“In order to find your destination, you first have to identify your current location.” We may have heard this saying before, but have we ever pondered how it relates to our mindset. People have different levels of mindset that determine how happily and successfully our lives unfold, depending on where we are. Through Episode 8 of the IYF Youth Talk Show, participants could reflect on the level of mindset with which they are currently living, as we continued to discuss the topic: Developing a Strong and Healthy Mindset, with specific focus on the classes of the mind.

Have you ever wished you were a butterfly so that you could fly away from all your problems? During Episode 5 of the IYF Youth Talk Show, discussions were driven based on the topic, ‘Legs to Wings,’ leading participants to realize that this way of thinking was contrary to the way butterflies live. That is, before a butterfly is able to fly, it lives as a caterpillar. As it transforms into a butterfly, it endures a lot of difficulties while breaking out of the cocoon. This helps to strengthen its wings so that it is able to fly. As a butterfly, it just doesn’t fly away, but carries out the very important process of pollinating flowers so that life on earth can continue. In the same way, the difficulties we are experiencing right now are preparing us to have strong minds that can soar above many challenges. This will ultimately prepare us to live for a higher purpose and benefit the lives of others.
Most of us can probably list all the negatives that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to our lives with little effort. However, one thing that this has taught us is that true connection surpasses physical boundaries – it occurs through the heart. Even though the participants of the IYF Youth Talk Show were separated by distance and time, that didn’t stop us from connecting, sharing our hearts and having a good time.
There are so many of us that couldn’t wait until we became 18 years old to enjoy the freedom of doing what we want to do. However, when we arrived and started living our own lives, we are faced with some unexpected challenges and we realize that it’s much harder than we thought.
