Why don’t you start believing that no matter what you have or haven’t done, that your best days are still out in front of you.
You can change your world by changing your words… Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.
People respond when you tell them there is a great future in front of you, you can leave your past behind.
When you go through enough dark places, you don’t complain about little things. You don’t lose your joy because you got stuck in traffic; you don’t get offended because a coworker was rude to you. You’ve been through too much to let that sour you.
Don’t waste your energy trying to convince people to understand you. Your time is too valuable to try to prove yourself to people.
Make the decision and say, “I’m not letting that worry in. I’m done being upset when my plans don’t work out. I’m not letting that stress in.” Negative thoughts will still come to your mind, but you don’t have to let them into your spirit.
Encouragement to others is something everyone can give. Somebody needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows?
There is a winner in you. You were created to be successful, to accomplish your goals, to leave your mark on this generation. You have greatness in you. The key is to get it out.
It’s easy to get negative because you get beat down. You go through a few disappointments and it’s easy to stay in that negative frame of mind. Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliche, but your attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.
There may be times when you just have to love people from a distance.
You’re not really free until you’re free from trying to please everybody.
Don’t settle in the land of barely enough. That is where you are, it is not who you are. That’s your location, it’s not your identity. No matter what it looks like, have an abundant mentality.
Hard times may have held you down, but they will not last forever. When all is said and done, you will be better off than before.
No matter how dark and gloomy it looks in your life right now, if you’ll release the weight of those burdens, you will see the sun break forth.
You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.
Keep in mind, hurting people often hurt other people as a result of their own pain. If somebody is rude and inconsiderate, you can almost be certain that they have some unresolved issues inside. They have some major problems, anger, resentment, or some heartache they are trying to cope with or overcome. The last thing they need is for you to make matters worse by responding angrily.
If one dream dies, dream another dream. If you get knocked down, get back up and go again.
Friend, there’s no greater investment in life than in being a people builder. Relationships are more important than our accomplishments.
Quit worrying about how everything is going to turn out. Live one day at a time; better yet, make the most of this moment. It’s good to have a big – picture outlook, to set goals, to establish budgets and make plans, but if you’re always living in the future, you’re never really enjoying the present in the way God wants you to.
You were not created to just get by with an average, unrewarding, or unfulfilling life. God created you to leave your mark on this generation.
The question is not, ‘Do you have a problem?’ The question is, ‘Does the problem have you?’
Don’t just accept whatever comes your way in life. You were born to win; you were born for greatness; you were created to be a champion in life.
Keep in mind, just because you don’t know the answer doesn’t mean that one does not exist. You simply haven’t discovered it yet.
