The Importance of Conquering Yourself Rather Than the World

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 185

We all want to succeed and have all that we desire, but we cannot achieve this success by conquering and controlling others. This is a fallacy that gets us into wars, arguments, etc. We think if we are the ones in command then we must be assured of success. The problem is that we can't really conquer everything or others, the only thing we have any control over is ourselves. Once you choose to recognize this you will learn you can only control your reactions to others, your thoughts about things, and all of this is what will create your reality.

Can only control your self

This is the big secret to success, and generally for overall happiness. We really cannot control anything else. We think we can get our pets to do our bidding, but they will still pee on the carpet no matter how much we yell at them. We can have the illusion of conquering and controlling, but in all reality all that we can conquer and control is ourselves.

You control your reactions

The first thing we need to learn that we have control over is how we react to any specific situation. I cannot control if you choose to yell at me or not, but I can control if I choose to yell back, get angry, allow what you say to upset me, etc. This is where the true power to conquer comes in, not through controlling others but through controlling how we react to what others do. Life will do what it wants with us, we have the power to choose what effect it has on it when things do not go as we plan. Use that control and you begin to conquer the most important thing, your life.

You control your thoughts

The key to being able to control your reactions is to learn to conquer your thoughts. Our thoughts lead to our actions, and if we do not want other people's actions to effect us in a negative manner we have to control our thoughts. You can tell me all the negative things you want about me, but the only way they can have a negative effect on me is if I choose to adopt those thoughts as my own. We have control over the thoughts we think, and no matter what others may do or say, our thoughts are still ours. They may be able to physically effect us, but they cannot go into your brain and make you physically change a thought, that is something only you can control. Conquer your thoughts and no one can ever control you again.

You create your reality

And learning to conquer your thoughts is most important because ultimately our thoughts create our reality. If we want success and to have all the abundance and prosperity we desire, it all starts with our thoughts. If you want financial success you need to think like you have financial success. It is all about knowing you have what you want before you can actually see it in your possession. When you conquer your thoughts in this way you conquer the world.
