Don’t Panic, Step Back, Gain Clarity & Trust God!!!

In life it is inevitable that difficult and inconvenient situations will arise. Often times we may react instead of thinking things through, seeing the situation as a mountain instead of a molehill. When difficult times happen as they will don’t look so closely at the problem, for every problem God has a solution.

On this journey I have learned that reacting is not always the best choice, I can get angry, yell scream and throw an adult tantrum but the problem will still be there. When you have a problem you want it to go away as quickly as possible. You don’t want to prolong it or cause more problems and the only way to do that is first Don’t Panic! When we Panic our minds are clouded, when we are upset all we are thinking of is the problem that needs solving. Your mind is blocked off to coming up with solutions for the problem. This might sound simple but stay calm and give yourself time to process what you have been presented with.

Once you are cool, your difficult glasses are off and you now see the issue for exactly what it is. You won’t exaggerate or see the issue through a magnifying glass, you see and understand what is happening. Taking a Step Back in all situations is a good thing! Getting too excited about something great or that seems great at the moment may look different later. It works the same when difficulties arise. Stepping Back allows your mind to be clear after you realize the actual size of the issue.

After snapping back into reality and understanding the issue at hand now you can gain Clarity that will help you come up with solutions! Your mind is clear, your thinking is straight and now God can channel solutions for your problem through you! Things you couldn’t have thought of when you were upset will come to you. Lastly Trust God! You can trust that God has not thought of a problem that there is not a solution for! He knows all and provides us with all we need when we need it! He has instilled wisdom in you to handle any and all of life’s situations! Trust God that He will get you through any obstacle that tries to get in your way! The scripture that I love to say when things get difficult for me is “No weapon formed against me will prosper!” Meaning things will try to stop you from getting what God has for you but will not be successful in any and all attempts! So even when things seem unbearable Trust God! He Has Us!

I recently experienced this within my own journey. My cell phone decided to break, not because I dropped it or didn’t take care of it. In great condition it just stopped working, would not even turn on. No big deal right….well the bigger issue was I had a phone interview the next day! Go figure my phone breaks and now I can’t have the phone interview for the job I’ve been praying for! What!?! I did everything I explained to you today. Not only did I have a great interview (went to use the phone in my apartments office), I have a new phone and I have another interview tomorrow! I trusted God and although something so small but so inconvenient came up I have the victory! What God has planned is already a finished product! Nothing and No one can stop what God has for you!!!

Making Executive Decisions For Your Life!

On your journey to receiving all God has for you there are key decisions that have to be made. These key decisions will shape not only how you get to where God wants you to be but also help you to gain wisdom and clarity on your life’s purpose.

“Everything that glitters is not gold,” as the old folks would say. Every opportunity that presents itself may look and sound good but may not be the right opportunity for you. If it doesn’t fall in line with what God has directed you to do or if it strays too far off the path that you are on, it’s probably not the right opportunity. These kind of opportunities may come when you are focused on getting what God says you can have. Saying No in life is just as important as saying Yes! Some things that come to us are not for us. The devil can present what may seem like a great opportunity to distract you from where God is bringing you to. We have to recognize and realize what those opportunities look like so we can carefully weed out what is not for us!

This has recently happened to me, I am currently going through a process that is sending me to the next level in my life. Over the past 5 months or so I have experienced different trails and lessons that has gotten me to the place I am today. If it was not for these specific things happening, some were super awesome, some were not so great, I would not have learned the lessons needed to rise to the next level of my journey. Within this process I have opened my heart to new things, had some great experiences and also rid myself of some things and people. I’ve also had to say No to some opportunities that sounded great! I’ve said Yes to the things God has planted within my heart although some may think I should be doing otherwise. I have chosen to make some sacrifices and be patient so I can get to where God is leading me! It’s definitely not the easiest thing to do but I know it will be worth it!

Anything God has told me to do I am doing it, even if it seems to be difficult or if I can’t see the end result. I know God has never led me wrong and as long as I keep moving forward with my spirit man first I will not be disappointed! And of course because God can’t fail and I’m in partnership with Him neither can I! Continue to make Executive Decisions For Your Life! Don’t be afraid to say No to something that is not particularly in line with your journey! Say Yes to those things that are not only worth your time, skills, gifts and talents but are desires of your heart! God has placed those desires there so you can act on them! Say No to people, things and activities that are not in line with what God has told you to do, things that are wasting your time! Do and participate with people and activities that support your journey to living the life God has designed just for you! Don’t be afraid to step up and make the right decisions for your life! God has given you the wisdom and clarity to do so! God will always be on our sides leading and guiding us, but He gives us everything we need to make the right decisions! Trust in the God that lives inside of you to live your best life! Our choices and Executive Decisions shape our lives! God has entrusted you with this journey so follow your heart, the center of you to get all God has for you!

