The Prepared Mind



What will you do when opportunity waltzes into your life? If it's ever happened, if it's ever come knocking, you know that there is generally very little warning, and that you can either seize it or not, but decisions need to be taken very quickly. Arthur Brisbane wrote that opportunity comes like a snail, and once it has passed you it changes into a fleet rabbit and is gone. And while taking the decisions the opportunity offers may not be so hard, what is often much harder is a two-fold issue:
  1. being prepared in the sense that your inner mindset is flexible enough to accomodate such rapid, unexpected events
  2. being prepared in the sense that while you have been hoping and waiting for such an opportunity to arrive at your doorstep, you have been creating it, by honing your skills, augmenting your knowledge, increasing your talents: in other words, you have been working for such a moment to arrive without knowing whether it ever would, by enriching yourself in all ways possible
Louis Pasteur said: Chance favors the prepared mind.

How are you preparing your mind?



For much more about getting to know yourself, about the meaning of your life, about being aware, about doubt and moving forward and the way your thoughts and feelings about those subjects influence you and what to do about it, about inner well-being, inner growth and joy, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self, available at Amazon as paperback or e-book for Kindle.

From the Description on Amazon:

Ask anyone, whatever their circumstances, if their life is vibrant, fulfilling, harmonious and happy. An honest reply is likely to be 'no', because to answer a truthful 'yes' is no mean feat. Only to grow psychologically and emotionally is not enough. And only to grow spiritually is not enough either. All three dimensions need to be developed in order to realize your full potential. If you are willing to assume total responsibility for the self and to start what is an on-going journey, you will quickly begin to glimpse the first fruits of the ultimate goal: inner well-being, freedom, peace, harmony and joy. This book sets out the pathway to self-mastery and self-discovery and walking that pathway will be the most exciting adventure of your life.

Rewiring the Soul' provides a user-friendly roadmap for personal transformation. Using conversational style, it guides the reader to an understanding of life's problems and how they can be resolved, deliberately including the reader's connection to his own soul and spiritual growth. Based on common sense and the author's work as an integral psychotherapist as well as lessons gleaned from teaching and personal experiences, all interwoven with current findings from neuroscience, positive psychology, quantum physics and Buddhism, 'Rewiring the Soul' signposts the path to resolving everyday life and its problems while converging with the inner quest for connection with the soul. This process allows life to take on a revolutionary new meaning: resolving personal and interpersonal issues while keeping the inner connection to the soul in mind leads to unprecedented growth that is simply not possible if psycho-emotional matters and spiritual concerns are not combined.
