Life is an inside out game.  Through our own volition or will we can create a life we would love living.  Take a look at this quote by James Allen from his book “As a Man Thinketh” and ask yourself if you are living according to Environment, Circumstance, and Chance or by Spirit and Will.

You will be what you will to be;

Let failure find its false content

In that poor word, “Environment”,

But Spirit scorns it, and is free.

 

It masters time, it conquers space;

It cowes that boastful trickster, Chance,

And bids the tyrant Circumstance

Uncrown, and fill a servant’s place.

 

The human Will, that force unseen,

The offspring of a deathless Soul,

Can hew a way to any goal,

Though walls of granite intervene.

 

Be not impatient in delays

But wait as one who understands;

When Spirit rises and commands

The gods are ready to obey.
