For the past month I have been talking to you about the power of the mind. I have iterated on multitudinous occasions that in order to change your current state you must first change your current state of mind.

Educational psychology states that a learned person is one with a vision of unified knowledge. He does not like being restricted to seeing things from one dimension. He prefers seeing things from multiple dimensions and combines them into an integrated perspective. His thoughts, visions and projections are unified and in harmony with his direction.

In the arena of Business Administration many companies are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that the old model no longer works. These companies are now recruiting executives that are emerging from the new school of innovative thinking. Yes, they are looking for thinkers. Social evolution requires the ability to shift the model. It takes a person that is able to consistently exercise thought in several realms or dimensions to insure that the current model is effective. In this arena there are three major thought processes:

  1. The first is “reflective thinking”; this is a place where you allow your mind to flow freely and think freely without being confined to organized system. If you are putting in energy and effort into this realm of thought then it is not truly reflective. This type of thinking opens up the possibility for creative thought. It creates the capability to function in the second realm of thinking.
  2. The second realm of thought is “lateral thinking”. Lateral thinking, also known as thinking outside of the box, is a thought process in which preconceived boundaries are removed and alternative ideas are entertained. Lateral thinking is the reason that a young entrepreneur who has been told that his passion will not translate into a viable business in the present economy still flourishes. He has learned how to think outside of the built-in boundaries of his niche.
  3. The third realm of thought is “critical thinking”. This is the thought process by which you analyze, anatomize, re-examine, and recalculate your processes. This is the analytical realm that when properly navigated reduces errors and maximizes opportunity.

 

Example: Reflective thinking will provide the idea of how to build your loved one a beautiful gift from wood. Lateral thinking will give you the idea that cutting the traditional way as explained in the instructions will give you a generic product, whereas as simple change in tools and angles will offer something that will be truly unique. Critical thinking will cause you to examine the cutting angles and tools used with precise thought and consideration given to each detail. What this does is reduce the chance of error and the loss of a valuable piece of wood.

All of this has been stated in order to stress the power of thought. Listen to what the creator of Mind Reality; who happens to be a Christian by the way, says.

The secret of wealth is consciousness of wealth. In order to
experience abundance, you have to be abundant. Abundance is your
true nature, and when you think, act and live according to it, you
will manifest abundance. The rich in mentality get richer while the
poor in mentality get poorer. The accumulation of material wealth
begins with wealth consciousness. Pursuing spiritual development
before working on wealth creation is the key to attaining both
inner and outer riches. The outer is reflection of inner.

The secret of health is consciousness of health. Disease is a lack
of ease psychologically and physically. Conflicting thoughts and
feelings in your consciousness is what causes this state of
distress. When you notice yourself becoming sick, watch for
conflicting thoughts that have arisen within your consciousness and
resolve them. Either push them all one way or the other, or find a
way to hold them in a harmonious way. External remedies only cure
symptoms but dealing with consciousness cures at root. (see Bishop Rick Wallace for a more detailed explanation on sickness and healing)

The secret of secrets is the consciousness of secrets. All the
truths about life are not secrets, but they are hidden from us due
to our ignorance. By thinking about the discovery of truths as a
search for the secrets, we motivate our subconscious mind to go on
a treasure hunt. The greatest treasure in this world is wisdom, and
life is to be played as a treasure hunting game. Treasures are
meant to be appreciated and so when you think of truths as secrets,
your appreciative mindset will draw them all to you.

Written by Enoch Tan – Creator of Mind Reality

 

Can you at least begin to grasp what is written here? Everything he says here has strong biblical foundation.

“As a man thinks in his heart so is he…” (Prov. 23:7)

When I first decided that I wanted to be an entrepreneur years ago, I was blessed to have an awesome mentor who spent the majority of his time, not giving me different business models that were certain to work, but teaching me that poverty is a mentality and so is wealth. This is what Enoch was speaking of when he said, “Abundance is your true nature, and when you think, act and live according to it, you will manifest abundance. The rich in mentality get richer while the poor in mentality get poorer. The accumulation of material wealth begins with wealth consciousness.” When you find yourself in any kind of pit or grounded in any area of your life it can be traced back to your thinking. We all fall into places where we fall victim to what Christian Author, Joyce Meyers calls “stinkin thinkin”. Our way of thinking sends us down a path of destruction and delay. The Christian should have a thought process that is inundated with Christian doctrine. The Christian should not have a mindset of lack because the God we serve is a God of abundance.

Proper and accurate knowledge that is put into action is the execution of wisdom. There must first be the apprehension of knowledge:

“My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge.” (Hos. 4:6)

The knowledge that is apprehended must be put into action and its progression facilitated by faith. This means that you believe that what God has promised you as an inheritance is already yours as long as you align with his will.

Remember what Enoch said, “The rich in mentality get richer while the poor in mentality get poorer.” What this means is what separates the wealthy from the poor is not socioeconomic boundaries; it’s not geographical impediments, it’s not racial discrimination; those are simply built in excuses for failure. What separates the wealthy from the poor is the mentality of each. Understand this: In order to truly become wealthy, you must become wealthy in your mentality. Money is simply one of the manifestations of your wealth and is the conduit through which external expression of that wealth is most easily witnessed. When you gain this understanding you will never be imprisoned by money again. When you grasp this truth you will never experience poverty again, even if your bank account is empty. You may be asking how that can be so. This means that you have not grasped it just yet. Money is simply a medium produced through the power of the mind impressed upon life. As long as you understand wealth and you think in abundance you will always recover.

When I say think in abundance, I am not speaking of daydreaming. There is a place and time for that; it falls under the reflective thought process I spoke of earlier. In this instance, thinking in abundance means careful and intent consideration of what is before you and the power you have been given by God to obtain it.

“But you shall remember the LORD your God, for (S)it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deut. 8:18 NASB)

As we press forward in this journey of elevation this year, I will continue to present new truths that will allow you to adjust your thinking. There are opportunities out there right now that will produce cash in abundance, but I tell you that until your thinking has change you will not be successful or like most lottery winners, you will have fleeting riches. It is not the opportunity, but the mindset. The mindset will automatically uncover opportunities. I will eventually present opportunities, but I want to establish the need for proper thinking or it will be a waste and a source of frustration.

I pray that this short treatise has in some way blessed you. If it has I encourage you to pass the link on to others so that together we can raise the status of believers everywhere.

” Throughout the past centuries, mankind has been looking to the outside for improving the quality of our lives. Technology has developed and advanced to a level where we can do many things we couldn’t possibly do before. It’s amazing how far the genius that God has put in us has turn out to be. Now at the turn of the millennia, mankind is beginning to turn from looking outside to looking inside to exploring and developing the vastly untapped potential that lies within each and every one of us all along.” ~ Enoch Tan”
