The person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: Decisions, decisions, decisions. They are such a big part of our everyday life, and no matter how many times you and I decide to go with the flow and let life “work out,” in the end we all make decisions that will have a lasting impact.
I like today’s thought because, once again, it is a reminder that we all choose our outcome. I know that many will argue with me on that thought because they have bought into the belief that life handed them the deal they have, and they are powerless to get out of the rut they choose to live in.
As you can well imagine, I completely disagree, and I am growing more unwavering on that thought. As I look around and see my friends and clients who wallow in their current misery, I am amazed how they refuse to see the path that led them to this dead end years ago.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
Do not ever stop dreaming, even if you are in a pit. Always remember there is a palace up ahead. Do not get upset and waste energy with people who talk bad about you.
They do not talk about people going nowhere or doing nothing. Whatever hurts you right now will help you in your future if you allow it to. Let your pain have purpose and do not waste it. If circumstances are against you today, do not be afraid.
Joel Osteen in his Daily Devotional message said that you are going to make it without that person that walked away, without that friend that betrayed you, without that spouse that left or that contract that slipped out of your hands.
I know it is painful, but they were not your saviour or salvation. You already have a Saviour. He has you in the palm of His hand. In the face of that opposition, with the winds and the rain coming against you, dare to say, “ I believe what You promised will come to pass.”
Do not let doubt stop your purpose. Do not let that storm talk you out of your destiny. You do not have to see how it is going to happen; all you have to do is believe.
Those who intend on becoming great should love neither themselves nor their own things, but only what is just, whether it happens to be done by themselves or others.
