Today I decide to steer clear of corrupt communication. Corrupt communication is any communication, broadcast, podcast, conversation, tv show, book, or movie that does not fulfill my purpose or get me to my desired destination.
I was thinking about the moments of success in my life. I discovered that those moments were all connected to a consistent routine. My success or failure is in what I do daily. What I do daily is my life. The question is, is this the life I desired?
Routine. We all have one even if we don’t realize it. We do the same things at the same time every day. These things we do shape the quality of our lives. They determine if we will be successful or not.
Even what we say continually is also part of our routine. When certain things happen in life, we say certain things and get the results of what we said. God tells us in Psalms 35:27 what to say continually.
“Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.””
Psalms 35:27 NKJV
Our success or failure is evident in what we do and say daily. Life is better with a good routine.
Our lives cannot be random if want to succeed. Each day must be planned and executed according to plan. We must live our lives by decision. The decision to live life the way He designed it. Nothing less.
- Decide what I want my life to be.
- Find out what I need to make it so.
- Set up a plan for making it so.
- Follow the plan until it becomes routine.
- Rinse and repeat.
The writing of these five steps is easy.
Carrying out each step is an adventure.
Have you thought about what you want your life to be?
a particular opinion or attitude expressed.
There are many voices all around us. The environment we choose influences the voices we hear. Hearing is passive and requires little effort from us. Listening is active. It requires our choice and decision to tune in. When we take action on what we listen to we have obeyed that particular voice.
Which voice do you hear first thing in the morning? The one in your head? YouTube? TV, radio, strangers?
Whose voice do you listen for each morning? Out of all the voices in your space/environment to which do you give your attention?
Whose voice do you obey each morning? The director in a movie, play or TV show tells the actors where to stand, how to act and what to say for a desired result. In life the voices we hear, listen to and obey, direct our lives. They tell us what to say how to live and behave. And this is by our choice whether we are aware of it or not. The voice you obey directs your day. Who directs your day?
There are voices who will help our reach our destination. And there are voices who will hinder our progress. The choice is always ours. Our ears are vital organs. They are the door to our hearts and minds. We must guard them against the voices that are against our purpose, genius or destiny.
Set your environment to thrive. Be mindful when picking your digital mentors. Make sure they align with your purpose and don’t contradict each other. Only hang with the voices that promote your purpose. Only allow the voices that will help you reach your destiny. You don’t need many voices you need the right voice. Choose wisely.
Decide what the day will be.
Decide the outcome.
Will it be the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.
Our decisions determine our destiny.
Decide the day
Are you headed towards destiny? Are you on the path you set for your life? Are you on assignment?
Decide to be healthy.
Decide to be victorious.
Decide your destiny today.
You will be tempted to resort to your old ways until your new ways are fully accepted and established. You must make up your mind to press forward! This requires a decision of quality. One for which there is no turning back. Even in the face of the temptation to do so.
You cannot be defeated so don’t you quit!
- We hear (good or bad)
- We choose to believe (good or bad)
- We speak what we believe (good or bad)
- We live what we speak (good or bad)
Life and death are always around in our faces. Faith, fear, death, and life all come by hearing. this is why we must watch what goes into our ears.
What we allow into our ears eventually makes its way (by our choice) into our hearts and minds. Death, fear panic, negativity, worry, dread, and other bad reports are ours to choose.
Life, good, positivity, faith optimism, hope, and other good reports are also ours to choose.
We speak what we believe. What continually say to you about you and your situation is the life you live. Don’t like your life? Choose to believe better.
The environment is which grow is critical to our we see ourselves and what we allow to happen to us and those around us.
