Change Your AssociationWritten by Daniel N. Brown
Continued from page 1
Again, best ways to change your thinking is by changing your association. I am not saying you must never be friends with certain people but sometimes you must love certain people from a distance. Personally, I severed three relationships that were dragging me down.
I still love these three people. I just don't go out regularly with them anymore. If they are ever in need of something I will definately be there for them. But as long as they remain unwilling to become more positive about themselves and their lives, then I choose not to let their negativity rub off on me.
Whatever you need to do to become more of a positive thinking person with higher expectations, you need to do it. It is written in Philippians 4:8, "Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things."

Do You Have a Vision?Written by by Daniel N. Brown
Continued from page 1
Are you like that? Maybe you are afraid to get your hopes up in case "it doesn't work out." If it doesn't work out you will still be disappointed. You might as well get your hopes up and believe! Jesus said, "All things are possible to him who believes" (Mark 9:23). But, "all things being possible" is a conditional statement because it is dependant on your belief or disbelief. So how do you start dreaming again? Since a dream is nothing more than a thought, or a series of thoughts, you begin there; by controlling your thoughts (you must control your thoughts or they will control you). Stop thinking negatively and begin to believe for great things. Search deep down for what it is that gets you excited. Find it, believe in it, and confess it.
It is vital that once you establish what it is that you want, that you back it up with words. Jesus said in Mark 11:23, "He who believes that those things which he says shall come to pass, shall have whatsoever he says."
There is a God-given dream inside you. Bring it out and live your dream!
