Our mind is our greatest asset. It can be our best friend or our worst enemy. It has the ability to help us succeed at great levels, or to be the source of our failure. Our ability to control our thoughts, is the catalyst which determines what direction we will go.
We expose ourselves with our words. What comes out of our mouths in the heat of the moment, exposes what we have been rehearsing in our mind. Our actions expose the thoughts we have rehearsed. Our ability to choose, first begins with the choice of what we determine to allow in our mind.
What are we putting into our mind, helps give us the reference for which to write the scripts we will enact upon. Every good writer knows the importance of research, before they write their first word. We are the same. Our observation of others, gives us the references we draw from.
What do we spend the majority of our day researching? How is this research reflected in our thoughts, attitude, and actions?
Like our body, our mind needs fuel to consume in order to maintain a healthy state. We can often correlate what we put into our body, with what we put into our mind. If we have become addicted to foods and beverages which do not help us sustain a healthy body, we most likely will be addicted to consuming information into our mind, which doesn't help us sustain a healthy mind.
Addiction go beyond drugs and alcohol. Emotional addiction are just as difficult to break. Food addictions are one of the most difficult, because they are seen by the majority of society as enjoyable and non-harming. Those who strive to eat more healthy are often ridiculed, rather than admired.
Often we see the same correlation when it comes to our mind. Those who choose to consume information to strengthen and enhance their knowledge are ridiculed at a very young age. Yet it is these young children who will spend around a decade of their formative years studying, laying a strong foundation for success lasting 5+ decades.
Today, let us reflect on what we put into our minds. Let us take time to determine what areas of improvement we should take, to enhance our mental strength.

What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what is rattling around in our heads. We're just reading the script we've written and rehearsed.
We look into the mirror to find and flaws and fix, before stepping out our door and into the world. Introspection is the mirror for within.
Fear is an indication of our mind running wild with speculation. Focus on facts. Facts are tangible. Allowing us to strategize how to overcome.
