I have made bold to say that intended victories in life are first won in the mind realm. That is, if you want to have absolute control of your life, then you should take absolute control of your thought.
Somebody once said, the first aid to changing your life is changing the kind of thoughts you process on a daily basis.
When you think, you generate thoughts. And thinking as far as life is concern, is always a progressive act.
Thinking occurs both consciously and unconsciously. So, constantly your mind is always processing data, whether you are aware of this or not, the results are always in direct proportion to the kinds of circumstances that have been generated.
For instance, you keep thinking of an opportunity where you will meet with somebody that will help you achieve a particular goal. Over time what begins to happen is this, your inner circumstance begins to commandeer your external circumstance to respond to your internal need. You suddenly begin to attract all the needed provision to achieve your vision.
The Buddist believes that when a person dies without accomplishing a certain aspiration, within the world of the spirit he meets with others that had similar dream that wasn’t equally accomplished, then they begin to search for a human within the living world, incite the person with the dream and then begin to campaign all the needed resources for him or her to achieve the set objective….funny! Looks like another clever way to explain the process of translating a near impossible dreams to reality!
Hear James Allen: “The soul attracts that which it secretly harbours; that which it loves and also that which it fears.”
Listen, your present circumstance is in direct proportion or it’s an exact reflection of your internal circumstance – the state of your mind.
You must win this mind game – for men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are!
So to win, do the following:
1. Be Aware That Your Thought Has Powers.
Our thoughts hold enormous influence over our lives.
Just as in the game of soccer, that harmless looking round object called the ball has the power to determine the success or the defeat of a team, so does your thought – though assuming but very powerful in effect.
All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.
2. Lift Your Thoughts.
The Great Teacher Paul, in his writing to the Philippian Church said: “Whatsoever things are True…Honest…Just…Pure…Lovely…of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Discipline yourself to focus your meditative might only on things and subjects that will naturally uplift your spirit.
A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. He can only remain weak, and abject, and miserable by refusing to lift up his thoughts.
Don’t settle even on moderate thoughts!
3. Wrap Your Thoughts Around With Your Goals.
Jim Rohn said, “the ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.”
Give your mind expectations. Try to limit its activities to a given focus.
You can’t depend on circumstances to function. You can’t migrate like the birds, simply because the season has changed; pre-determine events by focusing your imagination.
With a decisive goal(s) in view, it is easier to always dominate the mind battle.
POINT TO RUMINATE ON: “We are all architects of our fortune.”
