The mind is a very powerful tool. Whatever you think, that will begin to manifest. We have to get the negativity out of our mind. If you think you are going to fail, you cannot be disappointed when the result is you failing. Throughout my life I have set goals I wanted to achieve. I did not waver from those goals. In most cases I saw myself already in the position I wanted to be in before I even got there. When you flood you mind with those positive prophetic thoughts, what you are hoping for has to come to past. If you want a promotion on your job, you have to see yourself doing that job much before you receive it. If you are in school, at the beginning of the semester, imagine yourself making straight A's and really believe it throughout the course of the school year. If you want to lose weight and get in shape, it starts in your mind. You have to will yourself go to the gym, will yourself to eat the right kinds of foods. No matter what your current situation looks like, change begins in your mind. If you walk around thinking negatively, feeling sorry for yourself, waiting on someone to save you, you are going about life the wrong way. You have to create your own opportunities and it starts with the mind. You have to think great things into existence. Think it and it will be.
