“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”
– James 1:2-3
|There are always going to be people who are against you; people are always going to tell you that you are too young, too short, too skinny, too fat, not educated enough, or not the right race. And guess what, those people are never going to go away. But it doesn’t matter because you can do anything you set your mind to. You can do and achieve anything as long as you foster the kind of mind and thinking that results in achievement. Nothing is ever going to be fair, and that stinks, doesn’t it? There are always going to be bullies, there are always going to be bigots, and there are always going to be people that put others down. But there will always be victors who overcome them because instead of blame, they foster thoughts of victory, of life, and of hope. That’s who you are. Don’t let bitterness come in your heart; don’t let blame come in your heart. A successful life is the result of successful thinking.
Give me victory, God. Help me push past the people who are telling me otherwise.
How can you foster thoughts of victory?
