The Mind

Nothing is new in this world. Whatever it is you are going through has been experienced by someone else somewhere in this earth.

If you are an ardent news reader, you will discover that people have written great articles about YOU. You will find out that your situation have been written about a million times by different writers who live in different space and time. You will realise that you are not alone in your situation.

Challenges, Suffering, Pain, Happiness, Good Times, Tears, Difficult times, or whatever circumstances you are facing presently is not peculiar to you alone. There are others in the same boat as you are.

And the fact that these writers know nothing about you, yet, are able to communicate to your situations leave room for thoughts that indeed no one is alone in their adversaries. No one is alone in the moment of joy and laughter; no one is alone in the moment of aloneness.

These are phases in life and experiences that humans live with from time to time. No two people are the same but two people may have undergone the same situation and circumstance in their life’s sojourn.

Taking a bold step to actualizing ones dreams starts with the mind. Your mind is powerful and can help you achieve greatness or help you become a mere shadow of your dreams and ambitions. Your mind is powerful and leads you on the positive path when it tells you to wake up, shake off sluggishness and act on your dreams.

The mind can be deceitful when instead of prompting you to stand up and make things happen, it leaves you with shallow thoughts and insecurities. It begins to show you negativities and weaknesses instead of strength. The mind and the message it is emitting to you should be treated with seriousness.  If it gives you strength and you see the end result as positive, then follow it.

Whereas, if the mind is telling you to give up, to end it all, to not follow your dreams because people have tried it before and failed, then it’s time to rebuke your thoughts. It’s time to shake off the unproductive, lame excuses of failures from your head and change your mind-set.

Focus on the positive side of everything you think about. Don’t dwell on the negatives because they are only dream killers. They steal your strength and make you celebrate others accomplishments and successes while you leave your stories untold.
