MENTAL DIET: YOUR ALTITUDE DETERMINANT (PART 7)

Every nine months pilots go for recurrent training and check rides. Flying demands a mentality and the mind must be consistently trained and retrained to retain and sustain the principles of flight. http://www.foxweather.com

So it applies. Destiny demands a mentality and to attain and sustain a high soaring destiny the mind must be consistently trained and retrained to retain and maintain the momentum of high-soaring principles that produces an ever-increasing altitude in destiny.

WHAT IS YOUR MENTAL CONDITION?

Medically, everyone has a heart condition and our heart condition determines our physical health condition. The heart condition can either be optimal or deteriorating. The heart condition is very vital to life. A deteriorating heart condition poses a threat to life. In fact, a heart attack can cause the death of the physical body.

Likewise, everyone has a mental condition and our mental condition determines the health and well-being of every facet of our lives; it determines our economic health, emotional health, spiritual health, social health, physical health, relational health, and our sense of inner fulfillment.

In other words, if we have a positive mental condition we will experience a thriving economic condition, emotional stability, peace of mind, spiritual growth, sound mental development, sound physical health, happy and fulfilling relationships with people, and fulfilling life.

In contrast, if we have a negative mental condition we experience poverty, ill health, relationship crisis, stunted or declining spiritual and mental growth, emotional turmoil, and inner emptiness.

In fact, a harmful mental condition can perpetuate itself in all areas of life and cause the death of success which establishes the reign of failure in life. Our mental condition is determined by the choice of our thoughts and the level of consciousness we operate in.

 We were designed to lead balanced lives growing, expanding, and unfolding spiritually, mentally, and materially which births love, joy, peace, wealth, true expression, and true place in life. Every condition experienced in life is preceded by a mental condition.

RECONDITION AND PROGRAM YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS

Your dominant thoughts are the dominant forces of your life working to create and attract your dominant experiences and circumstances. What you think about consistently you become insistently.  What you believe you will behold; what you behold you will behave and what you behave you will create and attract into your life.

 Depreciating conditions of life perpetuates when the condition of the mind deteriorates. Take out the trash from your mind if you do not want to experience a destiny crash.

REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS WITH POSITIVE

Your neck-up determines your move up and there are no limits to how farther you can go. Your neck-down is very limited in value. Unfortunately, people spend large chunks of time and money feeding and tending to the neck-down while neglecting or even ignoring the neck-up and they wonder why their lives are not moving up.

You’ve got to unlearn old limiting and degrading thought patterns, learn and relearn principles that make for a high soaring destiny and act on them. You are what you physically eat and just the same way you become what you mentally eat. Input determines output. 

Block out negative thoughts from dwelling in your mind by thinking about the positives and you will lock out a failing life and hook up to a soaring destiny.

The law of substitution states you can only hold one thought at a time; either positive or negative thought. Intentionally feed your mind daily with uplifting, inspiring information.

  • Give yourself to reading, meditation, reflection, and visualization and affirming what is noble, good, and uplifting such as the Scriptures and other great inspiring books as you create your ideal life.
  • Listen to inspiring and motivational messages and music that upholds the good and builds you up, helping you gain altitude.
  • Watch empowering television, videos, and movies that will make you become a better person and inspire you to greatness.
  • Have a plan for personal and professional development.

People who complain of a lack of time to intentionally feed the mind with good books or materials usually lack the perception of the value of their self-worth and destiny. Build a life of wisdom for yourself and you won’t labor in a life of foolishness.

Therefore, invest in good materials and feed on them and you add good value to your life; consequently, the good value will flow through you to others.

CHANGE YOUR SELF-TALK

It has been ascertained that 95 percent of emotions are determined by self-talk – the way you talk to yourself and your explanatory pattern. When you master your self-talk you master your thoughts, feelings and actions consequently, you master your future.

CHANGE YOUR FOCUS

Focus on where you want to go while maximizing the present rather than focusing on where you have been and the problems of the present. Your life will always move in the direction of your focus.    

You’ve got to train yourself to think and talk about the things you want; you’ve got to train yourself to take control of your mind and keep your thoughts focused on where you want to go and what you must do to get there. Focus on how you can succeed and also on how you can help others succeed. Become solution driven rather than problem conscious.

Therefore, stop reviewing problems in your mind rather review your goals and renew your mind towards solutions and act on your resolutions.
