Theron Q Dumont quotes

The fact is, opportunity never seeks us, we must seek it.

Theron Q  Dumont, whose real name was William Walker Atkinson, was born in 1862 and died in 1932. In the early days of the New thought movement he was very influential and important figure in the New Thought Movement.

He wrote a great life changing books on New Thought, one being ” The Power of Concentration” a fantastic book on how to control your body, mind and emotions 

Success is a much talked about topic.

You can read thousands of books and blogs about this, all providing various tips on how to be successful based on their own experience, the results of research, their own experience, or the sum of experiences of people they have observed or interviewed.

There are also a lot of success quotes for business or life in general that are somehow meant to inspire or guide anyone who reads them.

However, many find success to be an elusive goal.

The reason it becomes elusive is most people aren’t sure about what they are running after.

Some keep themselves busy, thinking that filling all their hours in the day with activities would take them to “success.”

Some would come up with a plan, and change it over and over again until they feel it’s perfect enough to help them achieve their dreams. Were you able to spot what’s missing here?

It’s the fact that success has never been defined by these people who find it difficult to achieve.

If you want to be successful, the very first thing you should do is define what success is to you.

  • Is it becoming a millionaire before you reach your 30’s?
  • Is it having your own happy family and raising well-rounded children? 
  • Is it inventing your own product that would help solve people’s problems?
  • Is it becoming a recognized leader in your community or a respected manager at work?
  • I know for me as I have gotten older, it is not about the money or having “stuff” it is about being healthy, happy, and still having an active mind that I can do what I love to do and that is my website, where I can pay it forward and help other people, yes it is a passion of mine and that is what makes me happy and successful.

Only you can define what success is and when you’re able to do this, you will find that this goal isn’t as hazy or as elusive as before.

Know what success means to you then keep improving and moving towards your aim. Remember two of Theron Q. Dumont quotes:

“The secret of success is to try always to improve yourself no matter where you are or what your position.”

“I know that every man that is willing to pay the price can be a success.  The price is not in money, but in effort.”

Stop blindly chasing success. Pause and think what it means to you, then work your way towards it.

Theron Q Dumont Quotes

Everyone has two natures. One wants us to advance and the other wants to pull us back. The one that we cultivate and concentrate on decides what we are at the end.

A man by one supreme effort of the will may change his whole career and almost accomplish miracles.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

  Habit is a matter of acquirement.

Many persons read good books, but say they do not get much good out of them. They do not realize that all any book or any lesson course can do is to awaken them to their possibilities, to simulate them to use their will power.

You may teach a person from now until doom’s day, but that person will only know what he learns himself. You can lead him to the fountain but you can’t make him drink.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

We get back what we give out. So form the habit of encouraging others, and you will find it a wonderful tonic for both those encouraged and yourself.

Theron Q Dumont Quotes

Life furnishes us the opportunity to improve. But whether we do it or not depends upon how near we live up to what is expected of us.

Our may be a hard task, but the harder the task, the greater the rewards. It is the difficult things that really develop us, anything that requires only a small effort, utilizes very few of our faculties and yields a scanty harvest or achievement.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

I know that every man that is willing to pay the price can be a success. The price is not in money, but in effort.

The first essential quality of success is the desire to do – to be something. The next thing is to learn how to do it, the next to carry it into execution.

The secret of success is to try always to improve yourself no matter where you are or what your position.

The successful man gets used to seeing things accomplished and always feels sure of success. The man that is a failure gets used to seeing failure, expects it and attracts it to him.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

It is my opinion that with the right kind of training every man could be a success.

Don’t expect anyone to help you. Just take one big brace, make firm resolutions, and resolve to conquer your weakness and vices. Really none can do this for you. They can encourage you, that is all.

Everyone really wants to do something, but there are few that will put forward the needed effort to make the necessary sacrifice to secure it.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

Theron Q Dumont Quotes

There is only one way to accomplish anything and that is to go ahead and do it.

It is of the utmost value to learn how to concentrate.

To make a success of anything you must be able to concentrate your entire thought upon the idea you are working out.

Success is assured when you are able to concentrate for you are then able to utilize for your good all constructive thoughts and shut out all the destructive ones.

It is of the greatest value to be able to think only that which will be beneficial.

The person that can center his mind on any problem, no matter what it is, and remove any unharmonious impressions has strength of mind.

Concentration, first, last and all the time, means strength of mind.

The person that can direct his energies and hold them at work in a concentrated manner controls his every work and act…. He can make his every move serve a useful end and every thought a noble purpose
Start out in the morning and see how self-poised you can remain all day.

