Three reasons why counting your blessings works

Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must count your blessings. There are many reasons why you must count your blessings often, but let us take a look at the following three. 1) You develop a heart of gratitude. Then you count your blessings; you develop a heart of gratitude because it will occur to you immediately that you have something to be thankful for. What a heart of gratitude does for you in that no matter what you have been or is going through you will maintain hope. Consider what this verse says, ”In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 2) You make the most with what you are already having. How will

Why you must count your blessings

Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must count your blessings. Do you know that it is a miracle that you are here in the first place? According to Mel Robbins, “Scientists have estimated the probability of your being born at about one in 400 trillion." Take a minute and wrap this number around your mind if you can. It is unfathomable to me, and I am in awe to be alive. No matter what you have been through is going through and will go through, never forget that it took a miracle for you to be here. Out of all the trillions of possibilities, you and you alone got the honor to be born. You are not the result of some cosmic accident. There is a purpose for why you were created, an

Why you must consider what is at stake

Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must consider what is at stake. Have you taken the time to consider what can be if you reach your full potential? Have you considered how much you can achieve if all the aches and pains you are having right now go away? Have you considered how much you will do if you were in good health? In short, have you considered what is at stake? If you don’t take care of your health, your life is on the line and everything else you were born to accomplish. Do you know the task that is ahead of you? If you know how many people are depending on you and waiting for you to become all you were created to be, you will do something. For example, you will not

Why you need Godly Counsel

Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must choose your counsel meticulously. Whose console are you following? Who are you consulting? Do you living your life based on the dictates of what is, popular, trending, and cool? Are your marching orders from what everybody else is doing? Don’t be deceived; the counsel that you follow will determine the outcome of your life. If you want to reach your full potential and be all you were created to be, it is imperative that you choose your counsel carefully. To have holistic success, I strongly recommend that you consider the following admonition by King David: Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in

Why You MUST Drop Your Baggage

Published on May 14, 2020 Do you want to reach your full potential? Then drop the baggage you are carrying. Without dropping your baggage you will never reach your full potential. The baggage is weighing on you and making it impossible for you to be all you were created to be. Don’t make the mistake of trying to get used to your baggage or to accommodate it. The only way out is to drop the baggage. While it may be a little painful dropping it, the cost of not dropping your baggage is exceptionally high. You don’t want to keep punching below your weight and living a life of mediocrity because of the baggage you are carrying. Nobody is going to drop the baggage for you because they are not the

You Let Go of All Your Baggage

Published on May 13, 2020 Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must drop all the baggage you are carrying! How do you expect to win when you are overloaded with much baggage? While you may pretend all is well, you know the internal battles and frustrations that confront you daily. You have successfully masked what is going and project to the world that all is well. But in your heart, you know that all is not well. There are different baggages that we collect as we go through life, and at times, we find solace in these baggages. The solace comes from the ability to use some of these baggages as scapegoats for justifying why were are where we are. It becomes easier and comforting

You MUST begin small

Published on May 12, 2020 Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must have to begin small! Learn from the seeds around you that grow into giant trees. I hear the mustard seed is one of the smallest, yet it grows into a giant tree. There is tremendous and infinite potential in you, but it will only be maximized if you begin small. Nobody ever takes more than one step at a time. You have to take that first step; then, you can accelerate your speed. Before the acceleration, you must take the first small step. All of us started small and grow to the size we are today through a process of cell division. The miracle is in the consistency and persistence of the process. The two cells st

The beginning is a MUST!

Published on May 11, 2020 The beginning is a MUST! Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must have begun! You must take the first step if you are going to reach your final destination. Without beginning, it is impossible to reach the end. Unfortunately, some are under the illusion that they can just get to the end with any beginning. These are those who are more concerned about the fruit and the harvest without thinking about the planting. How can you harvest without planting? Is this not tantamount to stealing? No matter how great your ideas are and how through your analysis and strategy is, if you don’t begin that journey of a thousand miles with the first step, you will never

An Abundance Mindset is a MUST

Published on May 9, 2020 Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must have an abundance mindset. You must believe that you have all that is going to take you from where you are to your final destination. An abundance mindset understands that nobody has to be put down for others to go up. When you have an abundance mindset, you know it is always a win-win for all. Therefore, you do not desire others to lose for you to win. An abundance mindset is the best medicine for envy, jealousy, and self-pity. This implies that you don’t think that others are better or superior to you. They are different and unique because their purpose in life reflects that. When you are operating in an abund

Adjustments MUST be made!

Published on May 7, 2020 You must make adjustments if you want to reach your full potential. After you discover the great potential that is already in you, it will occur to you that your life has meaning and purpose. The other thing that will stand out to you is the fact that you are not just going through life aimlessly without direction and a destination in mind. To him, that more is given more is expected, that is why the higher the potential in you, the bigger the dreams that accompany it. The potential in all of us sit not a means to an end; it is empowerment to render goods and services to meet needs for other people. But you will have to make adjustments to move from where you are rig

Appreciation is a MUST!

