VIEW THE IMAGE ABOVE FOR THE CORE MESSAGE IN ''THE POWER SERIES-
THE PRESENCE OF MIND FACTOR !
It's wise to reflect on the ''past'' just from the perspective of gaining insight into the ''lessons'' and being watchful about the next step you take but it is detrimental to be paranoid about the past or the future ! When you're driving a car, it's important to get a view of what's behind your car through the ''rear view mirror'' once in a way and through the ''mirrors on the side'' so that you can stay alert, at the wheel as you proceed forward...! But if you keep gazing into those mirrors too often, you are sure to get distracted and you will lose your power over the ''steering wheel, the brakes, the gear, the clutch'' everything in that moment and you are sure to meet with an accident. Similarly, if you're driving your car, in haste to reach your future destination, you are again bound to meet with an accident. This form of self-created stress is ''a state of powerlessness''!
Let's say you're in a 'Business meeting' now- just focus on ''this meeting in the present moment'' and give your best...That's your power ! And stop thinking about the ''next meeting'' or for that matter ''what went wrong'' in the previous meeting- this will make you feel powerless in your current meeting and things may go wrong again! Apply it to any area of your life ! When we lose our ''presence of mind'' in business or in any other area of life that's when we loose ''our power'' completely and we commit blunders !
THIS TAKES US TO THE POINT THAT ''INNER POWER'' IS ABOUT USING ''ONE'S WISDOM'' AND NOT MERELY ABOUT ''BANKING ON INTELLIGENCE ''!
