Our mind is a battlefield. Several battles take place in our minds every minute, hour and day. Your mind is the place of victory or defeat over many life issues. What you have defeated in your mind cannot defeat you in reality. What you have given up on in your mind is most likely to be lost in reality. The mind is like the photo lens that capture the image that is printed in a photograph. Whatever it receives it captures and reproduces. This is why there is a lot of contention for our minds.
Due to the importance of the mind, you must ensure you take charge of your mind and what it receives. Whatever you wish to accomplish as a goal or life objective, first settle it in your mind that you will see it to the end. Settle it in your mind that there will be challenges and oppositions, but that in spite of all these, you will achieve your goals. Settle it in your mind that regardless of your circumstances or situation, you will succeed in life.
Don’t give in to negative thoughts. Don’t accept defeat in your mind. Believe in yourself and what God has deposited in you. You can do it. You can make it. Settle it in your mind that you are a success. Visualize the end product, what you will become and begin to take steps towards that vision. The steps may be small, they may be baby steps, they may be shaky steps, but it will eventually become firm, steady and sure. Babies start with wobbling and shaky steps, often falling but always rising. After a little while their steps become firmer, stronger and surer. So, don’t worry about mistakes, they are part of the success story. Just ensure you are taking steps towards your vision.
Create your own memoir, if you can, because the world will read your great story someday. I want you to settle it in your mind that you cannot fail, even if that has been your family history. You cannot die from the same illness that has plagued your lineage. You are different and exempted from all that. Settle that in your mind. As a man thinks, so he is. Proverbs 23:7a. What you accept in your mind becomes your reality. So choose what to accept. Choose what you allow into your mind. “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” said Mahatma Gandhi. Will you?
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
