Most of the times, we learn without will. That means, we learn by accidentally stumbling onto something, some person, some event, some discussion, some gossip, some crap. Everything enters our mind.
The problem is most of us don’t even think if it is getting out or not. And usually, the ones which create the strongest impression in the mind are the ones that are clutter. Which is stronger? A rat’s stinking smell or a beautiful flower’s aroma? I’d bet it is the rat’s.
So, to get rid of clutter is a great challenge by itself. We need to constantly use the rat killer.And it’s not enough, we also have to find the flowers for aroma. This whole thing takes effort, perseverance and a strong passion. And it’s upon us to decide.
Boy, I want to live a life full of aroma. I will plough my field, water my plants and harvest my crop but I wont let the rats in no-matter-what!
So I need continuous motivation or re-inforcement that I’m doing right by not choosing the rat-life. For that I need to constantly embrace myself with the beautiful thoughts, the positive thoughts, thoughts that will help me in my long journey, thoughts THAT ARE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO KILL THE RATS!
That positivity comes from confidence. Confidence comes from learning from people who have done it before. Simple.
