Hey, get a life! But, make sure it’s a great one.
Each of us has been given the same chance to live life to its fullest. We all have the same 24 hours as any other successful person, but how we handle each moment is what matters. So, if you want to experience a fabulous or fulfilling life, you have to get off your ‘but’ and make it happen (many thanks to Connection Coach Jonathan Sprinkles for that push and be sure to get his book, too.)
Here are four ways to help you on your path to a fabulous life:
- Retrain your brain. As you begin this journey of having a great life, you must first put your thoughts in check. The battle over your destiny begins in your mind, because YOU are your only hold back. If you think wrong, you will only experience wrong things and you’ll be drawn to the wrong people. However, if you think positively, your perception on life will be better and you will find strength to thrive. So, replace every negative thought with an affirmation. Even if you’re experiencing a situation that caught you off guard, view that opposition as an opportunity to learn and grow. I recommend you trust God with every area of your life and renew your mind daily in His word.
- Keep your expectations high. One of the best ways to dispel an environment of doubt is by keeping your expectations of knowing you are going to have a great life. Even if you’ve lost in days past, you are now in a new day filled with new opportunities. So, write out your life goals and pray for God’s guidance. The Bible states in Psalms 37:23 that the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord: and he delightth in his way. Here’s another scripture that helps me stay motivated, especially in the tough times:
Romans 8:28 (KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
- Celebrate small victories. Small rocks make big mountains. So, why wait until the battle is over when you can shout now? Celebrate each moment you defy the urge to quit, because that means you’re moving one step closer to reaching your goals. Keep going!
- Refuse to entertain your fears and negative people. Doubt will stunt your growth and keep you from maximizing your potential. So, you owe it to your destiny and your family to break free from these restraints so you can live a life without limits. Of course, you must use wisdom and not be careless about your life. However, don’t let fear keep you from what God promised you.
Remember, the only one keeping you from experiencing a great life is YOU! So, no more looking at your past and start focusing on your destiny. Jesus Christ, the best life coach, states in John 10:10 that He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Isn’t that awesome?
My friends, don’t settle for an average life, but desire to have the abundant life. This life not only comes with money, but it includes an abundance of peace, love, joy, happiness, and fulfillment. So, don’t just have a great day, but choose to have a great life!
