2 Cor. 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 
The only way we can posses a healthy mind in this sin cursed world, is to behold our Lord and savior Jesus Christ on a consistent basis.  A positive attitude, trying our best to be a good person, and fostering good thought will not do it, if those thought 

patterns are not centered around Jesus Christ.  

Some may argue and say, "why would I want to think about God all the time.  Yes I want to think about him, but not all the time."  The problem is that we believe that we can stand on our own.  We believe that we can do something.  The fact is, we cannot sustain ourselves even for a minute without God's protection.  We are no match for the devil.  Often times when we think peace and safety then sudden destruction comes.  We should have a burning desire to retain God in our thoughts at all times. Consider this scripture:

Romans 1:28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
When we walk in the imaginations of our own mind, fornication, fear, doubt and evil surmising will surface.  True wisdom and mental health come only from God. 
There are many evils in this world that are fighting for the supremacy of our minds.  Therefore, it is paramount that we guard well the avenues to our minds, by keep our eyes single upon Jesus Christ.

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be  ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
The renewing of our minds is only achieved by reading the word of God.  He wants us to develop mentally and spiritual. The cultivation of our minds should not be prevented by poverty or unfavorable situations.  If there is a will there is a way.  The objective is:

Philippians 2:5
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
When we seek the wisdom of this world, our minds get diseased and fear, doubt, anxiety, spiritual darkness and ill-health are the sure results.  Those attributes should never characterize the children of God.  We should never allow the truth in God's words to depreciate before our minds because those who profess it do not live consistent lives. Jesus and only Jesus is our example.

1 Peter 3:8

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
