Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”
The mind plays a big role in the making of successful people. As we have said, man is a tripartite being― he is primarily a spirit being, possessing a soul and he lives in a body. The soul of a man comprises of his mind (reason), will (resolve) and emotions (feelings). The success of a man is born by the spirit of a man, but the spirit of a man acts as a gate keeper, the mind. Remember I said that we function as a result of the harmonious relationship between the inner-man (your spirit) and the mind. The impressions of the mind eventually photographed on the spirit of a man which eventually begins to produce fruit of the same kind.
James Allen in his book The Making of a Man said “the mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance.”In essence we can trace the roots of our circumstances and behavior to the thoughts that dominant our minds. If you have learned to control your thought life, you will begin to experience control of your life.
Saturate your mind with thoughts on success by exposing yourself to stimuli that will write success in your spirit-man. Talk success, taste success, see success, hear success, feel success and smell success. As you receive this stimuli think about success. Don’t talk about failures and inadequacies because such speaking continues to write the same in you.
“Summing it all up, friends I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” (Philippians 4:8, MSG)
