You are one thought away from becoming a millionaire. You are one thought away from becoming the CEO of a multi-national. You are one thought away from your business. You are one thought away from having your ideal family. You are one thought away from the political position you aspire. The world is one thought away from finding the cure of HIV/AIDS. The world is one thought away from eradicating poverty. The world is just a thought away from defeating terrorism.
Thoughts are the inner strings that pull circumstances and situations. The only speed in the universe that can match the speed of light is the thought. How far you go in life depends on your ability to choose your thoughts and change the contents of your mind. You have the power to master your mind. Master your mind, master your world.
Your thoughts pass from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind, which in turn, influences your actions in accordance with these thoughts. The power of your mind is part of the creative power of the Universe. You are a manifestation of the universal mind. Your thoughts work in harmony with the universal mind.
You can choose to tap into the productive or the destructive side of the universal mind. Just like radio or TV signals. So long the media stations are operating; the signals remain in the air waves. You can switch on to constructive or destructive media. Your daily inputs continually shape your world views. The limiting factor to your breakthrough is your thought. Not your ‘X’. Not your educational level. Not your family background. Not the colour of your skin. Rather, your thought.
God never gives us finished products. He provides us with raw materials so that we can be joyful partakers of His creation works. When ideas stop flowing, economies collapse. Just imagine if we were to turn back the hands of time to 150 years ago.
As a typical African, what would you lose if we were to flash back to 150 years ago? Modern clothes, computers, phones, cars, planes, shoes, TVs, microwaves, water dispensers, tarmac roads, swimming pools, electricity, internet, bath rooms, refrigerators, coffee etc. etc. Virtually almost everything you have and easily take for granted would be non-existence.
And all these items at your disposal today were just an idea. Someone jogged his imagination and ushered the world to a whole new level. What are you thinking? Are you really thinking? What positive difference shall your living cause to the world? Are you a passive observer of the wonders of the ages or are you an active mover of the course of humanity?
Just imagine the excruciating pains our mothers who didn’t manage to deliver normally went through under CS section as the surgeon’s knife tore their wombs open without anaesthesia? Many of them didn’t make it till William Thomas Green Morton publicly demonstrated the use of inhaled ether as a surgical anaesthetic in 1846.
Morton relieved the world of untold pains that haunted mankind for over 5,000 years. He revealed himself and offered his thoughts as a timeless gift to the world. Like Morton, many other men and women have made quantum changes in the human story. And you can’t solve relatively minor personal challenges like increasing your income to a comfortable level?
You are an idea away from your breakthroughs. Begin to think! How strange that people fight for stuff rather than for ideas. People who fight for inheritance are ‘dividers’. We ought to be ‘multipliers’. If we were fighting for ideas, we wouldn’t be stealing from government coffers. We would be expanding the national cake, not dividing it among our tribesmen.
Did you know all tangibles start with intangibles? Being broke is not your problem. Your partner is not your problem. Your boss is not your problem. Your problem are your thoughts. Out of your thoughts comes out family, career, business, excellence. Do you have the courage to exercise your thinking beyond your current locus? How? You ask me.
Change your mental picture. You eventually attract what you allow your mind to process: positive or negative. Learn to become the boss of your mind. There is no vacuum in nature. Refuse to look at the old pictures and scenes that fill your mind. Paint new pictures in the projection room of your mind. Start painting the pictures of how you want your life to unfold. Look for an architect to design your dream house and hang the pictures where you can see them everyday. Draw pictures of your dream family. Dream holiday. Dream career. Visualize them daily. Re-wire your CPU.
If you see in your inner vision how you want your life to be, and continue watching this mental scene everyday with faith, concentration and love, one day your life will look exactly as you imagine. Scripture teaches, as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. A good idea is not the one you possess but the one that possesses you. You sing about it every moment. It will eventually become your reality.
Who controls your mind? Have you put your life in other people’s hands? Did you know most of ‘your’ thoughts are actually not your thoughts? They originate from other peoples’ ideas. Social media, Newspapers, TV and interactions with other people. If you allow your mind to pick every thought without filtering, you lose your freedom as a free person. Whatever fills your mind fills your life. Your life is the overflow of your thoughts. Control your thoughts by changing your focus. Whatever your mind focuses on gets hold of you.
From a metaphysical point of view, every thought is patterned after the mental image that predominates at the time the thought is created. The effect is always similar to the cause. If you visualize your marriage failing, it will eventually fail. If you visualize yourself as a financial struggler, you will struggle financially in this life. The converse is equally true. If you visualize yourself living in your ideal neighbourhood, the thought will eventually become a reality. The ceiling in your life is your thoughts. You cannot perform in a manner that is inconsistent with your thought system.
Someone can take the same woman you divorced and make a happy marriage. Someone can buy the same business that you forfeited and make a fortune out of it. Someone can hire the same premises where you failed and build an empire from that focal point. Someone can have the same degree that you have and become world famous. Someone can have the same background as you have and end up as the president. Someone can be in the same economy and control the world markets. It’s not where you are or where you come from. It is the power of your imagination. It is the world’s greatest game changer.
Let your imagination run riot and your life will be a riotous mess. Refuse a ghetto mindset. Refuse a slave mentality. Refuse to speak like a ghetto boy. Train your tongue to speak like a prince. Negative words have the power to run you down. Your word is your world. Your word is your life. Your words paint mental pictures and your body obeys and implements the mental signals as received.
If medical science were able to do a mind transplant, we would end up with a different person altogether. You are your mind. Doctors have managed to do kidney, heart, lungs, pancreas, intestines and thymus transplants among other organs but never once, mind transplant!
He who changes your mind, changes you. Only one doctor throughout human history ever declared that He can transplant His mind to your mind, Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ – Phil 2:5. You’ve tried in the past and failed. You’ve struggled with various addictions and reached a regrettable settlement. Give Him a chance to transform your thinking into infinite possibilities.
If you are willing to do your part, God has committed to do exceedingly abundantly, above all you can ever think or imagine according to the power that works within you – Eph 3.20. It should not escape your attention that this power is at work within you.
