BUYING IDEAS AND PERSPECTIVES
No one might have believed that young Adolf Hitler would cause the extermination of more than three (3) million Jews when he became the supreme leader of Germany in 1934.
Between 1939 and 1944, He initiated the second world war when his German forces invaded the countries he wanted to take control of.
Wherever the armies of Adolf Hitler were found, they left behind them havoc, death and destruction.
What really happened to this man called Adolf Hitler?
Adolf Hitler, who was one of the five children in the house born to Alois Hitler, his father in 1889, once considered becoming a priest as a result of his mother’s, Klara Hitler, habit in taking him to church where he sang in the choir.
However, he always got on the wrong side of his domineering father who had anger issues and drinking problems. Young Adolf was always beaten on any slightest provocation by his father.
The constant beatings, insults and mockery by his father got so worst for Adolf Hitler that his only thoughts were mainly to survive till he would get older and leave the house.
DURING ADOLF’S EARLY YEARS, HIS FATHER NEVER REALIZED HIS PROVOCATIVE TREATMENT ON ADOLF WAS GRADUALLY TURNING ADOLF HITLER INTO A MONSTER HE WOULD LATER GO ON TO BECOME IN THE FUTURE.
At school, Adolf who was an intelligent and bright child, withdrew to himself psychologically, preferring to think about battles or wars than study. He eventually left school with no qualifications at 16.
Beyond these events is what we need to critically look at. During the early years of Hitler, what really was going on in his mind? What would have the world’s most wicked man be thinking while growing up?
Beyond the maltreatment by his father, the ideas he began to subscribe to would later form most of his belief systems which he turned into public policies and mandates when he became supreme leader of Germany.
These were ideas which demean the existence of a certain human race, placed his country far above any other and exalted the beliefs of his superiority.
He really subscribed to ideas that put the world in jeopardy.
How about you?
What ideas and Perspective are you subscribing to now?———————–As you try to navigate life, you definitely will come across different ideas, opinions and perspectives that will aim to colour the way you see life.
These perspective can be in form of advice from your parents while growing up, it can be in form of doctrines through the religious institution you attend and can also be in form of lectures you receive in your tertiary institution. Every perspective you accept on any issue that pertains life will either help or hinder your journey through life.
The human mind is infiltrated with different ideas daily and is the decision of a man to know which idea to subscribe to and which not to.
For example, someone who you listen to can sell you a perspective of “lying in order for you to have your way.” What makes this enticing is that the person who have said this has experienced a level of result you are looking for and would want to lure you to buy into his ideas in order to get the results he or she has.
Understand that beyond the results you are looking for you must be intentional about how you get those results. This is because a man becomes what he constantly thinks on; a man becomes the model of that result before people begin to see the reality.
✓What perspective are you buying into?
✓What ideas have people sold to you? ✓What are you paying attention to?
Jesus said man do not live by bread alone but by words. . .” You are what you listen to. You are what you subscribe to.
It is easier for a man to be sexually active because he constantly feeds his minds with pornography. So, he sees every lady as an object of sex.
Destiny is not a five year thing. It is a daily living. Whatever you do each day is a way of you fulfilling Destiny. What ideas or Perspective do you have about success, family, education, children, marriage, sex or leadership?
The perspective you have subscribed into concerning these topics will influence what you do when you find yourself in those situations.
Be intentional about the perspective you buy into. Be intentional about the ideas you allow into your mind. This life is an exchange. You are exchanging something in order to get something. What you pay attention to is what will pay attention to you.Be intentional about the idea or perspective you buy.May the Spirit of Wisdom of guide you.John Great Oluwatobi Ogah,Leader.©John Ogah “22I teach people to write.