Published on May 6, 2020 To use what you are already having, you must appreciate it. Without appreciation, neglect with set in and depreciation and eventual decay will be the ultimate result. All of us are born with great potential, including you. Even when you don’t feel that you have what it takes, it does not change the fact that you have fully loaded. Until you wake up to this reality, you will continue punching below your belt. You will never reach the full potential that you were created for. Focusing on yourself and avoiding distractions from what other people are doing will keep you on the right path. Unfortunately, many fall prey to the desire for quick results that appear to circum

If you want to keep growing, you have to get agitated

You need to get agitated once in a while. Don’t be afraid or run away from agitation that comes in your life. Without agitation, you will become stagnant and stop growing. Those who continue growing embrace change and get out of their comfort zone. This requires taking risks and putting yourself in unpleasant situations. Imagine a baby in the womb that refuses to get out after nine months of gestation because the baby likes the comfort, security, and predictability in the womb. We all know that that baby will die. But when the baby feels the agitation of a womb that is getting smaller and smaller for it, the baby jumps out. If you want to keep growing, you have to get agitated. For you to re

Your companions will make or break you

Do you want to reach your full potential? Then you must choose your companions carefully. It is in your best interest to make sure that those you bring in your inner circle are carefully selected. Don’t hang around with just anybody because those you hang around with will determine the outcome of your life. This is because you are being influenced, directly, and indirectly by those closest to you. For the sake of the great potential in you, it is imperative that you select your companions diligently. Here is what King Solomon says concerning this matter: He who walks with the wise will become wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20 Do you want to be wise? Then hang

To Be Successful You MUST Control Your Appetites

You MUST control your appetites if you want to reach your full potential. You are already endowed with great potential. That said, you have some work to do in deploying and deploying the great potential that is already in you. But you have to watch out for distractions, and obstacles, especially your appetites. One of your most significant challenges is going to be your appetites, and if you don’t learn how to control them, you will fail. This is such a severe issue that King Solomon had this to say about it: And put a knife to your throat If you are a man given to appetite. Proverbs 23:2 He is calling for a drastic measure because he understands what is at stake. Your life is at stake. Unfo

Accountability is a MUST have!

Accountability is not an option; it is a MUST have. Without accountability, you will fail. Let me say that again, if you are not accountable, you will not go far. Do you think professionals who are already at the top of their act hire coaches because they are crazy? These successful, highly gifted, and masters of their craft understand what many amateurs don’t, the power of accountability. Without being held accountable by other people and yourself, you will fail. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be massively successful without accountability. The reason is that discouragement, failure, self-doubt, and self-sabotage will hit you sooner or later. What will you do when you get up in the morning, and you do

How can bloody Friday be Good Friday?

When I was a little kid, I had a hard time understanding the whole meaning of Good Friday. How can the “untimely death “of a 33 years old man on a bloody Roman cross be a good thing? How can dying be good? How can defeat be a good thing? What good can come out of false accusations, jealousy, and hatred? These and many other questions plagued me as a kid. Good Friday cannot be good! The unjust condemnation of an innocent man by one of the greatest “kangaroo courts” on the face of the earth on trumped-up charges by zealous men with wicked intent; for selfish gain. The man under trial was betrayed by one of his close confidants; who sold him for money. After spending three and a half years with

You can make a difference

Published on April 7, 2020 You may feel incapacitated because of the enormity of the misery and suffering in the world. Like most of us, you don't think that there is much that you can do to make a difference. There is a part of you that wants to do something, but you don't know where to start because of the enormity of the problem and the potential of being defrauded of your hard-earned money. The question that most people ask is, "how am I sure my money will get to those who are in dire need of it?" This is a legitimate question that MUST be asked by anybody who wants to make a difference in the lives of others. Because it is a waste of time and resources to give your precious resources to

This is how you defeat Racism

Published on January 31, 2020 This is how you defeat Racism you refuse to accept the narrative of other people concerning you. It is also important that you treat everybody with respect and dignity because we are all created in the image and likeness of God. Unfortunately: It is sad that many people are allowing the ignorance of other people to influence how they view themselves and what they believe about themselves. Let God be true and let any other person be wrong. It is written you are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that you are the apple of God’s eye and was created in God’s image and likeness. If you believe this, then racism will bow at your feet. Click on the link below for the

What is Racism?

According to the English Oxford Living Dictionaries, racism is defined as “Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s race is superior.” As you can see, the standard dictionary definition of racism is making the assumption that humans are divided into different races. Because of that, some people may feel that their own race is superior to other races. It is strange that people have a need to feel superior to others. According to this definition, racism is based on a “belief that one’s race is superior.” Where does this belief in superiority come from? What is this belief based on? The short answer is that the belief i

How badly do you want it?

This morning, I got up to the sound of raining falling on my roof. This was not the music I wanted to hear so early in the morning. A part of me immediately freaked out. This is the pleasure-seeking part. That part of me that does not want any discomfort. It is the part that is afraid to get wet in the morning and would rather sleep in. I had an internal dialogue about what course of action to take. It was dark, wet and cold outside and the rain was still falling. As all these thoughts were running through my mind, we gathered for our morning devotion and read this proverb: He who loves pleasure will be a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not be rich. Proverb 21:17 The pleasure-seekin
