We are products of our influences that is everything we hear and listen too, everything we see and watch, everything we speak and has been spoken to us, everything we do and has happened to us, everyone we associate with online and offline. Those who we spend most time with in our personal lives and professional lives. The loving question to you my dear friend and reader is ‘What are you feeding your mind?
There is freedom in being honest with yourself.
Perhaps it is time to take stock. What was the last text you received and sent? What was the last thing you read before this blog? what kinds of things do you share and like on social media? what was the last thing you watched on TV, listened to, the last words you spoke or who had spoken to you? Who are you hanging out with the most are they positively influencing your life for the better, encouraging you? Deep down you will know there are changes to be made or not as the case may be. How you feed your mind, is how you feed your bodies emotional health and how you do life. You may need to delete some people from your social media feeds or unfollow them you may need to make some changes to who you hang out with, the things you watch, listen to and how you speak to others and your own self-talk.
Zig Ziglar states that what you feed your mind determines your appetite. There is great power in becoming influenced by the things you read, watch or listen to. That’s why it is imperative to feed your mind in positive and holy ways
If you’re struggling with your health, your finances, your relationships, STOP and look at what information you are feeding that precious mind of yours. Every piece of information we take in from outside influences, the people we surround ourselves with, the jobs we do, the TV, films, books, we watch and read, the activities we take part in, are all sowing thoughts in our minds.
Do you want to reap a good harvest?
Then you must ensure that the seeds you sow are of a high-grade quality and that they are fertilised with nourishing organic goodness and not mind rotting rubbish. It’s good to note that if you’ve been feeding your mind rubbish for years, it’s going to take a while to detox and cleanse it. It will require effort.
A fulfilled life requires effort.
How do you treat your mind? If you treat it like you’ve treated your attempts at fitness in the past, sporadic and never really committing to doing the daily things required for transformation then the results will always be poor and end up affecting you in some negative way. You will experience poor decision making, paranoia, sadness, regret, apathy and fear.
Only you can change this.
It has to be your choice backed up with persistent, consistent, purposeful positive actions. Not a choice you make and never really commit too, not a wishy-washy decision with a lack of persistent, consistent effort. That will bring you zero benefit and change very little. Have you ever wonder why the world is passing you by, and people you know seem to achieve more than you, take a look at their efforts and compare them to yours.
You’ll find plenty of clues.
What if you modelled their pattern for success? You may just find your life brings you some unexpected positive rewards. Don’t live with regret. ACT TODAY. ❤️
