My Mantra

The Mind is everything. All that we are at present is the outcome of our thinking. As we think, so we become. Once we begin to understand this, we shall come to realize the effects of our mind upon our lives - our body, our work, our family and society. Our present condition is the outcome of our past thinking patterns and our future shall be based upon our present mind-set. The right mental attitude is necessary for success in life. Master your Mind, Master your Life!
