Soul Search Sunday: It's All In Your MInd

The mind is a marvelous place, full of wonders that only you can discover. The mind can also be dangerous to those who cant utilize it to it's full potential. Is it true that we only use a small percentage of our brain in our lifetime, when the average person always assumes they are in control of their own mind. Now ask if you aren't in control, then who is?

To maintain complete control and stimulation of the mind, one must mediate often to stay spiritually sound. Diet and exercise is also important. A fit body makes a fit mind. Certain circumstances in life seem to play tricks on your mind. When an obstacle surfaces, you THINK you can't overcome it. When an opportunity surfaces, you BELIEVE you can't do it.
Famous author Napoleon Hill once said, in his book Think and Grow Rich,"I want to describe my discovery in the simplest terms possible because it will reveal to you why it is true that whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve regardless of how many times have failed in the past or how lofty your aims and hopes may be."

Sometimes negative influences can make us, depressed or angry, even jealous of others but you do not have to live in that mental state forever. You can elevate, within your own earthly temple. We may not be able to control man, we can not control the weather but we can control our minds. We can use our minds to complete our long lived dreams of success. We can use our minds to help and heal others. We can use our minds to build friendships and empires. We can USE our MINDS to change the world all in the power of thought and the action it takes to succeed

Don't wait on the influences of others to spark a change in you. Spark one within yourself. It starts with YOU.

"Sometimes I get really stressed and I just want to give up, but I try my best to never let the obstacles affect me. It's really hard not to be upset about a lot of things. What are some ways to handle my stress?"

                                                                     -Dear Katrina,

Stress affects us in a lot of ways in our everyday lives. Whether it be big or small, it all seems like a big deal and impacts us greatly. Sometimes when we are stressed out we don't appreciate the things that we have in our lives.  A lot of time is spent stressing over what we don't have and not enough time spent appreciating what God has already given them. When you are stressed and can't actually solve your problem sometimes you must simply let it go. It's only in the state of pure tranquility when you can access your full potential and your ability to reason. When you are stressed, try doing something that relaxes you to the point where you can think clearly and not let your problems overwhelm you. You can also try talking with a friend or mentor, or a person who has been through similar life experiences. Once you learn to control your stress level; utilize it. Know that stress can be a positive force and just the push you need to solve any problem that you may face. Once you come to this realization, you will gain a self confidence that no obstacle is too great for you to overcome.

    Someone please call "911". Chivalry is dead. Time of death? The present. Okay so I went a little overboard with the "911" call but I think we could potentially file a missing person's report for Chivalry. It seems to be missing from the list of qualities of so many men. Chivalry covers a lot more than opening doors for women and paying for dinners. Chivalry is about respect, courtesy, and being a gentleman. That's quite a chunk out of the composition of a man to do without. In my opinion, it's a necessary quality of a good man. We've evolved so much that women can open doors for themselves. However, we've always had that ability; opening doors. Chivalry for women is about being able to open your own doors but allowing a gentleman do it for you. A gentleman wants to show his respect and show some good old fashion manners. "Manners" Yeah, how often do you see those? So... where has chivalry gone? It's tucked away deep inside latent parts of the brains of men who are courting women that don't require them to use such gentlemen like characteristics. Chivalry is also becoming extinct due to women who forget to notice the deeds of gentlemen. How often are we forgetting to allow men to be chivalrous then reminded by the kind feeling you get when a gentlemen actually opens a door for you?  One day last week, I was walking in the rain because I'd forgotten my umbrella at home. The sweetest guy offered his umbrella to me. That is testament that chivalry is not dead, it may be within the capabilities of an endangered species called a gentleman, but it's indeed not dead.
