Mental Fitness Challenge

People often use programs to get in shape physically. Some people have memberships at a gym and work out daily. Some people use diets to loose weight. Some enjoy walking or jogging with a friend to stay in shape. There are a lot of ways to do it!

It is important to stay in good shape physically. It is hard to feel good if your body doesn’t feel good. However, I believe it is even more important to stay in shape mentally. Very few people have a program to develop their mind, to discipline their thinking and help them increase their mental capacity. But nothing has a greater impact on us than our thinking. Scripture tells us that “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7) So if we want to improve something in our lives, it has to start with the mental blueprint we have created for ourselves. We can’t control our external environment, but we can control our thinking. Or we can let our environment control our thinking, and we become like a ping-pong ball in a river, going wherever to current takes us. Most people struggling with addiction are letting something else determine their thinking. Take control of your life by taking control of your mind!

At the bottom is a link to a program called the Mental Fitness Challenge. I highly recommend it as a tool to help you take control of your thinking and get your mind in shape. Often in overcoming addiction a person focuses on removing the problem. But you also have to replace the problem with something positive that will help you move your life in the right direction. This is designed to do just that. You can do this on your own, or, just like people are more consistent in a exercise program if they have a partner, I would recommend that you also do this with someone who can help you be accountable. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

When you click on that link be sure to watch the video. The men talking on the video were ranked by Inc Magazine in May 2014 in the top 50 Leadership experts. They know their stuff, and what they have put together is amazing!



  1. It all starts with having a plan and most people have particular troubles because they have no idea of where they will be or should be in life.

    Gain control to gain a future.
