What do you know about YOU!
I want to keep stressing to you that the importance of knowing ourselves is paramount when it comes to the way you feel and operate in society. Ninety percent of the world’s woe comes from people not knowing themselves, their abilities, their frailties, and even their real virtues. Most of us go almost all the way through life as complete strangers to ourselves. Chuang-Tse once said that a man who knows he is a fool…. is not a great fool. It is pretty simple, WE CAN’T START TO IMPROVE UNTIL WE KNOW WHO WE ARE. When you begin to understand who you are, you will begin to live. I will tell you up front that I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I THINK OF WHAT I DO. I call this CHARACTER! You only have to be a participant in social media for a short period time to see the hurtfulness that is out there. People are literally killing themselves over what others say or write about them. She lacks confidence, she craves admiration insatiably, She lives on the reflections of herself in the eyes of others. She does not dare to be herself. If you must love your neighbor as yourself, it is at least as fair to love yourself as your neighbor. You see I have always used a simple statement to project who I am….. If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise. I think back at the times when failure and mistakes use to take its tole on me and the way I felt about myself. I spend lots of time reading and searching for the answers that have saved me from that black hole. I soon realized that the act of inspiring others would translate into the inspiration of my own self. He can inspire a group only if he himself is filled with confidence and hope of success. When something bad happens to me, I think I’m able to deal with it in a pretty good way. That makes me lucky, Some people fall apart at the first little thing that happens. Nothing is so bad that you have to sit down and go crazy. Self pity will destroy you from the inside out. It is human to be tempted by self-pity and supposes himself not to be fully understood or appreciated. I want you to know that misery is a communicable disease. I look at many of my friends and recognize the position they have placed them self in. They often heap the problems onto themselves and then spend countless time whining and crying about the results. If you find that two dogs are very expensive then why would you go out and gather up another one. Of course I just love dogs but two are enough. I can just barely pay for the two so getting another is not a good deal. I have also witnessed some great victories that have been accomplished on FB. I commend those that have overcome the challenges they have faced but would need to remind you that the challenge it self NEVER GOES AWAY. You will live a lifetime revisiting these problems because the demons know where your weaknesses reside. That is why it is important to CONTINUE BUILDING FENCES TO BLOCK THE DEMONS FROM ENTERING INTO YOUR LIFE. You see it is important that you keep all the stupidity on the outside and never let it enter your most inter safe place. God uses the demons NOT TO DESTROY YOU BUT TO SHOW YOU A CLEAR AND CONSTANT PICTURE OF WHAT YOUR FUTURE WILL BE IF YOU ACT A CERTAIN WAY. You don’t have to experience it your self. It is on the outside. As long as you don’t bring it into your inside safe place you will be OK. Please remember that the only measure of what you believe is WHAT YOU DO. There is a time for all things; a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away; there is a time ti fight, AND THAT TIME HAS COME!!!!
