We should have total control over our minds and bodies, but many times they are controlled by other things. We allow media and people around us to misuse and abuse our minds and bodies. After a 21 day consecration, I have learned that many of the ideas/thoughts that I allow to enter into my mind are not necessary.  Additionally, a lot of things that we put into our bodies are not good for us.

Our minds are controlled by the shows that we watch on television, the music that we listen to, the pictures that we post on Instagram, the statuses that we post on Facebook, and tweets that we tweet on Twitter. Sadly, a lot of what I see posted on social media is discouraging. People are displaying ignorance and lack of self control for the whole world to see. Truth is, you have the ability to control how you are perceived. The first way to manage that is by controlling what enters your mind. You might say you can't control what enter you minds. However, you can control what you expose yourself to, therefore limiting what controls your mind and body.

Our bodies are our temples. Yes, you can control what you put into your body and what you do with your body. Obesity is only a problem because we don't have self control. We eat what we see based on convenience and desire. We don't exercise because the television has control over our mind. So, that next episode of Scandal (that's my show) is more important than a 30 minute workout. We would rather play a video game or spend all hours of the day on Facebook. It only takes 30 minutes a day of exercise to maintain good health. We find it so hard to find time to do things that are good for us because we are so busy being controlled by things that give us comfort and pleasure.

If you gain control over your mind you have won the battle. You will never be successful if you can't control what's influencing your mind. Everything starts with the mind. From the thoughts in your mind, actions are made. Those actions can be good or bad. You have to make up your mind that you want a better life that is not influenced by things that don't bring value to your life. If you want to be smart, shut off the television and pick up a book. If reading isn't the way you learn, find someone that will mentor you. If you want to look good and feel good physically, put in the work. Get off the couch, off the Internet, put the game away, and hit the gym. You have to make changes, you have to take back control.
