If anyone tells you’re they’re fun, don’t believe them!
I bet you’ve guessed that I’m on deadline. What I bet you don’t know is that I’m always on deadline. Something is always due, and if you’re a teacher or a working mother or a writer with a full-time job or just a very busy person, I’m sure you understand. To keep my sanity, I maintain a calendar in Outlook to manage my deadlines. I’m due date driven so seeing that task list helps keep me focused.
I read something on Tyler Perry’s web page (by the way, House of Payne was kicking this week) that’s been sticking with me as I work through all my task list. It’s something we all know, but it’s nice to be reminded. Here it is for you to ponder:
. . .we as human beings almost always sabotage our own success.
There are many reasons why we do this but the main reason that I used to do it and so many of us still do it is because we don’t feel that we deserve good things to happen to us. Be it because of what we were told as children or what someone may have done to us, even as of late. . .
. . .if you are the type of person that gets close but never makes it in, what that tells me is that you have the faith to get to the door, but not enough to open it. There are different levels of faith. One can take you to the door. Then you need faith to open it. A lot of times fear will keep you from opening it, because a lot of us are afraid of change. Then you need faith to go through the door. This is the biggest part because it means you have to conquer the unknown. This kind of faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Let’s walk through the door, y’all.
