A few years ago I found myself feeling a little directionless. In my search for encouragement I came across a book by Wayne Dyer called “The Power of Intention”. While I read the book, I journaled pages and pages of encouraging quotes that spoke to me then, & I knew would speak to me again when I needed them.
I am so glad that I recorded these quotes, because as I was reading through my journal this morning I came across them and instantly felt encouraged and energized by each passage. I also know that others may appreciate the advice, as we all sometimes need a little outside encouragement. All of the following quotes come from “The Power of Intention” by Wayne Dyer, I hope you find them as inspirational as I do.
Treat yourself as if you already are who you’d like to become.
If we become what we think about, and what we think about is what’s wrong with the world, and how angry and ashamed and fearful we are, it stands to reason that we’ll act on those unkind thoughts and become what we’re thinking about.
When the only thing you have to think about is yourself and how you appear to others, you’ve distanced yourself from the power of intention.
Remember, when you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself as someone who needs to judge.
An uncomplicated life with fewer intrusions tolerated, in a simple setting, allows your creative genius to surface and express itself.
And my favorite quote, which is not from “The Power of Intention” but it is reflective of core of the message that these quotes discuss:
Sow a thought and you reap an action;
Sow an act and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit and you reap a character;
Sow a character and you reap a destiny.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
