THE MINDSET OF HEALTHY LIVING or We Can Always Get a Divorce

Yesterday I wrote an article and posted it on BetterNetworker titled We Can Always Get a Divorce. Curious? It addresses what I believe to be the reason why statistics show that 95% or more of the people who join a MLM (MultiLevel Marketing) company fail.

Perhaps you have never been involved in MLM; perhaps you never will. But this topic really addresses the failures we experience in every area of life. Some people would fail at the simplest task; others can master some of the most difficult equations in life. That's just the way it is. Or is it?

Failure, as I said in my article, is usually only a mindset. Change the mindset and the failure magically becomes success. Only it really isn't magic. It takes old-fashioned hard work. Not physical work as in digging ditches, but concentrated mental effort, constant wrestling with our thoughts, to accomplish this. It's not easy. In fact, it's very difficult to change our mindset. After all, it is 'set'. Sometimes set in cement. We've lived with it for a very long time.

A mind set on failure, or simply just not set on success, is not conducive to healthy living. Negative thoughts breed negative results. Where doubts assail, we usually fail. We need to learn to overcome doubts. Self-doubt is actually rooted in doubts of God. So the first step is to learn to trust the Lord.

God has some very definite things to say to and about us. Read His word, dig into the scriptures as for hidden treasure. When you find what He thinks of you, use these things for personal affirmation. Tell yourself over and over, God loves me; He cares about me; He says I'm more than a conqueror; His word says I have the victory in Him; He is always with me; He will never leave me; with Him I'll never want, I'll never fail. And there's much more. Keep digging for those gold nuggets and use them to build up your faith. Believe the Lord means what He says, then begin to act as if you really do believe it. Then success will be yours.
