I hope it helps you as it is helping me!
Today I would like to share on the topic: WINNERS FOCUS ON WINNING!
The journey of life has many travelers. Some may be heading towards the same direction as you whiles others may be going in the opposite direction. Like all journeys, there will be those who started ahead of us, those who started with us and those who started behind us. The most difficult part of our journey is witnessing the success of those who are ahead of us. We see the lifestyle and the perceived joy that they are showcasing and that old negative feeling of envy slowly creeps up and consumes our thoughts. We wonder why we are not in that position. What makes them better than us? And why their lives appear so much better, easier and exciting than the life God has graciously granted us?
If you find yourself in that familiar position today, it is ok. You are not a bad person for feeling that pang of jealousy. You are only human. However, it is important not to remain in that negative place for too long. We are all on our individual journey to greatness. Not all the paths we take will be the same no matter how similar they may initially seem. Doing the same thing that worked so well for those ahead of us will not guarantee success in your own individual situation.
If you are reading this today, understand that you may not be happy about your situation or you may just downright hate everything about where you are at the moment, but remember you are exactly where you are supposed to be and every experience is temporary. The experiences you are going through today will shape your joys of tomorrow. Being negative because of other people’s success will only prevent you from seeing the blessings that God has in store for you today. Your success story is being written right now as you read this. Today’s challenges are what you need to overcome in order to access tomorrow’s blessings. So choose to be determined not to let the success of others interfere with the joy that God has blessed you with today. There is a season for everything and that means, your season of success may be closer than you think.
Be yourself everyone else is taken.
