MAKE A GROWTH COMMITMENT

goalsDo you ever find yourself wishing you were further ahead than where you are right now? Do you have unfulfilled aspirations and goals? I have found that just wishing and hoping things will change is not enough…you must make a commitment to make things change.
CHANGE is not always welcomed with open arms because it requires effort. Many of us grow tired and weary at times because life has a way of heaping more on us than we can bear at times. But still, if our dreams don’t die on the vine, we still have the chance to make them happen. It can happen when we change our “minds” regarding “growth”. Stretch your mind today. Decide in your mind that you will move from this present place and move forward to your desired place. Speak what you want out loud. Write down on paper what you want. Read it out loud. Let yourself hear you speak your aspirations. Once your mind grabs it and accepts it, it will not go backward. You will move forward. Make a commitment to yourself to grow away from yesterday. Today is new and fresh and filled with possibilities. Tomorrow is just out of sight but it is within reach. And if by God’s grace we reach tomorrow, with “growing” as part of our decision, we will be further along than we are now. Commit to growth. It is the best way out of a stagnant place!

I HAVE LEARNED….

We live in a world that is absolutely amazing, lessons all around us.  I have learned so many.  Today I would share with you that I have learned that there is no real pleasing when it comes to people unless it lines up with their set of values and belief system.  Trying to please others in any environment is a waste of time because at best it will be temporary.  One must learn what they stand for and have full conviction about and life that they live, understanding that others may or may not agree.  For those who agree with ones view or perceived view, they will follow as long as it pleases them to do so.  Man will not always follow man.  There comes a time when the difference in thinking and believing shows up and the loyalty disappears.  Simply put….I have learned that no matter what you do or how hard you try, you can not please everyone in a particular group.  You can not make decisions that always pleases the whole.  Mindsets, right or wrong have a way of outweighing good judgement, common sense and even familiar ties.  So to thine own self be true, and be grateful for those who share your time, your sentiments and space.  It may only be for a season.  Rest assured, it will not last.
