Philosophically, the mind is the human consciousness that originates in the brain and is manifested especially in thought, perception, emotion, will, memory, and imagination.
The mind has two compartments:
the conscious mind and,
the subconscious mind
The conscious mind is the area of your mind that you are most familiar with. It includes images, thoughts, impressions, sounds etc. the subconscious mind contains all of your memories, beliefs, fears, defenses, and biases. All impressions in their entirety from the moment of birth are stored in this part of the mind. This collective accumulation of perceptions, programming, and conditioning directly influences who you are and what you become.
The subconscious mind rules our lives. Imagination is the language of the subconscious. The mind of a man does not differentiate between reality and imagination. Subconscious thinking must be aligned with conscious desires in order to reach your goal.
There is a function the mind plays in the journey towards success in life. To undervalue the place of the mind is to switch off the source of inspiration through which ideas are generated. The mind is the workshop for creativity. If it power is properly utilized, it has the ability to browse through the subconscious and bring dormant potentials to your knowledge and activate the conscious on what to do. God acknowledging the power of the mind affirmed at Babel that nothing shall be impossible unto man which he has imagined to do.
According to Napoleon Hill, whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve, hence no dream or vision can be conceived or generated without the platform of the mind. The mind as the power house of the body releases internal energy which has a compelling force to see to the actualization of your vision. The law of success says what you see is what you get. The quality of your life cannot be better than the quality of your thoughts. A man is therefore a product of how he thinks, for as he thinketh in his heart (mind) so is he. If you think success so you are, he can who thinks he can, he cant who thinks he cant. If you think failure, poverty, defeat so you are.
The journey from mediocrity to stardom begins with a change of mindset. You cannot travel without if you had not traveled within. The prodigal son remained in penury and hunger until he exercised the power of his mind. In biblical account it was recorded that “he came to himself”. This implies that before now he was not himself, his human reasoning and faculty of imagination had been suppressed by his circumstances, but when he looked inwards, he engaged the mind in a discussion that brought about a change in the bearing of his life. There can be no change of reproach until there is a change of approach. Spend time in dreaming and exploring the power of the mind until your visions become true.
Today’s dreams are the realities of tomorrow. You can sharpen your vision by exploring the power of the mind to renew and make your dream clearer. Whatever God has placed in your mind, it is because you can achieve it; get your mind renewed to be able to accommodate the big picture. Moses sent twelve spies to search the Promised Land ahead of the people of God. Ten of them came back with evil report; they did not have the capacity to comprehend and interprete what God said with what they saw. They exaggerated the inhabitants of the land and made caricature of God’s word in their minds, so they could not enter in because of unbelief. There is need for us to position our minds aright so that the vision of tomorrow will not be aborted at the altar of unbelief. Success is from the inside out; from within are the issues of life. YOUR MIND IS YOUR GREATEST ASSET.
