You can turn your life around. Yes, you can! You can change your world from a world of defeat into a world of victory. From a world of poverty into a world of riches. From sickness to health; from breakdown to breakthroughs. You can move your world from failure to success, from survival to significance. You can change your world!
You Must Be “Born Again”!
But listen, friend, you cannot change the world until your own world is changed. That is, you cannot impact your generation until your own life is changed! If you can get the ‘man’ right, you’ll get your ‘world’ right. James Allen in his all-time classic “As A Man Thinketh” said, “Man has but to right himself to find that the universe is right; and during the process of putting himself right; he will find that as he alters his thoughts towards things and other people; things and other people will alter towards him.”
Change begins with you. Without personal change there can’t be professional change. Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Except a man is born again, he cannot see the
is to say: Except a man is changed, his world – his circumstances – cannot
change. Except a man be transformed from within, he cannot see, perceive nor
experience the wonderful realities of the new life in Christ. It is first
within, then without. That is a fundamental law in the school of
success. A man can only travel as far and as fast as he travels on his inside. kingdom
Change Your Thoughts
We live in a house made of thoughts. So start to change your thoughts. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”2 Men are living magnets. We attract to ourselves per time, the sum total of our thoughts. So I can say, your thoughts determine your worth! That should tell you where the change must begin - in your heart. The thoughts of your heart determine the quality of your life.3 It was William James, the famed Harvard psychologist, that said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter the state of their lives by changing the state of their mind.” That’s true. It is first within, then without. If you change your world, the world will change for you.
Don’t waste your life trying to change the world, change yourself!
The Man Who Wanted to Change the World
That reminds me of the man who wanted to change the world. He said:
“I was a revolutionary when I was young and all my prayer to God was: “Lord, give me the energy to change the world.”
As I approached middle age and realized that my life was half gone without my changing a single soul, I changed my prayer to: “Lord, give me the grace to change all those who came into contact with me, just my family and friends, and I shall be satisfied.”
Now that I’m an old man and my days are numbered, I have begun to see how foolish I have been. My one prayer now is; “Lord, give me the grace to change myself.” If I had prayed this right from the start, I would not have wasted my life.”
You can change your world. You can stop to take what you have put up with thus far. You can change the quality of your lifestyle. You can improve your standard of living. You can have breakthroughs, live in health, have a decent house (even build your own) and a fulfilling career, indeed a decent life. It is possible. You can live in abundance! Jesus said, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”4
You may not be able to alter your past, (you can’t anyway) but you can effect a change in your future. You may not be able to do anything about where you have been but you sure can (and must) do something about where you will be. You can!
