Putting Your Plan Together!

This week we’ve been talking about seeing and experiencing your perfect day and I thought it would be a good idea to give you a step by step break down on exactly how to do that in a more detailed way than what I have already covered.

“For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace…” -Luke 14:28-33

First – Get A Picture In Your Head! What does your perfect day look like? What are you doing? Who are you talking to? Where are you headed? When do you plan to do what? Where is your motivation coming from? Once you get this picture in your head, the move to the next step.

Second – Break It Down! Let’s say you want to work on yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Let’s take the physical – what does it mean you want to work on the physical? Let’s say you want to lose weight, ok, what will that take? Eating right and exercise! Now break that down by listing the steps you will need to take to make that happen for you. Do the same thing for the mental and spiritual area of your life or any other areas that you feel will help you experience the perfect day.

Third – Limit Yourself! You can’t do it all, so at most focus on what I like to call “Your Big Three”. Three things that if you don’t accomplish anything else, you must do these. Sticking to specific goals and focusing your effort in that direction will help you to find success and victory quicker.

Fourth – Reward Yourself! When you get this right, then make sure to reward yourself, because you are making progress and progress is what life is all about. Rewards encourage, motivate and challenge you to keep on keeping on.

Fifth – Expect Challenges And Setbacks! It is not always going to work the way you plan, because some days you are just not feeling it. The important thing is not to beat up on yourself, but to get back up on the horse and go for it the next day.

Sixth – Make Your List And Check It All Through Out The Day! This is a continual source of motivation that will help you to stay focused on the main thing, because distraction is a very real enemy.

Seventh – Enjoy Your Day! The whole point in planning your day is so you can enjoy it, so make sure that you make and take the time to do just that…

TODAY IS THE DAY!

You have a chance to live a blessed and happy life, a life full of excitement, joy and opportunity. You have a chance to live a life that you can be proud of and the potential to see all of your dreams come true. You just have to allow yourself to awaken to the reality that you are a special creation of God and that He has unlimited possibilities waiting for you to make them reality. You have today and today is enough, if you are brave enough and wise enough to seize it.

Every day you are on your way to becoming the special creation you were created to be. Today you can grow in your potential, realize your hopes, fulfill your wishes and live your dreams. Today is your fresh new opportunity to begin again and if you don’t accomplish it today, then God might just bless you with another day, tomorrow.

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Matthew 6:34

So, while you can’t accomplish everything today, you can begin to head in the right direction today and that will move you one step closer to where you need to be heading. Transformation begins one step and one day at a time. A lot of small step and multiple days add up to move you down the path to achieve meaningful and lasting changes that influence all of your life and potential in a positive way.

Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? How can you make a difference? When will you start? Who’s life will you make better? Why not start right now, right here, today???

You have to see it to believe it! Visualize the answers to the above questions. See the answers as reality in your life and living starting right now, right here, today, in this very moment. Learn from your past, find motivation in your present and grow into your future.

It’s About Time To Stop Wasting Time!

Have you ever stopped to think about how much time we waste on stuff that really does not matter? I call this stuff that we waste our time on the “nonessentials”. This is the stuff that has no eternal significance and no real ultimate meaning. One of my professors in college called it “puff and fluff”.

Think about it for a moment – how much time do you spend on stuff that really does not matter? How much time do you waste being distracted by things that do absolutly nothing for your soul? We allow way to much stuff to come into our lives and eat away at what really matters from the inside-out.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” Ecclesiates 3:1-8

It is past time to begin distancing yourself from the unproductive stuff that wastes your prescious commodity of time. Time is one of those things that we all have a limited supply of. I don’t care how much money you have, you cannot buy anymore time. What you got you got and that’s it!

On one side of tracks of life you have the stuff that does not really matter, the time wasters, life suckers and blessing thieves. On the other side of your life you have the things that do really matter, the blessings, the growth and your purpose. Every moment of everyday you make a decison about which side of the tracks you are going to live on.

Stop letting fear, misunderstanding and negativity keep you from experiencing the strength, growth and positivity you were created for. You were created for this miraculous experience called life, so that you might learn, grow and develop into the amazing creation that you are.

From your Spirit, learn to:

1.) Embrace all that you are and all you were created for.

2.) Enjoy this miraculous experience called life for all it has to offer.

3.) Experience the joy that comes from really living by getting the most out of every moment…
