Principle 1.4: Everything You Experience Today Is the Result of Choices You Have Made in the Past

Everything you experience in life,  both internally and externally – is the result of how you have responded to a previous event. 
Event: You are given a #200,000 bonus.
Response: You spend it on clubbing.
Outcome: You are broke
Event: You are given a #200,000 bonus.
Response: You invest it in a lucrative business.

Outcome: You have an increased net worth.

You only have control over three things in your life: the thought you think; the images you visualize, and the actions  you take (your behaviour). How you use these three things determine everything you experience. If you don’t like what you are producing and experiencing, you have to change your responses. Change your negative thoughts to positive ones. Change what your daydream about. Change your habits . Change what you read. Change your friends (the bad ones). Change how you talk.
