Cogito, Ergo Sum

Sometimes I rehearse myself doing an interview and I ponder on some of the questions I might get asked, like "What is the most important thing in the life of a human?". I'm not sure there's a single correct answer for that but I'd take a deep breath and say MINDSET.

Mindset is the most powerful tool we wield as humans. Many wise sayings have been written to attest to the fact that mindset is everything. Take, for example, the Latin phrase "cogito, ergo sum" which translates in English as "I think, therefore I am". Meaning that you have the power to influence life with your thinking. Hence, if you think like a champion, you will indeed become a champion. Same way if you think that you cannot amount to anything, so shall you be.

Thought is powerful. Our Lord Jesus Christ was emphatic on the power of thought when he said in Matthew 6:22 that "the eye is the light of the body". Your eye is the lens through which you perceive life, and that is shaped by your mindset. The Apostle James further reiterated this fact in the holy book of James 1:6–8 that "you must believe and not doubt". Doubt implies a negative mindset where you're constantly second-guessing your actions and that stems from your beliefs.

Nowadays it is very common to see and hear people talk about what is not possible and what we're limited to under the guise of realism. But the reality is that we're made in the image and likeness of the Creator, and therefore we possess the absolute power to command the universe to our will for the greater good of humanity.

A lot of us are playing this game of life wrong. We have become puppets of the establishment, being used to serve the selfish interests of our puppet masters. They tell you what to believe in, what is possible and not possible, and what to do with your lives. Your lives are at the mercy of the system because you gave up your Godly power in exchange for vanities. Now you humbly submit like a dog because of the power the system reserves to break you at will. What a sham.

When John, the baptist, was screaming in the wilderness about repentance, he meant a change of mindset. The change from a puppet mindset to the original God mindset.

Who are you? You are whatever you think you are. So why waste your thoughts on negatives and limitations while you can become God in the flesh?

All my life people have kept telling me that I can't do this, and I can't do that. I need a degree, and I need that, but I am whatever I am because I believe I am. Not because a human institution said so. What is a human to a God? So whatever you do, never forget that you are what you think you are, not what others think. So always reserve the right think for yourself, and think positively. This is how you play this game of life.
