It has been a while ever since I dropped my ink for some emotional and psychological reasons but as the popular Ghanaian's community saying goes, the downfall of a man is never the end of this life, in bouncing back to my passion, I would want to share with my dear readers a piece which I have entitled " Your mindset is the moulding block of your physiological being and future ".
In my experience and research, I have come across many writers who laced their words on motivational thoughts of which most of them in their messages try in building the self conference ,perseverance and determination level of their readers and on that, I got to realized for myself that, the whole secret behind every successful person lies on two key words which I termed as The Determinants of Future. The first key word is Determination and the second word is Mindset. I will first want to torch on the Mindset and deal with the Determination in my subsequent piece to come.
With the issue of the Mindset, in simplicity means your future lies in your Mindset. One other thing I have realized is that, the mind has never ceased a minute from working although I used to believe what my grandmother told me some years ago that your Mind rest or stop working when you are asleep I wish it was today, I would have asked my grandmother a simply question which is, if it is indeed true then why is it that when you sleep and had a dream, you are able to recall vividly whatever transpired in the dream? You see, the point is, you may failed to put the thoughts from your mind into coherent and judicious use and working hard towards it but that doesn't mean you don't have great mind because the controller of your physical body is the Mindset.
Henry Ford once said, "whether you think you can or you can't either way you are right" hence to live and enjoy the future you desire to see yourself can never be attained if you cannot see it for yourself today in your mind's eye. In the quest to become one of the icon in the society, try as much as possible to see yourself to be the person you admire and desire to be, work hard towards it and I assure you will certainly become that person one day. The obligation therefore lies with you to decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it. Believe it is possible for you. Close your eyes everyday for several minutes and visualize having what you want. Feel it. Believe it is already yours and finally don't forget to pray over it. That is what I termed as The Psychological Block for Physiological Development.
In the biblical context, Proverbs 23:7, of the Bible says, " As man thinketh in his heart, so he is" the big secret is in your thoughts to backed this point, one Buddha ever sighted that, " all that we are is the result of what we have thought. It is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts " my dear reader I want you to use a minute to take a logical review of your life today. Are you the person you thought of becoming some days or years back? What was the strategy you used in your quest to becoming that person you desire to be? Has the strategy work for you? If your answer is No, one thing I would want you to know is that no matter how best your strategy may be it still requires a lot of effort to ensure that your chosen strategy achieved the result you expected and all this depends on the Mindset.
One brothers of mine Joseph Ziekye ever told me that, "where there is a vision, there is a provision". And after the conversation, I keep asking myself a question that, where would the provision come from? Is it going to come from within me or someone else? But with the little experience that I have had from my interaction with people, I got to know that indeed I have great values in me just that, I have failed at many times to realize those values and that is my problem, yours may also be the same or similar to mine but today, I want you to know that everything we do is from the mind so change your Mindset today and it will change your entire life, your future and your destiny but remember to keep most of your plans to yourself that is the secret because not everyone you associate with want your success.
I would like to conclude by eating the words of one popular Ghanaian motivational speaker Emmanuel Dei-Tumi " we are in the era of mind power not man power. Developed your mind".
