“Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum”
Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Although released with highly psychedelic under/over tones, there is quite a bit of wisdom toss around here and there. Since September is my birthday month, and I share the year that this film was released, I am going to make each of my Success Sundays a reference from the movie.
So what does the above quote say?
Translated it means: the torch of the mind lights the path to glory
It’s not saying that it would be an easy path, but when we concentrate and focus with our mind, our path is easier to see and we can see further. This is what Napoleon Hill wrote about in the 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich and what also The Secret rehashed and repackaged recently. This is a philosophy that I subscribe to and it’s applicable to every one in every walk of life. Don’t be your own stumbling block, be your own stepping stone.

I have really changed my philosophy about life after reading The Secret. And guess what? Good things have happened to me!
