To Be is to Become

To make change effective, you have to BE what you want to BECOME.

There is a concept that I'll bet you have heard about most of your life. It goes something like this-"You can do anything, if you put your mind to it."

Some of us have learned that there is more to this than just a quaint old saying or proverb. In fact it is the basis for all successful people I have ever met. I know it is the basis of all the success I have ever known. Before you can receive success you must see and BE that success. I like the word believe for one reason--it holds the secret to all your success. BE-LIeVE or BE - LIVE.

When you believe something is true, that fact becomes a part of you. You become what you believe.

Believing first paves the way for success in all areas of your life from your spirituality to family relationships, work, and relationships with others. Accumulations of experiences, money, power or authority do not bring happiness or success in any area of your life.

Do you have to belong to a group or do certain outward acts to gain vitality?

No.

In fact, in many cases people have learned that activities and belonging to groups often make them more miserable. They feel like they are obligated and don't understand why when they were told the activities were the pathway to personal growth.

Do you have to have money to obtain freedom or independence?

No.

There have been stories of people who have giving away most all their possessions (do not possessions usually wind up POSSESSING us?) and obtained more freedom and independence. I have known many successful people and each of them have experienced significant losses and setbacks that would make you think they would give up because they had "lost everything."

Do you have to have money to spend more time with your loved ones?

No.

In fact, some of the best times we have spent with friends have been visiting with friends and sharing meals with those we are close to. To many of us it's better than any vacation! Can you accept that you are already a successful person in any endeavor you might consider? All we need to make anything we are to do in our physical world is within each of us. Scripture tells us we are what we think.

(Mat 15:18) "But what people say with their mouths comes from the way they think; these are the things that make people unclean."

If we are to use this power of THINKING for good we must focus on all the things that are positive around us. Our MINDS are the engine that runs on the power of what we feed it by THINKING. The results are the actions of our lives.

Believing is a mental THINKING process. When we focus on what we are going to be, Everything around us changes and we do become what we believe.

Now make it work for you. Begin by THINKING about what you want to be or what you want to happen. Begin by BE-LIeVE-ing that vision.

Let's Get Started!
