I like this quote that I found on Pinterest. I was having a conversation with a person not too long ago. I told them that I’m noticing that there are alot of strong, muscular built individuals walking around in the world. I just wish that peoples minds were as built as some people’s bodies are. I say this and I stick by this. There’s no gym equipment or exercise in the world that can strengtheneth your mind. You either want it or you don’t. A strong mind comes from having a made up mind. A strong mind allows you to get stuff done. To be focused on what’s important. Not allowing any distractions to derail you from your plan, purpose and goals.
Our mind is a muscle. One of the more important muscles. It gets overlooked and neglected because people don’t see the brain. People can’t touch the brain and tell you how attractive it looks. People can’t tell you how good it smells. People can’t tell you how fit it is. But don’t forget that it’s on the inside of you. Whatever you allow your brain to ingest it will display alot about who you are as a person. See we forget that the insides is what makes the outsides look good or bad. But that’s okay because we live in a society that focus more on the outer appearance then the inner. Train the brain right. Treat it good. Exercise that muscle the way that it should be exercised; which is daily.
I woke up today ready, energized, expecting greatness, but I had you on my mind. See the mind is a muscle just to be bias I believe that the mind is one of the more important muscles in the human body. This muscle is being constantly used everyday. Basically the methods used to exercise this muscle will determine the performance that it displays in life. What I am trying to say is that a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
There is no weight machine or exercise that can strengthen this muscle. What I have come to learn is that when a person makes up his/her mind to succeed or fail. There is nothing that anyone can do to alter that.
Well why is that?
The mind is the head of the body. Everything that we see, touch, taste, smell and hear is based from the minds ability to interpret these actions. For example you see a fuzzy pillow. It is all white with a hint of grey. You reach to touch the pillow only to feel the texture of it. Your sensory and neurons start firing off sending a pulse communicating to the brain what the human flesh just experienced. The Brain then takes this information and can either tell your body what you just experienced was soft pleasure or this softness caused pain to the body. From this you will develop a assimilation and accommodation of anything that you see fuzzy is soft and pleasurable or anything that you see fuzzy causes pain.
Now let’s play around with this real quick. Let’s just say that the fuzzy pillow caused pain and discomfort. From this point on anything that you see of fuzzy texture will be deemed as bad. This is based upon your last interaction. You feel you mind with negative assumptions going forward. Now what if you see a dog that is appealing to the eyes. The dog that you witness is one of those sheep type dogs with alot of fur.
Is that dog dangerous? Will it cause pain and discomfort because it has fuzzy fur?
I introduced two terms that I remember studying earning my psychology degree from college.
is the cognitive process of fitting new information into existing cognitive schemas, perceptions, and understanding.
is part of the learning process that allows us to change our existing ideas in order to take in new information.
This is key to understanding what I am trying to communicate. Children know these two psychology terms very well. For example, parents have you every experienced this with your children.
Source: Piaget’s Example
When a child learns the word for dog, they start to call all four-legged animals dogs. This is assimilation. People around them will say, no, that’s not a dog, it’s a cat. The schema for dog then gets modified to restrict it to only certain four-legged animals. That is accommodation.
As adults we do the same as children. So maybe assimilation and accommodation does not just apply to the little people. It’s called
A schema describes both the mental and physical actions involved in understanding and knowing. Schemas are categories of knowledge that help us to interpret and understand the world.
As people we learn (experience) troubles, heartaches and pains. Only to start calling (labeling) everything else in life that appears as a potential threat negative. We constantly feed the mind negative thoughts. We know this too well. Why not tell yourself positivity? Negativity has become so much apart of our learning process and way of living that other people have to talk to us, help modify the way we allowed negativity to sculp our view of the world.
What has transpired whether a quarter, half or a full century of our life should not be something that we are continuously feeding the mind to believe that the rest of our life will turn out this way. The reason why the world around you is not changing is large in part of what dwells inside of you.
