48 laws of power- Law 25
Do not accept the roles that society foists on you. Re-create yourself by forging a new identity, one that commands attention and never bores the audience. Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define if for you.- your power will be enhanced and your character will seem larger than life.
Discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes. the greatest discovery o f this generation is that people can change their lives by changing the direction of their thoughts.
who you are or where you are is not permanent. you can change where you are by changing who you are by changing what you feed your mind. if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. it is not that you are worthless, powerless, an addict, destitute, struggling, frustrated that keeps you from living the greatest life that God has in mind for you.
it is that you think that you can not do anything that prevents you from doing something . it is not what you do, it is who you are. it is not what you have that determines the extent of your impact, it is what you use. you have power in your relationships, in your ability to speak and be heard, in your capacity to protest and be an influence, in your power to touch lives personally and impact the course of history.
Re- create yourself, write history: every ordinary man can make history.
