Perception

We each have different experiences, upbringings, and vantage points in life that have molded our current perceptions or realities. Whether they are positive, negative, rational, irrational, right, or wrong our perceptions are real and true to us. By acknowledging our perceptions and reasons why we perceive things a specific way allows us to change skewed, false, self-limiting, and negative perceptions about ourselves. People viewing us through their lenses versus us looking outward or inward can elicit totally different pictures. Possessing erroneous views about ourselves due to people saying mean, untrue, and hurtful things to us as kids or adults can skew our interpretations about ourselves.

We are children of God almighty created in His divine image. God loves you unconditionally no matter what. You cannot earn His wonderful love, forgiveness, and grace. Those blessings are given freely for everyone who decides to receive and believe. Consider getting plugged into a Bible believing church and joining a small Bible study group, which has the power to take a person out of negative environments and into joy-filled positive living.

Becoming engaged with a mastermind group of any kind, especially like-minded individuals, has impactful power to peacefully transform humanity, making an immensely constructive and profound difference in individual’s lives. We can all become anyone and anything we choose through desire, choice, effort, perseverance, self-discipline, passion, and intrinsic drive, more so than extrinsic motivating factors. Let that light inside you brighten peoples’ souls. In all you do today, ask yourself, “Would a successful, kind, empathetic, compassionate, and loving person think, say, or do that?” If not, consider different thoughts, behaviors, strategies, priorities, values, actions, principles, and responses. Live in grace and forgiveness. Embracing the divine encompasses massive responsibility and accountability toward doing what is right, while living a fully abundant fruit-filled life.

Revelation: Self-restraint Sprinkled with Action

“So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves” (Galatians 5:16 NLV). Now, you can live a righteous, self-disciplined, and powerful purpose-driven life with new insights, behaviors, and being hindsight is 20/20. Respect yourself totally, which encompasses mind, spirit, soul, and the beautiful one and only custom made body that is yours. Do not feel misled, guilty or judged due to slip-ups and wrong decision-making. Accepting divine grace and forgiveness covers the mistakes of being human.

Additionally, do not succumb to retail therapy as a futile coping mechanism for temporary fleeting relief because of problems, which only multiplies troubles creating additional feelings of numbness and void. The value of something is relative, although may be directly and individually linked to efficient and effective time given up acquiring it. Each moment before deciding to spend more money than you currently have, think of invaluable time that could be spent with family or working toward goals possessing expansive meaning and purpose, having potential to literally save or positively influence enhancing change in an individual’s priceless, beautiful life.

Growth Mindset

Finding culprits to difficulties via affectionate truthful self-reflection and being vulnerable to honest feedback, combined with forming great questions and harnessing a teachable attitude, inevitably results in acquiring life-transforming solutions. Rid growth-limiting, know-it-all (KIA), nonsensical arrogance. Let’s be prudent by asking oneself superior queries, while refraining from the folly of questioning others’ desires in hopes of finding answers to our own issues, especially when they have not done what we aspire toward. Resolution and personal development are persistent perpetual inside works only we can fix and build. Our problems are not anyone else’s responsibility except ours to own and solve. Choose to act wisely, therefore be wise. Wise plans fused with consistent uncompromising prudent choices yields positive results. It’s a simple, yet profound philosophy. Consider embracing, integrating, and infusing good philosophy into your daily rituals.
