It is often quoted that the mind is man’s most powerful asset. Accordingly, it is most imperative that men guard or filter information that feeds the mind. The difference between a man of success and a failure is simply how they think!
In three POWERFUL steps, you will be given the process on how to prepare your life for success by simply managing your mind.
Step 1: Meditation.
You need to know who you are and what your purpose is. When you get up in the mornings, ignore your phone and your tablets or even thinking about the day ahead. MEDITATE! There is a notion that meditation is feminine but that belief is misconstrued at its core as meditation knows no gender but rather it is the practice that enables you to seek answers.
Meditation is extremely simple. Simply find a time and place where you won’t be interrupted and you simply not think but just breathe. It is recommended to do this in the early mornings because the world is still resting and it gives you a freshness that opens your mind and allows God to speak to you directly. This step is critical as you will see who you really are and you need to know who you are to activate your purpose.
Step 2: Plan.
A man must have a plan ALWAYS. Better yet, a man should ensure he has two. Never live your life dispassionately; don’t just exist, LIVE. Sit down and draft a blueprint for your life. If you desire to become a Pilot, do your research and get a mentor. Don’t just wait for life to change, get up and do what you must to ensure that you become what you were created to become and it starts with a plan.
Accordingly, guard your mind against negative voices by keeping your mouth closed to certain individuals. Associate with persons of similar intentions and goals and those that can push you or usher you to opportunities.
If you keep company with persons who are unsuccessful and those who think on a level of mediocre, then your mind will be tempted to think the same thoughts and what your mind believes, your reality will be.
Bring your life’s blueprint to God and allow Him to purposely put people into your life who will add to your life and ultimately allow His will for your life to manifest.
Step 3: Execute.
If you have meditated, planned and have brought it before God and His approval is stamped on it, you are ready to achieve. It is a complete waste of time if your blueprint remains a pipedream.
You have to work your blueprint until it becomes a reality. It surely won’t be easy and for this reason, you have to prepare your mind for the challenges and stay totally focused! You have to guard your thoughts especially if you try and fail.
This process is the “baking” process. It won’t be easy as you will feel discouraged at times and even feel like it is never going to become a reality but if you keep at it, in time the results will surely satisfy.
Your mind is where your future is. Ensure to guard it!
