Change your thoughts and changer your life

In the television miniseries Queen, Halle Berry, who played the title role, said to her husband, played by Danny Glover: "You was a slave. I was a slave. We free now, but we still think like slaves. We still think that it our place to serve. And that's all negras ever gonna be if we go on thinkin' like that. We got to start takin' what we can get instead of just gettin' what we are allowed to have."

Proverbs 23:7 says "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. The late British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said: "Nurture great thougts, for you will never go higher than your thoughts." Auther John C. Maxwell says in his book Thinking for a Change: "Unsuccessful people focus their thinking on survival. Average people focus their thinking on maintenance. Successful people focus their thinking on progress."

What is the total mindset of the African American community today? Is the majority thinking about survival, thinking about maintenance, or thinking about progress? What are the results? I sthe majority surviving, maintaining, or progressing? The most important question is what category does the reader choose to leave and what category he or she chooses to move into? What category will he or she teach his or her children to be in for a lifetime? You change your thoughts and you change your life. Take what you can get in ways that are legal and moral.

Don't get what you are allowed to have.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
