Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4: 6-7 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” ~John 16: 33
The best way to find peace in any situation, is to give it up. Just let go of the thoughts, feelings, frustrations and worries. Nothing you can do will change the situation, so it doesn’t make sense to dwell on it and continue to cause stress for yourself. At the end of the day, what happens in your life is not up to you. As much as we have the freedom of choice, we would all be better off to consult with God and have Him guide our decisions and
If you want to do something good in this life and you believe in the Lord, there’s really no reason why you can’t do it. I think the mistake we make is that we depend on ourselves to achieve the greatest things in life, when God is ready, willing and able to show us the way and see us through. The other mistake we make is that we don’t truly and honestly and fully and whole-heartedly believe. I had to get to some of the lowest points in my life
You would be amazed how a simple change in mindset can change your whole life. I remember when I started my business, I was fresh out of the corporate world and still held onto my ‘professional ways’ which included allowing myself to feel intimidated by my superiors. This carried over into my business as I viewed clients as my bosses who had some power over me. But one day I got tired of it. I got tired of feeling afraid at every client email and phone call, I got tired
It’s easy to become discouraged when you put in hard work every day to achieve your dreams, but sometimes what we consider as hard work, is just the tip of the ice berg of our victory and if you want to achieve all your hearts desires, you just have to keep going. Get up the next day and continue to ‘plant your seeds’ by doing the work you do and then ending the day with the faith that your day is coming when you will reap the harvest and fruits
It’s true when they say that your attitude is the true determinant in how much a situation will affect you. You can choose to be sour about a promotion that you didn’t get, or you can rejoice that you don’t have to put your extra waking hours into a job you probably would not have liked. You can feel heart-broken over a love who rejected you or you can feel good knowing that now your heart and mind are open to receive the love that was truly meant for you.
What are you waiting for to be happy? Whatever you’re waiting for, just stop. Stop waiting and stop letting your happiness be based on external factors, because the moment you let your happiness rely on someone or something else, then you stand the chance of being unhappy. Your happiness is strongly dependent on what you define as happiness, while being cautious not to hang that definition on anything outside of your control. Happiness to me, is doing those things I said I was going to do and looking back at
If you want to be the best at something, you have to be ready, willing and able to make a sacrifice for it. Ask yourself: what are you willing to pay to achieve what you want to achieve? If you want a successful business, how many hours a day are you willing to put in, how much money are you willing to invest, how many sales calls are you ready to make, how many networking events are you able to attend and so on? You set the price of what you
