Sharing is Caring
Throughout this article, the following words: the mind; the thought; the mindset; the mentality (and its related) will be used interchangeably to mean the selfsame thing – even if dictionary wise, they may or may not mean the same thing – as a way of trying to paint a true picture of what I have in mind.
This piece of write up is aimed to unlock your mind to the possibilities of life. I have invested so much efforts to paint my thought in your mind, and hope that after reading this, you will – like a genius – be able to change the way you think.
The mind is a vacuum that houses a world of its own. What you see today is only the manifestation of things once thought impossible. The “IM” in possibility is a prefix that has not only limited so many lives, but have also crippled so many talents, abilities, and dreams.
However, no one can blame any failed success on the mind of the person – reason being that people only judge you in person because they believe YOU not your thought, is the driver of your own life. You are the landlord of your thoughts, and you decides which thought stays and which thought leaves. And remember, what you decide to do with the power of your mind will speak forever in TIME.
The mind is like – let me say: a virtual reality that controls so many people but only a few persons control it. It controls people into committing suicide; rapping girls; to mention but a few other ugly incidents, while those who have successfully controlled their thought, have helped fashion our world in the beauty we now see it, through their many inventions.
When Thomas Edison screamed “I got it! I got it!!” Every person in his generation did not understand what he claimed “he got”. They did not understand what made him scream out loud with so much joy, because they were not thinking like him, of course not until Franklin Benjamin came – one with the same vision; the same mind; the same expectation; the same sense – and made Edison’s thought a well seen reality by providing humanity electricity.
Years ago, a good friend of mine asked me and some group of persons_
“how much money do you hope to amass in your life time as a Net-worth?”The replies where increadible, some persons quoted $100 million Dollars, I said $10 billion Dollars. But when he expressed his thought, he did it so well that it made ours look childish.He said he’d wish to own $1 TRILLION Dollars as his Net worth! Well, for me that was both madness and impossible, why, because my mindset limited me to only $10 BILLION Dollars!Even though at the time, Mr Bill Gates owned $80 billion Dollars.
I read an article about Huawei, how that years ago its founder and chairman: Mr. Ren Zhangfei, one day saw the possibility of owning a telecommunication network that will compete on the same global market with the likes of Samsung and Apple, in telecoms.
At the time Mr Ren Zhangfei thought of this, everything around him did not seem to support him – when I say everything in this wise, I do not mean his family. The economy of China was nothing to write home about for businessmen like himself, his own capital, was so poor at the time, something he clearly said in his own testimony_
“When I first started out 30 years ago, we didn’t really have any telephones. The only phones we had were those hand-cranked phones that you see in old World War II films. We were pretty underdeveloped then. At that time, China was shifting from a planned economy to a market economy. Not only people like myself, but even the most senior government officials, did not have the vaguest idea of what a market economy was. It seemed it was hard to survive.”
However, one day, as the story from the early days of the company tells_
Mr. Ren was cooking for his staff (he loves to cook). Suddenly he rushed out of the kitchen and announced to the room:“Huawei will be a top three player in the global communication market 20 years from now!”
He spoke possibility even before seeing it. And that’s exactly what happened. In fact, those ambitions were surpassed. Today, Huawei is the world’s biggest seller of network telecommunications equipment.
It has also toppled the “once untouchable” Apple and is only second to Samsung, in telecommunications network marketing success. What you see now from Huawei was once a thought in Mr. Ren Zhengfei.
By extension, what you’re reading today originated from a thought; and after much planning, it has now been materialised, all from once a thought. A friend told me not so long ago, that_
“my thinking is way too fast!”I told him, “control it, else you crash way too soon.”
Your mind is your power house. If you can only learn to control it, it is unlimited what you stand to achieve in your life time. When you cannot control your own thoughts, the aftermath result will only be a pity.
“The strongest minds are those which think beyond human imagination, and yet still control their thoughts at will.What you think, is what you see and what you see is what you think. You are what you are, and you have what you have today because of your mindset.Do not allow your mindset limit your talent, your ability, your – you name it yourself! Your mentality is what you make of it, if you see it as a bunch of dumpster, it will only produce a bunch of trash, if you see it as a bunch of impossibilities, it will only produce dead visions.Think positively, feed the mind with positivity and it will grow into success – a visible reality. And always remember that when you weigh your ability below average, you will – at all times – perform below average!However, the moment you enter that realm where you believe nothing is impossible, I tell you, nothing shall be impossible to you.Thinking without motion is failure”.
