There are so many good resources out there to help guide us on our journey in life. When we start out all we have is what our family and closest friends know. They create for you a resource pool that feeds your imagination. The belief system until somewhere around 10 or 11 or your early teens (if you’re lucky). You start to question the validity. You begin to wonder what is real and what is made up. Finally, you make it into being a young adult and start off on your solo journey in life. You begin to detach from what you know and the people that used to surround you are around a little less.
At some point, you realize the world is both huge and somehow small but there is an absolutely crazy amount of knowledge you don’t have. Not only is their knowledge for our times but there is the knowledge that has been building over thousands of years in civilizations and places you’ve never been or may never see.
MITM is meant to be that place that provides for you the next level resource pool to help you expand, but with a singular focus. We want to bring the best thinking and practices into one place that speaks to intentional personal growth and prosperity. Whether you’re in your late teens or well into adulthood there is always room for growth.
Before I forget I also want to share with you the inspiration behind the site domain name. It comes from a short poem written within one of my top 5 books, each of which have helped to shape and influence me as well as the structure of this site, but this one in particular was one of the first and it crystalized for me the profound impact thoughts have not only on your psyche but how the state of our lives are a reflection of those thoughts, and maybe more importantly, how to manage them in partnership with belief and live intentionally and create the outcomes you consciously choose.
The book is called As You Think by James Allen. (Link is to Amazon). The poem sets the tone for the book and goes like this:
Mind is the Master power that molds and makes, And we are Mind, and ever more we take the tool of thought, and shaping what we will, bring forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. We think in secret, and it comes to pass – Our world is but our looking glass. – James Allen
The team behind MITM is a collection of professionals, authors, and regular people who have lived, failed and learned. We have studied and carved off the fat of knowledge and distilled for our readers the fundamentals of growth and prosperity. In addition, we put a heavy emphasis on clarity of mind, both from the perspective of momentary mental clarity as well as creating opportunities for your future betterment. There are so many awesome online resources out there; plenty of opportunities to grow and improve.
You are capable of so much more! You likely just don’t know what it takes to get there. The resources within or referenced at MITM can help. From articles on meditation to living the yogic lifestyle or personal development, relationships to creating a wealth mindset, each of the articles here have been crafted to guide you to purposeful self-development in order to help you start unveiling that potential, not for the world but for yourself. When you begin to realize your own potential you’ll become contagious to yourself.
We are excited for you and are here to encourage your growth. Your Mind is the Master of your destiny. Slow your body and mind down. Be intentional with your thoughts and actions and create for yourself the life you’ve imagined!
