The power of the mind is incredible. The power of our own emotions, our own imagination, is incredible. We take in so much information around us; ever since we were fetuses, ever since we were babies, we were able to process information. And we continue to do this constantly.
The mind is incredibly powerful…so it’s not surprising that your mind can turn against you.
Sometimes we learn things from our surroundings. We process things without needing to think about it. I can see the doorway ahead of me, therefore I head there, and not into the wall.
However, sometimes things happen in which we do sit down and ponder “What just happened? What does this mean?” And that’s when our mind really becomes powerful.
Because we can influence ourselves, depending on the circumstances or the information we have…or the information we think we have. And the more powerful our mind grows, the more we start to analyze and think about what’s wrong…what’s wrong with ourselves, what’s wrong with this situation, or this event, or that person.
And it so happens that, because our mind is so powerful, but our spirits are weak…we start to doubt.
We doubt ourselves. We doubt the people around us. We don’t even dare to hope, that’s how much we doubt.
Are you powerful enough to overcome your own mind?
Your mind is telling you to doubt. You can’t do it. You’ll never make it. You’re not good enough. The world won’t let you. God won’t let you. This is what your mind is constantly telling you, because you’re so smart, because this is how you processed the information, or how you interpreted the happenings of this or that event.
But are you willing to be stronger than your own mind…and BELIEVE?
Are you willing to have faith? Are you willing to care, even when your mind says it’s stupid?
The mind is strong. So make your spirit stronger. Have faith. It is a quality that all writers must have.
