Path Minded is "Forward Thinking." When we think forward, we are constantly navigating best possible avenues to travel life's Journey. Many times thought is interrupted by subtle influences trough the issues of life and suggests different alternatives to reaching our Goals. Acquiring Goals are determined by what kind of thinker a person is.
Poor "Thinkers" are POOR! Not just in finances but every area of life. When the enemy comes in like a flood. You cannot accept the ruins of the rushing waters. You must possess a rebuild mentality. You must have an... "I AM"... "I CAN"... "SUCCESS" mentality at all times. You have to think like the Greatness you are.
You have to be:
GREATFUL... Not until I became GREATFUL did I experience GREATFULNESS. People like to stand back and watch GREATNESS, when in fact, they... should be GREATNESS. Don't be an objective observer of Greatness, when you can be Great yourself. I remember when I was homeless and I had a moment of trying to figure out what happened, which took me into an instant ponder. This momentary lapse carried me like the ghost of christmas past, present and future through a necessary pause that helped me realize something... and in that moment I saw the realities of my life. The way I thought, the way I spoke and the way I acted. I quickly discovered that my actions did not align with what I wanted in life, let alone the direction that my life was suppose to travel. I was driving down the wrong road. I was on someone else's Path and the journey I had taken would never fulfill me because it wasn't my journey. Many times people jump on someone else's journey because it looks more appealing or it has all the shine and glimmer that attracts them. It looks more exciting or better than your own. The reality is, that everyone's Path has something attractive to someone else. Humanity was designed that way. They were designed to be independently dependent, one upon the other. That's why everyone has to do their part in order to benefit mankind... to help the world become a better place... or to advance society and leave an indelible mark in the world that will change the world, or someone, for good. Champion your cause, champion something Great that moves people to Greatness, Champion the thing you have been designed to do and leave a mark that shines bright in the lives of others. Be who you are intended to be and discover the joy and success that comes with flowing in Purpose.
Do you wonder why some people are extremely successful and some are not? It's because the extremely successful has bought into Purpose. They have completly resolved and accepted who they are and what they are to be. Your Path is specifically designed for you. Your personality, character and personal core values is all part of what makes you the perfect spokesperson... the perfect messenger for your Purpose. No one can tell your story like you, no one has walked in your shoes to understand the nuances of your Path. Your destiny and Purpose is directly connected to the success of others and you actually have an obligation to walk in that which you were called and designed to fulfill. If you choose not to walk in your Greatness, you miss all the best parts of you. You don't get to see what life would be like successful, rich, wealthy, healthy or famous. You don't get to feel the feeling of popularity and acceptance. You don't get to experience the joy that comes back when you help others or give to someone, the thing that they needed in life to catapult them over the top, to now reach their greatest potential. You don't get to live a Purposeful life, because you have chosen to be average and have average things, with average children and average thoughts, speaking average and doing average stuff. God didn't make you to be average. He made you to be Great! He made you to freely express your talents to a world that craves who and what you are and what you have to offer them.
Being GREATFUL is a way of life. It is how you live. It is a confidence in knowing who you are and operating in your max capacity to influence the best in others. Your flow awakens the Potential in others and your mere presence invigorates and excites any and everyone around you, regardless of there previous or current state of mind. There is a universal soul connection that GREATFUL people have, which immediately resonates with those who need a touch of inspiration. You are that light in darkness that shows the way to possibilities and what dreams may come to be in the lives of others. You are more than the average Joe who sits on talent and selfishly squanders his/her own possibilities, leaving the world void of a brighter view of what lies ahead for themselves. We are all candles in darkness lighting the way through caverns of twist and turns that lead to silos of untapped potential... engraved upon torches labeled with millions of names who will light the cords that ignite the burning, aching desires trapped deep inside the minds of hopeless people living a cycle of just getting by, poor existence and average acceptance. A cycle which constantly suppresses the giant of Greatness living inside of them, bursting at the seams, just dying for exposure. Are you one of those names labeled on a torch, engraved with untapped potential in some silo... or are you the one, lighting the way through caverns' many twist and turns, leading people to silos to discover and possess their torch, as to ignite the perpetual fire of millions, spreading like wildfire along their journey, now ablaze... leaving a trail of possibilities in its wake?
Being GREATFUL isn't just Grateful, it is a way of life and strongly describes an unbending resolve to Purpose that benefits the lives of others. Take a look at the definition for GREATFUL...

