Productive

One key to staying passionate about life is to simply stay productive.

You have to have a reason to get out of bed every morning. You have to keep your goals out in front of you. You may retire from the job, but don’t ever retire from life. You have to choose to keep your mind active, keep growing, keep learning and keep helping others. You have to find a way to stay productive. When you stop producing, you stop growing and thriving. God promises that if we’ll keep Him first place, He will give us a long, satisfied life. You may say, “How long is a long life?” Until you’re satisfied. If you quit producing at fifty and you’re satisfied, then the promise is fulfilled. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got too much in me to stop right now. I’m not satisfied. I’ve got dreams that haven’t come to pass. I’ve got motivational talks I haven’t given. I’ve got a family to enjoy. I’ve got grandchildren I haven’t seen yet.mToday, get a vision for your future. Get a vision for staying productive. Expect to be fulfilled, expect to live a satisfied life, and expect to embrace all the good things God has in store for you. Are you staying productive?

Success Syndrome

You shouldn’t be satisfied with success–someone is always waiting to challenge that success.

Never get to a place where you are too comfortable. The only place you should be comfortable is in being uncomfortable. When you are living your life on purpose and making a difference in others lives; you will have success. When you add value to other people; success will come to you. However, never get too comfortable with your success because someone is always wanting to challenge you. Working with National Championship athletes in several sports this has never been more true. I not only express to them not to be satisfied in what they have done both in their sport but in their life. It’s easy at times to think we have arrived and stop pressing. That is when we get knocked off by our challengers. Keep pressing toward your goals. “Don’t stop til the whistle blows twice.” Keep focused on whatever it is you are doing in life. When success comes don’t let up. You are adding value and making a difference. Stay sharp and may the force be with you. Are you avoiding the satisfied success syndrome?

See a Lot

Focus is an ability to zero in on what’s important and being able to avoid distractions to complete the task.

There are so many distractions coming at you today. Technology is a major distraction, maybe more than it’s a help at times. However, you have to be able to set your focus on what is important and not let distractions distract you. See a little; see a lot, see a lot; see a little. That means, the smaller you can focus, the more you see. When you focus in a one small detail, you see the whole picture more clearly. When you try to focus on the whole picture at once you miss the details. Get zeroed in on the task at hand today. Develop a mindset that nothing is going to distract you from being focused. Focusing is just like anything else, it takes practice to sharpen the skill. Know the task you need to finish, see the finish and then complete the task. You can do this, I believe in you and what is inside you. You have the ability and the desire. Are you seeing a little seeing a lot today?

Your Focus

Balance is a crucial element in the art of maintaining focus.

In life, it’s easy to get so focused on our dreams and goals, the things we want, that it consumes us. We can get to the point where we’re not happy, and we’re not going to be happy until it happens. But I’ve found that if we have to have something in order to be happy, our lives are out of balance. When our goals and dreams start to frustrate us, and we lose our peace and we’re not enjoying life, that’s a sure sign that we’re holding on too tightly. What’s the solution? You’ve got to release it. Freedom comes when you say, “God, I’m turning it all over to You. You know my desires, and You know what’s best for me. I’m choosing to trust You and Your timing.” When we learn to be content whatever the circumstances, the power of the enemy is broken. It takes away his ability to frustrate us. Not only that, but by our actions we are showing our faith in God. When you choose to trust in His timing, you can live in peace, you can live in joy, and you can rest in Him, knowing that He has good things in store for your future. Are you balanced in your focus?

Love Walk

One thing that knowledge and experience have helped me with is determining what is worth focusing on.

So often, it’s easy to get caught up in our to-do lists of life. You might even have a spiritual checklist in your mind of all the things you think you need to do in order to please God. And we should have the desire to please Him and follow His commands, but pleasing Him starts with our heart condition. Scripture tells us in 1 Corinthians that only faith, hope and love will last into eternity. We can’t have faith unless we first have hope, and our faith won’t work without love. The point is that we have to remember to adjust our focus and make sure that we aren’t just going through the motions in our spiritual walk. We can do a lot of “good” things, too. But if we don’t have love, they won’t matter in eternity. We can have a lot of knowledge, but if we don’t have love, it won’t do us any good. However, when love is the foundation for everything we do, it honors God and opens the door for the life of victory in blessing He has prepared for you. Are you focusing on your love walk today?

