Get Your Mind Right!

27 10 2011

It amazes me how many of us set a new year’s resolution, a dream, a goal, an ambition but we never stop long enough to shift our mindset to get it in alignment with this new vision we have set for ourselves.  To get our thoughts in the position to prosper!  To get our beliefs, our viewpoint, our feelings in agreement with reaching that goal!  You see if we don’t believe it, we will never achieve it.  If we can’t trust it with certainty, we will never see it come to pass in our lives.   In order to realize any dream we have set for ourselves,  we must stop long enough to refocus our mind in that direction.    This need to change the way we think is even discussed by Paul in the bible…

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” -Romans 12:2

I believe that when we have this great desire inside of us or a new year’s resolution, or ambition that, that desire was planted in us by God.  Therefore if God planted it in us then we definitely have the opportunity to see it come to pass and all we really need to do to see it manifest in our lives is;

  1. Put a plan in place.
  2. Work the plan to make it happen.
  3. Get our mind in alignment to believe it is possible.

This is what I believe the apostle Paul is talking about when he calls for us to renew our mind.   We all have opportunities to doubt based on things that happened to us in our past that continue to haunt us, the negative self talk we have allowed ourselves to do for so long or even the haters that try to keep us in a position of less than our best.  Whatever it is we each have the power to overcome it, it all comes down to choice.   We all must make a conscious choice to dwell only on positive!!!!!!

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. – Philippians 4:8

On this day, what will you choose?  Will you choose to believe all that is good and possible about whom you are or stay stuck on who you aren’t?  I say GET YOUR MIND RIGHT, trust and believe the good that God has placed in you and start moving in the direction of the person you were meant to be!

In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can. -Michael Korda

 Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent. -Eleanor Roosevelt

The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen. – Frank Lloyd Wright

If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right. -Mary Kay Ash
