What to say when you talk to your mind, and what to say when your mind talks to you.
Think on These Things
God gave me a mind, and He expects me to fill it with good things.
A positive mind is not an accident. It's something you do on purpose.
My emotional mind is an eternal skeptic and must be shown the truth many times before it will believe.
Dreams are God's way of pointing out that I have the ability to achieve excellence in my life.
Truth is the only thing that leads to freedom. Everything else ties you up in knots and puts you into bondage.
Prayer is my ultimate reality check. I can fool some of the people some of the time, I can fool myself some of the time, but I cannot fool God.
There is a time to listen to my senses, and a time to come to my senses.
God already loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and it doesn't get any better than that.
God is love and works by love, and by nothing else than love. The power and presence of God in the world is love.
Practical faith comes in two types. The first makes it possible for me to achieve excellence, and the second makes me into a new person.
Faith isn't something I must have before I move in the direction of my dreams. Instead, it's something that develops after I start moving.
God's love not only wipes the slate clean, it also throws the slate away.
Faith isn't about size. It's about stepping out in the direction of my dreams regardless of the consequences.
The power and presence of God in the world is love. Whenever I see love, I see God's hand at work.
There is no limit to how good my life can become when I send God's love to everyone.
I will not let the world clip my wings or force me into its mold. I will fly like an eagle.
Jesus said I must be born again. Once is not enough.
God speaks all the time, but the only way to hear his voice of love is to become silent and listen.
Jesus said that the pure in heart have a special blessing; they are able to see God.
Until I understand God's love, I will never know what God is like. I must see myself through God's eyes and learn the facts of love.
God's love is still the most powerful force in the universe, and it will blow the maze of sin to smithereens.
Excellence is the path to my dreams unless I stop at a roadblock called perfection.
My chance of being perfect is zero, and if I am smart, I won't criticize other people who are not perfect.
Each day I jump into God's ocean of love and have a life transforming experience.
In the Land of Fear, the Life Long Disoriented are terrorized by Fearosaurus Rex.
What I put into my mind becomes my roadmap for life. Every word I speak takes me to a specific destination.
Mark Twain remarked that life doesn't consist so much of facts and events. Instead, it consists mainly of the storm of thoughts blowing endlessly through my mind.
When adversity pays an unwelcome visit, I modify my plans, stick to my purpose, and never surrender my dreams.
There is only one time I should quit. When what I am doing isn't working, it's time to try a new strategy.
When should I try to be like everyone else?
I can afford to cut a great deal of slack to the people in my life. They need all the help they can get, and so do I.
I will not allow what I have or don't have to ruin my life. I will live as if I am a thankful person.
Resentment makes me sick. It takes a bad situation and makes it worse. Forgiveness is the cure for resentment.
To become a loving person, I must do the things that loving people do. I have to do it before I feel it.
To become a positive person, I must do the things that positive people do.
The Life Long Disoriented are experts in time travel, and they do it all the time. They get into their time machines and live either in the past or the future.
Guilt is a hazardous substance, and I must handle it with care. Guilt has the wrong focus.
Negative and judgmental thoughts are the cockroaches of the mind.
When I fill my mind with the power of God's love, miraculous things happen.
I am careful about what I allow inside my mind.
Negative thoughts are my mind's way of saying stop and take a break.
Negative thoughts are parasites that live off the energy that I give them.
Negative thoughts don't just happen; they are there for a reason.
My need to be right is the formula for perpetual conflict.
Conflict is the road to exhaustion and negative thoughts.
Negative thinking is the most powerful poison in the world.
Negative thoughts create a black hole that annihilates my future in a unique way.
My sense of wonder is fragile, and I must handle it with care.
I must never fall in love with money. Loving money is a pathetic misdirection of my affections.
Wherever I am, I can push my mind in a positive direction and listen to the sound of my dreams.
