This is a picture of daily life. Often a detour will lead us away fromwhere we thought we were going—onto a totally new road. Or it willdelay our trip because of unforeseen circumstances.You can either enjoy the ride, potholes and all, or get angry andupset—maybe even feel frustrated enough to turn around and go back.
Fear keeps us from our dreams; faith moves us toward them.
Belief can open doors for you that you might not have even knownwere there.
Know what you want and why you want it.
Believe you will then get what you want.
I have to tell you that I’ve had my share of struggles throughout mylife. When I was eighteen years old, I had just begun my test driveand I would encounter many speed bumps along the way. Thesechallenges tested both my goal setting and Positive Mental Attitude(PMA) skills that I’d learned at a very young age, but I also learnedabout stamina and perseverance. I didn’t let anything interfere withmy dream.
You Are In Control
Life can take a lot from you, but it can’t take away yourdreams
You have complete control over your thoughts, attitudes,and actions.
You are the only person who can make you feel depressed or rejected.Only you can tell yourself that you’re worthless. You might hear thesestatements from other people, but
think, say, or do is their opinion, their statement, their action.Only you can tell yourself what you want to feel.
If you want to feel powerful, tell yourself you have power.
If you want to feel successful, start acting the way successfulpeople act.You will have challenges; everyone does. In fact, we create thosechallenges ourselves in order to meet and surmount them. Asmentioned in Proverbs, without grist for the mill, the wheel will notturn!
