Motivational Message Of The Week: Our Minds Define Us & Control Our Success


The Great Gautama Buddha once recognized the foundation on which our well being and success as Human Beings rest and simplified the complex nature of our ups and downs in life by saying “We are what we think”. A stretch of this will mean, we become what we want to become in our minds.

He might have plagiarised this saying from ancient teachings and scriptures but that should not be of any relevance to this post. What we need to know is not the source of this simple principle of fetching success but the power behind our own minds.

It might sound ludicrous to be told that, most of our failures in life are as a result of our own thinking. Yes, you’re the devil bewitching you own success and progress in life.

No matter how absurd this may sound to your supreme intellect, it is an undisputed fact that, when you fail in your mind before you even set off a journey, you will surely fail on your way. If you begin by thinking you cannot jump a hurdle, do not bother jumping because you will surely not be able to jump it.

If “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog” that matters, then surely it is not the size of our minds we channel towards success that matters but the success in our minds.

Our success and zeal to continue chasing our desire in life is in tuned with our confidence and perseverance level. Confidence and perseverance dwells in our mind, making the mind the most effective and instrumental source of success in life.

Do not give way to negativity in your mind as it will certainly manifest in your every day life. Negative thoughts breed negative results. This is a disease whose cure is only at its source, the mind.

The mind carries a moving power that performs a dual function of push and pull depending on the direction we place it.  Your success will be pushed far away from all your tedious efforts when you fail in your mind. Any element of doubt in your mind gives way to uncertainties in your success.

A positive mindset is followed by a strong force of pull that drags success into our lives.  The failure and success in our everyday life is largely controlled and determined by the power our minds discharge towards our goal.

Why are you masking your own success with failure (negative thoughts)? Why are you bewitching the greatness that stands not far from you with doubts?

My deepest fear in life is that, our minds are powerful beyond measure and yet we do not know. Engrave success and good deeds in your everyday thinking and it will manifest in your everyday life. The evil we think breeds the misfortunes we encounter. Acknowledge the power and might of the mind and direct it positively towards your goal.

  1. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog” that matters’, so true…great quote. I have to agree with this post about taking responsibility for our won failures due to lack of confidence that we may have in ourselves. I guess the trick is to realize and know you’re even doing this and once you realise that you are your own worst enemy in your lack of success, you then have the added challenge of putting a stop to this very bad habit…as that is what I believe thinkin in this way is…a very bad habit. But in a way this is good to know because it seems like your article is saying you have control so take it and use it! Don’t be tempted to blame your failures on external circumstances…Yep I can’t argue with you on this one Chris. I think this is one to read over and few times and keep coming back to so it cements in your mind and bad habits of defeatist thinking can be broken. Hmmm seems you Chris are surely not one that falls in the above category! 😉 at least readers and commenters can never say you never do anything positive and uplifting…this is a great post. Thanks and as always God Bless Ya. x
