Three Things To Do Immediately To Start Living Your Destiny
Have you ever pondered the wonders of our minds?
For example: I’m sitting here in a Café in Houston Texas writing this article when I look up at the TV screen and to my dismay a popular daytime soap is on. Days of Our Lives has resided on TV nearly since its invention but I’m authentically ashamed to admit that even I got caught up in the daytime drama at one point.
I certainly don’t begrudge anyone their entertainment but I realized a few years ago that most of the entertainment available today serves no other purpose than time fillers and distractions. The sad truth is that these distractions delay or worse prevent us from focusing on achieving our destiny.
Several years ago we disconnected our cable and we’ve never turned it back on. And no, I don’t have Satellite. I don’t even have a digital antenna to receive free programming and I don’t need it. I admit I do have a streaming device that pumps in some streaming entertainment but nothing more.
I believe Destiny deserves our full attention because it was written into the stars by God. He has a plan and a purpose for each one of us. We just have to be willing to listen to His directions to see it become our reality.
I don’t say this lightly but because I’ve reached a point in my life that I understand I’m guilty of ignoring my purpose. It’s become very clear to me that if I don’t take a step of faith toward the desires God put in my heart to be an author and a life changer that I will waste another TWENTY YEARS doing something I like but not something I love.
Are you any different?
So what should we do today that will get us one step closer to God’s perfect plan for our lives? The answer is in Romans 12.
2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
- Stop allowing distractions into your life.
I started with TV and then the radio but I’m finding and riding my life of as many distractions as I can find.
- Renew your mind
I have an Audible account where I purchase and download to my phone audio books that motivate, encourage or teach me something. I’ve turned my car into an education center.
- Write your vision down
What is it you’d love to do? Write it down NOW and develop a plan to achieve it. My plan is in place and although I have achieved my dream yet. Everyday I’m one step closer.