When it comes to mindset and operating in WHO you ARE... you'll quickly discover that it's not hard for you or others to identify the type of thinker you personify . First of all, it resonates and anyone around you can easily determine your thinking pedigree by the manifestation of your thoughts. The Bible makes it very clear when it instructs us how to spot the type of people we encounter. The Bible basically says that, you'll know them by what you see and hear demonstrated through Thought, Speech and Acts. These are low hanging fruit from the trees of humanity. In Proverbs 23:7, the Bible says; For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
There are three types of thinkers...
POOR - These thinkers can't see beyond their present circumstances.
AVERAGE - These thinkers accept and promote basic existence.
GREAT - These thinkers exceed all natural expectations.
An idle mind is the devil's workshop. The devil runs around looking to suggest to anyone sitting idle the adventure of processing things that happen adversely in their lives. This is considered mental warfare. When the devil attacks a person and it appears that he has won a battle, by stealing from that person, through; the loss of a job, car getting repossessed, losing a close loved one or losing their home... His next step is to up the ante with influence using people, places and things, so loved... that you secretly indulge them. At that moment, most human beings expose an opening in their armor. They usually sit for a moment, take off their breastplate or helmet, put down their sword and ponder or as they would say; "What just happened? Give me a minute... I need to process what just happened here." Some go into a trance or deep gaze and during that spell of perplexity is a person vulnerable to death blows.
But God doesn't want us to ponder or process what just happened. He wants us to think on the victory, how to overcome attacks and positive outcomes that are best suited for our Purpose. He wants us to visualize victories and after accomplishing each victory, to establish a written decree that includes strategic maneuvers used to expose the weaknesses and vulnerabilities from the source of the initial attack. Victories are granted by; believing that no force on earth could ever defeat you and seeing yourself already victorious. This "Great" mindset is where billionaires, millionaires, philanthropists, leaders and inventors emerge with powerfully magnetic stimulus. This mindset perpetuates a world of possibilities that infects everyone around them. It is a viral mentality.
Sometimes we gotta throw ourselves or thrust towards Greatness and the more you thrust... the more natural it becomes for you... but you have to thrust and rehearse. You must practice and continue to practice, maintaining that mindset. It's very easy to live in the; "whoa is me" syndrome... a pity party of sorts. Stop throwing these type of parties, tell yourself today... "I'm not looking for any more party goers... no more pity parties from now on."
Listening to your conscious or the weeee small voice is a learned behavior and one must practice listening, hearing and subscribing to the wisdom of their inner being. This deep rooted conscious always steer a person in the best path towards Greatness.
Yielding to past experiences or events can immediately lead to sentinel episodes during your saga or life story. This can be very damaging to your destiny, purpose and journey. Such a pause tends to lend strong consideration to options that oppose one's current path towards Greatness and should be avoided at all cost without hesitation. Don't even give thought to the past. Give thought to the path. Lean on your path, not your past. Reflect on your Path, not your past. See the Path, not your past. When you process or ponder something, let it be your path and the Greatness that you already are.
Pondering is routing course or direction. When you ponder let it be to plot the proper course that will lead you to Purpose and Greatness... any other process leads straight to destruction.
Have you ever heard a navigation system when it's plotted course has been altered? Immediately she warns you of another possible course that might be better than that you have impulsively decided upon. She first screams out; "re-routing!" and following that warning, she spews out an alternative path, possibly free of obstructions and may in fact get you to your destination on time. But navigation is never certain. It's never written in stone. Navigation is but a series of suggestions that lead to an intended destination. In life people constantly plot courses of what they think are the best routes for they and their loved ones. Sometimes the route turns out to be ideal and other times people discover dead ends, construction ahead, detours or complete gridlock. What do you do when faced with these common possibilities? Well, the first order of business when faced with similar scenarios of life, is to; relax, breath and exhale a solitary breath of peace, tranquility and calm. All important and major decisions, including "Path" choices should always be considered calmly as very prominent decisions that can render not so pleasant or even sentinel consequences. How one Thinks, Speaks and Acts (TSA) determines every aspect of their life and should always be deliberate in its function. To forward thinkers, there is no such thing as half hazard thinking, only forward thinking. Thinking Forward is "Path Thinking." One should always choose to "Reflect on their Path" as the only alternative to "Reflecting on their Past."
