Six Personal Gifts to Control Your Own Destiny and Stay Great
Never give your power away. You have six personal gifts to control your own destiny and stay great.
is being responsible, and doing what is expected of you. To be in
control of your own destiny you must be pro-active. Life takes place in a
decision. When you take action to make something happen, stuff is going
to happen. What to do about what happens, after you make something
happen is where you take control. When stuff happens that you did not
plan on, that is opportunity knocking.
First personal gift:
Knowledge - Without knowledge you will have no power to take action.
Build on the knowledge already have. Learned knowledge is power.
Observe, listen, read, smell, taste, touch, practice, practice, and
practice. I am willing to listen, learn, and change how I think. Think
big. It does not cost anything to think big. When you think big, you are
taking care of yourself. When you think small you are focusing on your
ego. The self always thinks big.
Second personal gift: Grace – You must request grace (permission)
must have permission from yourself. Without permission you will
procrastinate. You will sit and wait. Those who hesitate are lost.
personal gift: Authority – You must enjoy your authority to say yes or
no! Without authority someone else is running the show. You are the
authority in your life, nobody thinks in your mind. You are the center
that watches and runs the show that can choose which way it will go. I
am consciousness. Take charge of your own destiny. Guess what? Now what?
personal gift: Spirit – You must nurture your Sprit. It is so important
because it brings energy and excitement. Spirit must grow because the
opportunities will grow as times go on. Spirit is the greatest unused
power on earth. Music can put wings on the human spirit. That's the
Fifth personal gift: Commitment – You must strengthen
your commitment to yourself. Without commitment there is no long-term
persistence. Persistence creates desire and builds knowledge. Knowledge
must build, because of so much opportunity. One must have a heart-felt
commitment in any endeavor they undertake. Be committed to yourself. The
commitment you have to yourself is the commitment you will have to your
family, your profession, your community. Love is a feeling of
commitment. Commitment is a joining of forces.
gift: Opportunity – You must seize opportunity. Realize that problems
are only opportunities based on how you view them. If you can't do
anything, pray for someone else. If you can't pray, ask others to pray
for you. If possible, do something. Faith without work is dead. Problems
are sometimes opportunities for you to keep control of your own