Pressure

Use pressure to lift you up rather than push you down.

In sports, just as in life, we talk about how to deal with pressure. Pressure in the context of it pushing you down, being a weight on you, causing you to fail. However, there is a different aspect of pressure. Why not use pressure to lift you up? Like helium in a balloon. Take the pressure that is attempting to push you down and allow it push you higher. Pressure situations then will take you toward your goal. Use the pressure of the moment to cause the law of lift to come into affect. With this being the case pressure is your friend. If you are in a situation today and you start feeling that pressure that causes you to sweat, throat go dry, and nervousness, then take that pressure and use it to your benefit. Pressure you see can be your difference maker if you let it. Are you using pressure to your benefit?

Distractions

The ability to eliminate distractions and focus is not easy but will help you get better at everything you do.

So many people today find themselves caught up in the day-to-day busyness of life, driven to do more in less time. It seems people constantly strive to find ways to cram more into their already overcrowded schedules. But at the same time, God is constantly inviting us to step away from the hectic pace of life and come to Him to find rest. He invites us to be still before Him, to get quiet so we can hear His voice and set our hearts and minds at peace. Every day, you should take time to read and meditate on God’s promises. Make it a point to spend time with God throughout the day. When you get quiet, say, “God, I love You, today. Lord, thank You for my life, my family, my dreams.” That’s what is going to keep you strong. That’s what’s going to keep you moving forward in the right direction. Today, make it a point to be still before God. Quiet your mind of all the things on your agenda and just focus on Him. Let Him love you, let Him speak to your heart, and let Him fill you with peace and strength each and every day. Are you eliminating distractions in your life?

People Pleaser

In life, there will always be people who try to squeeze you into their mold; people who try to pressure you into being who they want you to be.

They may be good people. They may mean well. But the problem is that they aren’t your creator. They didn’t breathe life into you. They didn’t equip you, empower you or anoint you; God did! If you’re going to be all that God created you to be, you can’t focus on what everybody else thinks. If you change with every criticism, trying to win the favor of others, then you’ll go through life being manipulated and letting people squeeze you into their box. You have to realize that you can’t keep every person happy. You can’t make everyone like you. You’ll never win over all of your critics. Instead of trying to please people, when you get up in the morning, ask the Lord to search your heart. Ask Him if your ways are pleasing to Him. Stay focused on your goals. If people don’t understand you, that’s okay. If you lose some friends because you wouldn’t let them control you, they weren’t true friends anyway. You don’t need other’s approval; you only need God’s approval. Keep your heart and mind submitted to Him and be free from people pleasing. Are you avoiding people pleasing?

Keeping Balance

In life, you must keep a balance, continue to do your best, and avoid being overly affected by the situation.

Sometimes it’s easy to get so focused on our dreams and goals that we tune out everything else. We can get to the point where we’re not going to be happy until we see those things happen. But I’ve found that if we have to have something in order to be happy, our lives are out of balance. When our goals and dreams start to frustrate us; when we lose our peace and don’t enjoy life, that’s a clear sign that we’re holding on too tightly. What’s the solution? You’ve got to release it. Freedom comes when you say, “God, I’m turning it all over to You. You know my desires and what’s best for me. I’m choosing to trust You and trust Your timing.” When we learn to be content whatever the circumstances, it takes away the power of the enemy. It takes away his ability to frustrate us. Not only that, but by our actions we are showing our determination. When you choose to trust in God’s timing, you can live in peace, you can live in joy, and you can rest in Him knowing that He has good things in store for your future. Today, find freedom in contentment and rest in His everlasting peace. Are you living in balance today?
