The power of thoughts is encapsulated in this verse of Scripture: Prov 23:7 “..as a man thinks in his heart, so is he..”
Thought according to Merriam-Webster can be defined as “an idea, plan, opinion, picture, etc., that is formed in your mind : something that you think of”
The power of thoughts from the human mind cannot be over emphasised. What happens to us and around us is usually a product of our thought and imaginations.
Good or bad, your life will go in the direction of your thoughts and words.
Les Brown, a world renowned speaker shared his experience. He said there was a time things were going so well with him that he thought to himself that life is not this good and something bad will happen. And sure enough, not long after, things changed for the worse.
Is Les the only one to have gone through this predicament? No! Most people go through life holding negative thoughts. It is like driving with the emergency brakes on, you won’t move far, pure struggle.
Don’t nurse or encourage thoughts of sickness, being unemployed or loosing your job or business, or being broke or dead. You will be shocked to know the number of people that have thoughts of them being sacked or involved in accidents or having one mishap or the other. You may have even had some negative thoughts yourself.
So how do we turn things around and ensure you use the power of your thoughts right?
Carry your “switch” with you. What do I mean by switch? Whenever you have any negative picture or thought, immediately change the thought and imagine what you’d prefer to happen. You might also need to use words to force the thought to change.
Secondly, practise “seeing” and have creating sessions. What you will do here is take time off your activities, be in a relaxed and quiet state and visualise what you want to happen. See yourself doing and having what you desire.
I have a friend that sees and calls himself Life and Success Coach, and you would hear him say and advertise himself as holding seminars for business magnates, though when you look at him physically you may be tempted to laugh him off. Yet, I am inspired greatly as this young man is creating his tomorrow using his mind and power of sight. I can bet few years from now, if he continues in such thought, he will conquer the world.
The mind is your one tool to live a successful life, use it to control your future.
