.
According to Napoleon Hill, Earl’s mentor, there are two distinct places where new ideas come from:
- The observation of someone else (someone already doing what you want to do)
- And from the realm of creative potential, where conscious thought is stored and accessible to everyone at any time.
Earl, Napoleon, Carnegie and other great successes agree that the realm of creative potential is the birthright of all; and has made many into the reality makers that change history!
But not all of us are fortunate enough to have a mentor in the exact industry we want to be in; so we have to learn from watching from afar. But even if given direct tutelage, time has shown that we will credit these teachings to our individual intelligence.
So how do you utilize the lessons from Earl and Napoleon to create your own reality, while still crediting those that came before you?
Simple. Just remember this quote by Heraclitus:
“The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become.”
