“If someone shows you who they are – BELIEVE THEM!!”
You know so many people in this world change there hair they change there country they change the programs they are watching on television, they change there car, they change there jobs,they change there phones, they change there boyfriends/girlfriends, they change the night clubs, the pubs, they change the bars they go to every Friday
but is this real change?
Is it lasting change?
Is it productive change?
Is it growing change?
Is it financial change?
Then they go home in quiet desperation saying to themselves WHY ME!
Why am I still in the same situation, why is nothing good happening to me, why am I not moving forward, why am I not getting the break which i desperately want.
Well my friends that’s because everything outwardly changed but nothing inwardly changed……
YOU HAVE NOT CHANGED YOUR MIND!!
You are living life like a fucking computer.
Human beings can be and do anything and everything if they put there MIND to it.
Jakes put it this way –
If you go on a computer you have default settings so whether you are in Microsoft word or whatever, program your in it has a default.
The default sets in the computer some principles and ideas to which the computer is committed.
It does not mean you cannot function outside of the default, it just means even if you deviate from the default the computer will automatically take you back to default settings.
And if you don,t want it to do that its more than just changing the font – you have to change the default.
So for example – change your mind to become what you want to be.
So lets try it this way – change your mind to become what you want to be.
All I did was change the font.
and while am typing this font will appear in this font and it will look like it has changed.
but it really has not changed because the moment i log out and come back to complete this typing it will come back –
This is how most individuals live there lives.
Because there default has not changed, there situation has not changed, so when they are around certain people (CHANGE)
When they sing certain songs (CHANGE)
When they shout and leap (CHANGE)
But when they go back home – Its straight back to default.
so they are going back to default over and over and over again.
They have cried about it, but they keep going back
They have shouted about it but they keep going back.
They have even prayed about it but they keep going back.
And they cant figure out how somebody who has cried for it and wished for it, and dreamed about it and sang for it, and screamed out aloud with tears and frustration, and anger, –
“WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING TO ME?”!!!
They have even called the lords name asking
“GOD WHY DO I KEEP GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN”?
And now you have the answer –
The problem is not with your sentence!!
The problem is with your DEFAULT!.
Until you change your default you will always go back to who you were before because you have never
CHANGED YOU MIND!
You change your friends you change your address you change your country, you change your car, you change your job, you change spouse, you change your phone number, you change your email.
You change all of theses things but you did not change your mind.
“Change your mind to become what you want to be.”
whether you do it in 5 steps or 20 steps – CHANGE YOUR MIND TO BECOME WHAT YOU WANT TO BE!
Why not wake up and say am not just going to change my hair am not just going to change my clothes my friends,
AM GOING TO CHANGE MY MIND!
What ever you want whatever you are doing go after it like your life depended on it
WHY?…Because it does – and –
BECAUSE YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND!
You are usually late for work/college/clients/ You are usually impatient/miserable on a Monday morning and everybody knows this – turn up 30 minutes early – 1 hour early smile be happy after all you did wake up this morning RIGHT?
WHY? Should you do this –
BECAUSE YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND!
When you change your mind there isn’t anything you cant do, there is not anything or anyone who can put you down, there is no fear, there is no hesitation – and when people say and they will say –
“Oh!.. What happen to you”
You can tell them – “I CHANGE MY MIND”.
