A New Mindset

Samuel Smith


(A Chameleon Becomes What It Thinks)

A tasty meal, a lucrative job, and a perfect day with a negative mindset is equal to an unhappy life. Our greatest concern should be more of what we feed our minds with than what we feed our stomachs. Thus, we are not only what we eat, but more also what we think. Your mindset is like a glass through which you see the world, if it's dirty (filled with negative thoughts), it will only reflect dirt (negative side of life) to you, and you will miss the beauty in the world.

What the camera focuses on is what it captures, what the mind focuses on is what determine our statures in life and what writes the chapters of our lives—by beholding we become changed (2 Corinthians 3:18). A chameleon becomes what it thinks. Have you convinced yourself that you are unworthy of a better life? Are you trying to draw back from attaining your dreams because all the odds are against you? Focus your mind on the brighter side of life, be positive. If the body grows with age, then the mind grows with experiences. The human mindset can be likened to a muscle that can be worked on in the gym of experiences to improve upon. Take lessons from the past, and let the past be past.

A new mindset is a renewed mind; it does not allow negative thoughts to creep in, and it filters out all negative thoughts. It is a healthy mind which leads to a healthy body, and eventually to a healthy life. A new mindset is disciplined to see things in a new light even in the night, and when things are difficult. Moreover, a new mindset is the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5) which sets the affections on things above, and not things on the earth (Colossians 3:2). Let God transform you into a new person by renewing your mind. Then you will learn to know God's will for your life, which is good and pleasing and perfect" (Colossians 3:2; Romans 12:2). God loves you!
