You likely have some characteristics that make you unusually unusual. But then again, greatness is never normal. Be great!
Everyone has that little something. That something that makes you unique and different. So much of the time, people try to cover up and hide this characteristic from others. You want to fit in and be like everyone else. However, you were created to be different. You were born with a greatness gene, a greatness characteristic that makes you different from everyone else. Don’t hide your uniqueness any longer. Be different, be who you were created to be today. There is greatness inside of you. You are loaded with purpose. There is a reason for you being born. You have a mission, a destiny to accomplish. The very thing you are wanting to change about you could be the one thing that makes you great. You are a difference maker so use what God has given you to make a difference. Don’t ever be ashamed of how you were created, your characteristics were designed just for you. Are you using your greatness characteristics today?

It’s not too late for you and your purpose in life.
Sometimes, it’s easy to look at your circumstances in the natural and think, “I’ve missed my opportunity. I’m too old. It’s too late. I’ve messed up too much.” But with God, there’s always another opportunity. He created you on purpose and for a purpose. He’s the one who placed those dreams and desires on the inside of you. He hasn’t given up on those dreams, and you shouldn’t either! It’s never too late for God, which means it’s never too late for you! I don’t know about you, but I have never heard of a single story where God gave someone a dream and fulfilled it on the same day. No, our lives are designed with seasons and processes to build our faith and prepare us for the next step. It takes faith, it takes obedience, and it takes patience to see God’s promises come to pass. Today, no matter where you are in your journey of faith, just focus on moving forward. God hasn’t given up on you! Trust that He has you in the right place at the right time. Trust that He is working all things together for your good. Trust that new doors are opening. Choose faith and patience, and you will inherit His promises because it’s never too late for you to embrace the good things God has in store for you. Are you ready to get started today?

I believe the best things in life are a result of discipline. When I operate from that perspective, disciplining myself to achieve gets easier.

For some people “discipline” is a bad word. However, without discipline you will never experience the life you desire. You will have momentary pleasure, but you will forfeit lasting fulfillment. When you experience the awesomeness of archiving a goal through discipline, it does get easier to discipline yourself in more areas. There are many people that never make the move to discipline themselves and they never have the life they really desire. Those are the people that go through life complaining and making excuses for not achieving. Be a person of discipline today. Start making conscious decisions that will lead you into a disciplined lifestyle. You will have fun, there is far more fun and enjoyment in a life that is disciplined. There is far less regret. Take your life to another level by being a disciplined guided life. Are you living a disciplined life today?

God’s desire is that we continually progress, that we reach higher heights and go to new levels.
A lot of the time, as soon as we make the decision to step out in faith and obey God, the enemy brings in fear to try to stop us. He’ll bring thoughts like, “What if you fail? What are other people going to think? You don’t have what it takes.” He’ll do his best to use fear to try to convince us to step back and stay where we are. The Bible says that fear is a spirit. It plays on our emotions and holds us back. But the good news is that we have power over fear! Perfect love will kick out all fear. When we receive God’s perfect love, we will have confidence about the future because we know His plans are for our good. I’ve heard it said that fear is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. Understand that fear is a lie. Today, choose to believe God’s Word and receive His love so that you can overcome fear and move forward into the good life He has prepared for you. Are you experiencing the love that kicks out fear today?

I’ve disciplined myself to always see the positive in life. That perspective has become my way of life. Problem comes; then positive perspective follows.
Are you going through a difficult time today? We all experience setbacks and obstacles in this life, but don’t make the mistake of allowing those challenges to change your perspective. You can’t go around thinking that those problems are insurmountable because negative thinking will keep you all messed up. Did you know that when you’re negative, you’re in agreement with the enemy? But when you have a positive attitude, then you’re in agreement with God. Today, instead of going around thinking about your problems, put down those thoughts and start focusing on the fact that God is on your side. Declare today that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Declare that He is fighting your battles. Declare that victory is on its way. Get into agreement with God and pave the way for His supernatural blessing in your life. What is your perspective like today?

Many people today don’t realize that the reason they’re not happy, the reason they’re not enjoying life is simply because they’ve trained their minds in the wrong direction.
They’ve trained their minds to worry. They’ve trained their minds to complain. They’ve trained their minds to see the negative. But just as you can form these negative mindsets, you can retrain your mind according to the truth and form godly mindsets. I believe one of the main keys to retraining your mind and developing a positive attitude is by learning to stay grateful. When you stay grateful, you are focusing on what’s right rather than what’s wrong. The seed of the truth takes root in the good ground of your heart. This doesn’t happen automatically, you have to discipline yourself. You have to make a conscious effort every single day until a good habit is formed. The seeds of discouragement cannot take root in a grateful heart. Neither can bitterness, envy or strife. So today, retrain your mind and be empowered with His strength to overcome in every area of your life. Are you training your mind in the right way today?

Don’t let false humility keep you from sharing your best with the world. You are good enough, you do matter.. Yes you do!
False humility is another form of insecurity. Even when you see the proof of your gift, you still doubt in yourself. You have been blessed with gifts and talents. Don’t ever doubt God’s work in you. He has created you for a reason, for a reason. You have a mission in life. Don’t allow the enemy to steal your destiny because of self-doubt. False humility will rob you of what you are entitled. Go out each day, keep working your process, keep growing and learning. Never stop improving and getting better as a person. Eliminate the doubt from your life completely. Become the person that you are supposed to be. Make a difference in the world around you today. Be the best you that you can be. Don’t stop believing in yourself. Are you ridding yourself of false humility?

So many people today are living with less because they’ve allowed fear to creep in and take root in their lives.
Fear is the greatest weapon the enemy uses to try to hold us back. Fear is not from God. Fear brings torment. It’s designed to paralyze us and keep us from living our destiny. The good news is that God is greater than fear. His power in you is greater than any power that comes against you. But in order to walk in His power, you have to close the door on the enemy. See, the enemy can’t have access to your life unless you open a door and give him access. That’s why we have to be careful about what we watch, what we listen to, what we read, and what we say. When we open ourselves to fear, we give the enemy opportunity. If you’ve allowed fear to steal from you in any area of life, today you can be free — you can be finished with fear. Conquering the enemy starts by making the choice to close the door on fear. Keep focused on your process and don’t ever let fear be your guide. Never let fear be the decision maker in your life. Stand strong today in the truth of your destiny. You are full of destiny, purpose, talent, gifting, and value. Are you closing the door on fear today?

I believe your greatest tool for changing yourself is changing your perspective.

You can’t go around thinking that those problems are insurmountable because negative thinking will keep you in bondage. Did you know that when you’re negative, you’re in agreement with the enemy? But when you have a positive attitude then you’re in agreement with God. When you agree with God, all things are possible. Today, instead of going around thinking about your problems, push away those thoughts and start thinking on the fact that God is on your side. Declare today that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Declare that He is fighting your battles. Declare that victory is on its way.
