Today I would like to share on the topic: NO PRESSURE, NO DIAMONDS!
Change is the hardest thing to accept sometimes. It may seem simple enough, but to carry out an act of change has a lot of implications. No matter what you do in life you will always grow, the process of growth means that you are transforming from the current version of you, into the new improved version of whom you are destined to be.
Every growth process involves change. Change however is not definitive. This means there is a fear of the unknown. This can be a very daunting task indeed. The person you know now has to evolve into the person you want to become in the future. Whether good or bad, you cannot grow without making some sort of compromise to your current state of being. What you are today is a sum total of the experiences you have been through in the past. What you will be tomorrow depends on the change you decide to make in your life today. Do not be afraid of the unknown.
You must learn how to adapt to the direction in which your life is going. Holding on to the old ways of doing things will only produce old results. Understanding that change is needed to facilitate your future plans means, you are committing to the vision God has in store for you and acting on the faith that he will make the necessary changes in your life to see you to that successful goal.
See yourself as a diamond; in order to have the stunning finished product of a diamond it must endure uncomfortable conditions.There must be intense pressure and heat over a prolonged period of time which creates the crystal form of the pure carbon we know as diamonds. Without undergoing this process it is impossible to obtain a diamond.
No matter how deep you are in your negative situation today, no matter what pressures you are going through and no matter what changes are taking place in your life, always remember, just like the diamond, there will come a time for you to shine. The process you are going through is necessary for God’s plan to take shape in your life. Embrace the changes, become the diamond you are destined to be.
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