At times take an inventory of your actions during the day and see if you have kept your determination.

If not, see that you do tomorrow.

The more self-poised you are the better will your concentration be. Never be in too much of a hurry; and, remember, the more you improve your concentration, the greater are your possibilities.

Concentration means success, because you are better able to govern yourself and centralize your mind; you become more in earnest in what you do and this almost invariably improves your chances for success.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

“Work when you work, and play when you play.” When you give yourself up to pleasure you can develop concentration by thinking of nothing else but pleasure; when your mind dwells on love, think of nothing but this and you will find you can develop a more intense love than you ever had before.

When you concentrate your mind on the “you” or real self, and its wonderful possibilities, you develop concentration and a higher opinion of yourself.

By doing this systematically, you develop much power, because you cannot be systematic without concentrating on what you are doing.

When you walk out into the country and inhale the fresh air, studying vegetation, trees, etc., you are concentrating…. Whenever you fix your mind on a certain thought and hold your mind on it at successive intervals, you develop concentration

Theron Q Dumont quotes

If you hold your mind on some chosen object, you centralize your attention, just like the lens of the camera centralizes on a certain landscape. Therefore always hold your mind on what you are doing, no matter what it is.

Theron Q Dumont Quotes

When you steady your nerves and muscles, you steady your mind, but let your nerves get out of order and your mind will become erratic and you will not possess the power of direction, which, in other words, is concentration

The next time you feel yourself becoming irritable, use your will and be patient. This is a very good exercise in self-control. It will help you to keep patient if you will breathe slowly and deeply…. Concentrate on the fact that you are determined to keep your poise, and you will improve your power of concentration.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

You have concentrated within powers that if developed will bring you happiness greater than you can ever imagine. Most people go rushing through life, literally driving away the very things they seek. By concentration you can revolutionize your life, accomplish infinitely more and without a great effort.

He who desires to become above the ordinary should open up for himself the interior channels which lead to the absolute law of the omnipotent. You can only do this by persistently and intelligently practicing thought concentration.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

Concentrated thought will accomplish seemingly impossible results and make you realize your fondest ambitions.

If you will just realize that through deep concentration you become linked with thoughts of omnipotence, you will kill out entirely your belief in your limitations and at the same time will drive away all fear and other negative and destructive thought forces which constantly work against you.

In the place of these you will build up a strong assurance that your every venture will be successful.

When you learn thus how to concentrate and reinforce your thought, you control your mental creations; they in turn help to mold your physical environment, and you become the master of circumstances and the ruler of your kingdom.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

No matter what you may be doing, when in practice think of nothing else but that act at the time.

The idea is to be able to control your unimportant acts, otherwise you set up a habit that it will be hard to overcome, because your faculties have not been in the habit of concentrating.

Your faculties cannot be disorganized one minute and organized the next.

If you allow the mind to wander while you are doing small things, it will be likely to get into mischief and make it hard to concentrate on the important act when it comes.

Select some thought, and see how long you can hold your mind on it. It is well to have a clock at first and keep track of the time…. Don’t let any other thought drift in.

Just the moment one starts to obtrude, make it get out.

Make it a daily habit of concentrating on this thought for, say, ten minutes.

Practice until you can hold it to the exclusion of everything else.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

In deep concentration you become linked with the great creative spirit of the universe, and the creative energy then flows through you, vitalizing your creations into form.

In deep concentration your mind becomes attuned with the infinite and registers the cosmic intelligence and receives its messages.

You become so full of the cosmic energy that you are literally flooded with divine power.

This is a most desired state.

It is then we realize the advantages of being connected with the supra-consciousness.

Theron Q Dumont quotes

No matter what you may be doing, imagine that it is your chief object in life.

Imagine you are not interested in anything else in the world but what you are doing.

Do not let your attention get away from the work you are at.

Your attention will no doubt be rebellious, but control it and do not let it control you.

When once you conquer the rebellious attention you have achieved a greater victory than you can realize at the time.

Many times afterwards you will be thankful you have learned to concentrate your closest attention upon the object at hand.

Exercise in Memory Concentration: Select some picture; put it on a table and then look at it for two minutes.

Concentrate your attention on this picture, observe every detail; then shut your eyes and see how much you can recall about it.

Think of what the picture represents; whether it is a good subject; whether it looks natural.

Think of objects in foreground, middle ground, background; of details of color and form.

Now open your eyes and hold yourself rigidly to the correction of each and every mistake.

Close eyes again and notice how much more accurate your picture is. Practice until your mental image corresponds in every particular to the original
