Use Free fuel for your Growth.

Start by listing all the people in your life that have made any contribution to your growth whether they were sweet about it and meant you well or if they were nasty and mean and wanted you to fail. Write every name down, and how they have influenced what you do in life, where you are in life, and what you’ve learned through life. For the mean and nasty, write a general letter that says thank you for being the obstacle in my life that made me work harder, think different, go another way, move to another place, and just plain wake up. To the sweet and supportive,  one that says thank you for helping remember that I could be better, do better, live better, and think higher. Send it to yourself in the mail via snail mail, two letters, two envelopes, and then place them in a place unopened. Whenever you need to remind yourself of your worth and whether you’re headed in the right direction, just unseal the letters,open them up and read about where you’ve come from and what it took to get you here. It will remind you of the road past and strengthen you for the road ahead. Be blessed and encouraged. Know that everything you’ve faced is only making you for your greater tomorrow. DOn’t go past it, or over it, plow through and overcome it. You can, you will, you shall, you must, SURVIVE!!!!!!

Drop it while it’s HOT!!

Stop thinking about it, stop pondering, stop wondering whether it will work, quit asking questions as to when is the best time, stop giving yourself more excuses why you should take your time and reconsider, don’t listen anymore to the worries and doubts of your “friends” and family, no longer give and weight to the alarms of the media and social temperature of the day, you’ve wasted to much time, you procrastinated too long, you allowed the day to pass by, and the years to fly by, it is nearing the evening in your life and the night is at hand, what you were going to do, and what you have continually thought about, will never become real if you don’t get up, and get to it TODAY! You will ever give you credit for what you thought about doing and considered to be a grand and innovative idea, it is only what is made flesh by your action and movement that ever gets noticed, looked upon, appreciated, and enjoyed. You have been so uniquely created and so divinely gifted to bless this world with all you have imagined. Please do not let us down by your fear and fixation on doing it all tomorrow. Here is a little hint…….Tomorrow will never come!!!

How to be successful at everything.

One of the greatest keys to being succesful at anything you ever set forth to accomplish, is the skill and principle of recognizing seasons, time and opportunity. This by far is the single most greatest thing necessary insure advancement and growth in any area. The idea is that, for everything there is a season and if you can realize, recognize, capitalize and materialize within this time frame everything you touch will turn to gold. The converse is equally true in that, if you make an attempt to step forth into something new (or old) outside of YOUR season, it will inevitably be a chore, a bore, and probably one of the hardest things you’ll ever attempt. When the season is not right for you venture you will see little to no success. It’s a lot like planting seeds and harvesting. A tree or plant has a time of sowing, seeding and being planted, and then a time of watering, cultivating, pruning, and finally harvesting (or picking or reaping). If any of these actions are done out of order, the results are never fully effective. The planted seed will not reach its full growth and ripeness or will become withered and die early. It’s a principle and it works in agriculture, and in real life.
Make sure what you are doing is at the right time and in the right season for you and it. You, stuggle less, and enjoy it more!!!!

The Key to changing habits.

To thine own self be true. How real this saying is and it remanins to be seen how many people will actually take this one to heart and let it guide their actions. One thing we’ve got to get straight up front is that we’ve got to start with our own house and our own porch when it comes to getting things straight. Many times if you’re not soberly aware you can find yourself looking through the window at someone else’s problems and hang-ups only to forget that there are many issues everyday that need to be tended to by your own hands, for your own life. Time is precious, yet we all get some to do and become the best we can.Wasted opportunities spent complaining and murmuring earn you absolutely nothing. Try this, I think it will help you keep it all together, (it works for me). Always take the blame for your own misfortune and status. If you did not achieve it or did not accomplish it, it is absoultely positively your fault. The thing is, you can definitely change yourself and change your habits. It causes you to always strive for more and never settle for mediocrity. Give it a shot, and tell me how it works out for you. You’ll find more time left over, and more satisfaction out of the time you spent.
