I know it’s been a while now, am sorry about that but finals are almost here so it’s making it hard to keep up, but I definitely haven’t forgotten about you guys.
Today I want to talk about the mind. If it really is as influential as we are told to believe. You know, what ever we want to achieve we think about it first and then work on it . So our mind is an incubator. So yeah it is as powerful as we are told to believe.It will bring out what you put in it. If you put in it positivity it will bear positivity and if you put in negativity, you get negativity in return.
There are a lot of things that can influence your thoughts and all these can be found in the environment you put yourself in. Basically your environment is “The sum total of all surroundings of a living organism, including natural forces and other living things, which provide conditions for development and growth as well as of danger and damage.” according to the businessdictionary.Com.
So now what is in your environment? Is it conducive for you? Is your environment helping you birth your dreams? Or rather is it taking you away from them? Now one of the main things found in our environment are friends. Are your friends building you up or tearing you down? Are they more concerned about what they will lose when you follow your dream, than helping you grow your dreams? Are their words bringing positivity and direction? or are they doing the opposite?
What are you reading? What are you listening to? What are you watching? Is it empowering you or is it making you doubt yourself? Is it making you see the light at the end of the tunnel? Or is it causing you to give up? Your eyes and ears are windows to your mind. What you feed them is what will be produced.
So the mind as I said earlier is an incubator keeping and absorbing all that you feed it and sooner or later it’s products are going to be seen. Lets take a pregnant woman for example, when she takes in seed no one knows, but as she keeps on incubating this seed in her you notice the growth of the seed till finally a child is born. What I am trying to say is, you are what you think about, you are what you feed your mind and definitely your mind is the most powerful incubator there is so feed it positivity and see where it leads you.
I am not saying even with all these, negative thoughts won’t come up. Oh they will come up but it isn’t your responsibility to not accept it. Once you accept that negative thought, it takes root in your mind and that is where the problems begin. So whenever those negative thoughts come up, rebuke them and speak positivity into your mind and life. Move from the environment that inhibits your growth, take the risk, bear the pain and see your dreams materialize.
Ultimately positivity is not just good for the mind, it’s good for your soul as well. My final thought is that the mind is truly as powerful as we are told it is, and with God and positivity there is nothing we cannot achieve.xox
