In a world ? where you may be feeling a bit hopeless ? and like there is nothing, you can do. Hogwash! You CAN do something. ?
Often humans think on large grandiose scales which, believe it or not, is what actually stifles their creativity, purpose, or START! It is a “go BIG or go home!” mentality. Well, if you are trapped in that type of thinking, you might be finding yourself sitting instead of DOING. You may feel the world needs saving but there is NOTHING you can do. ?
Take a moment to think about a turning point in your life. Chances are that it was a very specific event involving a specific person or outcome … usually one main motivator. Right? One event, one person CAN catapult an entirely new season in your life. Are you with me? So, IF that event or person impacted your life, why can’t YOU be that person for someone else? Why can’t YOU be the vessel for something so LIFE changing for someone that it causes them to enter into a new season of their own life? What IF you decide to start with ONE? Making a difference in just ONE person’s life? Maybe even TWO? Can you imagine the IMPACT something so simple could bring?
Get out of your own way and get going! You have a LIFE to LIVE. You have CHANGE to exact in this world. You have SOMEONE you can make a POSITIVE impact on right now. START NOW … MAKE A DIFFERENCE. BE THE CHANGE THE WORLD NEEDS, RIGHT NOW.
Same situation, different perspective. You can choose to look at the situation as a failure or you can see it as a learning opportunity. How will seeing it as a learning opportunity help? People tend to lose their identity in their experiences. What I mean by this is if people have experienced what they view as failures in their lives, then they often view themselves as a failure. But if you view the situation as an opportunity to learn, you will have a desire to do better, keep trying and not give up!
Too many people judge others and feel justified in their action of doing so. They forget their mistakes, their imperfections and focus outwardly on other people to find their faults. It often doesn’t stop there, they then talk to others to spread poison of their opinion instead of hope. Have you ever had someone point out a flaw or a stain and then soon you find yourself focusing on the stain, something that previously you did not even notice?
Many say that is just human nature or just the way society is but it doesn’t have to be. Stop the hate. Stop looking for the flaws. Start with self reflection and become the best you that you can be. You have no idea what others go thru … stop judging and choose to look for the good, to FORGIVE and learn how to love your fellow man.
Your thoughts will lead you either to Victory or away from it. You were born to be a CHAMPION. If you feel stuck in a rut and are wondering why the same cycle is continuing in your life … it is time to start thinking like a CHAMPION! The moment the voice of negativity starts bullying you, immediately make a decision to replace that negative thought(s) with Truth of who you were made to be! You were NOT put on this earth to fail or live in negativity, depression, anxiety or anything like it! Just because a negative curve ball may be thrown your way does not mean you need to catch it or hold onto it … THROW IT BACK! Being a CHAMPION takes discipline and being intentional; it doesn’t just happen. You can do this … begin with no longer accepting every negative thought no matter how fast or hard it was thrown. Reject what is not Truth. Be patient with yourself. It is going to take some discipline but as you stay with this and don’t give up, you will see positive changes in your life.
Know who you are and do not let the influencers of this world take you down a path you were never to go down. What is your personal Truth? Who are you in that Truth? Are you the same no matter what the environment or do you mold and change to the environment around you? There is no one else like you. You are destined for something no one else may understand especially those closest to you. Do you know that most of the people who have impacted humanity in a big way have had to overcome adversities often from their own family, inner circle and those who are to encourage and lift them? Stand strong and know who you are … no longer give mind to or believe the negativity spoken about you whether it is behind your back or to your face. Rise above it and live your personal Truth.
