You hold the Key!

hand-holding-gold-key-15113389As a being of Power, Intelligence and Love, and the Lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to Every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills. -James Allen

If you succumb to weak, negative thoughts, you become their slave and are now in the same bracket  as a foolish leader who misgoverns his “household”.  You lose control and self respect.  You now become the victim of self-sabotage.

BUT, as soon as you lasso those thoughts and bring them under subjection to the truth that establishes that law within, you then become a wise master builder who can think and see clearly, walking confidently not in intimidation or fear.  This allows you to attract and manifest the good you desire to see operate in your life.  This puts you in a position to now make wise decisions to begin rectifying your current state.  The clouds will dissipate as you set your thoughts on good things.  You will see the enemy coming from afar off.  You will recognize the tactics and nip those negative thoughts at the onset.
I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way…
Setting your mind on good, pure, honest, noble, meritorious, and hopeful things is a practice you must set in place on a consistent basis.  You will forever have opportunities to dwell on things that add no value to your life whatsover.  But know that through constant self-analysis and experience you will make yourself stronger and more skillful.
Be careful not to be in denial and think you have it all together and that by your own effort you have created a wealthy state.  Pride comes before a fall.  Acknowledge the one and only true and living God for all that he has given and fortified you with.
When my attitude becomes unappealing I have to ask myself “why?”  Why am I irritated, upset or easily disturbed? Understand and deal with the root cause of why you feel the way you do or why you do what you do. When you start analyzing this you will see patterns and be able to match a thought with a reaction.
Learn from your mistakes. Why do you overspend or shop without boundaries?  Why do you get upset if someone challenge your integrity?  Do you rehearse situations over and over again wondering what you could have or should have done?  Are you a people pleaser or a God pleaser?  These are just some examples of scenarios you may find to be triggers. When you are able to look from the outside in and ask why, you will become empowered with the solution.

Want to improve your circumstances?

If you want to improve your circumstances then you must improve yourself!

fightclubDo you find yourself fighting against the circumstances or blaming others for your circumstances?  We all have been guilty of this at one time or another.  We might blame someone for our decisions, our actions or our current state, but if we are honest with ourselves, we would admit that we are the author of our current state.  It’s not to say that no one else participated in the events but we cannot put the total blame on someone else.  Our reaction or response to the situation is what will determine the outcome.  For example; will you stay broke because someone messed up your credit and you can’t get a loan to better your education in hopes of getting that better job with better pay to pay those overdue bills?  Catch 22 right!  Wrong!  You need to change the way you think!
Get up out of the rut of “Woe is me“, and dust yourself off.  Reignite the drive within you by changing your mindset, which is renewing your mind with positive, powerful thoughts.  Then once you have started the flame within, blow upon it.  You are more powerful than you realize!
Here’s an insert from my book, “Unleash Your Renewed Mind“,

Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes that he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself.  That circumstances grow out of thought every man knows who has for any length of time practiced self-control and self-purification, for he will have noticed the alteration in his circumstances has been in exact ratio with his altered mental condition.  -James Allen

In other words, if you apply yourself to change the way you think you have the power to change the way you LIVE!  Circumstances don’t define you!  You were never created to conform to your outward conditions, you were born to create and transform them.  So as long as you believe you are a victim of circumstances then you will always been beaten down by them.  But, when you realize that what you see comes from what you don’t see, and that your thoughts become things you will become the general contractor of your life’s blueprint.  Start commanding your thoughts with your words and start seeing your world line up with your desires.

Renew your Mind

I’m very excited because I am launching my new video compilation to help you renew your mind, called…

“The Renewal Series”!

These videos go alongside of my book “Unleash Your Renewed Mind”.  I had been working on the book for over a year and published the book August of 2014 and I finally completed the video series in early 2015.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.  Proverbs 23:7
This book coupled with the video series will definitely help you to transform your situations rather than conform to them. Don’t be conformed to your circumstances but transform them by renewing your mind.  You were created to rule and reign in this life. But you can only prosper in life to the degree your inward person, your soul, is prospering.

You can be sure that you attract what you dwell on, be it good or bad.

You hold the key to every situation.
Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself.
-James Allen
