Have you ever wondered why you just can’t stop thinking? Every minute that passes by, your mind is thinking about one thing or the other.
Some of your thought could be meaningful and useful but most of them are aimless daydreams.
We, humans, are thinking machines. We can’t stop thinking even if we tried. Although some people have been successful in quietening their minds for a few minutes or hours, this is not the case for the majority of people.
Although we think aimlessly a lot, we still recognise to some degree, the importance of our thoughts. Thinking gives us relief, comfort, solution, peace of mind, happiness, entertainment and many other benefits; which why we indulge in it.
Thought is that thing that proves we are spiritual beings having a human experience. When we think, we are connecting to the Source, The Great Mind, which is the source of all creativity, vision, solution and more.
Your ability to think is your greatest power. It’s the power which connects you to the Great Mind – God. When you fully understand the power of your thought, you have begun on your path to enlightenment.
Thought and purpose is the path to a successful life. When you channel your thinking towards your purpose in life, you will realise that suddenly your life has meaning, and you will feel fulfilled about life. Before I continue, I want to talk about thought a little bit more.
Earlier in this article, I stated that humans are thinking machine. We simply can’t stop thinking. Thinking is the primary purpose of every human. Everything else a man does comes after his thoughts.
Now, consider the quote of James Allen above and your thoughts throughout today. What type of thoughts have you entertained? Are they useful thoughts? Are they positive thoughts? Are they thoughts that if people knew of them, you will be proud of?
Every voluntary action you’ve taken so far in your existence was preceded by your thought. If you entertain good thoughts, your actions will be good and if you entertain bad thoughts, the reverse is the case.
Your ability to think is your greatest gift. I encourage you to use this gift and power intelligently.
Pay attention to all your thoughts. If a thought comes up and you deem it as a negative or non-beneficial thought, you should reject it immediately by simply saying: I reject this thought and all power that come with it. Remember: Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7.
Thinking positive thoughts without any goal in mind is a waste of energy. Your ability to think is power; power that you must use wisely. This is why you should endeavour to direct all your thoughts towards achieving something useful.
What do you want to achieve? What’s your goal? What purpose do you want to achieve?
What’s purpose? Purpose is your reason for existing in this reality. Do you know why you are here on this earth? There is a reason for your existence and it’s up to you to find it.
There is something you have always felt at home doing. You are drawn towards it for reasons you can’t quite explain. In fact, you are willing to do it for the rest of your life without ever getting paid for it. Whatever this thing is, this is your life purpose.
Until a man finds his life purpose, he will continually be wondering from one occupation to another without finding fulfilment, joy or happiness.
I encourage you to do all you can to find your life purpose and embark on making it a reality. You already have the number one tool required to make it a reality, this tool is called thought or the ability to think.
Thought And Purpose
Am sure you have visited several YouTube channels. When you watch the contents of different channels, you will notice that some content creators are just at home doing what they are doing while others are trying their best to look natural.
When you are on your purpose, you will always feel at home. You will be a natural because you’re doing what you were born to do.
Those who we admire and look up to are people who either deliberately or accidentally linked their thoughts and purpose together.
Remember the quote of James Allen: Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment.
But when you direct all your thoughts towards your purpose in life, doors will begin to open for you. You will start to witness things you’ve never imagined possible before.
When your thoughts are linked to your purpose, there is peace, fulfilment, joy and happiness within you. And you will also discover things about reality which you haven’t noticed in the past. You will become more confident and inventive.
If life seems boring to you, it most likely because you are not on your purpose. I have met many people in my life but am still yet to meet anyone who’s on their purpose that finds life boring.
When you direct your thoughts on your life purpose, you will begin to find life exciting and fulfilling. Those who can work 12 hours a day, day after day, year after year, are only able to do that because they are on their life purpose and purpose gives you all the energy and drive that you will need to succeed.
Success is assured as far as you are working on your life purpose. Success is only a maybe when you are working on a project or something that just interests you.
Link your thoughts and purpose together to experience success, fulfilment, joy, happiness, and most importantly; leave a footprint that you will be remembered for, even years after you’ve gone.
