In our minds we tend to make life more complicated than what it is. The trickery that the mind plays can keep you from obtaining life pleasures. The constant poisoning the mind puts into your spirit is enough to keep you trapped in a miserable life for many years. So how do you beat the mind at its own game? First you must understand that you are in total control of your mind. The mind is an extension to what you feel deeply in your heart. If you feel that you are not adequate in your heart your mind will make sure that it becomes reality. Your heart must be filled with good thoughts and intentions. Take these feelings of good thoughts and declare that they will be used to create something positive.
Once you have filled your mind with good thoughts you cannot stop there. You must take those thoughts and combine them with diligent hands. When you are diligent you will overcome defeat.
