Is life getting you down? Do you feel like you have bigger problems than those around you? Consider this…
If everyone were to pile all of their problems into the middle of the room, and you could swap yours out,
you’ll probably be in a hurry to grab yours back.
The grass is ALWAYS greener. When we look at everyone around us, we never see the whole picture. Same goes for other people. They probably look at you and wish they could swap their problems with yours. (I know you are laughing, but it is true!) Your life may be tough right now, but don’t be so quick to envy someone else. Your issues may not be so bad after all!
From time to time its good for us to TaKe StOcK of our life. Where we’ve been and where we’re going. What has worked and what has failed. What stays and what goes.
I find the end of the year is a good time for this. January one is synonymous with new BegiNniNgs. And here is the question I am pondering:
What OnE HaBiT (if I had it) would give the “biggest bang for the buck”?
Would that one habit be self-control/discipline, faithfulness, truthfulness, love, patience, kindness, diligence, perseverance, humility, better communication skills, or loyalty?
Chances are we all have that “oNe HaBiT” that (if we possessed it) would change the course of our life. If you have trouble coming up with an answer ask yourself where you have the most conflict in your life. It’s most likely in that area you could use some help. Maybe its money problems; relationship problems; low self-esteem issues; or problems in your thought life, personal life or spiritual life.
As 2011 comes to a close, take some time to take stock of your life. Are you headed down a path that will ultimately take you to your desired destination? It’s well worth the InTroSpeCtiOn.
What’s your “One Habit”?
