Week 2 Day 1:
We enter week 2 of our “Live Your Dream Life Course”. Some of you have said how you enjoyed week one. We thank you for your encouraging comments.
The start is not always easy. It is possible to get discouraged at the start if you do not see where you are going. Some of you have seen where this course is leading to; some of you have not. Whatever the case, keep going. For those who are not yet in, things will shape up.
I would like us to start this second week with a quote; and I would like you to read it very carefully. It contains a wealth of wisdom which you may miss unless you read it carefully. Here it goes:
“Make wisdom your provision for the journey from youth to old age, for it is a more certain support than all other possessions.”
Read it a second time. Can you relate it to this course? Of course, you can; and should.
‘Make wisdom your provision for the journey’ of success that you are beginning now until the end, ‘for it is a more certain support than all other possessions.’
To make ‘wisdom your provision for the journey’ of the success that you are beginning’ demands that you follow your course with an open mind, and positive attitude; that you expect the best; that you see everything in this course as being for you; that you put no barriers between you and your course. It demands that you leave out prejudice. That is wisdom. You will see what it will do for you.
WHY AM I HERE?
I am here to journey with you to a great destination. I am here to help you become the person that God created you to become. I am here to assist you to realize the great plan that God has for you. He has a great plan for you; for everybody.
If you are already doing very well in life, that is fine. If you are already shinning and sparkling, you can do more. If you are reading this, I am convinced that the top of the ladder is still far away from you; and thank God He has lifted you this far. You can do more. You have the potential for even greater things.
It is rather unfortunate that when we find ourselves blessed more than others around us, the tendency is to go to sleep; or to sleep on our laurels. Many of us fail to see that the blessings God has given us are meant to serve as an invitation to do more to make the world a better place; and to do more we must work to bring out the best in us. Hence, my friend, you who may already be shinning must resolve to shine even more. To shine more is God’s plan for your life.
You who may not be shining, or who may not find it easy, must maintain your calm. The best begins for you with this course.
It is rather sad that many of us fail to achieve God’s plan for our lives. I want to journey with you with the understanding that what you want is the achievement of God’s plan for your life; and that plan is success or more success.
If you want to bring out the best in you then you want to achieve God’s plan for your life. Realizing your full potential is achieving God’s plan for your life; and I am here to assure you that you can do that. I am here to assist you do that.
I want to assure you that you can become the person that you are meant to be. Did you get that? You can become the person you are meant to be. That is a powerful statement and why I stress it. I like you to personalize that sentence. Instead of ‘You can become the person you are meant to be’, say ‘I can become the person I am meant to be.’
Say it again. Those words are very important. Look at them again. Do you know that they are good but not good enough? You say ‘I can’. That is an expression of possibility. What you are saying is it is possible for you to become the person you are meant to be; but you may not become the person you are meant to be. You may and you may not. That statement is not good enough for someone like you who really want to succeed. It’s not a decisive statement.
You must be decisive. You must be clear about what you want. I want you to modify those words to express your resolve to become the person you want to be and your belief that you will do so. That is the key: your resolve and your belief. Now, let’s go. Put it this way: ‘I will become the person I am meant to be.” If you have said that, perfect!
You must believe this if you want to get the most out of what this course is out to give you. If you don’t believe it, there is no use pursuing the course. You will only be wasting your time unless you change.
I want you to put in your mind once and for all that God brought you into this world for great things and is ready to help you achieve them; but you must believe that you will achieve them and be willing to work for them. If you believe this, then let us continue. The end result will be joy. You will see yourself living the life of your dreams; the life that you have never thought you could live.
It will be to your advantage to go back to the beginning and give this presentation a good second and why not a third reading? Let it never leave you that what you are doing is a course. It is a package that we have put together for you. You will see the while unfolding as we progress and put the parts together.
For your assignment for day one of this second week, give your reaction to this presentation. You may state what has caught your attention; what you agree or disagree with; like or dislike; and which thoughts or lines stand out to you. Say what message you have got from the passage. If something here has inspired you, you may blog on it, and mention your source of inspiration.
