“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.”
“Winners don’t win because they want to win. They win because they MUST WIN!!” ~ Johnny Wimbrey
Have you ever been in a situation that felt like you were between a rock and a hard place? I know I have. There is no comfort whatsoever in that kind of a scenario. It’s like you work as hard as you possibly can to break through your barriers and nothing seems to give nonetheless. When that kind of thing happens you get very demoralized. It’s a really difficult thing to accept.
On the other hand, giving up entirely is the equivalent of committing suicide so you can imagine what you will be going through when you are faced with that kind of a situation. Your decision at that moment determines your destiny.
Develop A Strong WHY
Throughout eternity we learn that man wins because of a reason that is larger than their current circumstances – a nation that fights for its independence, a man that needs to provide for his family, a mother prepared to sacrifice anything for the well being of her children, a broke person that needs to alter the course of their family.
A compelling reason or desire is the starting point for any major accomplishment in life. It is the kind of reason that made Martin Luther King Jnr to sacrifice his own life to ensure a better America and freedom fighters that gave of their lives so that the generations to come would live better lives than they did.
When you have a decision to make it’s either you’re going to do something or you’re not going to do it. The words, “I will try to do it” simply indicate a lack of commitment from the person that says them. It’s hard to count on someone that doesn’t give you a straight answer because you never know what to expect from them. It’s either “YES”or “NO” Even the Bible says, “So then, because you’re lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:16) Being indecisive is a destructive character trait.
You can never amount to anything if you carry on in that way. It’s better to be told, ‘NO’ than misleading yourself to think that you can count on someone. To be someone that can be counted upon to do things builds trust with the people around you. When people can’t count on you they lose trust in you. I once heard that it is better to be trusted than it is to be loved. Choose to be a decisive and dependable person.
All Out Massive Action
Our time on earth is very short because we never know when our lives may just come to an end. Hence, you need to live each day like it was your last and set goals like you are going to live forever. I have found that this approach generates a sense of urgency to take massive action to make my dreams a reality. I’m inspired to make a positive difference in the lives of everyone that comes into my life so I always do the best that I can to add value. Tomorrow may never come so give the world your best while you live. You don’t want to have regrets when you lie on your death bed. According to one wise man, “The greatest tragedy in life is not that we die but it’s what dies inside of us while we live.“
ALL IN! means holding nothing back. It means giving not 99%, but 100%. While your best may not always get you what you want you will have far greater satisfaction in your life than the uncommitted souls that never amount to anything significant in life. When you give the world your best the world returns the favor. Our decisions shape our future; so understand that when you make a decision your path to that destination has already been plotted. Choose to become a decisive person and participate in making your dreams a reality.
Be all you can be!
