Why Did You Choose that State of Mind
Author: Greg Tharpe
We all have been given freedom of choice, therefore, we all have a choice of which state of mind we want to experience in our life. Your mentality or mental state is the most important aspect of your life. It is the driving factor of what is causing peace, joy, happiness, good health, financial success or stress, worry, illness, debt and turbulence in your life.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [Philippians 2:5]
The states of mind that life gives us to choose from range from super extraordinary, to extraordinary, to ordinary, to terrible. The state that you unconsciously or consciously chose formed your perception of reality, which causes your beliefs, attitude, actions and your results or the life you are experiencing right now.
The state of mind that Jesus chose in the Bible was super extraordinary which made him a superman who performed super human miracles such as healing the sick, raising the dead, and walking on water etc. The Bible stated that Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing and they will do even greater things than these.”
Why would a person not choose a super extraordinary mentality or perception? There is a reason behind everything. Could it be fear or disbelief, instead of faith?
The mentality that you chose is free of charge; it did not cost a penny, unlike most things in life. Therefore, your life is what it is because you freely chose it. However, if you don’t like the results in any area of your life, you have the freedom to choose a different mentality which will change it.
If you unconsciously didn’t choose a super extraordinary state of mind, but now realize that you want to change, all you have to do is intend and visualize your life being super extraordinary, regardless of your current circumstances. No one starts out with this mentality, people make the change when they are dissatisfied and become conscious of how much better they want their life to be. In this case, being dissatisfied is a good thing.
More than often, our mentality is influenced by our environment and how we chose to see ourselves and life. For example, if we live in an ordinary environment surrounded by ordinary thinking people, it is easy to be influenced by it. We often adopt the mass consciousness of that environment and become a product of it.
Many who grew up in an ordinary or poor environment have that type of mentality as related to money, so they live their life with lack and limited income. However, a few are inspired by something in them or someone outside of their environment and they go on to be highly successful financially.
Why do some stay stuck in the ordinary, poor, and limited mentality of their environment or their family financial history, when they can break free by choosing a better perception of reality?
The reason being is they are afraid and they don’t believe that they can be financially successful, so they stay content with their life and mentality of ordinary, poverty, mediocrity or lack. This is like choosing to rob a bank that does not have much money in it, instead of robbing one that has abundance. The same amount of risk and work is involved.
They unconsciously chose this mindset or mentality and it caused them to create and manifest in its likeness. When you see it from this perspective, you are looking down on yourself and saying you are not good enough, which is indicative of what can be called “small money self-esteem.”
Does this make sense to be given a choice of which mentality you want and you chose; ordinary rather than super extraordinary? Why does one choose a poverty or ordinary mentality? Is it because he or she cannot see themselves prosperous beyond small thinking of their environment?
Often the reason is they don’t have a dream or vision, and if they do, it is limited. For example, some people are hopeless, they don’t believe in anything beyond their current circumstances. Even many of the seemingly more fortunate can only see themselves going to college getting a degree, working for someone else in a moderate and retiring in about 30-40 years.
If you are not working to live your dream, you are possibly working on a job that is contributing to helping someone else live their dream. Perhaps you have unconsciously settled for an ordinary mentality. Perhaps you were not aware that all you had to do was choose a super extraordinary mentality and your mindset in connection with the universe will work for you to create a more fulfilling life.
So don’t settle for anything less than the super, it is the core of who you truly are. It is what causes you to be great spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially. Therefore, intentionally raise your standards and change your mentality from terrible, ordinary or extraordinary to super extraordinary.
When you make the change and embody the change from the heart, the universe will assist you in making your new perception a reality. When you do this, you are in harmony with abundance and adding faith to your vision, which is causing you to grow, and your dream to manifest. It is the results of the power of a super extraordinary mindset.
