The mind of man, according to Stan Toler, is man’s greatest asset. It is our home of memory, reasoning, imagination, and decision making. Infact, the mind controls our life!!!
The first thing I want to to talk about today that the mind can do for you is…
It shapes your life
You must know that whatever happens in your today, is due to the decisions you have taken yesterday, and whatever decision you make today, will determine how your tomorrow will look like. This is why you must strive to always make the right decisions so that your life will not be without form!!!
Nineteen year-old Liu Shih Kun was an esteemed concert pianist in China until the cultural Revolution banned all things of Western influence. Refusing to renounce his beloved music, Liu was deemed an enemy of the people, beaten and imprisoned. There he languished in a tiny cell with no book, pen, or worst still, no piano!!! Six years later, for propaganda reasons, he was asked to play in Beijing with the Philadelphia Orchestra; he played brilliantly, and even eighteen months after, when he was released, he played flawlessly. That he was able to play flawlessly even without a piano, and that his hands were able to move as if he had not stopped playing for over seven years, his secrets? He disciplined himself to shut out negative thoughts and practice every hour on an imaginary piano. He refused to let the thought of being in a tiny cell limit him or to allow negative things go across his mind, but set his mind on rehearsing with a piano that he cannot see or hear!!!
You must realize that when everything seem to be against you, you must make your mind work for you. There is a law in psychology that says, “if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be and you keep and hold that picture long enough, you will soon become exactly ass you have been thinking.” It all happens in the mind.
All you would ever and can ever be is determined by how much you put your mind to work. Never ever ever allow your mind to harbour negative thoughts. A well respected counsellor said, “We do not realize the extent to which our thinking contribute to our mental anguish.”
Be a positive thinker, and watch positivity surround your life!!!
