You are what you think.

Be the king of your domain, the emperor of your mind.
 
Proverbs 23:7 shows us that you are not what you say you are. You are not even what you act like you are. You are what you think.
 
Want to be happy? Think happy thoughts. Want to be successful? Stop dwelling on failure. These thoughts may not manifest themselves in the way you think they should, but they will change who you are.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” — Philippians 4:8

 

Why me, Lord?

 

You can learn much from other people, but don’t forget that your life is a good mentor.

Hard fights make heroes. Heroes make leaders, and good leaders lead others to even greater success.

You’ve got this!

Don’t sulk, study. Don’t be a pessimist, be prepared! In the end, you’ll stop whining and start winning.

Study the lessons well and you’ll stop asking “Why Me?” and instead say “Of course Me!”

Toiling Away

You don’t know if you’ll die at a hundred
Or live to see just one more day
You want your retirement funded
But detest working your life away

You may work for the future or live for today
Ir come up with some other plan.
But you’re missing the mark if you don’t find the heart
To spend time helping your fellow man.

You may not see the morning, so please heed this warning:
Make sure that you’re soul has been saved.
For your spirit and legacy, kinship and memories
Are all that will outlast the grave.

“Father, forgive me for all of my sins.
I believe that your Son died for me.”
If you prayed this you know, whenever you go,
That heaven is your destiny.
