At work we have managers or team leaders who are there to guide, direct and teach us.

How about in your life as a whole? Do you know who is leading you?

God is my Lord, and my leader. I hope He is your leader too.

Are you trying to achieve big things?

No matter how big or small the changes you’re trying to make, there’s no point in trying to change lots of things at the same time. If you did that it would just cause chaos, and you wouldn’t know what worked and what didn’t.

So instead start by changing one small thing at a time, then another and another. Before you know it you’ll have made a huge different by making significant changes, one small step at a time.

We set ourselves goals, we set ourselves targets. When you achieve those goals or meet those targets, do you feel a sense of accomplishment?

Before we even set those goals or targets, we need to convince ourselves to actually try! If we have no motivation to try to achieve anything, I can guarantee you’ll fail. So consider what you want to achieve, set realistic goals or targets, and then try to achieve them!

Good luck!

We all prepare for each day in different ways. We also all expect different things from ourselves each day.

Do you push yourself to achieve more each day? Do you push yourself to achieve bigger and better things each day? If not, why not?

No-one else in your life is going to push you to the same extent as you can challenge yourself, so set your targets and push yourself to reach them.

Have you ever wondered how many steps you take each day?

Many of you will know, as these days so many wear devices which count how many steps you take on a daily basis.

What about a different kind of step challenge when you’re struggling, wondering how you’re ever going to achieve something? Try using the following step target, and see how often you can reach your target ‘step’ each day.

Good luck, you can do it!

Captain – a person who is at the head of, or in authority over others; chief; leader.

Even when there is a leader, a captain, in charge it doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly for the team they are in charge of.

When you’re in a war and fighting a battle, and you have God as your captain, there’s no way you are not going to win! ~ Joyce Meyer

For us as Christians, God is our captain. However, even that doesn’t that mean that we won’t have to fight any battles?

Far from it, every day is a battle against evil! But it is a battle we can win if we keep following our captain, God.

When you build something some scratch, whether it be decorating a room, building a wall, writing a book, a computer program or something else, you feel pride in what you’ve built, and probably a little bit protective of it as well.

Likewise, when it’s something we’ve built, we are the ones who know better than anyone else how it was built and how it actually works.

Similarly, when it comes to us, the person who created us, God, knows us far better than anyone else – He knows what makes us happy; He knows what upsets us; He knows what worries us as well as knowing our talents; He knows every little thing about us.

Because God knows us inside out, doesn’t it make sense that we turn to Him for help and guidance, just as we would turn to an instruction manual when we have a problem building something.

Well if you’re reading this, you’ve made it to today!

Have you ever been going through a time when you didn’t think you’d still be here today?

Well, you’ve made it to today because God planned your life that way, and the fact you’re still here suggests He’s still got work for you to do for Him.

Each of us are far from the finished article we want to be, we are still God’s ‘works-in-progress’, so watch this space, our lives are to be continued!

 

Are you a ‘real’ Christian or are you just going through the motions?

If you hold back any part of your life from God, you haven’t given Him your all. So give God your all, your hurts, your heartaches, your memories and dreams, your plans and your desires, but most of all, give Him your heart.

The last couple of days I’ve been talking about the fear of failure that affects so many people. Having talked about why some fear failure, I now want to focus on some possible ways to help overcome a fear of failure.

It’s all about goals and targets!

Start by setting small achievable goals that will help you build your confidence. Having set a goal, start thinking about all the possible outcomes, positive and negative, and rationally consider what may happen, developing contingency plans as you go. As you go through these possible outcomes you’ll hopefully find answers/solutions to all possible negative scenarios, in turn helping you thinking positively.

Repeat these steps by setting another goal, and then another goal. By moving forward slowly and steadily, you’ll begin to overcome your fear of failure.

Good luck!
