We must know what we are going after…we cannot live our life meandering around hoping we hit something. And whatever – we hit then we say this is what I was aiming at.
We have to have a direction in life…a specific target in mind. Most people do not succeed because they do not take enough time to research what are they going after. They ask for things and then see if they want it. Nonetheless – be very careful for things you are asking for. Because, if you have asked for something in your life – you might as well would get it. Then, if you have to be very sure if you want to see ‘that’ – something happening to your life.
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING AFTER!
Ask God is it yours? If its not yours then the only reason I see is you want it because #itlooksgood on someone else. You begin to covet what belongs to someone else. Most people wants everything they see somebody else with. They want their clothes …when it doesn’ look good on them. They want to wear the hair style that doesn’ suit them. They take houses they cannot afford. Just so that they may be able to keep up with someone else.
But If you want to be a winner. If you, really want to come out successful. If you really want to shine the brightest – then ONLY go after things which are meant ONLY for you to have. Then you will be successful. And what makes you look bright is when you pick up your own battles. There are things you don’t have to fight because they are not yours to fight. You get into the battle which doesn’ belong to you at all.
You don’ covet someones going up the ladder because they are called in life for that hence, they are making to it by all means. But you might not be gifted at all to fight that area so needless you covet someone else’s battle or success.
COVET – IN ANOTHER WORD IS – ‘ENVY’
Envy is an attitude that one possess about other people’s success. But the only – quickest way to stop being envious about other people’s success is to clearly understand that everything happening to YOU in YOUR life and everything that has happened in your past is only preparing you for your own #DEFININGMOMENTS.
This is a VERY critical issue. Defining moments – are the moments if you can handle them well they are the pivotal points that change your life for lifetime.
Be absolutely very clear in your mind to follow your own direction in life…what are you going after. Run your own race with determination …wake up each morning with an agenda. Invest in life with all your strength. It won’ be long before – that you will stand amazed in the glory of your lifes DEFINING MOMENTS.
