“When you have control over your thoughts, you will have control over your life.” Unknown
“Control your own destiny or someone else will.” ~Jack Welch
Hi Diamonds! You’ve heard me say this several times since I’ve been blogging. Where the mind goes the man follows. What you focus on expands. Think about how you can be intentional and deliberate in making what you focus on positive, meaningful and beneficial to propel you forward to flourish.
What’s restraining you from moving forward and walking in your full God given purpose, calling and potential? Consider, could it be your mindset, your thoughts, fear, intimidation, insecurities, doubts, disbelief, limiting beliefs, low self-esteem, distractions, lack of confidence, lack of courage, lack of know-how, uncertainties, failure, other people’s opinion, condemnation, judgement, labels, stereotypes, negative narratives, negativity, hostile and toxic environments, negative influences, imperfections, complacency, or a combination of the above? The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
Your Effort and Energy is Valuable.
Fear, change, and forward movement of time are inevitable – put effort into what you have control of, like facing fear head on, it is not a stop sign; like embracing change – grow with it, change will happen with or without you; and time – our most precious gift and commodity – use it wisely, it’s priceless, however once it’s gone you can’t get it back. In essence, don’t put your valuable energy and effort into what you can’t control; allocate it towards what you can. I struggled with many of the above things mentioned for far too long prior to my life transformation, so I speak as one who once has lived in bondage, imprisonment, and with strongholds, so I know what it’s like and there isn’t much sustainable happiness and joy there. Now I am walking in my God given purpose and calling and it’s true freedom, happiness, joy, peace and fulfillment.
TODAY is the Day For Your New Beginning.
You are worth working on YOU, your self-growth and personal development. We get one life to live, make yours count. If you don’t take control of your life, this world and the people in it will control your life as they place great demands on your time, energy, and emotions. Ask yourself, “How much time do you give to investing in YOU?” You feel that nudge that there is something more for you in this life; you desire greater contentment and fulfillment and need the discipline, tools, and accountability to get there. Make the commitment to yourself that TODAY is the day for your New Beginning – a New YOU – the you that you were created to be in this life awaits. It is time to be-the-best-version-of-yourself‼! Push yourself – no one else is going to do it for YOU! Commitment, Discipline, Consistency and Dedication are key – Be accountable to YOU. Be uplifted and inspired. You matter and I believe in YOU!
