While the concept “Sow a thought, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap a character; Sow a character, and you reap a destiny” is popular among Western cultures, people of Eastern cultures believe that “Man proposes, God disposes” and it is God that designs their destiny. To Adam Khoo, people’s destiny will change when they master their thinking.
As a habit passed on from generations to generations, a majority of people from Eastern cultures believe that each individual has his or her own destiny which can never be changed by no means. As a result, they normally cite their destiny or some other supernatural figure for every of their failure and hold a strong belief that the success or failure of their performances lies in the hands of no one else but God. Adam Khoo – a child who was expelled from school at grade 3 and became a Singaporean millionaire at the age of 26 – however, believes that individuals have the ability to design their own fate. This young president found himself the key to success when he claimed people have to master their thinking.
We may find the same old pictures of our failures through the analysis and examples of the author of Master your mind Design your destiny when reading the book. It will be a surprise for readers to know the legend and also the soul of Apple, Steven Job, turned out to be an orphan with no qualifications and possessions, or the Queen of Television – Oprah Winfrey – was discriminated against her skin color, abused and abandoned, or Harland Sanders – the original founder of KFC – lost his father when he was a little boy, failed at the age of 60 and was refused 1009 times before he established a global brand. The question is how they could achieve complete success after their falls despite the unfairness of life while the structure of human brains is almost the same.
This makes it clear that the real success in life is not simply money or career. It is not any supernatural figure that creates our fate, but it is the results of the thinking and actions of our own. In the book, the author also pointed out the law of emotions and their impacts on people’s success. Adam Khoo especially suggested regulations for how to program our mind so that each individual can apply appropriately in his or her own situation.
Nothing is impossible. Start your own journey for success; it may be late but never give up. Do it today by reading Master your mind Design your destiny.
