Power In The Little Things

September 26, 2011

Many of us want to change certain things in our lives. We want these changes now. As a result, we sometimes don’t notice the progress we are making. Because we still are not the people we want to be, don’t have the money we are seeking, or haven’t met the ideal partner yet, we feel like nothing is happening and we’ll never get to where we want to be.

I read a quote that the best way to reach our destination on a long journey is to take it one step at a time. It’s the same with our goals. When we pay attention to the little things and take notice of our progress (regardless of how little it is), it makes the journey much easier. I also believe we are much more likely to take action, because we can see that the steps we are taking are getting us somewhere.

When we take small steps and acknowledge small bits of success, before we realize it we are at the doorstep of reaching our goal. Have faith, that even though we are not seeing drastic results right away, things are happening. Pray to God and give Him our dreams and goals. Know that, even if we are not seeing the progress we may want, He is working things out for our best in every moment.

Sometimes, when we look back at the journey after reaching our destination, it’s the little things that we remember forever. So today, let us pay attention to those little things. Let us be thankful for the small bits of success we see, and let us build upon them for even greater results. Enjoy the journey, and know that you will certainly be blessed in the end.

Positive Encouragement

September 5, 2011

Many people ask the questions…what can I do in life? How can I make a difference in the lives of others?

We all have our calling in life. For some, it is clear, while others have yet to discover that calling. In either case, here is something we can all do.

A great way to make positive impacts in all areas of life is by positive encouragement. It’s something anyone can do. However, the more you do it, the more positive your will bring to those you encourage, and to your own life as well.

Who can I encourage? Start with those closest to you. Then move on to those you work with, work for, and even perfect strangers. Oh, and don’t forget to encourage yourself! How can we encourage? The definition of the word encourage is to give confidence, support, and hope to someone. It is free and easy to do!

The challenge I present you (and myself) is to consider today how you can encourage someone. Demonstrate your confidence in them and their ability to succeed. Show that you will help them succeed and even teach them so they can do it on their own. Let them know that their dreams can come true.

The people in your life will be blessed if you encourage them. It is also amazing how you are blessed as well. You will feel great about the help you provided, and you will see how many people will be quick to encourage you when you most need it. If you are looking to make a difference, here is a call you can easily answer. Enjoy the blessings : )
