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 infomation 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.
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.
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 no longer live their life or dreams. Someone else tells them what to believe and 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).
Drug companies don't want you to believe 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 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 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 you find there.
You will have to control what you allow into your mind, and 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 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 achieve a complete and balanced workout.
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 to set aside a specific time each day to fill your mind with good things.
On my way to work and on my way home after work, I listen to Positive Podcasts.
When I go for a hike I pump mental iron by listening to Positive Podcasts.
Before I go to sleep at night, I review Positive Scriptures.
The Positive Thinking Network has hundreds of positive websites, and it is a great place to visit to start pumping mental iron.
Don't be a mental wimp. Start pumping positive mental iron today.

Affirmations give you the power to change what is in your heart. Affirmations do more than change the way you think; they also change the way you feel.

That is why affirmations are so valuable. You can repeat them until you overwhelm the inner skeptic and change the way you feel.
