What Is My Mission In Life?

What Is My Mission In Life

You have a mission in life. It is specific and special.

Successful people know their mission and as they work it out, it leads them to success. That is why best-selling author Tommy Newberry says, “Success is a planned outcome, not an accident”.

What is ‘mission’?

Simply put, it is your purpose. It is what you are born for. It is the reason why you exist on this earth.

There is a powerful passage in the Scripture where Jesus declares, “…for this purpose I came…” (John 12:27). He knew His purpose. He followed His purpose. He did His purpose. He was successful.

Why follow your mission?

Doing your mission brings you vitality. Every day becomes a new opportunity to accomplish what you are called for. You go to bed every night satisfied knowing that you did what you are created to do.

Doing your mission provides a strong sense of destiny. You realize that you are not here by chance. You know why you are here for such a time as this.

Martin Luther sensed it. Martin Luther King Jr. sensed it. Do you?

How To Leave The Past Behind

How To Leave The Past Behind

Many folks struggle with the past. Mostly it will be about negative experiences. Sometimes it will be about the successes they had. It’s not that the past won’t leave them. No, they won’t leave the past!

Two major issues when you hold on to the past

1. Past victories are just victories of the past.

No, I am not minimizing the good things of the past. But, the truth is, past victories are just victories of the past. It may not be benefitting us directly now. Some of those victories may have been diminished by new victories. Besides, there are new challenges to be tackled.

2. You cannot move forward with your eyes backward.

If you doubt this, try out for yourself (Caution: Danger!). It is not only about the eyes but also about our mind. With our mind on our past, we cannot do a focused effort for the now and the next. It’s just impossible.

Two significant ways to get unstuck from the past

1. Learn the art of forgetfulness.

It is something we got to take the initiative to do because it won’t happen automatically. Once I heard an incident where a lady was asked how she could forget her gruesome experience of being abused. She replied, “I choose to.”

Is it possible? It is. That doesn’t mean you will not have any of the past in your mind. What it means is it will not have the power to control your progress.

2. Learn from the past and go past it.

Surely there will be stuff you can learn from your past experiences. Check it out. Grab the wisdom. File it. Then, let go of the past into history.

There are wonderful stuff awaiting you in the future. You got to keep moving forward to accomplish all you are called to do. Run for what’s ahead! Learn to forget the past.

How To Wake Up Properly In The Morning

Wake Up Properly In The Morning

“Early to bed, early to rise” – that’s a good adage for a healthy living. However what you do after you wake up is equally important for a healthy day. Some folks get up hurriedly and run right into the day’s busyness. Some others get up lazily and sit thinking on their beds for a while.

Whatever be your style, there are certain disciplines that could help you bring vitality into your mornings.

A. Thank God. This is one sure energizer for the mornings. It can be in the form of a song or statement. Thank God for the good things He did for you. Check out this passage from the Scriptures: “…I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning…” (Psalm 59:16 AMP).

B. Visualize good stuff. What you think when you get up is important. Those who dwell on negative thoughts tend to do negative actions all through the day. Choose to think positive stuff. Visualize scriptural promises coming to pass in your life.

C. Sit up straight. There is power in the way you sit up. If you sit up lazily, that’s how you are going to act later that day. If you sit up straight, that creates an inner self-image in your mind about a healthy and ready ‘you’.

D. Stand up with purpose. When you get on your feet, you need to have a purpose (goal) to fulfill on that day. For this, it will be good to plan your day the previous night before you retire. The moment your feet touches the floor, know that your ‘mission’ starts now.

E. Act disciplined. The above four disciplines will help you create momentum. But to maintain and increase that momentum, do everything disciplined on that day right from the start. Reject mediocrity and half-hearted efforts. Throw yourself wholly into what you do.

Though it may seem hard in the beginning, with passion and practice, these five disciplines can be inculcated into one’s everyday life. And the result will be amazing. Have a great day!
