“A BOOMERANG is an instrument
Which comes back and may
Wound the hand that throws it”
The ability of the mind to feed upon that which we supply it or which is forced upon it through our environment makes it necessary for us to select our environment carefully with the aim of supplying the mind with suitable materials out of which to carry on its work of achieving our purpose in life (definite chief aim)
As some of us already know, we absorb the material through which we think from our surrounding environment. That is why environment covers a very broad field. It consists of the people we associate with, the books we read, the community we live, the clothes we wear, the songs we sing or listen to, and most importantly, the religious and intellectual training we get before the age of fourteen years.
So, the purpose of analyzing the environment in this career and or talent lesson is to show us its relationship to the personality we are or want to develop, and the importance of guarding it carefully so that the influence will give us the required materials through which we may attain our objective (definite chief aim) in our career and or talent pursuit in life.
NOTE THIS: if you do not like your environment please, change it.
Steps to follow in order to have an environment that will influence your career and or talent pursuit positively:--
1. You have to create in your mind an exact, clear picture of the kind of environment which you believe could help you attain your purpose (definite objective) in life. And you should concentrate your mind upon this picture until its actualization comes through.
Do not neglect this because, it should be the first thing to be observed in your plans for the achievement of success, and if you fail to observe it, there is room for slim success except by chance. As an experienced entrepreneur, success seldom comes by chance.
2. Choose your daily associates carefully because, they constitute one of the most important and influential part of your environment, and may work for your progress or your retrogression based on the nature of those associates. That is why it is necessary for you to select those who are in sympathy with your aims and ideas, represented by your DESIRE as your most intimate daily associates.
Make sure that the mental attitude of these associates inspires you with enthusiasm, self-confidence, determination and ambition. Anything out of this should be ignored.
3. Finally, one should be aware of every word spoken within his/her hearing, every site that reaches your eyes, and every sense impression that one receives through any of the five senses because, these influences your thought as easily as you may think. This being true, can you not see the importance of controlling the environment in which you live and work?
Can you not see the importance of reading books that deals with subject related to your purpose (definite objective)? Can you also not see the importance of talking to people who are in sympathy with your aim, and who will be happy to encourage you and inspire you toward the attainment of your purpose in life?
We all should understand that the world in which we live now is known as the “twentieth century” leading scientist of the world agreed that nature have been creating, in millions of years our present civilized environment.
And the influence it has on most of us affects our career and or talent pursuit either positively or negatively. So, you have to choose your environment very carefully so that the influence it will have on you will be observed as having a positive impact in pursuit of your career and or talent in life. Choose your environment carefully.
