Change Your Mind

Image 5

There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind. You can change your hair, your clothing, your address, your spouse, your residence, but if you don’t change your mind, the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over and over again. Why? Because everything has outwardly changed, but nothing inwardly changed.

The first step for me was my hair – thinking it will change my mindset. Yes it was a start… But it wasn’t enough. I realized the only thing that’s going to make me happy this year unlike any other year, is if I step up. It was to raise my standards, to discover what I’m capable of and to find that incredible power that’s deep down inside of me that’s pushing through whatever is trying to hold me back from getting to the other side of being who I am really called to be.

You know deep down who you’re meant to be so get up right now and do something about it. When you decide to step into your fears and continue to push yourself to go on, something great is bound to happen, only if you allow it to.

If you look at someone great and you think “Wow, this person has done and accomplished so much” you need to realise that, that person has gone through trials and tribulations, and wars in their mind that tried to stop them from being who they are at their full potential.

If you are going to spend your time going around “talking” about what you were called to do, like you need to convince people because you need their approval, and you cannot build the courage to put your faith in God knowing that He is in control. Whats going to happen is that you are going to lose your drive, and eventually ‘people’ are going to convince you that what you are doing has no value, and you are going to give up on your dream… I tell you this with the utmost sincerity in my heart. You DO NOT need the opinions of people to get you to where you need to be. The only opinion you need is God, He will guide you and get you to be where you need to be if you walk in His calling for your life.

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

If you want something you need to be relentless. The power to hold on in spite of everything… The ability to face defeat again and again without giving up! You can only have what it is you want if you are willing to take that first step of faith.. It isn’t easy, trust me I know. But it’s so worth it. You need to say to yourself, “I’m not going to let anything stop me, I deserve this!”

We go through life living in fear of the unknown, never knowing if it will work out… But what if it does? How will you know if you do not take that step of faith to change your mindset? So, the only convincing you need to be doing right now is convincing yourself – every day, every night, not giving in to your humanly abilities, but telling yourself that you can do it and NOTHING is going to stop you.

I know this post may seem a bit deep. My absence from my blog over the past year has been a challenging one. I hope and pray that as I inspire you through my fashion and lifestyle, that I would also inspire you to push on and that no dream is too small to dream.

You have greatness within you!

So this has been my changed mindset for 2016.. What’s yours?
