For so long I felt that I was trapped in my life instead of truly living an authentic life. Have you ever felt that way or perhaps you might be feeling that way right now-Stuck in life?. Do you feel that no matter what you do and no matter what you’ve given it never seems to be quite enough or you never seem to make progress? For me it always seemed as if success and prosperity was simply elusive. I could gain momentum and all of a sudden all that could shatter and abruptly come to a screeching halt.
It’s been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Many of us talk about making changes to align with our destiny but we still linger around the rut for too long until it’s too late and we end up depressed and stressed. Today i’ll unearth key principles that can help you discover the missing link to turning your life around. You may be now saying “sign me up for that!” I’m going to give you the tools you need to move forward, to compete with yourself and win. Get used to that statement because you’re the original and as the original you have no competition with who you are, so you might as well compete with your best self and win! The following concepts can mold your path from this moment if you get them to the drill:
- The power of the spoken word: Your destiny does not have to look like your history. Your destiny does not have to be a repeat of your history, and neither does it even have to be a mystery either! We can regain control back when we begin to understand that we’re what we do and say in life and that we’re simply doing it on a continuous basis until our present actually becomes our future. One of the greatest forces in life holding you right now isn’t the economy, inflation or the people around you, the greatest forces holding you back today, right now, are the words that you allow to come out of your own mouth. The word of God in Proverbs 18:21 affirms that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” That means that the words that you’re speaking are put into operation in your own life to bring about good or bad. Words are the most powerful thing on the earth realm. When you speak, you give life to your words- you give them permission to exist!
I want to share a concept with you and I would like you to think about it for a moment. The life that you’re living right now, its partly the result of the words spoken and declared out of your own mouth, just meditate on that for a moment. Because we like to craft excuses as to why things are the way they are. But if you want to discover the abundant life God has for you, you can flip things around and change your world by altering what you speak concerning your self. Well, here is the good news, if you want to see a change in your life you can change the words you speak. Every single day you wake up and you take a breath into your body, it’s a day that you have the power and ability to alter the course of your destiny. Not just for now, but forever! You can forever change the quality of your life- the life that you lead by the words that you speak! Have you ever felt that you were trapped in a cycle and a struggle of lack? Well, you can get over that merry go round of poverty, sickness and depression and you can do it NOW!
“Every word that you speak out of your mouth is framing your life. A frame adds value to a picture or detracts value from it. When you speak you’re framing your world…You may never recall a word, but words have power…words have prophetic implications. Words have presence with no geographical time- space limitations”
When you change your words, you’ll change your life! What i’m sharing it’s not just a theory, this is proven practical system taken directly out of the word of God. This concept flows not only from the Bible but also from the Stoics philosophy, ancient wisdom down to Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill and the great teachers in History. It has the power to transform your life, anyone’s life. It transformed mine! What words are you confessing? Are you always complaining and mulling over your depression, back biting and exclaiming what’s wrong with your health, marriage or career? The tendency is that we tend to think that our words are just sounds-just noise, they’re not! You’ve got to say from today what you mean and mean what you say, because soon you’ll see what you’re confessing right now come to life!
“There is a weird power in a spoken word…And a word carries far- very far – deals destruction through time as the bullets flying through space”
–JOSEPH CONRAD (1857-1924)
- The power of choice: Now listen, success is a choice. It’s a choice to do something. It’s a decision! So if you choose to do nothing, you’ll be successful at that- nothing. But if you choose to take a step in the right direction, you’ll be much closer to achieving your dreams. So, are you ready to take that step? You’ve got to make some key choices. You’ve got to make firm decisions and we do this every single day. Here is the thing, if you fail to make a decision, it’s a decision not to make a decision and you’re making a decision anyway. We don’t have to look for success and expect it to manifest by default instead we can define and we can design our future and you’ve heard me right 🙂
If you keep making the same decisions in your health, marriage, career, finances; guess whats gonna happen- you’re going to have the same outcome! The most important aspect is that we can always overturn the grid and win by choosing different lane today. Most of us think and feel that the code of our live’s is determined by our big decisions; but today i beg to differ. Inasmuch as the big decisions do count, the tiny daily decisions we make everyday add up to the bigger difference in our lives. As I’ve highlighted in my poetry thread “We always choose to choose” ; a decision is all you need to turn your life around.
“Mans power of choice enables him to think like an angel or a devil, a king or a slave. Whatever he chooses, mind will create and manifest”
–Frederick Bailes (1889-1970)
- The power of self acceptance: This is an intriguing topic. I’ve personally found out that in order to become the very best version of yourself, you’ve got to make the commitment to do so. The first step to success requires more than just being around the right people or doing the right things or saying the right things. It requires you to understand yourself. To learn how to make the most of your talents, skills , gifts, abilities, experience, education (and so forth) i could go on and on. But also, you have to be able to break down the barriers between who you pretend to be and who you really are.
