Be secure in who you are so that other folks insecurities don’t bring you down.
When you allow what other people do or say dictate how you act; then they are controlling you. Insecure people are threatened by secure people. With this is mind, you have to be strong enough to not allow others to affect your attitude. I meet with people al the time that are so full of anger and hurt because of what someone else did. However, you can’t allow what others do control how you act. This is why being secure in who you are is so important. When someone leaves you out, doesn’t invite you to a party, talks about you behind your back; you never give it a second thought. You don’t show them that it bothers you, because it doesn’t. You flood them with forgiveness and kindness. You take the noble, the high road and do what’s right, no matter how it feels. Being secure is a must for a person of purpose. I encourage you today to step into your full destiny. Be secure in who you are and work on being who you were created to be. Are you secure in yourself?

We all have insecurities, so we use those insecurities to prevent us from trying because we don’t want to think of the consequences of trying and failing.
Many people feel inadequate to do anything for God. God doesn’t see you as inadequate, He sees you as complete. In the Bible, Gideon was hiding out from his enemies. He was afraid and didn’t feel equipped to do what God called him to do. Gideon was focused on his circumstances and his limitations, but God was focused on what He could do through Gideon. Gideon felt weak, but God saw him as strong. Gideon felt unqualified, but God saw him as ready to do the job. Gideon felt insecure, but God saw him as full of boldness. Sure enough, when Gideon obeyed God, against all odds, he ended in victory! What can God do through you? It isn’t about how qualified you feel. It isn’t about how talented you are; it’s really about how yielded you are. When you obey God, when you trust Him beyond trusting your circumstances, that’s when His power becomes available to you. That’s when He can work through you and bring about greatness in every area of your life. Are you willing to try in spite of your insecurities?

Today remove any and all doubt about yourself.
You are more than able to fulfill your purpose and destiny. I meet with many people that tell me that they don’t think they are good enough or have what it takes to have a destiny. Unfortunately, if you believe that about yourself, you are fulfilling your destiny but not the one that was prepared for you. Today, I want to encourage you to change your belief system about yourself. You are a person of purpose and destiny. God don’t create junk ok. You have what it takes. You are more than good enough to make a difference. Stop thinking anything different. Find the truth about yourself and get going. There is no time for any of us to sit around having a pity party, feeling sorry for ourselves. Have the courage to stand up and be the example of an overcomer, not someone that has been overcome. If you been knocked down, then get back up. It’s time to get moving forward. People are depending on you. You ready to get going today?

Wisdom–genuine truth–holds the key to one’s thinking.
There is something to be said about gaining wisdom. Wisdom isn’t about being smart. There are are plenty of smart people that aren’t wise. However, I would consider people of wisdom are smart. Wisdom is one key ingredient needed to live with purpose. The way you think and how you make decisions are key to living in your purpose. Wisdom will lead you to the truth too. This is very important. Truth, you see, is always true. Controlling what you think on is necessary in living out your destiny. Focus on your quest for truth in your thinking. Your purpose is about truth not facts. As you move closer toward you destiny go after truth. Find the truth about yourself and what you are here to do. Do you have wisdom in your thinking?

In this day and age, our culture has become so accustomed to having constant activity going on — computers, cell phones, television, email, video games.
There’s nothing wrong with that stuff; but sometimes, we have to stop and be still so we can focus on what is more important; your purpose. This is especially true during the difficult times in life. When you are facing a challenge, it’s easy to want to run to a friend or talk about it with a neighbor. But at some point, you have to stop and say, “I have a purpose and a destiny. I will be able to overcome this situation” Remember, most of your battles are mental battles. The people in your life aren’t your enemy, the forces of the mind are. There is a battle going on in your mind and for your mind all the time. It’s important to take time to rest and relax your mind. A tired mind will lead you to make mistakes that you normally wouldn’t make. Are you too busy today?

Expecting to reach your highest goal without a process is wishful thinking.
One key concept I have learned working with National Championship teams is the process. Without a process of excellence and discipline you will never reach your highest purpose in life. Your process is what keeps you centered and focused. It’s not a complicated thing, just the opposite. Your process is to be the simplest thing in your life, however, the most important. I have worked with many people that had great dreams and goals. However, they lacked a process. They would come to me because they never made any significant progress in life. They would get so far ahead and then fall back. Like going around in circles. I call it the Crazy Cycle. Time and time again, lack of a process = lack of progress. I want to encourage you today to develop your process that will lead you toward your goal. You have what it takes, but you still need a process to reach the highest place you were created to reach. If you don’t have a process and not sure what to do, then we should talk. Do you have a process today?

It can take a long time to prepare to change or decide to change or want to change.
Change though happens in a heartbeat. People will tell you that they can’t change. This is not true. People can change, the thing is most of us don’t want to change. The change itself is quick, it’s deciding to change that takes longer. When discussing change I hear more excuses than anything else. Change takes discipline and discipline isn’t fun for most. However, once you learn that changing isn’t as bad as it is made out to be, you will welcome it. Change is growth and growth is necessary to reach your destiny. Make sure you prepare for the change you’re facing and not make snap decisions. However, don’t let the discipline of change stop you. Face change head on and make it work for you rather you working for it. When you accept change then you can become the change that is necessary in the world. Are you ready to make a change today?

By adding value to people’s lives, you can make a difference in the world.
One of the subjects I talk about in detail is adding value to others and making a difference in the world. By adding value to someone you have made a positive contribution into their world. That’s the way that we make a difference in the world; one person at a time. The way to leave your mark, your name, is to add value to other people. By doing so, you make the world a little better place to be. How do we change the world? Once person at a time. You have what it takes to make a difference. Your purpose will take you to your destiny, which is to help others. Never allow your thinking to stop you from helping others. Don’t allow others to limit your thinking. Limit minded people will try to get you to think that you don’t have anything to add. You have plenty to offer. You may have had some bad experiences but doesn’t take away from what you have to offer. Go today and add value to someone. Make their world a better place to live. What do you have to offer?

When I find perspective, I establish power over my current circumstances.
The power of perspective is limitless. You can change your attitude about anything by just changing your perspective. Even how you feel toward yourself. Before making a decision on any situation you are in, look at it from various perspectives. Especially when you are dealing with other people. Look at the issue from their point of view. You will be amazed at what you will discover when you change your perspective. Far too many people go through life without ever changing their perspective. Your destiny depends on you having perspective and not just your own. Although you may not always like what you see from other perspectives. It will be life changing. There is never just one point-of-view, but several. See things from others side of the fence. What is your perspective today?

The highest purpose is the purpose you create with your life and how you use it for others.
When we talk about your purpose in life, it’s so much what you do for yourself, but it’s what you do for others. Your purpose will enable you to serve others. A person that uses their gift for themselves only, is not fulfilling their destiny and purpose for their life. A life of purpose is a life about others. It means focusing your life to making a positive difference in other people’s life. Many people never reach their highest purpose in life because they aren’t servant or others minded. Your highest calling or purpose is about others not yourself. Take inventory of your life today and see if you’re focusing your purpose on yourself or others. Take your life to the next level. There is no greater calling than being a servant leader. Determine how your purpose in life can benefit other people today. Are you focusing your purpose on others today?
