Your brain’s power is incredible! Think about it. The way the brain operates is mind-blowing. Your brain transforms letters, numbers, sounds, and images into information. What a creative masterpiece. We experience the benefits of the creative masterpieces of others. As I type this blog, my thoughts are transformed into letters that create words and sentences, typed on a keyboard that records every stroke. Wow! Nothing we do, have, or experience that a powerful mind hasn’t touched. No wonder distractions can become our most significant hurdles and a source of a blessing blocker. Let’s look at the definition of a distraction. A distraction is “a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else or the process of interrupting attention.” Another definition says that it is “an extreme agitation of the mind or emotions.” Let’s just be honest; distractions surround us. Some of the very things that are a manifestation of the power of the mind are also distractions. I love this quote… “distractions are the death of your dreams in slow motions!”
Leaning into focus is one of the most important skills you will need. Suppose you would take just a moment and ponder just how impactful it would be to tap into the power of your mind and zoom in on the things you want to transform your reality. Now, reflect on what you could accomplish. What would you achieve? How might your life be different? What would you notice?
Here’s how you can use your mind to transform your reality:
Learn how to use your mind positively to transform your thoughts from abstract to reality. What does that mean? Focus on your goals and take inspired action. First, get clear about what you want. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve? Once you understand your goals, it will be easier to focus on them. The next step is visualizing what you want to achieve. See yourself achieving your goals and living the life you want. We often start on the good foot, but consistency can be challenging. Imagine yourself taking inspired action every day.
Believe in yourself. Believe you can achieve your goals. When you have doubts, you will disrupt your progress. The self-belief jump starts with you consciously deciding to become your most excellent version. The purposeful version! There is redemptive power in making a firm decision. You can save your life when you make a steadfast decision to change your life.
Take action. Take inspired steps toward your goals. I can’t tell you the number of times I didn’t act on a vision or a dream, and it would come to pass at someone else’s hands. Hold up! Did that happen? Yep! You gotta do something. Make no mistake; inaction is action. If you want results, you’ve got to do something, and only then will you see results, and your life will change. Word to the wise, don’t let your dreams start and end in your sleep, do something with them.
