Last post we were discussing the definition of coveting and how it can take root in our lives. To rid ourselves of anything that could possibly be perceived as coveting is to stop looking at what others have and comparing your fruit to theirs. You may have been given the same opportunity to flourish, but you are in a different season or you might just have more to overcome, to learn from so that when it is time, you have the maturity, knowledge, and understanding to know what to do with what you have been entrusted with.
Hi friends! Last time we were talking about success and creating results. The journey to creating results can seem so smooth until a pit fall comes your way. A pit fall is something that must change in you first in order to move forward and create the life you truly desire. Lets take a look and see which one of these pit falls best describes you and how you will overcome it.
The first pit fall is false pride and ego. False pride and ego is over-estimating and compensating your abilities. When you size up your competition to match their credentials, when you obsess to be better than everyone else and strive to achieve results, when the results and success that you have aren’t good enough, when you think you are already better than everyone else and don’t need any more skills and training because you already know it; these are all classic signs of false pride and ego. Just remember one thing, pride always comes before a fall.
Have you ever felt qualified or led to do certain things in your life? Were your heart strings ever tugged? Imagining the feeling of something stirring inside can be very exciting. These desires that are being laid on your heart were put there to give you strength and endurance for the calling that has been placed upon your life. As you contemplate or even take action steps towards what your destiny may look like, things can seem smooth and sailing; everything is going just the way you are wanting.
Just as you are picking up momentum….
There is a bump and next an obstacle in your path. You were sure you had everything figured out and all the pieces were put in place for you had already thought through the possibilities. How do you handle the challenge of overcoming that? Do you remain even-keeled and press through carefully seeking action steps to rectify the situation OR do you let your emotions get the best of you to the point that you begin self-sabotaging in getting in the way?
Ever have one of those days where you have a checklist to get accomplished, but the emotions are just flowing? You have a choice! Your day is not over, it’s just beginning! How you start your day does not have to be the end of your day!
Either you wallow in self-pity and focus on self OR you make a decision to press through your feelings and stay the course. You can make a decision to stay stuck in your situation and let your feelings paralyze you OR you can focus on taking action on the things you can get done.
