For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…
We are what we think about most of the time.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin writes, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” We are full of potential and have been, as Zig Ziglar famously has said, “endowed with the seeds of greatness.” To live and operate at any level less than this is to forfeit our birthright.
So what are you thinking? What are you focusing on? If you find yourself consistently focusing on perceived limitations, perceived lack of knowledge or lack of experience, you diminish the greatness within you. If you focus on perceived lack, lack is what you will continue to create.
If, on the other hand, we recognize the greatness within us and begin to focus on the enormous potential we each have, our lives will begin to take on the vision we see within our minds.
Solomon, the wisest of men throughout history, writes, “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” What we think about most of the time is what we will become, what will begin to transform into reality. If we have thoughts of lack, of weakness, of insufficiency, we plant the seeds that will blossom into what we’ve been thinking. Seeds of lack grow into greater lack. Seeds of unconfidence sprout into fear. Seeds of weakness grow into intimidation and more weakness.
Change what you’re focusing on and, instead, focus on the greatness within you. Faith is believing in what you can’t see, believing in what your five senses don’t experience in the moment. It’s belief that you already have what you desire, you have what you are focusing on. You may not be able to see it yet; you may not be able to experience yet, but that doesn’t diminish the simple fact that you already have it deep down within you.
Let the seeds of greatness begin to take root and grow within you. You are destined to achieve great things. You have been implanted with the ability to transform the world around you. You just need to let go of your doubt, have faith and let the seeds of greatness germinate.
