What Actually is the Danger from Your Mindstate?

Regardless of whether you call it the will of God or the fortunes of life, the bottom-line is you, in large part, control your destiny.  Why?

Destiny—a word that carries such a powerful finality to it.

Some people refer to it as fate.  Those people usually seem to think of destiny as a passive kind of thing.  It’s inevitable so why fight it, so to speak.

Consider these thoughts before you reach that conclusion, however.

  • There’s no where you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be—John Lennon
  • The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be—Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • No one saves us but ourselves.  No one can and no one may.  We ourselves must walk the path—Buddha
  • Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice.  It is not a thing to be waited for, it is thing to be achieved—William Jennings Bryan

But—there is a danger to you being able to adapt the above philosophies into how you live your life.

The danger is embodied in the mindstate you maintain on a daily basis.  Simply defined, mindstate is your mood and how that mood effects your thinking and the subsequent actions you take.

Coming back to the idea of your destiny.  The only thing you can be absolutely certain about is the mindstate you choose in the present moment.

Your mindstate can give you some hint of how things could be for you in the future…your destiny.arrow-945267_1920

If you choose an mindstate of negativity, the circumstances of your immediate future will weigh on you in a negative way.

Choosing to focus positively, the circumstances of your immediate future will feel brighter even in the face of adversity.

I find it amazing that such a large percentage of people think things should come to them easily…there shouldn’t have to be any adversity, in other words.

It is the adversity in your life that forces you to strive for the better things in life. The fact is adversity is what helps you define what needs to be better in your life.

stressed-646457_1280Without adversity, there is a huge question whether you could maintain a sense of direction and purpose in your life. It seems to me you would risk simply meandering through life in a “automaton blur.” There would be no highs and lows from which to build excitement into your life.

The fact is managing your mindstate consistently is probably one of the greatest challenges in life. You see…too many of us seem to be innately prone to a mindstate allowing us to take a course of least resistance. We feel safe on such a course because we have the false sense that it will bring little or no adversity.

For an answer to what you can do about all this consider the human race has a long history because it has collectively dealt with adversity throughout its existence!

Having not done so and taken the course of least resistance, the history of the human race would have come up well short of where it is today. None of us, as contemporaries, would be here and have the chance to challenge our mindstate each and every day.

Your mindstate, therefore, is the great danger standing between you and your destiny.

You control your destiny through the mindstate you choose as supported by a thought of J.K. Rowling:

“Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.”

Here are 21 ways you can manage your mindstate for creating a desirable destiny.
