“A person only begins to become the person he wants to be when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life.” said James Allen. The word “revile” means to condemn, despise, berate. I did not however have to look up the word “whine” because I have done enough of that myself in my life to know what that is. Someone once asked me, “Eric, can I have some cheese with that whine.”
When we whine and revile we give power to that which we revile and whine about. We are no longer in charge of our lives. I like what George Bernard Shaw said; “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, they make them.”
So how do we do it? Emmet Fox tells us that; “you can build any quality into your mentality by meditating upon that quality every day. If you seem to yourself to be lacking in certain necessary strength, ask God to give you what you need and He will. Decide today to create the circumstances you want and you will be living your very best life!
