BrainYour mind is the singularly most powerful tool for success that you own. It is powerful beyond measure and more valuable than the combined wealth you could ever earn in your lifetime. So, like anything of value, you must protect your mind.

But protect your mind from what? From the six enemies of your mind, that’s what. They are: disinformation (lies), depravity, garbage, shallowness, self-criticism and ignorance. Each of these enemies will be dealt with over the next few editions of this column. Here is a brief over-view of each of them:

Enemy of the mind #1: Disinformation. Disinformation is false information presented as truth with the specific intent to deceive, often referred to as propaganda. It is happening in schools, colleges and universities across the land and leaves people confused and disheartened. Your defense against disinformation and propaganda is: Search for the Truth.

Enemy of the mind #2: Depravity. Depravity refers to the moral corruption of the heart and mind; the Bible calls it sin. I know that people don’t like talking about sin, but I will because it has a particularly destructive impact on your mind, especially addictions such as drugs, alcohol and pornography. The defense strategy I will propose: Stay in the Light.

Enemy of the mind #3: Garbage. Geeks when speaking about computer software often use the phrase, garbage in – garbage out. It is the same with the mind. Defense strategy to protect your mind from pollution: Spot the Good.

Enemy of the mind #4: Shallowness. Minds that focus only on the trivial frivolities of life are weak and pathetic. Defense strategy: Study Big Ideas.

Enemy of the mind #5: Self-criticism. Sometimes you are your own worst enemy with the nasty negative self-talk you allow to influence your mind. Defense strategy: Speak Kindly to Yourself.

Enemy of the mind #6: Ignorance. People who willingly live in ignorance are no different than those who are, by not fault of their own, feeble minded. You do not want to be in this category so I will propose the following defense strategy: Seek Wisdom.

In this section (3.0: Protect Your Mind) you will learn how to feed your faith, find what is good, and to be self-constructive. Graffiti, you see, is not something that is found only on walls and railroad cars. There is also “graffiti of the mind;” the nasty, negative, harmful, meaningless junk insecure people repeatedly allow in their minds.

You have decided to make something of your life. You have a desire to accomplish some important and challenging goals. Therefore, more than any time in your life, you must protect your mind from corrupting influences that will slow your progress or even prohibit you from starting. You have a marvelous mind, so it for accomplishment.

Here you will find the help you need to do just that – and to create the variety of positive defense strategies that allow your mind to provide you with the best possible chance for personal success.
