All too often, people talk about how they wish they could do or have (fill in the blank), and they follow up that statement with a negative declaration as to why they can’t. Changing your mind does equal changing your life, but not very many people believe that. Just yesterday, someone told me that she wants to work for herself and make a living off of her art. I grew excited to be connected to another dreamer, but my excitement quickly faded, when she started talking about how the world was set up in opposition of her dream.
She spoke about how we have to pay bills and take care of children and spouses, and I felt so sorry for her, because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to convince her to change her mind to accept anything else in that moment. She wanted one thing, but she believed that she couldn’t have it, and you know what…she was right.
If you believe that you can’t, won’t, or aren’t, you are absolutely right. No one will ever prove you wrong. We create our own reality, through our thoughts.
Changing Your Mind
Changing your mind is essential to creating the life that you truly desire. Napoleon Hill figured this out, way back in the 1800s. Bob Proctor has been traveling the world for decades explaining this concept to millions of people. The bible even tells us that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). The book of Proverbs is said to have been written between 950-700 B.C. So, this is not new information, yet most people have been conditioned and programmed to believe that it’s a foreign concept.
You see, your thoughts are crucial to your well-being. You have to be committed to changing your mind, in order to get different results. Have you ever said, “I feel a head cold coming on”, and soon after you said that, your cold was in full effect? How about, “I can’t lose weight, because of _____”? Were you able to drop the pounds after that statement? Many people speak negative situations into their lives. They talk about what they don’t want, and they are so fixated on what they don’t want that they are soon experiencing that very thing. Changing your mind will ensure that your life changes as well.
Here are some more bible scriptures about the words you speak…
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21)
“…Calleth those things which be not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17)
I could go on and on listing what the bible says on this topic, but I’m just trying to make a point here. What you say is what you are ultimately calling into your life. What you think is what you are creating for yourself. If you want life, love, prosperity, etc. you have to call those things into your existence. But if you want to be sick, broke, and unhappy, you can continue to think and speak negatively about yourself. Which do you choose?
Next Wednesday, I will be talking about how to change your mind and start getting more positive results in your life! Until then, let’s chat…Do you or have you ever struggled with a negative mindset?
