Riches, Mediocrity And Poverty Begin in the Mind

Riches Mediocrity And Poverty Begin in the Mind

Since post MBA entrance exams, most of IIMs and Top MBA Institutes are conducting WAT ( Written Abiity Test ) to check language skills which can't be developed overnight hence, practice matters a lot. 

Please read following topic on WAT and develop your own skills : Riches, Mediocrity And Poverty Begin in the Mind

Your own perception about who you are, what you think of yourself and the surroundings around you, are a product of your own mind. The most successful of people can sometimes be the loneliest, the poorest of people can sometimes be really happy. It is how you look at your situation and how you deal with it that shapes your thinking and your perspective on life.

What this proves is that we become what we think. Riches, mediocrity and poverty, besides being linked to tangible, material things are also indicative of a person’s state of mind. A person can choose to think and be satisfied, happy and proud of himself or choose to think of himself as a mediocre person with no self- belief. It is this of self-deprecation that makes the person poor.

It is human tendency to become what we think over a period of time. A lot of thinkers such as Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Robin Sharma have claimed that habits in human beings are formed in 21 days. This means that when we constantly think or do something for a period of 21 days, the human mind accepts it as a habit unless forced to break the habit. Essentially, all successful people become successful first in the mind, and those thoughts are then translated into action. However, if you don’t feed positive thoughts to your mind in the first place, you will not be able to break the shackles of mediocrity that surrounds you.

It’s all in the mind. The mind that creates wonderful things like chairs, telephone, electricity, trains and so on also creates bombs, guns, missiles and poison, things that are capable of destroying the very existence of mankind. In a nutshell, human mind is an extremely powerful and potent tool. If we can use our minds to create an environment of positivity around us and gain some control over our wandering minds, we will be able to direct our minds towards the path of success and will be able to extract the maximum out of it.

We should learn to be balanced. Tilting on either extreme will only prove harmful for us. Taking pride in yourself, thinking highly of yourself is fine but overdoing it will only take you to the doors of negative qualities such as arrogance, avarice and narcissism. On the other hand, thinking too low of yourself that you are no good and always doubting your abilities will create a void inside you filled with self-doubt, which in turn, will ruin all aspects of your life. Therefore, we should try to be balanced in our head and derive strength from our thoughts rather than being pulled down by them.

Our thoughts decide who we are, how we live our lives and how we interact with others. Riches, mediocrity and poverty are nothing but a reflection of your mind. It’s not money and material things that make you rich or poor but your thoughts.
