Good Day Gang!
You already know it’s JHCO. here to bring you satisfaction and a whole lotta action. In today’s post, I’m going to share a story I heard from the late great Rev Ike, You are what you feed your mind, that’s why it’s important to subscribe and digest blogs like this let’s go!
As a man thinks, so is he
There’s a story I like to tell of a hotdog vendor who sold very fine hotdogs by the side of the road. His business was booming, people loved his hot dogs, and they bought more and more. The man believed in his business and the need for someone to do what he was doing.
This man was so busy advertising and selling his hot dogs and making lots of money that he didn’t even have time to read the newspaper or listen to the radio. Consequently, he never heard a word about a predicted recession or the need to cut back to save the economy. As long as he continued to offer his delicious hot dogs, his customers bought them. He kept selling, and they kept buying.
Then one day his well-educated son told him that an economic recession was coming. His son told him that people wouldn’t have enough money to buy his hot dogs. And the hot dog vendor believed this, so he quit advertising. He quit trying to sell his hot dogs. He started ordering less. He even went so far as to take down the sign at his roadside stand. And sure enough, people stopped coming to him. People stopped buying his hot dogs, and he went broke. Then he thought to himself, how smart my son is predicting this.
This story gives us an idea of how powerful your mind is! If you start believing something, it will happen. It doesn’t make any difference whether your thoughts are good or bad, it will come about if you think it will come about. Those of you who follow my work heard me say this many times. Everything in life comes from the ideas in your mind. This is what Jesus meant when he said “According to your faith be it unto you.” Matthew 9:29
