How To Use Bad Family Reunions For Motivation
Sometimes when I come back from family reunions…I feel, well, sad. Oh, I love my family…. it’s just that I want so much more for them.
From year to year, not much changes for folks.
They are still “broke, busted and disgusted” and talking junk.
It’s good to see them – but I really want to jump up on the
table and yell: WAKE UP!!!! GET OUT OF YOUR BOX!
This is what I would say, if they would receive it:
Do your utmost. Strive for excellence. Make a difference.
But first you got to get out of the box and stop trying to put folks in one!
It’s time for a break out!
Here are some box-breaking-out strategies:
1.) TAKE RISKS. Get out of that “comfort zone”. Don’t be so afraid of making errors that you never try anything new. As the old goes, “I’d rather try and fail than never have tried at all.” Don’t settle for less that God’s best.
2.) BE BOLD. God has a good plan for your life (Jerm. 29:11). Place confidence in Him. First have faith then take that leap!
Believing and trusting God is the foundation to knowing you are more than a conqueror and you can do all things through Christ. We all learned the Sunday school lesson, now it’s time to get UP and live up. What are we afraid of?
3.) BE ORIGINAL. Don’t follow the crowd; follow your heart. Your creative energy comes from Creator. Honor God. Turn off the TV and be still. Read a book. Pay attention.
God is trying to give you divine ideas and strategies to think out the box and stop this “boxed in living.”
No matter what is boxing us in, the key to freedom is living your dreams. At the very least, dream some dreams!
We were created to live an abundant life, not mediocre, comatose, bitter ones.
There are valuable treasures inside each of us. Genius potential. It’s all inside.
Now, go open up your “box” and Go get it!
