BENEFITS OF CULTIVATING THE IDEAL MINDSET (PART 3)
“Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
- Paul the Apostle.
WORTHY GOALS AND IDEALS:
A purposeless life is a meaningless existence. Until purpose is discovered, understood and pursued, time is misused and life becomes abused.
Until you understand “why you are,” you will undervalue and abuse the essence of “who you are”. Until purpose is daily accomplished the joy of living is daily missing. Life amounts to nothing if it is spent on worthless and selfish living. Life counts when it is invested in worthwhile living. To invest your life in worthwhile living is to accomplish worthy goals and ideals; until the ideal thought qualities becomes your frame of thinking it will be impossible for you to think and create worthy goals and ideals that transform lives.
Without a clear sense of direction life ends up in frustration. Your contribution to life creates your legacy. The extent to which you function in the ideal mindset determines the quality of your contribution to life. The ideal mindset makes you become sensitive and alert for inner direction and it is the right state of mind to receive ideas from the Divine Mind that birth solutions thereby making a difference in the domain of life.
The feeling of knowing that you are becoming everything you were created to be produces personal fulfillment. Knowing that you are maximizing your potentials and fulfilling your purpose on earth makes for personal fulfillment. Knowing that you are contributing to life in a meaningful way that keeps your character intact nourishes personal fulfillment.
Personal fulfillment is not just about fulfilling your purpose but it is about fulfilling your purpose in alignment with moral principles. Compromising moral pronciples in a bid to fulfilling purpose only leaves you empty on the inside. Yes, the world may applaud you and call you successful but inwardly when you look at the man in the mirror you see yourself as you really are a “scam.”
Life is not just about achieving but what you are becoming in the process of achieving or accomplishing your goals or dreams. The ideal mindset enables you to fulfill your life’s purpose for the right reasons and by the right means which ends in a fulfilling life.
