DOERS?

DOERS?

It takes more than coming up with some great ideas to succeed in life. The land of success is only full of doers.   Edmond Mbiaka

There are some tried and proven ways to get ahead in life and most of them have nothing to do with stealing from our peers, they call for a Doer; a person that gets things done because they are willing to go that extra mile to be successful, and have the ability to relate to others, especially the dreamers that are Forward Thinkers and Inventive. 

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.  (Sarah Ban Breathmach)  Now there is a difference between doers and talkers; doers tend to forever try to reshape the world, but talkers are usually more articulate than doers since all talk and no action is their specialty. 

Those that do, must be creative go-getters, which is a must in order to get their point across or their product to sell, and they have an advantage, God likes a doer, he usually prioritizes those who pray with action?  And we are always in need of prayer; with so many ideas flowing with the help of technology, our heads are truly in the clouds.

FYI: Am not trying to burst your bubble, I just need to tell you the computers in the Cloud is underground.  I know, what a bummer, can we trust anything or anyone, anymore?

Of course not, we are some vain people and that makes it hard for us to step back from our plans or perception of them.  It’s the way we see ourselves that oftentimes won’t allow us to yield to the concepts of others.  It’s sad, but some never get the memo, it seems as if they never understand that at times we need the help to find those missing pieces and we need Jesus Christ to enable us to become truly successful. 

Although it’s hard to pick up another’s cross, it’s the perfect time to be the one that has the ability to jump in at any time and be that person, coupled with the strength to pursue all possibilities that lead to success, and I feel the most important trait of a doer is the ability and the willingness to change if anyone has a better concept than their own.

Taking the High Road is what promotes the success of our endeavors.  Taking the Low Road leads to failure.

So, with Jesus Christ, there is a good probability that you still can end up in charge even when your ideas don’t go as planned; it’s still your idea, just modified.  With hard work and a willingness to work with others may prove your worth simply because you have the ability to go forward; your ideas or not, thereby improving the outcome beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sometimes we have to step back because something is missing (God maybe?) and we have to find him in order to move forward.  But as most know, some people don’t like to participate in anything including prayer, their battle cry is, get out while you can.  A true leader leads when called, and they get things done because they know their day will come.

As a matter of fact, Doers never give up on doing something they believe is worthwhile no matter the circumstances because they are driven.  Some of The most important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying even when there seemed to be no hope at all.  And that’s because they are not easily discouraged, doers understand it’s usually the last key that unlocks the bolt. 

Albert Einstein once stated he wasn’t any smarter than the rest, he just stays with the problem longer.  And just for the record, if your plans are never on point it could be because it’s your plan, not God’s.  From experience, I know it’s best to take whatever it is to The Lord in Prayer; First.

Remember the guy that gave up?  No?  Well don’t worry about it, no one else does either.
But just in case you didn’t know, you don’t have to be that guy because a successful person is a consistent doer who walks in Faith, therefore he has no reason to worry about the outcome of his future?

YOU’RE NOT LUCKY, YOU’RE BLESSED!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

YOU’RE NOT LUCKY, YOU’RE BLESSED!

The dictionary tells us Luck happens without regard to one’s will, intention, or desired results.  That definition sounds like The Grace of God to me, from whom all blessing flow, plus we can’t do anything without him.  (John 15:5 KJV)

I believe What is for you is for you, and as far as Luck is concerned, I believe it’s never Luck or Fate that will Bless you, it’s God and He has given us a wonderful opportunity for whatever.  The thing is, we have to be prepared to act on it.

Often those who choose not to believe in The Spirit, believe everything is a matter of The Luck of the draw.  I call it corruption, because in most cases, in order to get where we want to go it has to be done off the backs of others in this ever-changing World that represent so much injustice.

Listen up, the World may be ever-changing but Jesus Christ remains the same.

It took me years to come to terms about there is nothing unusual about the usual; it’s always something, and that something usually is the Devil, coupled with all we need is just a little luck.  That statement has opened a lot of doors to The Gates of Hell.  We know Satan is trolling for the weak who are depending on Luck to get them through.  Horse races, Vegas, etc.

Nowadays, we had better be willing to take a risk and some unusual steps or we’ll just have to settle for the ordinary, which is leaning to our own understanding.  Most know that is a bad idea and the Bible talks about it being one.  Read it here: Proverbs 3:5 KJV

I have been in situations where Luck wasn’t what I needed; I was in need of something bigger, like Favor from God in the form of Grace.  But, still knowing where our help comes from, often we will still choose luck.  Not me, I choose Jesus Christ while others claim they don’t need Him; they say they have all the luck in the world.  Well, we will see about that, but, with all that luck, I wonder why some are still complaining about everything.

For instance, a friend and I were listening to music when they claimed they were unlucky because they were born without rhythm.  My eyes just rolled back in my head as I smiled because I know if you have a heartbeat you have plenty of rhythms, whether they are irregular, fast or slow, it’s keeping a beat by the Grace of God, not Luck or a one-hit wonder. 

That’s just another reason to think before you speak.

I learned the hard way that I am no different from the masses; There was a time when I thought I was the luckiest person in the world too, but as it turned out, I wasn’t as lucky as I thought when I was diagnosed with 3rd Stage Breast Cancer.  This could have been an unlucky side effect of putting my faith in luck, instead of God.

It didn’t take long when I was battling cancer to know luck couldn’t sustain me.  So I strengthen my personal relationship with Jesus Christ and let go of that unhealthy relationship I had with luck.  See, through prior Christian Education, I knew I had access to The Highest Power there is, not some chance at the Poker Table of Life.  If you know Jesus Christ and he you, you know what am talking about.

