Do you like the results you are getting in your family, in your marriage, in your work, in your relationships, in your health?
I want to remind you this morning that there is one person who is responsible for the results in your life, and that one person is YOU. Here are 4 thoughts to help you move from where you are to where you want to be:
1. Your story isn’t over. The current circumstance you find yourself in
is not the end. There is more to your story, but you have to pick up
the pen and keep writing. No matter how devastating a situation may be,
it’s not over. It’s time to write the next chapter. As long as you
have breath, there is hope for a better tomorrow.
When you get in your car today I want you to notice how big your windshield is compared to the rear-view mirror. There is a reason for this. You are meant to spend the majority of your time looking at the road ahead, not the road behind. This is true in your life as well. Keep looking at what’s ahead because you will never move forward in life if you’re constantly looking in the rear-view mirror.
2. Expect the unexpected. Things will happen you don’t expect to happen. Life is full of strange twists and turns and very few (if anyone) gets to the end of their life on the same road they started on when they were in their 20’s.
Be ready for the unexpected and determine now that no matter what happens you will handle it, you will get through it, you will remain optimistic, and above all you will accept responsibility for the final outcome.
3. Let go of what you can’t control. You may find yourself facing one setback after another, but you are still responsible for four things:
- What you think
- What you say
- What you feel
- What you do
Quit spending so much time thinking about what you can’t do, and spend your time and energy focused on what you can do. In every situation you can control what you think, say, feel, and do. Make those four things count!
4. There is possibilities in every problem. Look for them. In the face of adversity, you can always find opportunity.
Take a minute and evaluate where you are today. Be unstoppable as you take responsibility for every part of your life and know that where you are now is not where you have to be in the future. You may not get there as fast as you would like, but if you keep going you will definitely get there.
You were meant to overcome every adversity you face! You’ve got this!
