When you control your mind, you control your life. Until you learn how to control your mind, you will never control your life. Always remember that your mind is sacred ground, and never abdicate control to anyone or anything.
Your mind is not a quiet place. Along with the gift of consciousness comes a million helter skelter thoughts that echo endlessly in your mind. Your mind does not sit quietly waiting for you to think up a thought. From the instant you arise in the morning, it soaks up every sight, sound, and input in your world and associates those inputs with the data already stored in your memory banks.
It performs this task automatically and autonomously. It does it even when you don't want it to. It's never quiet, and there is no off switch. Even when you are asleep, your mind is still at work below your level of consciousness. Every now and then it wakes you up with a vivid dream to remind you that it's still there and is running your life.
The mind is a scary thing when it's out of control. It can give you dreams that make your hair stand on end. It can tell you to do things that are not in your best interest. It even leads some people down the path of self-destruction.
When your mind is in control, it is your servant, and it can lead to the pinnacle of success.
When your mind is out of control, you may not survive what it has to say. When your mind is manipulated by those with an evil agenda, you become the pawn of the powerful - a pawn of those who want to control your mind. All of the great battles on planet earth happen first in the mind. That's where fear does it's dastardly deed. A single fearful thought planted in enough minds can change the course of history.
The people who control your mind control your life.
Your mind is the single most powerful control point in your life. The most important decision you will ever make is who is going to control your mind. Is the government going to control it? Is your boss going to control it? Is your family going to control it? Is your culture going to control it? Is your religion going to control it? Are you going to control it?
Inside your brain is a switch that most people don't even know exists. It's a switch that gives you the power to control your thoughts. The instant you flip the switch, you control your mind and your life, and if you never flip that switch, then by default your mind will be controlled by others. Your family, culture, employer, government, and religion will make and mold your thoughts; they will control the way you think and feel.
I taught my children that they must always run their own brain. They must never turn off their mind or surrender control to anyone else. God gave everyone a mind, and He expects them to control it and use it in a way that makes the world a better place. The instant they turn off their brain and let someone else control it, their life is over. They are no longer living their life or dreams. Someone else is telling them what to believe, how to think, and they begin living the dreams of other people.
Many forces in society conspire to convince you that you cannot control your mind. Drug manufacturers would have you believe that it's impossible to control your mind on your own. They are more than happy to control your thoughts with drugs. They are in the business of mind control. If they had their way, when you think an anxious thought, they would give you an anti-anxiety drug. When you are depressed, they give you one or more antidepressant drugs. When you are agitated, there's a drug for that. For every unwanted state of mind, there is a drug (mind control medication). They don't want you to believe that it's actually possible to control your thoughts without putting their chemical straight jacket on your mind. The one thing a drug company will never do is tell you that you have the power control your thoughts on your own without their chemicals.
Medical professionals become unwilling participants in this dangerous game, because it's easier and quicker to write a prescription for a drug than it is to take the time to sit down with a patient and teach them how to regain control of their thoughts. It requires only seconds to prescribe a chemical straight jacket for the mind. It may require years of counseling and therapy to solve the problem rather than only suppress it with a chemical straight jacket.
There was a time when Valium was the most prescribed drug on planet earth. There are so many psychoactive drugs in use that they have percolated down into our water table, and they pollute our water supply.
The battle for a positive mind is now being fought on a chemical battlefield. But it doesn't have to be that way.
It actually is possible to have a positive mind in most people without the use of drugs. There will always be a small portion of the population that requires medications for the mental challenges they face. For individuals with serious mental disorders, medications are a godsend, and without them there would be no hope. But for most people, drugs are a poor answer, and they are not their friend. Instead of solving problems, they suppress them. Instead of making them mentally fit, they make them feel better while the underlying problems do not change.
When you look at a newborn baby, you don't see any signs of mental turmoil. That baby doesn't have a single twisted thought. It only takes a few years to transform that child into an anxious, conflicted person. Society will teach that child that he needs drugs to control his thoughts. In just a few years the child will self-medicate himself with alcohol and a wide variety of chemicals to calm the storm of thoughts blowing through his mind.
Mind control is big business, and it makes the world go round. On a personal level, it also makes your world go round, and if you don't control your mind, you will not control your life. Period. Exclamation point!
The most important battle on planet earth is the battle for control of the human mind. He who controls the way people think will rule the planet. It's not the meek who inherit the earth; it's those who control your mind. The powerful don't want your money. They want to control the way you think, because when they control your mind, they have everything. Getting control of your mind is the hard part. Taking your money, your children, and your possessions is easy once they have control of your thoughts.
You can tell how much mind control is happening in society by the level of fear.
Governments convince people to surrender their freedom using the gospel of fear. Fear based marketing is now the darling of the free market. You can get people to buy anything when you package fear in the product.
When people tell me I should be afraid, they either don't know what they are talking about, they are trying to control me with fear, or they want to sell me something as an antidote to the fearful world that they are trying to cultivate in my mind.
The battle lines on planet earth are now drawn, and it's time to decide whether you are going to run your own mind, or if you are going to let other people control the way you think.
If you decide to run your own mind, you will have to pump some serious mental iron. You will be going against the flow, and the world is not going to give up without a fight. The world really does want to control the way you think.
You will have to become proactive and assume full control of your mind and the thoughts that you find there.
You will have to control what you allow into your mind.
You will have to reject the gospel of fear.
A positive mind is not an accident, and creating a positive mind involves discipline and hard work. Pumping positive mental iron is a life long task that is never over.
Is it hard? Yes.
Is it worth it? Absolutely. There is no other way to live your dreams and take control of your life.
Pumping positive mental iron is not a mystery. It is simply a series of positive actions that you take every day to control the way you think.
Go to any fitness club and watch people pump iron. The gym has machines that tone all the major muscle groups in the body. Some machines focus on a cardio workout that increases cardiovascular fitness. Good gyms are arranged in a manner so that if you use all the machines, you will achieve a complete and balanced workout that results in fitness.
Most people don't have a program to achieve mental fitness. They have lots of mental flab, and their mental muscles are puny. Their mental endurance is extremely limited. They are mental wimps because they never pump mental iron.
If you want to control your thoughts and rule your mind, you will have to pump mental iron in a well-rounded mental work out every day.
What can you do to have a complete mental work out?
The best way to start your mental work out is with a Positive Newsletter from the Positive Thinking Network.

