Tesla was never bitter: “Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents.”
This is a really healthy attitude, because getting angry about "the competition" only prevents you from moving forward, and continuing to enjoy what you do.
Accept there are many others following similar paths to you, and if you focus on your own goal you won't have time to be concerned about what they're doing.
“Most persons are so absorbed in the contemplation of the outside world that they are wholly oblivious to what is passing on within themselves.”
Paying attention to your own thoughts and feelings is the only way to remain unaffected by the actions of others. Learn to ignore bad news and bad behavior, because maintaining your own sense of peace and balance enables you to do more good than if you joined in with the mood of negativity.
“What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth, and the elimination of that fanatic devotion to exalted ideals of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife... Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment...”
When we begin to look for similarities in others, instead of differences, we stop comparing ourselves and judging - both useless actions which keep us away from peace and harmony.
The Power of Your Mind and The Law of Attraction
“Instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.”
Tesla knew the value of trusting in your own intuition. Making time for relaxation will always bring you more rewards than chewing a problem over and over in your conscious mind.
“Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born.”
Keeping yourself busy is how you become overwhelmed - and achieve nothing. Quiet time on your own is essential - not a luxury.
“When natural inclination develops into a passionate desire, one advances towards his goal in seven-league boots.”
This is the essence of the Law of Attraction - loving what you do, and focusing on how good that feels.
“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Or, in more complex detail:
“Nature may reach the same result in many ways. Like a wave in the physical world, in the infinite ocean of the medium which pervades all, so in the world of organisms, in life, an impulse started proceeds onward, at times, may be, with the speed of light, at times, again, so slowly that for ages and ages it seems to stay, passing through processes of a complexity inconceivable to men, but in all its forms, in all its stages, its energy ever and ever integrally present.
A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature.
In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a universe.”
Being conscious of your thoughts allows you to choose your reality.
“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”
Believe in the infinite wisdom of the Universe that you have the ability to tap into - simply by relaxing, and allowing. Whatever you are wanting, the Universe is waiting to deliver to you. You can create unlimited possibilities purely through the power of your mind.
