This 14 set series will follow an acrostic form of teaching using the word, TRANSFORMATION. Here, we will see what it takes to transform our minds to receive greater results in our lives. We will see the attributes and characteristics that have to be adopted in order for the mind to be transformed. There must first be an adoption of these characteristics and then an adaptation to them.
Quickly, transformation is the complete change, usually into something with an improved appearance or usefulness. By transforming your mind, you will be constructing something that metaphorically looks better as in its attitude and outlook toward life’s outcomes and the usefulness of being able to use your mind for good without the prospect of negativity.
Let’s be honest, because honesty is the best policy. Transformation is tough! Let’s be honest with ourselves and get this truth out-of-the-way so we can know what we’re dealing with. Nothing is harder than causing our minds to regress from its hold habits while progressing to newer more beneficial habits.
I believe Thomas Edison’s quote is befitting here because it tells why transformation of the mind is so difficult. He shares, “The first requisite for success is to develop the ability to focus and apply your mental and physical energies to the problem at hand – without growing weary. Because such thinking is often difficult, there seems to be no limit to which some people will go to avoid the effort and labor that is associated with it.”
Wow! Well said Thomas, well said. Transforming the mind and undergoing total reconstruction and overhaul of your old paradigms requires focus. You have to be able to, as Mr. Edison puts, “focus and apply your mental AND physical energies to the problem at hand.” But my favorite out of this quote is, “because such thinking is often difficult, there seems to be no limit to which some people will go to avoid the effort and labor that is associated with it.”
So then, before we go on to the next lesson in transformation, let’s realize this fact. It’s hard! And I’m being completely honest. No, this is not a get successful quick program. If someone tries to sell one to you, run away because it will do you more harm than good.
Albeit, transformation can be TOUGH and difficult you can make it! How do I know this? Well, because it is a biblical principal and you can rest on principles because they won’t fail if used correctly. Thomas gave a hint to this principle in his quote. Galatians 6:9 so positively and truthfully states, “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit” (Message Bible). Even if you are not a Christian, this principle will work for you.
So there you have it. The first rule of transformation is to realize that it is tough! Being honest in this way will help you keep a positive mental attitude in transforming your mind for the better.
Meditate on this thought. Every successful and great person who has shaped this world all faced a transforming time period which, check this out, consisted of their entire lives (they subjected themselves to a constant and perpetual state of positive change). But as evidence shows, they never gave up which is why we know them through history as change agents. If you desire to be great respective to your life’s purpose you too must cultivate a tolerance for mental pain in the form of well-doing without immediately reaping a harvest.
