I looked up and saw a duplication of my dream and had the breath knocked out of me... Not only this, but the year was almost over and I had so many goals I had listed on my 2016 list and to only have gotten through half of them; I felt defeated.
I immediately began beating myself up for days of slackage... days I did not make any strides but stayed in place. Days I didn't write, days I didn't make it to the gym, days I didn't network, or days of not listening!
I was pissed at the weight I was still carrying! Contemplating on just getting the fat sucked out like the celebs! Knowing dang on well I need my coins and what satisfaction would I get from laying on a table? I mean let's be real, I would be ok with the results! However, there is a sense of accomplishment you receive when you get out the bed and hit the gym! Or turn down that chocolate cake (God knows I love chocolate cake).
I was irritated that someone else was starting a business similar to mine! I can't even explain the feeling that comes along with that!
As I was riding in the car with tears in my eyes, I was quickly reminded of the many accomplishments and strides I actually did make this year!!! But immediately rebuked for not listening when instructions were given! Don't miss your time and your grace by second guessing the voice... I am guilty of this! When you feel a press you need to seek God for confirmation and no matter how crazy it may seem. Jump!
So I say all of that to say, while I had not completed my 2016 list I had definitely put a dent in it! The year is not over with... and there is still breath in my body! Any thing is possible and I have to keep reminding myself that "what God has for me, is for me". I will listen, like a player waiting to be told to check into the game. The next time he speaks, I will move!
Keep encouraging yourself! We think because we declare something over our lives one time that it should be! That it should change our mindset immediately... No! You have to keep declaring daily!
•I am on top and all things are under my feet
•what God has for me is for me
•I am successful and prosperous!
•I am operating in the most updated version of myself!
•I refuse to accept mediocre in my life!
Renew your mind daily and don't allow circumstances, people or things to take you off course!
Remember, People throw rocks in glass houses everyday!
Be encouraged and keep moving your feet, one day you gone look up at be in the end zone!
My writing style is strong enough for a man but balanced for a woman!
