Their mental forces pull a little while on this thing, abandon it, then pull a little on the next whim or fancy and abandon that. There is no steady pull or exercise of drawing power on any one thing.”

This quote is as true now as it was in the day it was written more than a century ago.

Most people haven’t really understood it. It’s not about thinking happy thoughts or meditating on a ferrari.

It’s about your own quality of energy. You can be forcing yourself to think “positive” yet have a completely negative energy that will only attract negativity into your life.

So, it’s less about the CONTENT of the thoughts, and much more about the QUALITY of them. What is their energy? What is your overall energy behind the thoughts?

And then the goal is to maintain that quality of energy throughout your everyday life. If you are only keeping it during 20 minutes in the morning in some exercise, then it won’t have any long lasting changes.

You want to maintain it for your whole day everyday. This permanent shift of energy is the only way to change what you attract to your life.