Let Your Light Shine!!!

Living in a world filled with more negativity than I have ever witnessed in my 31 years of life, I know the importance of promoting positivity. You do not have to be the richest person in the world or even be famous to promote positive vibes, it all starts with you. You can make a difference by smiling while walking down the street, giving some encouraging words or just being in good spirits. Giving off positivity causes you to get positivity back, it brings you closer to living your dreams and also gives you feelings of joy! I personally love to be around others that encourage me and give off good vibes all around them. Positivity can be contagious just like negativity, because I have a choice I am going to choose to LET MY LIGHT SHINE!!!

Being positive is not always easy, but it is worth it. Would you rather feel dark and gloomy all day or joyous and happy? Actions causes feelings, feelings can also cause actions! With so many people focusing on the negativity in their lives the world needs more people to become positive and do great things! Will you be one of those people? I know I will! We all have something special about us, God created us this way! We all have gifts, talents and desires that God places in our hearts. It is up to us to choose to pursue our gifts and use them in a positive way. That is your light! LET IT SHINE!! If you have a gift or talent that you are not pursuing in a positive way you are missing out. You shouldn’t let your light be dimmed or put out because of difficulties in the past or your current dead end job! You have to make executive decisions for your life! Choose to be great!!

When you LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE, you inspire, encourage and help others to find their light! If we can come together, find our lights and what makes us unique in this world we can cause others to do the same! Love and positivity can spread just as quickly as negativity does! But it has to start with us! It cannot start with judging others, or telling people how they can get their lives together! But it begins with one positive person that is SHINING THEIR LIGHT! So let that positive person be you! Live the best life you can live, you only get one! LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE in your life and help others by encouraging them along the way! And watch how your life changes for the better from the inside out! Let’s Win Together!!

Happy Thursday! 🙂

A Prosperous Mindset!

The most important thing that we can control is our thinking. How we think can cause our lives to be the best, set trends, develop great ideas and turn our dreams into reality. The way in which we think should always be positive, forward thinking and dream pursuing. If we allow negativity and the opinions of others to shape our thoughts this can have a great impact on our lives now in the present and the future.

I choose to have a Prosperous Mindset! When people think about prosperity it usually means they are talking about money, but money is not the key to happiness or fulfillment. Yes, we need money to live a prosperous life but it is not the only attribute needed, prosperity is much more than that! In previous blogs I have written about life fulfillment, all the aspects needed to live a full life with no voids. When I think of being prosperous that is what I am thinking of! A life with no voids, fulfilled in every area of my life! Now that is Prosperity! In order for us to achieve living a life of prosperity we  must have a Prosperous Mindset!

As humans thoughts flow through our heads freely by the minute, but we can control what thoughts we dwell on and which ones we choose not to. Life can have it’s difficult moments, we can become angry or sad but even in those moments it is critical to try to think positively. I know from my own experience that no matter how much of a positive person you are foolish people who do foolish things will cross your path. It has happened to me more than you would think. But it is how we handle these situations that allow us to continue to think in a Prosperous way! For example some people may think a bad thought and say to themselves, “What Would Jesus Do?” It is always a good thing to question your bad thoughts. God made us with a conscious, He created us to know what the difference is between right and wrong. This is why if you make a mistake or do something wrong you instantly feel remorse. This is not something that has to be taught, He created us this way. God also created us with the freedom to choose for ourselves! The choice is always ours, so therefore we have the power to change and renew our thinking so that it positively affects our lives!

A saying that we have all heard “Sky Is The Limit” is not just a saying it is a Prosperous Mindset! Your thoughts are where dreams are created, ideas are made and choices are decided. God says we can have what we say and before we say things we definitely think them! So make it a point to pay attention to your thinking and if your mindset is anything other than positive or prosperous you should renew your thinking and watch how your life increases! We naturally attract what we think about! With a Prosperous Mindset your dreams will be your reality!

Happy Thursday! 🙂
