It’s so easy to have things that are trying to pull us down, like someone offending us or we went through a disappointment or we made a mistake and we’re mad at ourselves and just about everything that will degrade, demotivate and well, make us fall. It’s part of the ups and downs we’ve got to face. We can’t run away from it because God loves us to put us to the test – only to make us better. Not forgetting how He will NEVER burden us beyond our capabilities!
It’s good to know that some of us will stand by what we feel or say or do that no matter what other’s have got to say we’ll still stand strong but there also comes a time where we’ve got to sit and reflect to what’s happening around us and start questioning ;
WHY it happened,
WHERE did we go wrong,
HOW can we improve,
WHEN should we start.
Because we’re not right all the time and we can’t be wrong all the time either. We’re all humans and we all makes mistakes and people will try to bring us down BUT there is also a number of people who will be there for us – instead of ignoring our wrong doings, they’re there to show us how we can improve ourselves and be better. It’s things we sometimes fail to see because we’re too cooped up in thinking others have bad intentions for us.
I used to think everything and everyone around me is trying to bring me down. I mean we all face that at least once in our lives, where we feel others just have bad intentions for us. Like say, our parents? Daddy says, “No you can’t go to parties” and all we can think about is how our parents are just ruining our lives. Then a couple of years down the road realize that yes daddy ‘s got a point, parties have a bad influence. That sort of thing.
As we grow older, I realize that at the end of the day – There is something to learn behind every incident we face in our lives. There’s NO ACCIDENTS in our lives, only Tests. Good to know that it’s going to make us stronger but HOW?
It’s not just by saying it. Acknowledging there’s a mishap alone, will bring us nowhere, but taking action, does. Taking action not by retaliating but by analyzing what the incident is all about. They say,
I can’t agree more. Like how Q used to tell me, “What’s going to happen to you or what has happened depends on what you do now!”. Like if we’re angry at others, we’re just angry at ourselves, we just don’t see that. We’re angry because we set THAT much expectation on others.
Understanding, accepting and learning from our mistakes WILL bring us somewhere. We’ve got to be humble to realize where we went wrong in order to SOAR. Years of experience will bring us nowhere if we don’t learn from our mistakes. How are we to learn to be better if we don’t fall and see what we’ve been through?
I’ve always encouraged Positive Thinking and I have nothing against those who prefer to whine their way through life. It is YOUR life and there’s so much to it than we can ever know. In order to move forward, we’ve got to know where we’ve been. Don’t dwell on what went wrong and keep pointing fingers and blame on others. Instead Focus on what to do next, work on it and get back up BETTER than before – that’s my definition of a WINNER
We’re all trying to get back up one way or another, what we do now is going to impact our future. So why wait when we can act NOW!
