How many books have been written that purport to tell you how you can use the “power of your mind” to get something that you need? It’s an alluring concept for sure, but one that simply isn’t true. There is no power of the mind other than the power to choose what you will. I know, I know, this idea runs cross purposes with many famous works such as, “Awakening The Giant Within,” but suspend your disagreement for a little bit and allow me to explain what I mean.
There’s a verse in the Bible that states, as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. (Read that sentence again!) There’s another one that states, guard your heart with all that you are because out of your heart flows the issues of your life. Those words have been there for years, but what do they even really mean? Well, those things we believe in the depths of our heart to be true, shape and form our existence today. And, by the power of choosing what we will think about, we can guard the heart of our minds; the place where our believing expectation comes from. Believing expectation forms the essence of our lives. What we believe to be true will come true if we really believe it. In fact, your life at this very moment is a direct reflection of those thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself most dearly. It is 100% accurate in every way. Remember it is not what you wish you were or would like to be, but what you truly are at this moment in time. It is a system that never errs in any way. God wouldn’t have told us to guard our hearts with all that we are if what we believe in our hearts did not have a dramatic impact on the life we are living. So, if you think about, believing is not the power of your mind, but rather your connection to All-Power. However, I must add a caution, believing works with tremendous accuracy for positive and negative thinking alike. What you fear is also believing; believing that connects you to a different power; one that brings about frustration and defeat. Negative believing (fear) leads assuredly to negative results also with 100% accuracy.
So, how can you learn to believe for good? Well, in actuality you are believing something all of the time. However, most people become so frustrated with life because they believe in accordance with what they think they see and not in accordance with what they want. For example, the media, your neighbors, your family, financial analysts tell you it is a “bad economy!” And, it is difficult to get a job in a bad economy. So, unknowingly, you believe what they said and thus have a hard time getting a job. After all, it’s a bad economy. You are believing something that is not necessarily true and limiting yourself in the process. That belief is not true because what you truly believe to receive, you will receive 100% of the time, in every case. Imagine, there are many people who are not only NOT suffering in the “bad economy” but are actually prospering. Why? They have chosen to believe otherwise. Can you see it? You cannot allow present circumstances or conditions to affect what you believe or else you give your power (your ability to choose) over to something else. And, you will never, ever be able to change your present circumstances as long as you keep doing that. So, ummm stop it!
So, when is the right time to believe? The right time, is right now! Well, when do you want to get the “things” that you want? Right now or five years from now? The reason so many things seem to take so long to come to pass is because we are not believing for them to happen right now. Logically if you imagine your life being full of abundance and peace and love at some future date, it is not going to happen right now. (Read that again!) Ask yourself, why does so much time need to go by before I get what I really want? Good things take a lot of time to happen? Says who? Says you! And thus it is true for you! If you can wrap your mind around that concept, things can transform in your life, in a hurry. In order to get what you want in life, you have to see it happening in your mind, right now. Thus believing (true believing, not wishing) is seeing the result you want in your mind first before it happens in your reality. Wishing, on the other hand, is always in the future and you cannot live in the future, so it is a futile effort. And if we are honest, we don’t really believe the things we wish would happen are going to happen, that’s why we continue to “wish” they would!
Believing is therefore seeing your intended result in your mind’s eye first and then holding that image there despite what the whole world tells you to the contrary! Believing for good things in your life is not going to come without opposition. In fact, the larger your believing for good things, the more contrary “facts” will show up to talk you out of what you believe. God forbid you ever learn how much control you really do have over your life, if you only knew it (he says sarcastically)! Your job and my job therefore, is to not allow the world, the circumstances, the conditions, our limited and finite thinking, to talk us out of the things we really want.
Believing is almost magical. By believing you can be healed of ANY disease. By believing you can receive tremendous financial abundance. By believing you can find the answer to every question and repair anything that was ever broken. By believing you can transform your life from mundane to dynamic; from so-so to oh-so; from ordinary to extraordinary!
Get what you want out of your life now, folks. Don’t spend any time trying to awaken the giant within you, instead believe wholeheartedly to tap into the greatest power in the universe, God’s power for good! God is for it! I am for it! Now it’s time for you to be for it! Get it and get it now!
