Your mind is the richest place in the world
If you want to build a strong future, if you want to live a quality lifestyle, if you desire to maximize your potentials, you need to use one of the most powerful gifts God has given you to get what you want.
I love and respect Dr. Myles Munroe a lot. He is my mentor and great inspiration. I have learnt so much from him through his books, tapes and teachings. To me, that man is a living legend who certainly deserves a place in history’s hall of fame. In a bid to encourage us to use our potentials and for us not to fall victim to mediocrity, he argues that the richest place in the world is the cemetery.
According to this revered academic, the cemetery is filled with dreams that were never born, songs that were never sung, ministries that were never born, churches that were never built, books that were never written, ideas that never saw the light of the day and so forth. But I beg to disagree with my mentor. The richest place is not the cemetery. It is not the gold mines of Congo or Gold Coast, neither the diamond fields of South Africa nor the oil fields in the Middle East or Nigeria, the richest place in the entire world is your mind.
You need your mind therefore to scale the greatest heights you’re targeting. Without your mind, nothing you do in this life can come out successfully. The mind is so important that when someone loses it, he becomes insane and is reduced to an ordinary human specimen. There is no individual who loses his mind and stays OK. This shows the importance of the mind and what that divine equipment can do for you.
What do you do with your mind to enhance the quality of your life?
1.Think with your mind. The Scripture says as a man thinks, so he is. Without your mind, you can’t think, and if you can’t think, you’ll stink.
2.Work with your mind. Your mind helps you to discover how you can do something better, faster, cheaper or better. Your mind is not just for calculations; it is to move you always to a new level.
3.Project with your mind. Successful people make projections with their mind. They don’t live from month to month without a goal that inspires them. Use your mind to make projections concerning your life.
4.Plan with your mind. He who fails to plan, plans to fail. As Ben Carson, the world-class and renowned neurosurgeon observed, “… the average person spends more time planning his or her birthday party than planning his or her life. Most of us are wasting those amazing frontal lobes (brain).” Your mind is not for mere decoration; it is for the decoration of your destiny.
5.Pray with your mind. Man is a spiritual being. So prayer is very important. When you pray with your mind, you are making it fertile to receive fresh ideas that have the capacity to change your life.
6.Write down the ideas and products from your mind. Your mind is very powerful, however it easily falls victim to forgetfulness. So always keep a paper and pen handy to write down the ideas, suggestions and products that come to you from your mind.
7.Invest in your mind. Your mind needs to be fed, just like your body needs to be fed. For your mind not to be malnourished, you need to feed it with the right kind of information. Attend seminars, read good books and magazines, listen to good and professional tapes and CDs. Stretch the frontiers of your mind, if you desire to be a winner.
These things will change you forever, and really make your mind the richest place it was designed to be. Till the next edition, when we shall be looking at The Richest Place In The World, Part 3, it’s bye for now.
