Happy New Month!!!!!!!!
And Welcome to another amazing edition of the lighthouse!!!!
Thank you all for riding with me on this journey and if you are just joining, a big shout out to you!!!!
Remember, we started a series last week on “what makes the difference?”, that series will be concluded today. Click below if you are yet to read.
Have you ever wondered why sometimes, speakers/pastors/coaches make you see awesome possibilities that can happen with your life but for some reasons, you just can’t see it?
This opens me up to another important factor which is Mindedness:
Mindedness is simply the state of the heart. You could either be open minded or close minded.
Being open minded simply means the readiness to open the window of your mind to a world of endless possibilities. Being close minded, on the other hand, means allowing layers of barriers such as limiting beliefs & prejudices stop you from seeing far and beyond.
Close mindedness is why people shout half-hearted “Amens” to prayers. It’s why people don’t believe they could become multimillionaires despite going for a financial freedom seminar.
It goes beyond the tip of the tongue. You have to be able to see with the eyes of the mind and believe wholeheartedly that whatever you desire could be yours. This makes a whole lot of difference and sets you apart.
You have to be intentional about being open-minded. You’ve got to remove the veils of limiting beliefs, experiences, prejudices that shut your mind from seeing that you can be more. Trust me, if you can see it with inner eyes of your mind, then your outer eyes will definitely behold it, sooner or later
And Finally, Intentionality:
One of my favourite persons once said “knowledge acquired is nothing, knowledge applied is everything ”
Disappointment is the gap between expectation and reality and to bridge this gap, deliberate actions are imperative.
Desired results and change can only be seen when we intentionally act on acquired knowledge, these actions could include:
Stop clichéing Jotting: It’s funny how we often jot down our light bulb moments with excitement but rarely ever go back to them. We often forget that as beautiful and life-changing the insights we receive are, they’re usually very volatile and require a conscious effort from us to sustain the giddiness we felt the first time and yield the anticipated result. Sometimes, when I come across my jottings, I am amazed at the insights I had scribbled down and just dumped somewhere. It’s important to always go back to your jotters to re-energize and refuel your mind.
Meditating is simply thinking and thinking and also opening up your mind while at it. It is not worrying and it’s not restricted to the walls of religion.
It could be done by revisiting your jottings or simply sitting down to reminisce on all the earlier acquired knowledge. In meditating about what you learnt, new lightbulb moments begin to flash through your mind and you begin to see and understand how you can relate and apply the insights gotten to your personal life.
Action plans: Finally and most importantly, create an action plan around what you have learnt and discovered. It should be simple, straightforward and achievable.
I personally think this is the most important step because there’s no change without a corresponding action.
Tony Robbin said “the path to success is to take massive determined actions”
The change you desire is in you!!!
YOU make all the difference!!!
