What this power is I cannot say;
all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only
when a man is in that state of mind in which he know exactly what he wants
and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it."
~Alexander Graham Bell
Get focused! What is it that has been lingering along with all of the other things in your life? That one thing that has just been hanging there.
Well, as we move in to Autumn and try to stretch the lingering days of summer just a little longer, think about your 'thing'.
Alexander here is really talking about a passionate focus. But maybe yours isn't so passionate right now. Maybe you need a little boost in that direction. Because sometimes it only takes a little tweak to change your whole life. When you are excited, the people around you get excited, your family, your coworkers, friends or someone on the street who receives a smile because you just can't hold one back.
For me, spreading the word about a healthy lifestyle really makes a difference. Showing people how to make little changes that might save them the inconvenience of medication or discomfort down the road. Add to that some exercise with fun attached and most people find a vigor for life that they forgot was possible.
So...maybe you choose art or yoga or walking, a 10k run or triathlon, Egyptian hieroglyphic studies or other ancient cultures, dust off that 'thing' and get focused. It just might make you smile!
In that state of mind! ~j
