4 Powerful Mind Principles to Control Your Destiny

4 Powerful Mind Principles to Control Your Destiny   by Michael D. Pollock

The word "resolve" has been showing up in my space quite a
bit lately. I've no doubt it's a definite "sign of the
times." I'd like to spend a few minutes to discuss this
word, what it might mean to you, and offer you some
principles that can positively affect your life experience. defines the noun form of "resolve" as:
* Firmness of purpose; resolution.
* A determination or decision; a fixed purpose.
* A formal resolution made by a deliberative body.

There are some pretty powerful words in that definition.
"Firmness of purpose," "decision" and "deliberative body"
are the three words/phrases that jump out at me.

Although there's nothing mind shattering about the
definition itself, it begs this question: do you have your
own resolve for your life?

Asked another way, are you deliberately creating your own
life through decisions shaped by a firmness of purpose? If
you are, I'd suggest you hold the key to living a joyful,
prosperous and fulfilling life. If you're not, well that's
okay too . . . or is it?

Some 4O years ago, U.S. President John F. Kennedy stated:
"Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our
history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to
blind suspicions and emotions." Those words seem as
today as they were in the 1960s.

If your resolve is to be "master of your history" and to
"control your own destiny without blind suspicions and
emotions," the following principles should prove very

Principle 1
Recognize that you can come from a place of fear, or you
can come from a place of peace. It's your choice. If you
don't consciously choose peace, you're more likely to come
from fear simply out of habit.

Action to take - Practice finding peace within yourself.
Spend 30 minutes each day in silence. Get comfortable,
close your eyes and breath deeply. Focus only on your
breaths, counting the in and out movements. Quiet your
mind. Peace lies beneath the meandering chatter of your

Principle 2
Your power exists only in the now. Last year is gone. Last
month, last week, last night, 1 second ago are all gone.
They do not exist, except in your memory. They are
meaningless, except for the meaning you give them.

Likewise, tomorrow, next week, next month, etc. do not
exist, except in your imagination, which you can control.

Action to take - Be here now. Always. Concentrate on what
you're doing now. Remember, now is all that exists, and so,

now is where your power exists. Recite "be here now."

Principle 3
Your thoughts and emotions are creative forces. The
thoughts and feelings you choose to focus upon most
consistently will eventually manifest in your physical
reality. If you consistently focus on thinking and feeling
prosperous, you will create that in your reality.

Action to take - In each moment, get a grip on what you're
creating. Decide what you want to have or experience, and
create that, both mentally and emotionally. Experience it
as if it exists now. Bring the experience into the now.

Principle 4
Whatever you resist, you cause to persist. As you resist
any undesired experience, you focus your thoughts and
emotions upon that experience. By focusing on the
experience, you only create more of it.

Action to take - Embrace your undesired experiences, for
you can not know what you want unless you know what you
don't want. One can not exist without the other.
Continually shift your focus to what you do want.

In his book "Mind Power Into the 21st Century," John Kehoe
explains: "Your mind is like a garden . . . and you are its
master gardener. You can cultivate this garden, or you can
ignore it . . . But make no mistake: you will reap the
harvest for your work or neglect."

Cultivate your garden. Resolve to master your history, and
control your destiny by incorporating these 4 principles
into your daily life.

It's your life! Make it great.
