State of your Mind

The State of your Mind determines the State of your Life. It is amazing how a change of mind can lead to a significant change in one’s life, either positively or negatively. There is such a deep connection between one’s mind and experiences. This is why we are constantly advised to guide our mind. 

Almost all victories start from the mind, and same for all defeats. If you believe you can do it you are most likely to achieve it. It doesn’t matter how much you invest, if you think it wont work, it is most likely that it won’t work. 

When the sons of men made up their minds to build a tower in the land of Shinar, even God saw their determination (mindset to succeed) and knew they will succeed unless He confuses their language. 

You must therefore exercise control over your mind if you want to succeed in life. You must feed your mind with God’s words and promises, positive thoughts, inspirations, success stories of others, and believe in yourself. 

The greatest battlefield is in the mind. This is where negative and positive thoughts strive for control every minute, and only those who have mastered the art of sweeping their minds of negativities and filling it with positivities will come out as victors. 

Start changing your negative mindset and you will start experiencing a turnaround. To win in life you must constantly cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and continuously bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Remember the State of your Mind determines the State of your Life. If your mind is always in a state of emergency,  your life will always be witnessing emergencies. What State is your mind in?

‘Have To Do’ vs ‘Called To Do’

Everyone is created for a specific purpose. There is no accident in creation. All creatures are purposefully made. 

For mankind, life and parental pressure have a way of shaping our lives and sometimes imposing new purposes on us. We often call these new purposes, vocations, professions, careers, etc. 

Very few people are in vocations that align with their original purposes and this accounts for why we have a lot of unfulfilled people who might have even made a ‘success’ of their career. 

It is important to know that being successful doesn’t equate being fulfilled. Fulfilment usually comes with finding and fulfilling what you are called or made to do, which is your purpose. 

Finding and doing what you are made to do, thus become a primary task for everybody who wants fulfilment. This in no way invalidates your chosen career or vocation or profession. Rather your career, which is ‘what you have to do’ becomes the vehicle or an enabler for your purpose,  which is ‘what you are called to do’. 

You must therefore work with purpose in mind. When you begin to do this, life becomes more meaningful, you become more productive and you become better at prioritising and more efficient in the use of your resources. 

So, find ‘what you are called to do’ and use ‘what you have to do’ to fulfil what you are called to do. 

Have a fulfilling day.

Strive for Excellence 

Many of the travails we face today are borne out of our penchant for mediocrity. We have become so used to doing things shoddily to the extent that when someone tries to be extraordinary we label him or her as overzealous. 

We build with inferior materials at the risk of wasting lives when the buildings collapse. We construct our roads and drainage with low quality stuffs and when the rain comes we start complaining. Even our health system is failing because the doctors never got quality training, the facilities are in decay, so death rate is increasing. Those who trade in food items neglect all safety rules just to make more profit at the expense of sending people to early graves. 

Right before our own eyes, our world is collapsing all around us, yet we still don’t see reason why we must do things right and do it well. Yet we don’t see why we must do ordinary things extraordinarily. 

Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 1:10 “That ye may approve things that are excellent” Philippians 1:10a. 

Martin Luther King also said “If a man is called to be a street sweeper,  he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted,  or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. ”

No matter how menial that task is, do it very well. This is what brings excellence. Excellence births good life. It pays us to do things right the first time and do it well. We will save ourselves a lot of hassles by so doing. 

My sympathy to those affected by the rain flood on Saturday. 

Please be informed that ‘Cage the Minions; Unleash the Giants’ seminar scheduled to hold for Saturday 15th July has been postponed due to logistics challenge. New date and venue will be communicated in due course. Apologies for any inconvenience(s). Thanks for your understanding. 

Have a great week. Cheers!

Thinking is a Discipline 

God’s mandate to man includes having dominion and subduing the earth. Meaning we are created to take charge of our world and shape our world for our benefits. 

Sadly, the reverse of this order seems to be the case, especially for the less developed world. We have become victims of little or no thinking. We practically allow circumstances and situations shape our lives rather than shape situations. 

Our governments are more reactive and proactive. Our systems are designed to address issues after the havoc rather than prevent issues. This is why when rain falls, like it is doing this morning, our roads will be blocked and traffic congestion is inevitable. 

These are all symptoms of poor or no thinking. For people who do not think, they will always be victims of life. Thinking is a discipline, requires discipline and you have got not just to think, but to think big, realistically, reflectively, and strategically. 

Is there a challenge you are facing? Have you really given it serious thinking? Have you placed it under the hard scrutiny of personal and shared thought? In the words of Brian Tracy, successful people are big thinkers. 

As a man thinks so he is, according to the book of Proverbs . So if you don’t think, it means you are empty. If you also don’t think big, you will remain small. The choice is yours. 

Happy New Week. 

15th July, 2017 is a date you don’t want to miss. “Cage the Minions; Unleash the Giants ”
