"The outer conditions of a person's life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs"
- James Lane Allen
About this Quote
This quote by James Lane Allen recommends that our external situations are a reflection of our internal beliefs. Our beliefs form our ideas, attitudes, and actions, which in turn shape our external environment. For example, if we believe that we are capable of attaining our objectives, we will be more likely to take action and work hard to accomplish them. On the other hand, if our company believe that we are not efficient in attaining our objectives, we will be less most likely to do something about it and may not achieve them. For that reason, our external conditions are a reflection of our inner beliefs. This quote motivates us to have a look at our inner beliefs and to make certain that they are favorable and empowering. By doing so, we can create positive external conditions in our lives.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures"
