Morning Inspiration… came across this blog and I read his post and I felt that I needed to share his truths with you all…the fear of being wrong can get the best of us….
Get over your fear of being “wrong.” We are too often afraid to make mistakes or take chances for fear of looking foolish but is the reward not worth it? I use to be very much in my shell about a lot of things, afraid to stick out of the crowed and get myself noticed but I now say throw caution to the wind. Yes you may look like a fool if you do something that doesn’t work out but own that, stand up and say “well at least I had the guts to take the chance.” Most people are too scared to take that chance and often end up being sad because they never too the shot. You should take 100% of the shots because the worse that could happen is that it doesn’t work, but at least you tried! The more you try the more chances you have to succeed, so take every last one you get. The options are endless as long as you have a “can do” attitude and are willing to look a little bit funny sometimes. It’s also very healthy to be able to laugh at yourself if you do make a mistake because then no one can turn around and use it against you because you have taken that possibly negative situation and made it a positive one. There is no being wrong, you simply haven’t found the right answer yet, but at least your are making the effort to find it.
Positive Affirmation of the Day: “I may make mistakes, but at least I tried.”
Morning Inspiration…imagine that if God gave us a report card on how we treated each other, our cheating on one another or how we lie, cheat and steal just to get ahead in life. I know we are not perfect, I know I am not and sometimes being honest is scary but always the best policy. When something is not working and you just do not know how to get out of a particular situation…make sure you are honest about everything that you do and even though it might hurt the other persons feelings. They can only respect you for being honest. God always says honesty is the best policy.
In the words of iamrennyren…..Imagine if God looked at a report card every time we asked something of him. if we asked for a new house and he told us no because you didn’t get an A in sharing. What if you asked for a family and he said no to you, you don’t deserve one because you didn’t get an A in commitment. We need to start being more like God and stop judging people by our own mental report cards and giving them the same grace, God is showing/giving us. If God knows none of us are perfect, do we expect everyone else to be? Do not judge others and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will call come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.-Luke 6:37
