I encourage everyone to go see the movie “Brittany runs a marathon”. It’s a good movie to understand how until you change your thinking that your life will stay the same. This movie isn’t just about a you lady running a race. She’s trying to figure out how to get her life together and the race is one of the goals she’s using as a measurement.
Stop blaming other people for things not going right and look deep within yourself. Wake up and decide you are going to be different. You just have to take one small step and that’s enough.
When you feel like your life has been the same for the last year or two it’s because you haven’t let your spirit guide you. You are still letting your own flesh control your life. The flesh only can power what it sees directly in front of it. That’s why every day you do the same routine and if you don’t do it you feel something is wrong. When you start to let your spirit take over it tries to guide you to places you’ve never seen or experienced. This will help get you out of your rut and give you renewed feelings and hope.
Fear is usually the thing that will stop you from doing what you were meant to do. It’s the thing that causes you to make excuses. When time has passed you by and you look back on why you didn’t make a move or a decision it’s usually because you were scared. You have to fight through the fear. Have the faith to see past the things directly in front of you. Be able to see what you have not currently built. Be able to vision the future that you want.
Your flesh is what you have listened to your whole life. It always feels normal to listen to. When your spirit gets to talking it makes you feel uncomfortable because you are trying to figure it if it’s real or a fictional dream. You have to learn to accept what your spirit is trying to offer you. It is the only thing that can guide you to the outcome you desire.
If you are still trying to figure out what you were meant to do don’t worry. It will come to you, you won’t have to try and figure it out. One day you’ll have an urge of something that needs to be completed. Depending upon how you react to it will determine what happens next. If you ignore it the feeling will come back in due time.
Vision is your guide to know where you are going. A true vision will consistently come back to your mind until you start on it. It will not let you escape it because that’s what you were meant to do.
This morning I sat in bed for about 45 minutes. I pictured the millions of blog followers reading the posts on this site. I could see the comments that each user was leaving on each post. I felt the impact the blog was having on each person’s life.
The thing that you desire you must see it in your mind every day. The best times to practice having it is when you are laying in bed right before you get up to start your day. When you first start out you may only be able to do it for two minutes. As you practice more you’ll be able to do it a lot longer.
I had a chance to go to New Orleans this week. We took a tour of Mardi Gras World. The tour guide covered why and how they came up with the Mardi Gras Parade. They don’t show them on t.v. so they can express themselves freely.
The creator had a vision for making floats and now their are multiple parades put on by different crews running for weeks.
You have to have your own vision and act on it.
Simple items can compliment your vision board. Sometimes it’s even easier for your mind to accept one thing at a time.
Here’s a picture of a sign that I received as a gift. I read it every morning. It helps to remind me that my job isn’t about telling people what to do but to guide and inspire them.
