What Your Mindset Has Got to Do with Your Success or Failure in Life
It is what your mind envisaged about you you will always end up becoming. Therefore, do your possible best to think positively always and wear that beautiful smile too.
We are truly the products of our thinking or thought process. Believe you me, if you will become a success, it will have to start from within – your heart or mind – and with other attributes embedded inside of you, other things will fall in shape and boom…you are that success originally conceived in your mind.
I have seen a young man who always told me when we were in the university that he knew he would end up fast in life a big man. Even right there in school, he raised money from his family and bought a motorcycle and started operating commercial services on all the campuses by himself. Within six months, he was able to buy another one and his business started growing in leaps and bounds. Today, he has a thriving transport business and has fulfilled his dream of becoming a big man. It is all about your mindset and confessing it at all times. This makes you armed with positive mindedness.
Everywhere you look at, you’ll see opportunities and believe in your mind that you will do something about these opportunities that would benefit humanity and you as well. When others are waiting on their fellow human beings to help them out with ideas, you have been blessed with ideas that would take you to the next level in life and you will continue to soar higher and higher.
It all starts in the mind and moves to your confessing it to come to pass in your lifetime. There is power in your sheer will power. That is where the spirit of God lives in you and helps you know when an opportunity is crying for a roof over its head. Just believe in your mind and avail yourself the opportunity of casting your bread upon many waters. You will equally be prayerful for absolute divine help in guiding your path to the right opportunities.
If you believe you will end up a failure in life simply because no one in both your nuclear and extended families has made it in life, you will definitely not have a say in what becomes of your future because in your mind, there has been a foreclosure to success – this success that you only live to envy people who are in bed with success. This is where many of our youths end up derailing. When you are filled with greed and you are lazy and equally lacking in the will power of believing in yourself, you will become a devil’s workshop. That is why Nigerian youths today are so much into armed robbery and other vices. The other week in the month of April we heard how a friend took the life of another friend when he believed that this ill-fated friend of his would become his source of wealth. At the end of the day, he ended up in jail. Of course you and I know the system and condition of the Nigerian prison. He would never make it out of there alive and his life is ended except God comes knocking with the grace of second chance. Yes, we have seen such happenings in our daily living.
This young man had his sense eroded with the tricking from an octogenarian who deceived him into believing in blood money. That might be in existence and serving and has served a lot of Nigerians but that is not how to make yourself successful. We have equally been inundated with how so many people have lost their lives even as young people simply because this kind of shortcut to wealth is not about being a success. They always ended up running to men of God to help salvage what is left of their lives before their souls are taken by whom it was commissioned to when they hit the brick-wall of grave danger whereby they are neither here nor there with life. Reality has dawned and they start looking for help from where they should originally have gone.
Therefore, friends, I urge you to reshape your mental stead and tune in to God through prayers as He is the only one that would help you with all that you will need to even be blessed with the wisdom of believing in yourself and willing yourself to be optimistic and seeing opportunities around you.