Pumping mental iron requires time and effort, but it's not really that hard. It mostly requires discipline so that you set aside a specific time each day to fill your mind with good things.
I start out the day counting twenty blessings the instant I wake up. I follow that up with thanking God for twenty positive things that He has done in my life.
On my way to work and on my way home after work, I listen to positive podcasts.
When I go for a hike I also pump mental iron by listening to positive podcasts.
Before I go to sleep at night, I review positive scriptures.

If you want to change the way you think and feel, you are going to have to change your inner dialogue. You are going to have to talk to your mind in a different manner.

Many people believe change is impossible. Most of the time they are confusing personality with personal behavior. The basic human personality is relatively constant over time, but human behavior can and does change. Personal change happens when people change the way they think. I have numerous patients formerly addicted to meth, cocaine, heroine, and alcohol, who escaped their addictions without ever going to rehab for treatment. They simply arrived at a point in their life where they no longer wanted to be prisoners of their addictions. They had experienced enough misery to last ten lifetimes, and they said no more. They changed their belief about who they are and what they can do with their life, and they became a different person who was chemical free. I am grateful to those patients, because they proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that people in the worst circumstances can and do change. Because of them, I am committed to helping people change their lives one belief at a time using positve self-talk. Positive Self-Talk Yellow Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.
Mark Twain wrote, “Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts or happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing though one’s head.” Mark Twain was right. Life consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that blow through your mind. The events of life can be trivial, tragic, and even monumental in nature, but the events themselves have little power. It’s the storm of thoughts about those events that controls our lives. Surviving the storm of thoughts is how we spend most of our time. No matter what we do, the storm still blows, and to a significant degree shapes our lives. Surviving the storm is something we do every day all day long. An entourage of thoughts accompanies each event in our lives. Those thoughts can be positive, negative, or most likely, something in between. Those thoughts are the battleground where we come to our agreement with life. Those thoughts define who we are and what we can do. You need to learn how to control the storm of thoughts blowing through your mind. Positive Self-Talk Gold Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.
You can change who you are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind. Just be sure you are speaking a language your mind understands. Your brain speaks to you in its own language, and if you speak to it in the same way, it immediately responds in a powerful fashion. That’s why change proceeds most rapidly when you talk to yourself using the language of the mind. If you don’t speak the language of the mind, you may as well stop talking until you learn it. The three most powerful components of the language of the mind are images, sounds, and emotions. When my brain wants to get my attention, it does not send a text or an email. It blows me away with sights, sounds, and emotions. If you want to get your brain’s attention, you need to do the same thing. Send a message full of sights, sounds, and emotions. Start speaking the language that your mind understands. Positive Self-Talk Silver Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

