Have you ever purchased a car and then suddenly, it seemed like everywhere you drove there were the same cars on the road? It’s not actually that everyone else decided to buy the same car at the same time you did. The cars have always been there, but your mind has now been primed to now notice them. So it is the same with opportunity and progress. If your mind is primed with the right knowledge you will be able to recognize opportunities and take advantage of them when others can’t see them.
Creflo Dollar is not only a successful minister he is a prolific teacher with the ability to teach on multiple levels. Something I heard him say before was “nothing just happens!” He said, “Everything happens because something caused it to happen. The law of cause and effect not only applies to success but equally applies to failure.” He was teaching about having an open mind to progress and opportunities.
Having an open mind is crucial to making progress. Opportunities are everywhere, but without a mind that is curious and open to new ideas, opportunities will pass you by. Example; When taking college classes it may sometimes seem as if you are wasting your time reading all those books and studying all those courses, but taking advantage of the opportunity to go to school is a way to prime your mind to be ready to accept new ideas and to see things in a way that you may not have seen them before. The added plus is the growth opportunity that follows if you have an open mind to grow.
Remember: Your mind becomes magnetized to attract and recognize the things you meditate on consistently.
