Start something simple. Focus on cleaning out your closet, or the garage, or any other task that you have been putting off. Move in that direction. Start something. Decide what you want to achieve and begin to tell yourself that you can do it. When you change your life, the words that you are repeating to yourself can change the way you feel. When you believe that something is going to produce great pleasure, you can tell yourself that, for the joy that is set before you, the trial is not to be considered.
When you reach a point where it seems like you cannot figure out a solution, that is when the illusion of failure will keep you from reaching your goals. In reality, if you feel strongly enough about something, no amount of time or perceived lack of resources will keep you from achieving what you believe. The potential is there. You do not have a need; you have undiscovered resources. That is called limitless thinking.
Anything in life that you really want is usually because you believe that it will make life better for you, and it is a good feeling. When you feel good, you act differently. When you go through physical or mental discomfort and relief comes, it creates a deeper appreciation. Every act of gratitude refines your soul; your intellect, reason, and emotion. Emotion is created by a motion. Whatever you are feeling is related to how you are using your body. You feel better about things when you take care of your body. For example, if you are at your computer … Continue Reading
When I was a little kid, I heard my aunt say to my mother that I have an olive complexion. The only olive I had ever seen was green. I looked at myself in the mirror and asked myself if I was really green. I did not know that what it really meant was that I had a tanned complexion. For years and years the thought came to me that when people looked at me I looked green to them. I worked that into my fear of being around people. My aunt was not trying to put me down. … Continue Reading
Begin to make a list of your dreams and thoughts. This is not a wish list or pipe dreams, but a list of the things you desire to see an increase in by setting goals and positioning yourself so that opportunities are not missed. I heard someone say to me one time that they had an opportunity come into their life through something they had invented. Then, somebody told them there was no market for it and it had already been done by someone else. Needless to say, they got very discouraged. I said to them, “You know, if you’re … Continue Reading
If you really want change, not just a rearrange, but real change in your life, you must begin to pay close attention to the words that you repeat to yourself. You cannot continually tell yourself that you are getting old and forgetful, or that you can hardly get up and down. Be careful of the words you repeat to yourself because you carry resurrection life and will draw to yourself whatever the words say. Certain words can change the very way you feel and the way you give meaning to different things. When you really get ready to bring change … Continue Reading
Today, I’d like to give you words of encouragement. Regardless of the situation that you are confronted with, you can win. I have heard it said that there are overcomers in this world. I found out that you have to overcome, before you come over to another expression of love, life, faith, joy, and peace. The circumstances are an invitation saying you cannot stay where you are and think you are embracing change. I want to talk to you about increasing your attitude toward embracing change. Many times we want to rearrange things instead of turn the familiar loose. I … Continue Reading
Something that I have learned over these many years is the importance of rest. We talk about an increase in money, time, talent, and treasure, but you also need to know how to have an increase of doing everything from a position of rest. It is so significant. I really believe God’s best is a people at rest; not always trying to achieve but simply coming to a place where, according to the Word of God, all your cares are cast on Him because He cares for you. I find it very relaxing to me that I can get a … Continue Reading
