People have not realized that their thoughts control their life. If you don’t agree with this truth, carefully observe your thoughts daily, and you will realize that you are the major actor who has been acting out the scripts of your own thoughts. In fact, you are the executive director and also the major actor of the movie of your own life. The people in your world and in the whole world generally, only play the specific roles you give them. Sadly, most people have not still realized that just as they write the scripts for themselves with their own thoughts; they also assign those specific roles for other people to play in their life with their own thoughts.
Indeed, life is just a movie; a real movie. We are all directors and actors in the movie of life. The greatest directors and actors in this movie of life are those who have mastered the game of the mind. This game of the mind is not just a game of fun; it is a battle, a real battle. As a result of this battle, many have been wounded and are still bleeding profusely in this life. Many of the casualties of this battle are currently living miserable lives. Apparently, the only battle that every human is expected to fight from the very day of accountability until the very day of death is this secret battle. This secret battle is the battle of our thoughts. The victory in this battle depends on the thoughts that dominate our mind.
The greatest battle of life we encounter daily is the fight to maintain the right kind of thoughts. Most people have not still realized that this is the greatest battle in this life. Every other battle is just a continuation from this battle. If we can train ourselves to maintain the right kind of thoughts in our mind; then, life will surely reward us with the right things. On the other hand, if we do not train our minds to maintain the right kind of thoughts; then, we have unknowingly destroyed our own walls of protection and have made ourselves vulnerable to every form of negative experience in this life. Thus, we must constantly strive to maintain the right kind of thoughts in our mind every time.
Indeed, this is not an easy task. It requires dedication and will surely take some time. However, if we want to live in the reality of our dreams, we must give this task our very best and receive the very best from life. Remember, the more we do it, the better we become at it. Don’t join the bandwagon of those who start it and stop halfway. Clearly write down the things you wish to think on every day. Ensure that you keep your mind on those things irrespective of the challenges you may face. Whenever you stray away from those things that you have clearly written down, deliberately make your mind to return to them. Soon, you will master the art and enjoy the benefits. Remember, “for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).
