The Battlefield is really in our minds ⚔️
There is so much information and many messages that are poured into our minds every second. Our mind is where we must fight to choose between right and wrong every day.
As we talked about in our Disruptive Cycles course - When you make up your mind to do something, you become unstoppable. That is why today we are going to learn about the war that goes on in our mind and how to win it.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with
thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
3 Things You Must Do…
Keep your receipts
Live in reality over emotions
Talk it out with God
These are things that successful people do and I am not talking about money I am talking about the people who are happy and living in God’s peace!
Those are people who choose to get up daily and fight this war in our minds!
1. Keep Your Receipts (Video)
"For every action, you need counter action" -Coach NaQuandra
2. Reality Over Emotions
Emotions define -they are what can trigger us to get mad in an instant, cry at the drop of a hat, fester unforgiveness in one’s hearts, and drive us to succeed at all costs in life.
Emotions unchecked result in irrational responses and choices.
Emotions unchecked lead to being overwhelmed, anxiety, and depression.
Emotions unchecked are open doors.
Emotions come and go, so for something that comes so quickly and leaves ever faster how helpful do we think it would be to make choices based on those?
Emotions are signals, not factors. Most, importantly, I don't believe that we have “bad” type emotions BUT we can respond to some of the negative emotions in a bad way.
It's not that it's BAD that you get angry in a moment, but what you do after you feel your anger is what is considered the good or bad choice.
3. Talk It Out With God
Any and at all times pray to God. Have a conversation with him about it!
It's easy for us to go to our friends to talk about what's going on without a thought. Let's flip that and make God out “go to”.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22
