That one thing that is crippling you!

Do you know you have the power within you to be a change agent?

It is easy to allow our thoughts to dictate what we do or where we go in our lives.

It’s like the meaning of insanity “Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.”

What is that one thing in your life that you want to change?

Whether its to get up early, get a workout in, make that business decision, not yell at the kids, or want more for you live.

•Our emotions dictate our thoughts.

•Our thoughts dictate our decisions.

•Our decisions determine our behaviors.

•Our behaviors shape our relationships and those things around us.

Here is one of the crippling thoughts: “I am never going to write a book; I am such a bad writer.”

Then I feel like poopie and feel like a loser. Then this enables me, and I do nothing towards my writing, and there goes another year of “nada.”

Action Steps:

I begin to change those thoughts by speaking life, taking that one thought captive, and speaking God’s word over it!

“I will publish my book, and I am an amazing writer.” I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me! Then I begin to envision myself at Barnes and Noble, and people are filled to the back, wanting me to sign their book!

See, with our thoughts, one must put forth action and then envision your thought and see it come to fruition.

I want to encourage you and tell you that you can be that change agent in your life—one step and day at a time. Remember, you are called for greatness! Now go and be a “change agent!”

Today, focus on that one thought that is crippling you and begin to be a “change agent” in that area!

It is time to unlock whose within you.

I remember growing up hearing my stepfather tell me, “I would never amount to anything.” So I allowed fear to paralyze me and keep me hidden. It was when the failure part came to reality to me. I had learned to remain unseen and never discovering who I was within me for so many years bound by fear and unworthiness.

I recognize where I was failing at was not trying and not believing in myself. I had to unlock what was within me and be seen. I had to reevaluate the lies and replace them with the truth. I had to get out of my comfort zone and do it even if I was afraid of the outcome. So many lies kept me stuck and handicap. What a great feeling of accomplishment when I stepped out of the way of me! Where would I be today if I had decided to be locked away somewhere? Are you afraid of failing like I was?

Are you in the way of you? Are you stopping yourself from grabbing ahold of the things you have dreamt of and locked away not to be seen? As the world sits on the other side longing for someone to speak life and give them hope, yet you are the carrier, the one they have waited on.

Can you envision yourself making a difference, strutting in your accomplishments? Get out of your way, step aside, and let me introduce you to the “New You.” Please get to know that person, he/she is waiting for you to unlock those dreams and release the real you. You have something so different and unique about you. Now unlock you and take a look at all you have inside of you. The world awaits your talents and gifting and your presence.

Learn to evaluate the lies and replace them with the truth. The only thing stopping you from unlocking you is YOU!
