JUNE URGES: Revisit Your Resolution (2)

Published

on

Continuation of Revisit your resolution, part one.

The S.E.L.F reasons that infringes our resolutions.

S= Self-doubt
E= Enormosity (big)
L= Little/no drive
F= Fault finders.

Many a person gets hooked by one or many of these factors above, on the pursuit of their vision. This could keep such an individual spinning the wheels of opportunities repeatedly, but without tangible results.

Self doubt as learnt from Karyl MC Bride , a seasoned psychologist, is different from an “impostor syndrome” or ” low self esteem”

SELF DOUBT IS lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.

Believers (Followers of Christ) have an edge at this juncture, and you may want to ask why,

Well, Check this out please:

1 COR 2:16 says:
…Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ

But we HAVE the MIND of CHRIST

This type of mind is devoid of fear, curruption of the world, pride, e.t.c.

It doesn’t come naturally by birth: but supernaturally by a re-birth.

At every point when the Pharisees come testing JESUS to see whether he will fall by his words, they become disappointed, because he knew the intent of their hearts.

So, you want to enjoy this kind of creative mind? Then you need to be friends with that successful man of Gallilee, JESUS.

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.”

Doubters operate in the realms of luck,
But divine ability (of the mind) operates in the realm of the spirit.

Consequently; Self-doubt breeds excuses.

Surprisingly, failures tend to come with more reasons than successes, these reasons are referred to as “Excuses”

You remember David in the Holy scriptures right? Did you know he could have attributed his failure in the battle against that huge man of Gath (Goliath) to many reasons? In fact, he could have said he was too small, or he was just a shepherd, or he only killed a bear, and not a man in the first place, but he didn’t.

#BOTTOM LINE:

Every great success focuses on an inner ability.

Little wonder, that Great Nurse and Philanthropist, Florence Nightingale said; “I never gave or took an excuse”

Sometime ago, a friend said, you want to be a high achiever? LIVE BEYOND EXCUSES. Its is an element of self doubt!

Self doubt is an anti-resolution spirit.

¤Next up is ENORMORSITY (big, huge, complex…)

While resolutions may be big,
Steps (goals) toward achieving those resolutions should be simple,realistic and uncomplicated.

In fact, When you set a goal, you are working towards something. You can work backwards from where you want to get to and create an action plan of little steps you need to take to get there. This is a much more realistic way of creating the change you want because you’re slowly building yourself up to reach it, SAYS Susanna Halonen.

Its almost getting too bulky,
you dont like that right?, I don’t either, (😁 lafs)

But, believing we are being challenged by some truths entailed herein,
