An author worships readers. We woo them, tempt them and, if desperate enough, we stalk them (through marketing efforts).
Seldom do we herald them. Thanks to Nathalie Foy ( nathaliefoy.wordpress.com ) of Toronto, Canada, I present today’s quotation that is all about THE READER!

“There comes a point in life, it seems to me, where you have to decide whether you’re a Person of Letters or merely someone who loves books, and I’m beginning to see that the book lovers have more fun. Persons of Letters have to read things like Candide or they’re a few letters short of the whole alphabet; book lovers, meanwhile, can read whatever they fancy.”

“Our life is the creation of our mind.”
To close out this series, I am using the words of others to point out truisms–about the power of the mind–that have spanned all time. Look back to Part 1 and review the psychological laws. My hope is that you become aware of what you are attracting to yourself and that you use that awareness to improve your situation.
Through the power of your mind.
The Law of Attraction is a universal law that says all your thoughts, positive and negative, vibrate at a certain frequency and like attracts like. In other words, you get what you ask for – the frequency of your thoughts attract things to your life vibrating at the same frequency. This happens whether you are conscious of it or not.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Get out and get busy.”
“If you change your thoughts, words, actions, and your attitudes, your mind will update its rules according to the data it has gathered.”
–Susan Gray, author of the book Turn Your Thoughts into Money
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

The laws of psychology teach, if you want to change your world, change your mind set.
Want 2013 to be a good year? Then prepare for it! Make it so!
“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”
“It’s not the will to win that matters. Everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
–Paul “Bear” Bryant
“Nobody’s a natural. You work hard to get good, and then work to get better.”
“Life is like a combination lock; your job is to find the right numbers, in the right order, so you can have anything you want.”
“Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
Proactive? or paranoid? Me, I am always paranoid first, it usually saves time.
