Desires

You can feel your negative desires and act on them, or not act on them; your self-control is what distinguishes you from everyone else.

To have the pizza or not to eat the pizza. That is the negative desire I feel right now! Yours maybe the chocolate cake, the affair, the drugs, to gossip and so on. To be an unstoppable Champion you have to be able to be in control of your negative desires. There is a Bible verse that says; God will give you the desires of your heart. I take this to mean that He will place in your heart His desires. There is no desire of God that is negative. So I have to believe that He will give you the self-control to overcome the negative desires that come to us. No Champion gives in to the negative desires. Doesn’t make a person perfect by any means. However, Champions do and don’t do what others aren’t willing to do or give into. This is one of the big reasons there are few relentless people. I believe that you are one of these people; Champion that is. Self-control is a major key to living your purpose filled life. Are you controlling your negative desires today?
