The result you get in your life is as a result of the substance you have programmed in your mind. The only way to change yourself is to change your mind. Many people are bound to be successful and great in life, but their mind-set is made up of poverty, failure and bad thoughts. You don’t have to go far, you don’t have to travel, and you don’t have to look far off before you change yourself. Your first point of change should start from within you.
NOTE 1: WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT YOURSELF IS WHAT WOULD ACTUALLY MANIFEST EVEN IF YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN YOU BELIEVE.
It is not only who you are, but what you think of yourself that matters. Let’s take the example of a man that thinks like a woman, he would always behave like a woman, and a woman that thinks like a man would always behave like a man. Who you think you are goes a very long way in shaping your life, and that’s how powerful the mind is. Many people fail in their academics, business, project, work and other activities because they believe that nothing good can come out of them that would move anything they do forward. If God wants to bless a man and he has in him the poverty mentality, he would not be able to receive the blessing of God until he changes his thought because a bad mind can never bring forth good things.
NOTE 2: YOU CANNOT ACHIEVE ANYTHING MEANINGFUL IN LIFE UNTIL YOU LEARN TO BELIEVE THAT ALL WHAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE IS ACHIEVABLE.
What people believe about you is not as important as what you believe about yourself because what you believe about yourself carries more power and strength than what others believe about you. If you have a poor mentality, you would always remain poor and people would always see you as being poor, but when you see yourself as being rich people would envision it in you and would always see you as a rich man even when you don’t have the money yet. A man once told me that he does not say that he is poor but he is broke because been broke is a temporary stage in life, and being poor is a state of mind.
NOTE 3: WE ARE ALL SPECIAL; DON’T LIMIT WHAT YOU THINK OF YOURSELF AS A RESULT OF YOUR CURRENT SITUATON OR CIRCUMSTANCE.
A great man once said that the best fighters are not made on the ring; they are made on the training ground. These fighters are those that have learnt to believe in themselves when nobody is ready and willing to believe in them, they take their time to train and do extra exercise just to ensure that they become champions. I was watching a competitive program, and before the final stage of the competition, they interviewed all the contestants that made it to the finals. During the interview, they asked the eventual winner of the event and what he said showed that he had become the winner in his mind, so we were not surprised when he won it. He said ‘’I CAME HERE TO WIN, I AM ALWAYS A WINNER AND THE NUMBER ONE (1) POSITION IS MINE’’.
Your mind is just like a computer, what you garbage in is what you would garbage out. There is no miracle or magic that can be performed there. When the children of Israel left Egypt, they still had the Egypt mentality in them (Groaning, slavery, mourning, dependency) so they always wanted to go back to Egypt even when they had left. Until they uprooted the Egypt spirit, they could not enter into the promise land. Until you think like a king, you can never become a king and until you think like the best student in you department, you can never be the best student in your department. Until you think like the best in your working place, you would never become the best and until you see our product as the best the customers can ever get, they would not see it as the best. It all starts from the mind.
NOTE 4: GUARD YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILLIGENCE BECAUSE OUT OF IT COMES THE ISSUE OF LIFE.
