Pull Up the Weeds

I have been extremely busy and have not been paying attention to my flower bed. Yesterday, I noticed the weeds had gotten out of control! I had to take action!
Even though I was tired, I put on my boots and got in there and pulled up those weeds! I found that some of those weeds were wrapped around the base of the good shrubs and plants; choking them. I thought, “Oh, no you don’t, get outta here!”
I enjoy pulling up weeds! It is symbolic of getting the stuff out of my life that is hindering, dead, stagnant and dull.  When you pull up the weeds in your life, you are giving opportunity for the good things in your life to flourish.
Put on your ‘weed pulling’ boots, get in deep into your life and uproot those weeds, those habits and situations that are lifelessly lingering in your life, causing problems, stunting your growth and choking the good things in your life.

We Are Responsible For What We Allow

Don’t give more than you feel comfortable giving but know that some giving may not feel comfortable, yet necessary. Hence why we ought not allow our feelings to have full control of us. Feelings are fickle. They change like the wind. Feelings can toss us to and fro, if we are not careful. Our feelings will have us all over the place, unfocused and making the wrong decisions. It is important to get our feelings under control. While it is fine to follow your heart – think consciously about what you are doing. While feelings can change frequently – it is important how you feel.

When you have committed yourself; it is assumed that you have counted up the cost of what you are committing yourself to. If you are not ready, then don’t commit. Don’t even go there. Nobody forces you. You choose. Choose not to open the door if you are not ready to walk through it. Don’t be so hasty to make a move because someone else is pushing and prodding you. You’ve got to know what you want; you determine what’s right for you. It is very important to be properly aligned before making any decision. I would like to share with you four thoughts:

1. We are responsible for what we allow. If you don’t want it, stop allowing it in your life. If it is hindering your growth in any way — take some time to reevaluate its purpose in your life. A great question to ask is: Is this helping me be my best?

2. Our feelings can fool us. Get an understanding of why you are feeling a certain way. Deal with it when your mind is steady and alert.

3. Commitment carries responsibility. If you are not ready to be responsible, then don’t commit yourself to anything.

4. You choose. Often, we leave decisions that we should make in the hands of others. It is your life, not anyone else’s.

Many times, in my past, I’ve allowed my feelings to have control over my decisions. I was so inconsistent and did not know my own power. I constantly gave away my power to choose. Once I gained an understanding of myself, I took my power back and began operating my life differently. Now, I clearly understand where the lines are drawn. I know what I am responsible for and what I am not. I committed myself to loving myself and not doing anything to place myself in harm’s way. I realized that nobody forces me to do anything I am not comfortable doing. When I commit, I have counted up the cost of that commitment. I hope this post has encouraged you to do the same.

You CAN accomplish great things

You can accomplish great things; you just have to position yourself for success. Instinctively, you know what’s blocking your path and keeping you behind your bars of fear. I challenge you today to break out of the fear jail and run toward your purpose. You have to decide whether you want to remain stagnant and stuck or shift your stagnancy into success overdrive by making the positive change so that your success can be realized. Your hand is on the gear shift and the choice is yours. The fear that you have must bow down to the purpose within you.

1. Get down in your spirit that you can accomplish great things.

2. Stop telling yourself what you can’t do and do what you can do. The failure is not even trying.

3. Remove the blocks. This could be a person, a place or a thing. If it is in your way, move it.

4. Recognize that you do have a choice; no matter where you find yourself. Choose wisely.

5. Don’t allow fear to trap you in your mind, body or spirit.

6. Fear will keep you from fulfilling your purpose if you allow it to take hold of you and paralyze you.

7. Don’t allow the opinions of others to be the final word for you. Rise above people’s opinions.

Meditate on these seven points and allow them to be your fuel as you SHIFT STAGNANCY TO SUCCESS OVERDRIVE!
