…Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and, by means with which no man is familiar, these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.” -Napoleon Hill
I love Mondays and I believe that everyone can learn to love them too. Monday is a power day. It’s a day that sets the tone for the rest of your week, and while many people struggle on Mondays, I don’t blame it on the Monday, I blame it on their lack of preparation from the day before. I blame it on a bad attitude upon waking and an attitude of entitlement. My challenge to you today is to see Mondays as a day full of opportunities instead of obligations.
My Monday is my opportunity to blaze my week with success and accomplishment. What I do today significantly influences how fluidly the rest of my week goes. Most importantly, the thoughts that I think, even from the first minute of waking, on a Monday, significantly affect the outcome of my day. As Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds…these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.” You, and only you, have full control over the thoughts you think, and you especially have control over what thoughts dominate your brain (and thereby your life).
Take ownership of your Monday thoughts today and own the day.
