The Mind

If you can succeed in your mind, you can succeed with your life.
It's one of the laws that affects your success.
Only you are responsible for your success as an organist.
To do that, you need to think about having a single minded focus to succeed in whatever you want to do with it.
It's a matter of being persistent, generous, and connected [See blog, The Lizard Brain, Parts I, II, III, IV, V]..
It's important for your mind to have a goal or focus, to have an instruction, and to have a hero (someone you want to be like).
Your mind is your greatest investment.
Your mind isn't you.
It was given to you by God to serve you, not master you.
It's important for you to think about how you want to achieve success and to turn your goals into mental pictures, for your mind to have a picture of your future.
You will always act like your self-portrait, the person you think you are, and what your mind can envision, your body can produce.
Whatever a man allows to occupy his mind will sooner or later determine his speech and his actions; this is the whole premise behind Paul's admonishments to establish wholesome thought patterns (Phil. 4:8, Col. 3:2-5).
The more creative you are, the greater will be your struggle against resistance [See blog, The Book], the voice of the lizard.
All of your inner creative battles to bring something new into existence from nothing (in fact, all of life's battles) are there.
It's the Law of the Mind.
