There are things we all fear, but there are also things specific to each of us, that we fear. For example:

  • fear of failure;
  • fear of growing old;
  • fear of making a fool of yourself;
  • fear of being alone.

Whatever your specific fears, don’t let them overwhelm you! Instead focus on your dreams, and believe you can achieve them. Positive thoughts, make positive results, so be led by the dreams in your heart.

Can you change the way you think? Of course you can!

If you go into a task thinking you can’t do it, you won’t. However, if you go in to every task with a positive attitude, believing you can do it, it increases your chances of success sevenfold.

So change your I can’ts into I cans, and you can achieve so much more!

Be positive! I can’t. I can.

Are you short of self-confidence, or need reassurance that what you’re doing is right?

Do you hate the way you look, and try all sorts of potions and lotions to try to improve your looks?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to either of these questions, you probably will understand why I mean when I say, you can get ‘enemy voices’ in your head telling you you’re not good enough, or not pretty enough. But let me remind you that you are amazing, just the way you are!

That I am amazing, in spite of what I can see
When I look at myself, wishing I could be anyone other than me
‘Cause I was created, with everything I could ever need
So I’m not gonna change, I’m gonna stay
Just the way God made me

It’s Monday, so as we start another week, I urge you to remember that whatever you may have had to deal with last week, is now in the past, and this is now a new week. So whether we had a great week or a rotten week last week, be assured that this is a new week and so we have the opportunity to try again.

Make the most of your second chance, as that can make the difference between this new week being an OK week and a great week.

We are all individuals. We are all unique. We all have different experiences. We all experience emotions when we go through life, however the emotions we feel in each circumstance are individual to us. Therefore just because you know how you feel when you experience a particular situation, doesn’t mean that is how others feel.

Remember we are unique, no-one else know how we truly feel, so don’t ever think you know exactly how someone else feels, unless they tell you!

We can sometimes wonder why God doesn’t always give us what we ask for. But we just need to remind ourselves that in every situation and circumstance, God knows best. He knows exactly what we need and when we need it and will provide it in His time.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NLT)

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

So when you question God’s decisions, remind yourself of the words in this picture, because God knows us better than we know ourselves, so He does know what is best for us, so trust Him.

Sometimes we just need to a reminder of how awesome you are, so here’s your reminder:

So please take those words to heart, and be awesome!

No this blog post has nothing to do with Brexit – which I hope you find reassuring.

Instead it’s about how to improve yourself – As the following words remind us, if we keep on doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome, nothing will change – In other words the outcome will be consistent.

However, if after trying something and finding it doesn’t work, you do something differently the next time, it may work out as you want, but it might now – but even then, you stop and have a rethink before having another go, changing what you’re doing again. and so you carry on like this until you succeed – That is called being persistent, and that is how you can improve yourself, by being persistent.

Have you ever stopped for a minute and wondered, what would I be grateful for next week, next month or next year?

Maybe you haven’t ever wondered that but, I bet you are now!

So today I urge you to not only have a think about what you could do today that will benefit you in the future, but also do it!

Good luck!

Do you believe these words, that you must believe in yourself?

If we don’t believe in ourself, how can we expect anyone else to believe in us? Many may try to tell us that we are not important, that we are worthless, that we can’t achieve anything, but we are important – In fact we are more important than any one else we know, so remember that always!

We can do lots of things in our life, but we can only achieve greatness if we truly believe in ourselves, so believe in yourself, and believe in your importance in this world, because you are important!
