So I was wondering for long why it so happened that some people had the same experience over and over again. Like let’s say retaking a course over and over or staying with an abusive spouse, sticking to friends who bad-mouth you etcetera and etcetera. The list is endless.
It was then that I landed on TD Jakes’s preaching about the power of changing your mind. This is what I learned.
- You will never be a failure.
I know it might sound a bit of*. But I guess you understand. Let it not sound in someway, but truth is, a changed person will never be the same again. You will never do the same things you used to do. You’ll find it hilarious that at some point you were so limited, so helpless.You’ll also notice how you tackle challenges with a new wave energy that you never had before. And guess what? You’ll won’t fail at whatever you commit yourself to. It doesn’t mean that you won’t make silly decisions again, but you will always correct yourself and move to the right path.
- You’ll never be vulnerable or even desperate again.
We’ve all been there. At some point you’ve wanted someone so bad that they’ve started treating you like you don’t matter. But you stick around. Because you’re desperate for their love. Their affection. A person with a changed mind does not insist on where he doesn’t belong or feel welcome. He builds the right relationships, acknowledges his mistakes, and moves in a morally upright. You won’t settle for less if you are a person with a changed mind.
There is a lot more and more. But meanwhile you can ponder on these or watch video here.
