amazing-planDon’t give up.

Maybe you have been working on a relationship for several years and it looks like it just won’t get any better. Perhaps a child is going the wrong direction in life or ignoring you. Maybe your spouse doesn’t understand you and causes you grief. Or maybe you are working on a promotion at work and it just seems to be impossible to get it.

Don’t give up, but learn to enjoy life while striving for your goal.

I remember a lady telling me that her husband had ideas for a number of different businesses to start here in the USA. He would start one business and if it didn’t do well after a couple of years he would move on to something else. She said he didn’t have the patience to stick with something until it was successful. The average new business takes five years before it becomes profitable. We help you start a home business.

If you have friends who seem to have a knack for solving relationship problems or career challenges, maybe you feel unlucky, like you are just not blessed in life. But when you compare yourself with what someone claims they have (maybe their claims are overstated) you often get discouraged.

To those of you reading this who have goals and dreams in life that just don’t seem to be possible, just remember, Jesus said that with faith all things are possible. Not only Jesus, but many other successful people said the same thing.

Don’t give up, you will make it.

Abraham Lincoln failed many, many times before becoming president of the United States. Many consider him our best president. Winston Churchill also failed many times and struggled with depression almost constantly before becoming the outstanding leader who guided Great Briton through one of their most dangerous times in history.

When discouraged, there are many things that can get you feeling better. Read or listen to encouraging, motivational books and sermons. Take a walk. It is amazing how much better a person feels after exercise because it releases the “feel-good” chemicals into the bloodstream.

Count your blessings.

Gratitude not only helps you make it through the day with a happier mindset, it also makes you stronger and it certainly makes your prayers more effective. Gratitude is one of the 10260032_733336706703961_741405142712697955_nkey faith lifters, and Jesus said many times that faith is a key to answered prayer.

So if it seems that God is not listening to you, don’t give up. Remember, he loves you more than you love yourself and he is always looking out for you.

Remember, the people Moses led to the Promised Land had to fight sword to sword with giants (or more correctly, they thought they would have to) and you probably never will fight a giant. However, you may have to fight against your impatience. It may take longer than you expect to see success.

This really works!

Do you want more better financesold_door_texture-1013tm-56, success, health, love or happiness? There is a way to bring these into your life.  There are certain principals in the Bible that people have used for thousands of years to bring these good things. Jesus said faith is key to receiving good things.

Faith starts in the mind, so to achieve success, train your mind to activate the power you need for success in these areas. Psychologists have said for many years that your attitude, your confidence that you can achieve a goal is the most important thing towards achieving it. A famous study by a Yale professor named Rosenthal demonstrated that when teachers believed their students were top achievers, they became better students just because of the teachers faith in them. You must have faith in yourself.

Many famous athletes, inventors, businessmen, etc. talk about the power of confidence. During the last year I heard on two different occasions that the most important thing that determines if an aspiring actor makes it or not is confidence. OJ Simpson, one of the greatest running backs in the NFL wore braces on his legs when he was a child. At a football game he walked up to the best running back in the league and told him that some day he would be like that man, he would be the best running back. The man probably didn’t have much faith that OJ could do it, but OJ did. He daydreamed about it every day. Visualizing a goal is one of the best ways to make it happen. When I say OJ run the football in pro games it looked like magic. I wondered how he could move so quickly as the defenders made their moves. Later I realized he had done it a million times in his mind before he ever made it to the pro’s.

Think about it, if you have two students studying for the same test, and one believes that if he studies well he will do well, he will be more likely to study harder and longer than the student who believes he has no chance of getting a good grade. “What’s the use?” he will say.

Affirmations and visualization are powerful ways to increase your ability and confidence. Find a powerful sentence to say ten times every day. It helps to look in a mirror and say it out loud. You might say something like, “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise.” Or you might take a verse from the Bible “I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13.

Affirm it, visualize it as often as you can every day. The more you do it, the better. I  promise you, this will help you get good results, millions of people have done it and will tell you it works.
