DECLARATION of Success: I’ve ALWAYS been a positive thinker; and I’m not one prone to depression…. And worrying about “spilt milk.” My Step-Father used to tell me that his Mother always told him that “he was too stupid to be depressed.” I’m not declaring my stupidity; but rather…I thank God that He’s spared me that issue.
I’ve been through some terrible things in my life, even recently. I REFUSE to allow defeat to cross my mind. Words like defeat, failure, depression, are not in my vocabulary. If I think, even remotely, that I will not succeed in a specific issue; I don’t bother to try. I move on… immediately to something with improved odds.
Some, so called experts, suggest that by experiencing failure, we can become better leaders. I’m sorry; I’m not buying that…or, am I going to experiment with that type of thought(less) process. I’ll take the same energy and apply it to something “relating” to success. What is my point, you ask?
Ok…I’m suggesting that if we DECLARE our success, then plan around that declaration, and Plan for your declaration to become a Reality. Look forward to it. Fall in love with the future of your success. Chase it, embrace it. DECLARE it. Determine exactly what it is that you want your future to be (POA), and plan each step.
I STRONGLY recommend, too, that you place yourself amongst “positive-thinking” people. Just as you would seek a college degree; planning each course, etc. then you would do the same in your “declaration-to-succeed.”
God expects us to be successful; He expects us to plan our course of actions; and He will be there to guide us along the way. We’re told in Proverbs 6:2 – Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
