Choose Your Side!
Did you realize that you set the course for your day BEFORE you even get out of bed?! That’s right! Before you even get out of bed…the thoughts you think and the words you speak will set the tone for your day!
For instance, if you wake up and think, “Oh no…it’s already time to get up….ugh….I’m so tired!” Guess what?! You are going to feel even more tired….and if you don’t correct course, you’ll feel even more tired & run down as the day progresses!
What if, instead, you think & SAY, “Thank you, God, for another day! Thank you for the energy & wisdom I need for this day! Thank you for helping me to get up & get going! It’s going to be a great day & great things are going to happen to me today!” Can you see the difference?
Here’s another one, “Ughhhh….I have SO MUCH to do today, I don’t know how I will ever get it all done! I just want to stay in bed!!” Guess what?! You won’t get it all done…..or you’ll be so stressed & miserable as you frantically work and work and work until you drop!
BUT……you could instead, think & SAY, “Thank you, God, for this day! There is so much to do, please help me to order this day according to your plan. Thank you for giving me focus, energy, insight & everything else I need to make this day fruitful! Keep me from being distracted on things that don’t matter and to be a wise steward of the minutes & hours today!”
WOW! What a difference a few words can make!
Now, you may not believe me that this works…YET! But I CHALLENGE you to give it a try…..a REAL TRY….more than once….until it becomes a habit….then, tell me what a difference it has made in your life!
I know this works because I do it…and I have taught many women to do the same….and you know what?! The ones who have put it into PRACTICE & made it a HABIT see AMAZING results!
I’d love to hear what a difference this makes for you…please pop over and share in the comments below!
