(Proverbs 23:7) As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…
The mind holds the power of imagination, recognition, and appreciation, and is responsible for processing feelings and emotions, resulting in attitudes and actions. A lot of thoughts ran through one’s mind. Some are positive, others are negative. The human mind conceived and built the fastest and largest aircrafts on earth, the largest ships on earth, the tallest buildings ever seen, and the strongest economies in human history. Thus, the mind is man’s greatest asset. Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
If the mind is not properly harnessed failure is imminent. If it is properly used, success is sure. Many fail in life simply because they don’t understand the way the mind works. The mind is a slate, meaning it does not know positive or negative, good or evil, riches or poverty, etc. It is what you feed the mind with that it runs with. The mind totally depends on us, the environment, friends, education, family, religious background, etc to form its library. When this library of our mind is formed, it determines our responses, actions and reactions.
The reason a lot of people are not wealthy is not because they don’t earn money or make money, the reason they are not wealthy is simply because they don’t have a mindset for creating wealth. Having a million doesn’t make you a millionaire; it is having a millionaire mindset that makes you a millionaire. If your mind cannot fathom it, you cannot have it. Some people make a million and in no time it is gone. Some invest million and in no time their throwaway mindset ends up sabotaging their wealth.
If you give a man with poverty mindset 10 million naira, few years later, he will still be poor, because you only enriched his pocket, but did not enrich his mind and wealth gotten without a wealthy mentality will fly away. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7). Train and develop your mind to create wealth, to enhance your living, to be deep in spiritual things, etc. Beloved, the way out of poverty starts with a complete deprogramming of the mind. Enrich your mind and your pockets will be filled.
Meditation: Living a positive lifestyle means learning from failure and then moving on and trying again.