No matter the opinions of others, I know one thing that is for sure, and that thing is, it wasn’t luck that saved my life.  It was God’s Grace, and that was all I needed.  Did you know The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck? 

What is for you come from God, not something we did or luck.  Shallow men believe in luck, strong men believe in cause and effect.  As for me, I am trying to get you to understand luck to be Blessings from God, that works best when coupled with preparation and taking advantage of those opportunities while using good strategy and Prayer

Knowledge, not luck, is a powerful tool wherever you get it from, and if it was not for knowledge, I wouldn’t be writing this Testimony.  I may think myself lucky at times but what I know is Am truly blessed.

You’re Not Lucky, You’re Blessed too, and that’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory!

AM DONE WITH RESOLUTIONS!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

AM DONE WITH RESOLUTIONS!

New year. New feels. New breathe. New chances. Same dreams, fresh starts. I dare you to believe in yourself. You deserve all things magic.  Feliz Ano-Novo

Happy New Year to you all, but I just want you to know that Am Done With Resolutions, I think.  Anyway, from now on instead of making unrealistic demands on myself, paired a bunch of promises I can’t keep, I plan to make some changes starting with putting in more than an effort to make a better life for myself and to stop making promises only God can deliver.

At the beginning of each New Year, most make Resolutions with the hope of improving their lives.  That makes sense to me because the New Year is like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written; the bonus is we have 365 new days and nights, coupled with 365 new chances to write that book.  It won’t be as easy as it sounds, especially if you’re still in love with your comfort zone; if so nothing will change.  

Let’s all begin the New Year with thanksgiving in our hearts by starting each day with gratitude.  Let us quit lying to ourselves about the Amma-Gonna’s and create more meaningful connections.  Let us choose to be happy as we focus and meditate on the positive, then believe it all will fall into place.

Let us stick to our goals and Know We can do nothing without God.  John 15:5  KJV   NOTHING!

Yep, from this day forward, Am Done With Resolutions, I’ll be Praying.  YOU?

Dear God, in the name of Jesus I pray to demonstrate in the years to come a healthy respect for the opinions of others while cultivating a stronger connections with You and my peers, to have the presence of mind to know I would be better off walking alone than with a big crowd going in the wrong direction.  Amen!

It’s Something To Think About!

Happy New Year and To God Be The Glory!

BUMP THAT, BE YOURSELF!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

BUMP THAT, BE YOURSELF!

I am a firm believer that our focus determines our reality, and fresh ideas are needed because old ways will not open new doors, so I try to stave off any distractions, knowing if I don’t I may not realize my purpose.

It has been said if life was written in the form of a test most would fail if peeking on someone else paper for answers.  This makes sense to me because common sense tells me everyone would have different questions because everyone‘s life is unique only to them.

You are original; besides, we should learn from our competitors not emulate themBump trying to be someone we’re not.  This is unnatural to our personal DNA; which happens to make us who we are.  Having the inability to be true to ourselves will create unnecessary problems and help to stop us from being who God made us to be…Being confident in yourself is one ingredient needed to meet that goal.

This glorious process called life screams for attention, and it certainly is a journey to be explored one day at a time.  But, in order for us to get a firm grip on who we are, Eleanor Roosevelt tells us: The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences

Eleanor hit the nail on the head but, the clock is ticking, so in reality I would dig a little deeper and take into consideration; Today is the only day we have, so live it like you never have before, because you haven’t, and live it like you never will again because you never will.

Today is your day no matter if you are stupid, dumb, funny or wise, be whoever you are while listening to your heart.  Don’t allow the world to define you.  Here is a little food for thought; You cannot change who you are, only what you do.  Phillip Pullman  Simply put, you don’t have to act like that (a pain in the asset).

Did anyone suggest to you or flat-out tell you-you had to fit in or look a certain way to be accepted?  If so, I am here to tell you that’s not true.  Frankly, that sounds as if someone is saying, I want to clone you into a mini-me.

You doing you according to the Will of God makes you one of the most sought after I want to be just like you persons on the planet.  God already has a plan that includes you being who He made you to be.  Your part is to Praise his name and follow his Commandments.  If you choose to do so, you will find there’s a no better you or place to be, which is another good reason to never stop being yourself.

FYI: Just in case you haven’t noticed; Everyone else has been taken anyway. 

You are a strong and creative person, let no one pressure you into this or that, but, before you make any decisions it’s best to have a Clean Heart.  Just know, What will come out is already there.  Some call it a slip of the tongue, I call it a slip of the Truth by the tongue.  It seems as if as hard as we may try we just can’t hide from ourselves. 

And keep in mind that being a creative you is not as hard as it seems.  The difficulty in being creative lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping the old ones.  John Maynard Keynes.   Perhaps we were built for change; how else can we proceed? 

The day is what we make it, and since we’re still talking about Bump That, Be Yourself, let me double-down on some truths.

It’s okay to be influenced by others just don’t steal their work, and get over those who choose to imitate your style, they are wishing they were just like you.  (I consider imitating me as undercover compliments.)  On top of that, they can never imitate your creativity.  

When it all boils down, whatever way we see ourselves, most still want to look good in their pictures, but hiding within the snapshot is one of the worst things we can do to ourselves.  Without knowing or defining who we are to ourselves make it almost impossible to peak in life.

In fact, Not knowing who we are as individuals, burdens us with low self-esteem and the ability to have proud moments.  So there is no advantage to playing someone else role in life, Bump That, Be Yourself and enjoy the Blessings God saturated only unto you, at birth. 

Just so you know, one way to be the best you, is to take a close look at those you instantly want to avoid..  

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory, and it is in Jesus name that we pray.
