Jim Rohn use to always say, It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go”. You and I make the decision where we want to go in life and how fast we want to get there. We control the sails on our vessels, therefore we’re the ones responsible for everything that have right now in our lives, good or not so good.
If you want to live a more abundant life, there are 3 things you must learn to master every day. Follow these ABCs and you’ll start living a more abundant life today!
A. Have a Positive Attitude
Charles Swindoll author, educator, and Christian pastor said: “Attitude, to me, is more important than . . . the past, . . . than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.”
We cant direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails. For maximum happiness, peace, and contentment, may we choose a positive attitude.
B. Believe in Yourself
Thomas Fuller, an English churchman and historian who lived in the 17th century, penned this truth: “He does not believe that does not live according to his belief.” Don’t limit yourself and don’t let others convince you that you are limited in what you can do. Believe in yourself and then live so as to reach your possibilities. You can achieve what you believe you can. Trust and believe and have faith.
C. Face Challenges with Courage
Courage becomes a worthwhile and meaningful virtue when it is regarded not so much as a willingness to die manfully but as a determination to live decently.
Said the American essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide on, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”
