With my hands outstretched, I began to look up towards the greater power than myself. I call Him Abba Father. At times I call Him my daddy, but most of all, I call Him my Heavenly Father.
Although I knew before hand what I was about to confess was no secret to Him, deep within me, I just needed to hear His reassuring and comforting voice to let me know that it was okay and that I was going to make it in spite of the limitations and challenges that I was faced with.
This is what was whispered back to me.
‘You are destined to win! You will succeed in life! There will be road blocks, and obstacles will come, but it’s possible that you are going to make it! Keep pressing your way forward, have faith in God, your dream will come true.’
I became even more ‘fired up’ of the promise and the prospect of what was awaiting ahead for me as I began to listen to this motivational speech by the great Les Brown.
Here is what he said:
Here are some key takeaways
“If you are going through hard times, it has not come to stay, it has come to pass!” ~ Les Brown
No matter what, have faith
We must have faith to believe that we already have whatever it is that we envision for ourselves in life. It is that kind of faith that will cause you and I to rise up from the hard times and begin to call things that have not yet come into existence as if they already did. (Romans 4:17) Believe that there is a higher power who already know that our outcome is going to be successful.
Too many are looking for instant gratification but know that not everything is going to happen the same time we want it to. Everything takes time. Still we must not give in or quit. It will happen. Remain patient while we learn the many facet in life, and even learn about ourselves and others.
Your actions must be consistent
Every day we must do something that will move us forward in the direction of our goals. Our consistent actions must also be positive and be in harmony with our thoughts.
Believe in yourself
We must believe that our dreams, ideas, our goals are possible and also believe that we have what it takes to make them work in our favor. Write down each goal, surround ourselves with people that are supportive and be ready to take personal responsibility to make it happen.
