Today I spent some time thinking about why I had dropped out of my routine. I had started to discipline myself and had a schedule so that I could priortise and do the first things first. Although I had grown up thinkjng having a timetable was restrictive, I now understand it is through order we get the space and time to be spontaneous. Nevertheless I found I had been slacking the past.couple of weeks.
After much thought I realised I had a change in mindset. I had lost sight of the end goal and was so consumed by thinking about doing the tasks and how little progress I was making, that I stopped making progress altogether.
I quickly set my mind on changing this by reminding myself of my vision, the people who would be affected and the way I would grow as a person. I found that by putting the end goal at the forefront of my mind, my strength and zeal was renewed. I believe that we all have a purpose. A purpose that God himself has called us to. Oftentimes we are our biggest stumling blocks by believing we are not good enough. Thinking like that is the worst mistake to make. Negative thoughts clutter our lives by making us think we are incapable, unimportant or insignificant. The joke is, once we think like that – we usually become it.
One of the most simple but overlooked facts of life is: You are here for a reason.
