Happy Thursday everyone! ^_^ it's almost the end of week! What plans do you have for the weekend? The rest of summer? I am two night shifts away from vacation! I am ecstatic!
To be honest, I thought I had this weeks blog post all figured out yesterday but at the end of church service last night, it changed.
It seemed like I have been doing a lot of talking lately but equal to little action. I believe I touched on this topic a little bit in my previous posts. To truly evaluate someone accurately, it is better to view their actions rather than their words. It is too easy for people to run their mouths and not follow through with their actions. It seems like people aren't holding them accountable. Politicians do it frequently to get elected and then when they win, it is like they abandon their original action plan.
The great thing about this is that I knew the fault of it and I'm thankful I caught myself. The worst thing about it is that I know of others who don't catch themselves and wonder why they have not progessed from their issues. It's like trying to fix a reoccuring problem with the same tools you tried to fix it with the last time. It is not going to work.
Overnight, I knew I had to do better and I know at the end of the day, I am responsible for me. Today is going to be new start. I can't keep on wasting my precious time on things that won't benefit me or others I care about anymore. My time is essential and valuable and if I waste it now, I will never get it back.
The four areas that my pastor emphasizes he wants us to have success in are: relationships, spiritual, financial, and physical. My goal from now on will be to do at least one thing to improve my success in each of those areas a day. It doesn't matter to me how big or small they are. The key is to keep striving and to not grow stagnant in being comfortable. In order to change, especially for the better, I have to become comfortable in being uncomfortable.
I will give you all an example for now and I will continue to blog on the progress. One area of success I am trying to focus on is financial. I will like to increase my domain in this area to better secure a future for myself and if it is in God's will, my descendants. One way I have learned to get creative with my money is to invest. I have recently invested in a company where I am a independent business owner with hopes of using the business to increase my income. I have spoken to others about it to see if they would like to do so. Some are unsure about it. Others have told me no. But a few are genuinely interested. However, I enjoy it because not only does it give me a process to increase in my financial success, it also gives me a process to increase in my relationship success as well.
I would like to hear from you. Does your life, problem, situation, or issue need a retooled action plan? What steps are you making towards it? What has failed? What has worked?
