Life can get nasty sometimes. It can take everything out of us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Life can make us wonder why we even try anymore. Why do we try so hard just to fail again and again? Well my friend, life is a learning wheel. Every time we spin it, we land on something that brings us knowledge and value. For instance, let’s say that you saved up your money for 10 years, every extra penny, every extra dime, every day for 10 years. You wanted to have a down payment for a brand new car, and you saved up 10k. You were so excited about this new car that you told everyone your plans, but next thing you know, you get ready to walk out the door and your ceiling caves in. Dramatic much? Yeah I know. Point is, as much as you wanted that brand new car, now you have a choice to make. Car or Ceiling? Life has a way of kicking us when we need it the least. Truth is, it isn’t happening “to” us, it’s happening “for” us. Every “bad” outcome, has a “good” reason behind it.
Staying positive in rough patches only provides greater personal growth. Hard work, determination, and a rock bottom attitude, will not only provide positive benefits but also a healthy mindset. Most people see “rock bottom” as only a negative, but it is in those times of weakness you find your greatest strength. Left, right, and up are all the choices you can choose from, anything lower than rock bottom is non-existent, unless you consider death. Again, a bit dramatic. Life will test you over and over and over again. Now, something I learned recently from a good friend of mine are that everything in life has to align. You actions need to align with your goals. Your thoughts need to align with your feelings. Your hair needs to align with…just kidding. Point is, life is unpredictable. So, how do you conquer such a force? Well, I will give you a couple tips, only if you promise to tell me what you think about this post. Deal? Cool. Let’s move on!
1.) What is it that you want? Really want. More than anything.
2.) What are your action steps to reach that goal?
3.) When you figure out what your goal is, are you thankful and grateful?
4.) Write your goals out daily. The more you see them, the more you believe them. Envision them.
Their is a reason those are your goals. Jesus has provided you a road map, now you just have to follow the steps to get to the treasure.
