Claiming Victory in 2013 – February 9th, 2013, by Danny J. Stevens

“Without faith to act as a governor, the human mind is a runaway worry generator, a dynamo of negative expectations. And because your life is yours to shape as you wish with free will, if you entertain too much anxiety about too many things, if you place no trust in providence, what you fear will more often come to pass. We make so many of our own troubles, from mere mishaps to disasters, by dwelling on the possibility of them until the possible becomes inevitable.”

~ Dean Koontz – Odd Apocalypse

Through the fictional character of Odd Thomas, Dean Koontz, has been able to bring forth the principles of self development and personal power! Odd Thomas has many reason to feel a victim. His intuition and ability to see the souls that have yet to travel to the other world marks him as different. His simple views on life, his youth and limited occupational skills could be a limit for this young man. Instead he knows he has a purpose to help others passing through this world and to assist them turn events that have gone wrong and bring it back to order. His action makes him a hero, a victor and not a victim.

Every action we take alters our destiny. Even if the direction is only altered by a degree today, if the future it alters our destiny in gigantic measures. I am sure someone is saying this is fiction, get real! It is fiction, but it is mimicking life. This is the thoughts of the creator Dean Koontz and his life experiences placed in to the character of Odd Thomas. Odd Thomas is actually in my belief part of our lives, a person who wants to do good, be better.
