People sometimes are frustrated with their current situation and unhappy about things in their life. What you should do, is know that you caused it and you can change it, with your thoughts! Also, you must understand that there is a time for everything and you should enjoy the moment no matter what. As doing that will change it for the better faster anyway!
Remember there is a time for planting seeds, a time for nurturing and cultivating the soil, a time to pull weeds, a time to water the plants a time for harvest, and a time to enjoy the fruits of your labour!
There is a time to rest and a time to work. There is a time to prepare, train, plan and there is a time to execute your plans and go to battle. No matter where you are and what your situation is you can be happy and fulfilled knowing that the season is going to change and this moment is all you’ve got and there will be none like this. Do it! Enjoy it!
The world has been thinking wrong. We think our greatest enemies are people from other tribes, religion, colours, nations; people who don’t support us, our competitors, or even our family members who are not doing as much as we are. And this thinking is responsible for the hate and negativity we spread.
On the contrary, our worst enemies are not outside but inside of us. Every human being harbours a traitor who is always on the watch to thwart his ambition, to cause failure for his efforts. That traitor is doubt.
You must realize that no matter who you are, or what you do, you will always be followed about by certain mental enemies, mental traitors, which will try to dissuade you from doing the best you can or achieving your dreams whatever they may be. Doubt is one of the most insistent of these.
I think of my life and how much more I would have achieved if I hadn’t doubted myself. While its easy to point out blame to others who didn’t support us, or who doubted our success, we often doubted ourselves first before others, who saw through us began confirming our doubts.
Put your principles into practice. It is what you do and not what you say that matters. Stimulate your ideas into action. Dormant ideas and aspirations are of no value when they remain inside you, it is only when they are put into action that they become value to you and the world.
Make your thoughts work for you. Transform your desires into deeds, your resolutions into results. Your personal powers are made paramount by ideals, principles, desires and resolutions. The specific ways in which you use these powers in your daily life will largely determine how successful you become.
Give earnest attention to these vital things, apply them intelligently and you will go forward to inevitable achievement. Success will be yours precisely to the degree that you use your powers right.
Many people talk about their work in life as a higher purpose. There can be no higher purpose than to serve God at all times. Dedicate your life to the service of God! And this can be done in your daily activities whatever they may be.
If it is well to serve God at any time then it is well to serve God at all times. If you should use one of your gifts for the honour of God, then you should use all of your gifts for this great purpose. If it is desirable that you should practise wisdom, purity, and righteousness some of the time, surely it is equally desirable to practise these great virtues all the time.
If it is alright to study the bible sometimes, then it is alright to study the Bible every day. If you can pray to God when you have difficulties, then you should always make out time to pray to God always,
There can be no higher purpose in life than to serve God at all times, in every thought, word and act. It is what you have been called to do, and it is your privilege to do this with your life. Think on these words.
Oh how we waste golden moments daily, and yet we claim we don’t have enough time to pursue our dreams. Most of us are familiar with the phrase; if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I hear it used every time, in fact it is shared as tweets and posts on facebook too even by those whose life is going nowhere.
Take a look around you and you will crowds of people, restless, uncertain and wandering through life. You will find men and women, boys and girls drifting hour by hour, aiming at nothing and going nowhere.
As for you, be well advised and make sure you fill your life with a definite purpose. Know where you are going and what you wish to accomplish and what means you intend to go about accomplishing that purpose. Make use of the valuable moments that the majority of the unthinking people in our world are throwing away.
Realize how well spent minutes multiply into hours of productive efforts. You have all the time there is, and now is the best time to do the best that is in you.
These words taken from Hosea 4:6 kept ringing in my ears all day: “My people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge…” It got me thinking and wondering, how many people have lost their jobs, how many marriages have been wrecked, how many students have flunked tests and examination, simply because they didn’t have the right information. Yet it hasn’t stopped, even this moment people are still in tears, in pains, simply because of one piece of information, one secret, strategy, they didn’t possess. And I can hear them, saying I wish I had known earlier, I wish I hadn’t wasted so much of time doing the wrong stuff, I wish I had spend more time reading instead of watching TV….regrets!
What about you? Are you making your day count or you are just passing the time? So many of us are passing the time when we should be improving…
One thing I notice about most successful people I have come in contact with, is their courage in asking for what they want. From asking for favours, to asking for their dues, to making those important calls that will push their businesses or families forward.
And this is also a spiritual law given by Christ Himself in the bible when he said,”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” While most people have mastered the art of asking God in prayers what they want, they often fail to do the same with their fellow man.
Folks, everyone of us came here naked and empty handed. And this means everything you need to succeed is already in the hands of others, and you must learn to ask if you will ever get it.
Your success is a question away! What do you want? Is it a job, a favour, a wife, a husband, finances, or something else? Whatever it is you want is possible if you just learn to ask.
In this inspiring episode, I discuss more on why you need to be asking questions more, and how you should ask. I encourage you to listen to it and share it with others as well.
