9 BELIEFS YOU MUST EMBRACE TO SUCCEED IN LIFE
1. Believe in the Forgiveness, Generosity and Love of God; Not a single one of us can take a single breath without it being a gift from God. His benevolence is nearly incomprehensible. Trust in this, it’s for you. As you do, the trajectory of your life will change.
2. Honor God in Every Aspect of Your Life;
Take inventory of your life and make sure it all honors God, even down to your thoughts. Set your mind on what is pure, right and integrity driven. When junk comes your way, reject it. Refuse to have any part of it. This will honor the God who blesses you and will advance your own life. It’s not the things that come at us from the outside that derail our lives, it’s what we allow in and then express outwardly.
3. Honor Others;
Don’t speak ill of others, speak well of them. Don’t bemoan the success of others, celebrate it. Never engage in gossip, it’s still a sin. Rather, honor God by honoring others, and your life will be blessed. If someone’s behavior is something you don’t approve, go to them directly or pray for them, but don’t berate them publicly or with others. Mind this approach to life and God will bless your efforts.
4. Be Honest with Yourself;
If we can’t be honest with ourselves about what we struggle with, we’re not able to be honest with God. And this will make us phony in the eyes of others, delusional in fact. We are all inspired by the person who is authentic in their flaw and humble in their desire and effort to improve.
5. Take Everything to God in Prayer;
No single thing has changed my life more. This includes your dreams, concerns, hopes, even what angers you. God cares what we think, especially as we go to him in faith. After all, we are his children. A good parent always cares what their kids think. I dare you to take all to God in prayer, to keep doing this, and watch your life change.
6. Be Generous to Others;
When God sees us having compassion for and being generous to others, he’ll be generous to us. Enough said.
7. Take Care of Your Body;
The single greatest physical asset you’ll ever own in this life is the body God gave you. So, treat it with utmost care. Pay attention to these four man areas; Diet, Exercise, Water and Sleep. Do this, and you’ll perform at peak levels no matter your age. There are so many things that come and go in our life, but none of them have the affect in terms of loss or gain like our health. You can be successful in every aspect of life, but if your health is failing you, what good is it?
8. Ask God for Healing;
God is a healer. His Word speaks of his desire to heal through out and many Christians today have experienced his healing. Don’t be afraid to ask or believe in his ability to heal. The same Jesus who healed 2000 years ago is the same Jesus today.
9. Make a vow to look to your Savior Christ Jesus everyday this year; Make sure he’s involved in all you do. And he’ll establish your steps and bless your life.