I will live the rest of my life as if I am a great person. I will live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. I will act as if I cannot fail. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
Limiting thoughts are a disguised form of negation. They are a way that I say no to life while pretending that life is saying no to me. Limitations are plausible self-deceptions. They are prefabricated excuses for every failure to be what I want to be and to do what I want to do. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
I can make a living or make a life. When I make a living, I focus on survival. When I make a life, I focus on my dreams. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
Change first happens in my mind. Whatever I am or ever will be is first found in my mind. In order to have a new life, I need a new way of thinking. That is where everything starts. I can change who I am by changing what I put into my mind. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
If I am having trouble geting permission to do the things I want to do, I need to take a look in the mirror. The person in the mirror is the only one who can give me permission to go for my dreams. All other permission rituals are irrelevant. My life is mine alone, and that is sufficient authority to grant whatever permission is required. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
The way I use my mind defines what it means to be me. At the most basic level, I am what I think about all day long. My mind is the only part of me that can change or that would ever be worth changing. If I want to change who I am, I must change the collection of thoughts that defines what it means to be me. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
I will live the rest of my life as if I am a great person. I will practice being great each day of my life. I have only one life, and I may as well make it a great one. I have little to lose and much to gain by living as if I am great. I will live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
A positive mind is not an accident. It's the product of positive mental focus. A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
Positive Christian Self-Talk is as much about God as it is about you. The self-talk contained in this book is designed to change your life. You learn to think the way that God thinks and speak the way that God speaks so that your self-talk has real power. It's time to get in agreement with God about who you are and what you can do with your life. It's time to speak your new life into existence. Jesus said, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you." Jesus was talking about positive expectations. You don't get what you want, you get what you expect. It doesn't matter if your expectations are positive or negative, you still get what you expect. If you want positive self-talk to work in your life, all of your self-talk must be forged in the fires of positive expectations. It's time to jump into God's ocean of love and have a life changing experience. Positive Christian Self-Talk points your life in the right direction and gives you the power to make the trip. Positive Christian Self-Talk is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

When Jesus said, "As you believe, so shall it be done to you," he meant exactly what he said. He created a universe in which positive expectations rule. It doesn't matter than much what you want. It's what you expect that counts.Positive Christian Self-Talk
Living small serves no great purpose. Living as if you are a great person is a powerful idea that changes lives, and those who take it seriously change their world. Living as if you are great means you live as if your dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. You act as if you cannot fail. In order to live as if you are great, you have to think the way great people think, talk the way great people talk, and act the way great people act. Great people think, talk, and act their dreams into existence. If you ever become great, it will be because you think great thoughts, repeat great self-talk, have great expectations, and act as if you cannot fail. Some people wrongly believe that change is impossible. Leopards don't change their spots, and zebra stripes are forever. But people are different. People change their stars. They change their stripes, and their spots disappear in an instant of time. That instant happens the moment they develop positive expectations and believe they have the power to change. Positive self-talk and positive expectations can take you anywhere you want to go. Positive Self-Talk Purple Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

Limiting thoughts are a disguised form of negation. They are a way that I say no to life while pretending that life is saying no to me.Positive Self-Talk Purple Book
Limitations are a subtle form of negativity that is socially acceptable. They don't have a bad sound or smell. It even has the appearance of maturity to not struggle with reality and to accept the limitations that appear to be present in the world.Positive Self-Talk Purple Book

A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. The same is true of your self-talk. It must be persistent, positive, and specific to have maximum impact. Lack of persistentce has laid more dreams to rest in the cemetery of failure than any other cause. There is zero chance that you will succeed on your first attempt. If your dreams are great, You will fail again and again on your way to the top. Before you can be great, you have to be good. Before you can be good, you have to be bad. Before you can be bad, you have to try. Millions of people stop at try. Thousands get stuck at bad. Hundreds quit at good. A few go all the way to great. If you don't have persistence, you willl never make the trip from try to bad to good to great.

More than one-hundred Power Graphics contain powerful thoughts that you need to have in your mind. Positive Self-Talk Red Book is now available at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.
A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. Positive Self Talk Red Book
Your brain is an affirming machine, and it spends all its waking hours affirming things about who you are and what you can do with your life. You brain is positive about everything in your life. It may be wrong, but it is never in doubt.Positive Self Talk Red Booke
Your mind is positive about many things that are simply untrue. It affirms all of your limiting beliefs from the past.Positive Self Talk Red Book
Although your mind is an affirming machine, you don't have to believe everything it says. If you believe everything your mind tells you, it will not be long before you are in trouble. The brain excels in its ability to pump out affirmations, but it's a miserable failure at separating truth from error and the positive from the negative.Positive Self Talk Red Book
When your mind pumps out negative affirmations, it becomes a weapon of mass destruction that ruins your life.Positive Self Talk Red Book
