Wishing You Were Here With Me In Dixie. Everybody has the desire to do something. What they lack is the dedication and simple drive to do it. The message is quite simple, if you want something then just make that decision that “I am GOING to do this.” When you want to succeed like you want your next breath then you reach the top because you will press through your own crud and stinking thinking time after time and just like any other muscle memory, success will be LIKE breathing, you will find yourself doing it without even thinking about it.
Even when you feel like a zombie just going through the motions keep on going because it’s important to know that you are not going to want to keep it up, but don’t let up and for goodness sake don’t give up. If you can take it you can make it. Get that through your skull, way down deep in your mind. The most powerful tool that you have in your arsenal is not in your desk drawer or on your computer, it’s in your body. Your most powerful tool is your brain. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
#2 Thing you need to succeed is the proper Mindset.
The mind is a battlefield. That’s why the ancient infernal enemy of man doesn’t meet you in an alley or on the streets but in your mind. The devil doesn’t have to tie you up for you to be bound. He doesn’t tie up your hands!!! He ties up your head….w/Stress….w/Worry…w/Aggravation……w/Low Self-Esteem…w/Pettiness…..w/Anger…w/Hostility….w/Rebellion.
Now Hear this. Maybe your devil(s) didn’t “Make You Do It”, maybe they kept you From Doing it!! GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD!! Why? Pull a chair up close…I’m about to plow close to the corn. When you lose a parent that’s hard. However, losing a spouse is worse. I hear (God forbid) that losing a child is totally devastating….but when you lose yourself…. when your soul is gone, your mind, your will, and your emotions, then what would it prosper you had you gained the whole world?
Stop the Stinking Thinking
Spending too much time in Stinking Thinking not only makes you mentally sick, it can and will make you physically sick. People reading this are now (relative) in a thousand times and in a thousand places (relative), but whenever or wherever you are right now put your hands on your head and say, “I choose to have a new mind.” What do you mean, Teddy Bear? Having a new mind means having a new perspective, a new way of looking at my situation, a new way of looking at my circumstances because when I get my new mindset I’ll have a new Way of looking at this year. Let me tell you something that I personally have done from the first day I became a new daddy. That night when Cody was born I threw my shoes under the bed to far to reach. Why did I do that? The reason was that I knew that when I woke up the next morning that I was going to have to get on my knees to get them. The first thing I do to this day when I wake up in the morning is to get down on my knees and give thanks and start my day off right by entering His gates with thanksgiving.
This means there are going to be miracles, blessings, opportunities. and oh hell yes, there are going to be struggles and trials and disappointments and you are going to face discouragement, but with the proper mindset, even adversity leads to opportunities for those with FAITH!! I’m not going to preach but this does…..
There are 3 verses in the Christian Bible, a single passage I really want you to read. Why? Because although written a couple of thousand years ago, it is more up to date than tomorrow’s Newspaper. Hebrews 11:32-34 is not something that’s below the FOLD of your LIFE. I want to talk to you about Giants, not giants in physical size but that of stature. These are like the sands of the seashore in multitude and as the stars of the Heavens innumerable. Look how the author even starts the passage.
Then we see triumph after triumph after triumph. However, as you read on something will catche your eye about halfway down and deep within your heart a strange thing will move you. Over and over and over I had read “by faith…by faith….by faith…by faith”, so much good. Then halfway into the very next verse (35) something strange!! Something so strange does it belong?
There were others……
I have been numbered most my life among the others. You see faith is not just necessary to propel you, a thousand times NO (!!!)…faith is also necessary to maintain you. However, I do not excel because of my adversity, I excel IN SPITE of my adversity. I like to make everything appear simple in my video trainers, however, I am freaking out in my MIND and sometimes wonder if the tiny thing can handle the STRAIN!! If you can take it you can make it. I Must survive!! How? Unbowed, Un-Bent and Unbroken!!
“BEAR” In “MIND”………
You Need to Unpack!! We are just a few weeks from starting the new year 2018. There are certain things that you do not need to be bringing into the new year. There are things that you need to leave behind. Like what? I’m glad you asked. Leave behind those foolish discussions that accomplish nothing but only exist to gender strife. Leave behind everything that is backward, inflexible, negative, condescending, carnal, and everything that holds you back. Refuse to waste another day, let alone another year with an old mindset that causes you to be hell bent on your own destruction.
Don’t miss what I am about to say. This is KEY, this is the CRUX of the WHOLE matter. Don’t wrap and shape yourself by the comings and goings of those who starve. Don’t conform to failure. Yet do not alter or deny integrity to thrive. I would rather be the doorkeeper in a poor man’s tent than a liar. I cannot stand a thief or a liar, this is why I’m a webmaster instead of a politician.
You can sell like a wolf without joining the pack. Don’t shape your opinions and attitudes around circumstances that you cannot change. Seek truth above all else while walking upright in integrity. Don’t go into another month with that Stinking Thinking about how bad you have it without giving a thought that there are tons of people on their faces right now begging God for the opportunities you have right now and are about to waste. We bitch about a dollar when there are those without a dime……….and stop wanting to be liked so damn much!! Step up to meet the moment and then grab hold and do not let go. Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually translated “seize the day”
When Is My Time Coming, Teddy Bear?
Buddy, your time is coming as soon as you decide to stop looking for answers in tea leaves and fairy tales and down the Yellow Brick Road to the man behind the curtain. The man behind the curtain is a man like you. Stop looking at the stars and start looking within yourself and to the one who made those stars for your answers. Don’t click the heels of your shoes together but reign in the loins of your mind and click the heels of innovation, inspiration, dedication, determination, education. Why? Because these lead the way to GRADUATION!! Hooah!!
As soon as you get this mindset you can get your budget met! Do you want to be debt free? You could have been free YEARS ago. All the prisoners of war have not come home. You are dwelling in prisons of your own making. Set yourself free now, and come home.
You can get it out!! Get what out, Bear? You can get yourself out, You can get your family out, you can get your friends out. All you have to do is get the lead out!! If you can get your mindset and get your prosperity out (not monetarily only but in every way) all the devils of hell cannot win, no weapon formed against you will prosper. No chains can hold you, you wear no man’s chains.
Where you are right now…stand up…place a hand on each knee…… then jerk up real quick!!! That popping sound you just heard was you sphincter muscle slipping off from around your neck that was choking off the blood supply to your brain. Pop your head out. Tell your husband or wife or children that you are coming OUT!!! That you are coming out….
Let’s Grow Together. Do you have it? Have what? The mindset. If you do then go out there and make some damn money!
