GETTING MOTIVATED






Happy new day!  I pray you are having a wonderful week! There's so much that happens in a day that will try to steal your joy. In addition, the enemy is always looking for direct access into an unguarded part of our lives. A way to guard our lives is with motivation. For me, motivation involves moving with a purpose. ..and purpose comes only from God. In the greatest success book written ever it says, " I knew you even before I formed you in your mother's womb." Therefore, whether your life was planned or not by your parents, God planned it with a purpose. I have found a few simple ways to stay motivated.

Clarity

 A clear goal is a clear path to success.  I remember leading a group many years ago. One day I asked everyone what did they want to accomplish before the end of the year. Honestly,  most of them could not answer that question clearly. I understood a few things in that moment. If only people knew what they truly wanted then maybe they had a shot at achieving it. I also understood that weak goals and desires would never produce strong results.

Write it out

 If you are a consistent reader of my blog then you know I had to mention writing it out. Our chances of success are increased by writing things down. Those words have to be kept in front of your eyes and must be used to motivate and transform you. The same way we use the word of God to transform us in our daily lives.

Alternative

 Last, but definitely not least is to consider the alternative. I mentioned on a previous blog post on eliminating excuses that basically staying motivated requires an alternative way of thinking. For example, if you don't go after your goal or purpose in life then how will life this same time next year look for you. This is not to create fear in yourself because we were not given a spirit of fear. It is the complete opposite! It is to motivate you to live a life of faith and with much purpose!

 As always thank you for reading and I pray you have a wonderful day!
