“Mind is a flexible mirror, adjust it, to see a better world.” – Amit Ray. All great inventions start from the mind. No wonder the Bible warns to keep your heart with all diligence, because out of it proceeds the issues of life. What and where you are today is a product of what you have fed your mind with in the past. If you want to change where you are, then change what you feed your mind with.
Your mind is like a mirror, like Amit said. It reflects what you feed it, and that is basically what determines your outlook and approach to life. You must therefore make conscious effort to begin to feed your mind correctly. If you can open up the mind of some people, all you will find is gossips, fashion, and junks. Nothing really valuable. That is why some people are just empty, without depth and have nothing valuable to offer to life.
The greatest nutrients to the mind is the word of God. Make it a daily habit to read and digest the Word. Reading biographies and autobiographies is also good. It exposes your mind to the minds of great people. Mind what you watch. If you watch porn, you will live porn. Watch documentary that will increase your knowledge base. Don’t stay glued to the TV watching movies and music. They only feed you with vanities.
We watch great men and women (I mean truly great people, not our politicians) on TV and we envy them. If you take time to find out how they became great, you will find out that they fed their mind with the right stuffs. Most great people are avid readers. They are dedicated learners, always opening up their minds to learn more. If you want to be great, it starts from your mind. They cultivate their minds like a good farmer will cultivate his farm. Start your journey to Greatness today by consciously feeding your mind with the right nutrients.
Unfortunately, we are at a point when our nation is being daily deprived of great minds. Old age and death are daily taking away those great minds. Sadly, the rate of replacement is pitiably low. Little wonder most of our Senators lack depth and can’t really offer anything constructive. A rich man does not make a rich mind. They are mostly empty minds. Ecclesiastes 10:7. Equip your mind with urgency, for it is time to arise and take your place in destiny.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
