The Forte for me, is banking on my strengths and making them work for me; It is my self-believe on the great heights I can attain if only I put my mind to it; It is leaving my comfort zone to explore the magic and beauty in the world because a confined space no longer works for me – Omoakhuana A. Imoisili
I have over and over again shared with you, bits and pieces of my life in various blog posts…..how I used to be a sickly, depressed, always-moody, always-crying, just existing me. There was nothing remotely interesting about my life.
“Being miserable is a habit; being happy is a habit; and the choice is yours.” ~ Tom Hopkins
It was like I had no control over my mind and life as I sunk deeper and deeper in the throes of darkness that seemed to envelope me.
It wasn’t until I had a miraculous mindset transformation did everything in my world start to look colorful. I began to have so much energy and there were endless possibilities laid before me of how I could live my dream life.
I saw for myself the big picture and how awesome life can be for me if only I allowed myself to truly live. The sky for me, looked like my starting point.
“We can’t escape pain; we can’t escape the essential nature of our lives. But we do have a choice. We can give in and relent, or we can fight, persevere, and create a life worth living, a noble life. Pain is a fact; our evaluation of it is a choice.” ~ Jacob Held
I had been a prisoner of my mind for so long a time that my world lost all its brightness and shine. My mind held me captive and made me feel worthless and inferior.
I had given my mind such power that it controlled me and my life instead of the other way round. I allowed such negative thoughts fill my mind and I lived a lie…..I felt I couldn’t achieve anything….I felt I was of no importance to the world and my life had no meaning.
I lost it.
My journey back from that dusky life began with a TOTAL MIND TRANSFORMATION and this story I shared in my book, THE FORTE: A GUIDE TO BUILDING A BEAUTIFUL MIND AND SPIRIT.
“I have for many years endeavored to make this vital truth clear; and still people marvel when I tell them that I am happy. They imagine that my limitations weigh heavily upon my spirit, and chain me to the rock of despair. Yet, it seems to me, happiness has very little to do with the senses. If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the earth is ours, and that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields because the Artist in our souls glorifies creation. Surely, it gives dignity to life to believe that we are born into this world for noble ends, and that we have a higher destiny than can be accomplished within the narrow limits of this physical life.” ~ Helen Keller
A few days ago, I successfully published and launched it into the world and this book for me, holds a special place in my heart because of what it is about.
I realize that a lot of us are prisoners to ourselves. We limit our potentials and abilities because we are just scared of living. We are terrified of having a great life hence we settle for one of mediocre.
This is painfully sad.
No one should have to limit themselves or abilities out of fear. We are a people born to excel and rule. We are meant to take charge of our lives and ABSOLUTELY LIVE.
“Nothing truly stops you. Nothing truly holds you back. For your own will is always within your control. Sickness may challenge your body. But are you merely your body? Lameness may impede your legs. But you are not merely your legs. Your will is bigger than your legs. Your will needn’t be affected by an incident unless you let it.” ~ Epictetus
It is because of this, I wrote this book to open the eyes of those who still feel trapped in themselves and are unable to make meaning out of their lives.
I am all for transforming the world positively in the best way possible and contrary to what majority may believe, I am of the opinion that healing the world and making it a better place begins with each and everyone of us….not the government or leaders but every one of us.
- It begins with us recognizing how important we are and how vital the role we play in life, is in the scheme of things.
- It begins with us acknowledging how unique and special we are in our own different ways.
- It begins with us stepping out of our comfort zones and flying high as we are meant to.
- It begins with us believing that we are more than we see now or even fear to admit.
- It begins with us deciding to put our talents and gifts to great use and add quality value to the world.
- It begins with us changing our thought process and seeing the possibilities in doing things with a positive mindset while we rid ourselves of negativities.
- It begins with us choosing to be happy because we want to be and not because of others.
- It begins with us loving, respecting, appreciating ourselves and be who we really are not trying to be copies of others.
- It begins with a total mind transformation.
“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” ~ Anthony Robbins
And to contribute my quota to positive world change, I started this blog to share with the world my thoughts on how life can be as beautiful as we desire if only we are willing to see and live it.
Now, I have climaxed this year with this amazing book, THE FORTE: A GUIDE TO BUILDING A BEAUTIFUL MIND AND SPIRIT and you know why it is so wonderful, because it gives you the right platform you need to begin the new year.
In different blog posts, I have dropped tidbits of how powerful the mind is and how it can either make or mar you.
That amazing, fun, exciting and interesting life we all crave and desire, is right there within our grasp. The only thing putting it out of reach is our limited mindset.
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Your mind is your most powerful tool ever and how you use it can either be to your advantage or disadvantage. Your mind is the determinant of whether you ace it or flunk it in your life, career, finances, and all other aspects of life.
It is your mind that keeps you chained to poverty or hands you the key to the treasure chest. Your perception is borne out of the kind of mindset or mentality you have.
Wayne Dyer did say, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.
You can do and be whatever it is you want to be…..you can live whatever happy life you choose to live. It is all within your reach.