What every the mind believes the body will achieve. This is true because the body takes it’s orders and acts on the commands that the brain gives. So if you tell yourself that you have a wonderful life and there is nothing to be sad, mad or even ungrateful about. The body will begin to operate accordingly to the words that you speak. I believe the word of the heavenly father says it best,
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof
Your mind is powerful. It is scary how much you can achieve just by having a made up mind. Whether good or bad. It is amazing how the words you speak carry so much weight that the brain takes it, process it and communicate to the body that this is what to live accordingly to.
Sorry but I don’t have a list of 1-10 on how to achieve this. However I can tell you how to approach change. Simply make your mind up. No gimmicks. I’m not going to sell you that if you spin around five times, Pat your head and stomach at the same time and say the words abracadabra. You will be fixed. Naw, I’m not interested in playing with people’s emotions. You’re searching, wondering and hoping for something. You just have to make your mind up do you want positivity or do you want to negativity to keep lingering in your life. Bottom line. It’s all based on you making up your mind and being tierd, done of the same recurring garbage that should not be still there.
So let me ask you a question
Change starts today, but first modify the way you think.
You know my WordPress family I can remember as a young boy sitting at the dining table listening to both my father and mother talk. They would say that “people are their own worse enemy.”
I never really understood what they meant by this. I would hear them say profound deep revelatory things that would silence a room. I seldomly would ask for them to clarify. It wasn’t until I moved out and was in college that I realized that what they said was true. Many times we blame others for our downfalls, short comings and missed opportunities. Many times we play the victim. We tell ourselves that if things around us would fall into it’s proper place we would have a easier way of living. We sit back and point the finger believing that this is the works of others. Only to realize that this was not by the hands of others. It was never others that was standing in our path.
It hurts doesn’t it?
Life has a funny way of showing you what you see verses what you really are.
Don’t stand in your way. You deserve more. You are better than that. You see yourself as royalty but you’re living the life of a peasant. Remember dream, believe and achieve. You can’t just see yourself as royalty, you have to mentally be royalty first.
Something to think about??
Whatever trials, tribulations, test, situations and or problems that you are facing day after day. Wake up with the mentality that you will rise. I will always rise. I am a overcomer. What I am facing now shall not last for a lifetime. I will never quit nor allow myself to accept defeat. I mean repeat those words to yourself until you mean it, believe it, receive it and achieve it. I don’t care if you have to walk inside the bathroom and stand in the mirror and recite it to yourself like it’s your lines in a play. Do it. Change will happen. Change will come when you first repeat it + believe it = achieve it.
I know that the path that you are walking on is dark and feels lonely. But if you walk through that valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil, just knowing that Yahuah (God) is the light that will be guiding you down that pathway. You will have absolutely nothing to fear, I gaurantee it.
These situations, hurdles, problems and test that you are facing is just a preparation for what’s to come in your life. Don’t take the test and second guess your answers to the questions. You have been studying for a long time now. Your preparation has been more challenging than the actual exam. You have had to be mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually broken down to be built into the proper butt kicking machine that you are today.
The stuff that’s you are staring in the face is not there to hurt you. It can’t touch you if Yahuah (God) don’t want it to. It is only their to challenge you, strength you because you are growing stronger and stronger everyday. You are climbing the levels and the ranks and on every level there is a devil waiting to war with you. But remember the battle is already won. All you have to do is walk through the valley. Whatever is a enemy, trouble and problem of yours is a enemy, trouble and problem of the heavenly fathers . They are already defeated and a foot stool. When you walk through the valley you are just seeing what could be a potential threat is not one at all. As long as you keep the faith, surrender your control to the heavenly father and keep Yahuah (God) first there is nothing that death can throw towards your way that you won’t be able to say, THAT’S THE BEST YOU GOT.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself, all that you are is within you. You just have to access it.”
What it do.
So, I am sitting at home in amazment of how I have a website. Where I am writing hopefully to inspire, motivate and making people think. I’m building toward one day standing on a stage or even writing books that will challenge people to strengthen their mind. For people to survive in this world we have to be mentally strong because that is what being attacked the most. From sun up to sun down, our mind is heavily targeted. For example, how do you kill a snake?
Before starting this website. I thought that I had to go on this journey to find myself. I thought that I would have to isolate myself from society to understand everything that I am and hope to be. I thought that i had to go on this spiritual journey in order for me to unlock my true self. I thought that I would oneday, maybe someday have this deep revelation or epiphany.
