THE MIND OF MAN<br /><ul><li>The mind is the center of consciousness that generates thoughts, feelings, ideas, and perceptions, and stores knowledge and memories.
It is the capacity to think, understand, and reason.
The state of the mind of man controls the body because every action of the mind produces a certain effect in the body
The mind of man is the tool with which he creates what does not exist
When we look at something we do not want and are worried about it, we are not actually pushing it away but we are rather re-creating it.
When we concentrate on what we want, what we do not want disappear
The ability to transcend beyond our own physical limitations lies in the mind
Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve. Clement N. Stone (1902-2002)</li></li></ul><li>POSITIVE THINKING: YOUR KEY TO FULFILLING GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE<br /><ul><li>It is a demonstration of our faith in Christ
It makes what we do not want disappear</li></ul>(Whenever an individual has a thought or a prolonged way of thinking, they are in a creation process and something is definitely going to manifest out of their thinking)<br />
POSITIVE THINKING IS CONTAGIOUS<br /> People around you pick your mental moods and are affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good health and success, and you will cause people to like you and desire to help you, because they enjoy the vibrations that a positive mind emits.<br />You are who you think you are and you become what you think about because whatever you think about and care about, you bring about<br />
CHARACTERISTICS OF A POSITIVE THINKING MIND<br /><ul><li>They have inner joy and peace
They always see something good in every situation
They are not disturbed by what others think of them
They are always rich (Riches here is subjective because what one considers rich may differ from person to person)</li></li></ul><li>DEVELOPING A POSITIVE-THINKING MIND<br />In order to make positive thinking yield results, you need to develop a positive attitude toward life, expect a successful outcome of whatever you do, but also take any necessary actions to ensure your success.<br />Think positive and expect only favorable results and situations, even if your current circumstances are not as you wish them to be. In time, your mental attitude will affect your life and circumstances and change them accordingly.<br />
HOW TO DEVELOP A POSITIVE-THINKING MIND<br /><ul><li>Seek the guidance of God in every decision you take and in everything you do. Prov. 4: 5 – 7
Always use only positive words while thinking and while talking
Allow into your awareness only feelings of happiness, strength and success.
Try to disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to think such thoughts, and substitute them with constructive happy thoughts.</li></li></ul><li>HOW TO DEVELOP A POSITIVE-THINKING MIND cont.<br /><ul><li>In your conversation use words that evoke feelings and mental images of strength, happiness and success. (happiness is the fuel of success.)
Before starting with any plan or action, visualize clearly in your mind its successful outcome. If you visualize with concentration and faith, you will be amazed at the results.(Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Albert Einstein; 1879-1955)
Read at least one page of inspiring book every day.

Minimize the time you listen to the news and read the papers.
Associate yourself with people who think positively. (You can only attract the things that vibrate in harmony with you)
Always sit and walk with your back straight. This will strengthen your confidence and inner strength.
