In Training

8 02 2008

Have you ever heard that old saying, “If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right?” Well, that IS right.

The reason so much attention is focused on our mentality is that a  majority of our battle to (BE)TTER is in our mind. Think about it. Everything that has ever happened in the history of mankind has started with a thought. There is nothing, good or bad, we have done or ever will do without thinking about it first.

There may be some stuff we do that appears to be without thinking but that’s because we have repeated those actions so many times.  The evidence of seemingly thoughtless actions indicates an opportunity for Better Life lies in neuro-associative conditioning. Say what? It’s a psychological term that simply means to train the brain.

How can we make that happen? Notice Psalm 1:1-3 tells us the best training regiment to follow:

“Blessed is the man…his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. Whatever he does prospers.”

Meditate means to mutter and repeat. So like learning to ride a bike or play an instrument comes by repetition, reading, re-reading and saying God’s words out loud retrains our brains to think better so we act better. Practice makes perfect.

So what’s on your mind?*