Hahaa, now looking back, I was doing the most. I was being extra, because I did not want to change. I did not want to evolve as a person. I wanted comfort. I used to play basketball alot and as a little kid I had dreams of going to the NBA. You see when I went to college that dream began to fade away. I didn’t believe that I was given a fair chance to showcase what I had. I tried holding on, but all good things come to an end. For about two years, I was lost. I didn’t know what I would amount to at all. I felt hurt and robbed. I would have turned to people for advice and help, but people were to busy blowing up my phone asking me for direction. I couldn’t go to them. People look at me like if I don’t have struggles. They must think that I’m strong 24/7. I mean hurt to. I need someone to talk to as well. Apparently I was strong enough to help other people even though I was facing my own demons. Oneday I was sitting in my dorm chilling. Minding my own business as usual. I could see a picture in my head of my dad when I was 12. I heard a voice say “I bet you think that I’m teaching you how to play basketball? I’m teaching you life.” Then I had a oh crap moment. That thing that I have been chasing since my youth was never for me. In that moment I began to realize that I was in school earning a psychology degree. I have friends and family who always talk to me seeking advice, understanding, direction and knowledge on particular situations.
I soon realized that the heavenly father has been allowing certain situations to take place in my life. To show me who I am. It’s amazing because everyone else seen what i possed. I was the only one who didn’t. Let me be honest for a moment 1) I never understood it. 2) That was not the plan and vision that I had for myself. I didn’t have to search far. I didn’t have to go on a journey. I needed to stop fighting and listen. I have the ability to encourage, motivate, inspire and teach. My gift is that I can take information that I have learned, heard, experienced. I can take it and communicate it to people in such a way that it impacts your life and warrant change.
I don’t know who will read this. I just hope that you find a answer to your question. You see I’m thankful for the 20 subscribers that I have. This blog is not as big as all the other blogs out there. You know that’s cool, because I have some more grinding that I need to do. I see all that this blog can be and im just getting started. I’m appreciative for where I am currently. One day I will get there. Until then Imma keep grinding. Thank you for rocking with ya boy. However, I write to touch people. I write because I have a solution to the problem. I would love if everyone will hunger for knowledge and thrist for understanding. You see I write because all of us are attacked mentally everyday. I am very interested in studying people mentally. Anaylzing why people say, think and do the things that they do. In my bias opinion, I believe the reason why so many of people tap out on life, before it really begin. It is due to their mind being under attack. Wether through forms of suicide, substance abuse or just quiting. More clearly we all lack mental stability. I personally believe that not alot of people know how important and special that they really truly are. For example, the most high has a plan and purpose for our lives. But we miss something, if the most high has a plan and purpose for your life. Then wouldn’t you be apart of that plan and purpose? He don’t do things by accident or coincidence. The theme, message, content that I keep presenting is “change your mentality and you will change your reality.” The mind is a muscle, it should be exercise as such. I would love to reach everyone, but I know that everyone has to want to be reached. If I could just reach one somebody. Man, I have done my job.
Hunger for knowledge, thirst for understanding

Fisher of men
I caught this video on YouTube and I agree with the brotha. Don’t you want to see all that you can be. I mean don’t you want to achieve everything that you are, can and will be. Don’t you just want to reach out and grab hold to Yahuah (God) hand and allow him to show you; to take you there? Is there anything in your life worth you having the mentality to just say, no more thinking, guessing or making excuses. I am going for this, because I gotta see. I gotta know? It’s interesting because this can be used not to obtain riches, but wealth. I don’t mean money. I mean health, a better mentality. A better focus, because many of us dream of that next level in our lives (whatever that next level maybe), but we ignore the voice telling us to go for it. It’s yours, if you would just move and listen you will have it. Don’t sit there and question or come up with a thousand excuses for the reasons why, for the reasons why. All of us can, shall and will achieve greatness. Stop looking at that 1 or 2 percent and saying well “they were destined for greatness. They were born to be what they are.” That’s garbage, we were all born with a level of greatness. It’s just a matter of DO YOU WANT IT.
