DON’T WASTE YOUR MIND
William is a childhood friend of mine. He has always had problem with money: he was mostly broke and near-broke. He longed for a life where he will be able to have more than enough although; he really didn't want a lot more than enough.He simply wanted enough money to never have to stress about paying his bills on time and having enough to get the things that he wanted and desired.
To start with, he didn't feel he was educated enough to get a really good job that paid the really big bucks. So, he believes he is destined to always be broke; he does not have faith in himself. He doesn't believe that he is supposed to live an abundance life. Since this is his innermost belief, he will never live an abundant lifestyle. Remember, as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
Moreover, our lifestyles, our relationships, our financial situation, our health, and anything else you can think of, comes to us by whatever we believe to be true about them. If you believe that life is hard and that it is a struggle, it will always be hard and a struggle for you. If you believe that money is hard to come by, then it will always be hard to come by for you. If you believe that you are sickly, then you will always be sickly. If you believe you’ll never be good at something, then you’ll never be good at it. It's all in a state of mind.
Your mind controls everything that happens to you. “But, there isn't any sort of course of study that is required in our schools that teaches anything at all about the mind and the power that it has, why?” Williams once asked me. True; school systems are working on it now hence; we must follow the only other way − Learn on your own.
Now let's be honest, most people don't read. Yeah, they will read the newspaper and their favourite magazine; the younger ones read tweets, posts, comments and chats and averagely, nothing further than that. So, if no one is teaching us how to understand the mind and its powers, how do we learn about it? It’s up to you.
Like everything else in life, it is up to you. You are the captain of your soul; the architect of your life. If you don't like the results that you are getting out of life, then it is up to you to challenge the status quo. No one can change you but yourself. Similarly, you cannot change anyone except they change themselves.
“But, how do one start making changes?” he asked further. I suggest you learn about the mind and how it functions. I started my path when I read the old classic “Think and grow rich” by Napoleon Hill and later “Think Big” by Ben Carson. I suggest you do likewise or, go on the Internet and read all that you can relate to the mind. Our mind is a masterpiece created by God. Start changing your mind, if you want to start changing your life.
Begin now, to learn about your mind. Learn to spend time weekly learning about the mind and how it functions. Surf the internet, read regularly, meditate and put to practice the things you read. I assure you, after a while, you will feel how much the quality of your life will improve. Don’t waste your mind, make things happen.
