WE MUST PROTECT OUR MINDS

There is a battle for our mind, from the emotional enemies INSIDE our mind. What can destroy your dreams, ambitions and even future relationships in our minds? The enemies that lurk inside of us. The ones we face from within; the ones we must destroy before they destroy us. They must be conquered! We have no choice but to conquer our inside enemies and inside fears.


1. Fear is our enemy.

a. We are not born with courage, but again we are not born with fear. Maybe some of our fears are brought on by our own experiences, or by what someone has told us, or what we have read or heard about. Some fears are valid, like being alone in a bad part of town. But once we learn to avoid that situation, we don’t need to live in fear of it.


2. Indifference has hidden consequences.

a. One might say to just let it slide, go along, don’t make waves. Just drift along. But here’s the problem with drifting, we cannot drift our way to the top. Drifting takes you down the wrong path. Protect yourself from becoming a drifter. Indifference attacks our ambition and energy levels, clouds our hope and joy of conquest.


3. Bad habit of indecision.

a. Indecisiveness is the thief of opportunity and prevents you from becoming a Go Getter. It steals the chance of getting ahead for a better future. We have to sooner or later take a sword to this enemy. Better sooner, than later! Decide. If not now, when?


4. Doubt causes indecision.

a. There may be room for healthy skepticism, but don’t go around believing everything. At the same time we cannot let doubt take over our thoughts. Many of us doubt the past, doubt the future, doubt each other, doubt our possibilities and doubt the opportunities. Worst of all, we doubt ourselves. Doubt will eventually wreck our life and our chances of success. It can bankrupt our dreams. Doubt is an enemy. Go after it and get rid of it! Doubt the doubt.


5. Worriers say: if I don’t worry, they will think I don’t care.

a. We cannot let worry conquer us. Worry has never ever once solved our problems, or led us to our purpose and destiny. We cannot let worry run loose, like an angry dog that drives us into a small corner and traps us. Whatever is out to get us, we have to get it. We are the one who drives worry into a small corner. Whatever is pushing on us, we have to push back.


6. Intimidation is a bully.

a. Being self-conscious is having a timid approach to life. If we let it go on, it will conquer us. Intimidation is not a virtue like humility. It will prevent promotion, advancement, growing and becoming aggressive and powerful enough to conquer and succeed. We must avoid becoming over cautious.

b. We battle with the enemy called fear to build courage to fight what’s holding us back, keeping us from reaching our goals and dreams. We choose to be courageous, bold and decisive. Go after what you want and the person you want to become. Learn to handle fear and failures like a true winner. Because that’s who we really are supposed to be. When you truly know who you are, you will easily find your gift, followed by your purpose in life.


7. At the end of the day, we must learn to win, by deciding to face all fears with courage. Putting all remote possibilities out of our minds. Don’t worry about things you have no control over. Don’t think about all the things that might happen. Courageous people don’t fret or worry about things that are out of their control or things that are unlikely to happen. They think about what they can control. It’s imperative that we own our own minds. If we don’t, who will?

a. Face your fears before starting something. Make a list of things that could possibly go wrong, decide what you would do if it happens, and you will more than likely see that the situation is not as bad as you may think. Think of the possibilities, because you probably will never be faced with the situation at all. Be open to chart your course to ensure that it doesn’t happen. Don’t be intimidated by your fears, face your fears. It all depends on how badly you want something. It depends on how you choose to live your life, which steps you will take, following your dreams or living under your circumstances, under achieving your abilities, shrinking back when faced with your Purpose.


A wise man once said, 'expand my tent!'


Think bigger, for yourself, and your family.

Remember,

Life is not measured by fame or fortune, but by friends and faithfulness to your calling.


Go big, go for the top. Coach Jack
