“There is enough latent force in a Maximite torpedo shell to tear a warship to pieces. But the amount of force or explosive power in one of these terrific engines of destruction could never be ascertained by any ordinary concussion.
Children could play with it for years, pound it, roll it about, and do all sorts of things with it; the shell might be shot through the walls of an ordinary building, without arousing its terrible dynamic energy. It must be fired from a cannon, with terrific force, through a foot or so of steel plate armor, before it meets with resistance great enough to evoke its mighty explosive power.

“Put every negative thought out of your mind once and for all. The man who can control his thought can have and do what he wishes to have and to do; everything is his for the asking.

If, however, he chooses to turn and run away, the shield loses its power and he’s suddenly vulnerable.
The lesson: GO STRAIGHT AT YOUR CHALLENGES!! Do so, and you’re empowered.

Ok, so today I celebrate a half-century of my human experience and I’m grateful for my parents’ bad decisions that led to the occasion. I’ll share the most important thing I’ve learned in 50 years with the only regret being that I learned it too recently. Whether we are aware of it or not, we assign the meaning to all things that happen to us in our lives. With that power, everything is painted just the way we want it to be. Good or bad, we are getting exactly what we want or need in every moment regardless of the blame we put on our external circumstances. – Albert Pellissier
