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.
Was thinking of you my friend and wanted to share a word of encouragement with you. This morning I was reading my devotional as I always do. At first I didn’t quite understand nor grasp while I was reading about seasons. It took the day to progress to remind me why it is I read my morning devotional! I was so thankful that I did because it gave me such great hope. The message was so good that I could not wait to share it with you. It immediately made me think you!
This morning’s devotional was on ‘seasons’. Just like in part of the world, there are 4 seasons experienced. Each season is very different from the other and no two are alike. The seasons in life that we endure are much of the same way. Some seasons are extremely encouraging and uplifting and in those times it seems like everything is going just perfect. Then there are seasons where our day, week, month, or year, may encounter some unexpected challenges. We can choose to focus on the challenges in front of us and wonder why they are never ending. Our attitude can be aloof, callous, negative, and depressing OR we can choose to ASK God to give us a moment of teaching, a lesson and tutorial of how to bring about good and learn from the situation, challenges, and tribulations you are currently facing.
