Today's focus for MindSet Monday's is: Force the Issue!
Commanding your day by Forcing the Issue!
Are you getting tired of constantly thinking about the change you want to see? How long have you been talking about your goals, dreams, desires and passions? Are your friends and family getting sick of listening to your story? Have you lost your drive and fell on and off again? Do you go super hard for what you want and then slowly fall back into the same normal routine? Are you committed to seeing the change you want for yourself? Or are you merely just interested in that dream because it looks good? How bad do you really want whatever it is that you are seeking? I don't know about you but I am over it! Ain't nobody go time for that! I want it so bad I am willing to do whatever it is I have to! Even if it means Forcing the Issue! What about you?
What you do have time for is some Action! If you think you don't have time, then you don't. Make the time for what you want and the change you want to see happen. You already have your vision and plan what else do you need? Are you waiting for it to fall out the sky? Have you been waiting for someone to hand it to you, since you are so used to getting you way? (raises hand) What good is saying a thing and knowing a thing but doing the complete opposite? Nothing. Nothing but a big contradiction. Yea Yea so we know that the first step to change is knowing. You must have insight into the change you want to see happen. So now that we know it then what? You can't just stop there. Constantly dreaming and talking about where you want to be is not going to get your far. Yes sometimes you have to FORCE the issue. Maybe you have never forced the issue before. I know that I haven't. Thank God today is a new day, so you get a another chance and a new opportunity. Make the change. Not just say what you mean but do what you say! Live out what you want. Believe you can have your hearts desires. Don't settle for where you are and miss out on an opportunity to strive towards where you want to be. Its time to put an end to all this talking of goals, values and visions and put forth action to make it come to pass. How bad do you really want it? Prove it! So bad that you are willingly to press the issue?!
We have all heard the saying Go Hard or Go Home. I think its time for you to take this a little more literally. Give it all or nothing. Stay in the game! In order to get what you want and to where you want to go, you must Force the issue. No more being passive and just wishing for things to happen. If your situation does not look how you want it to do, make the adjustment. Create opportunities. What will it take? Pastor Sean McMillan say, "In order to have some sacred something precious must be sacrificed!" What sacrifices are you going to make? What risk are you going to take? How bad do you really want it?
Stir and shake some things up. Prayer harder. Fight harder. Do something you have never done before. Make that phone call. Sell yourself. Take a leap. Move in faith. Make a huge sacrifice. Fast longer. Let some things and people go. Get honest with yourself. Make a move. Whatever is is that you need to do, DO IT!
**I have been wanting to teach at the collegiate level for years. First I wasn't offered a position. I was mad. I changed my attitude and believed it would be. Then I was given a possibility and when it turned into No, I was cool. I pressed and forced the issue by letting it be known I want to teach and keep me in mind. A class comes up at a time that is not ideal, but I took the course. Not only did I take it but I forced the issue by asking them to let me know if something comes up better. Now here we are today that I have been given a course with a perfect beyond ideal schedule all after pressing and forcing the issue. DON'T GIVE UP. NO MATTER WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE OR FEEL LIKE. FORCE THE ISSUE UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT YOU WANT MANIFESTED**
My Challenge to you!
My challenge to you today is to look at your motivation and purpose behind what you want? Why do you want it? What is driving you? This will help you determine if you really want it and how bad. Do you really want it or does it just look great? What have you been putting off doing? I challenge you to FORCE and PRESS the issue!
Force the issue on accomplishing your goals and dreams. Force the issue of the life you want to live. Force and press until you see it manifested and come to pass! Show God how bad you really want it and what you are willing to do to get it. He is watching and waiting!
Share your Thoughts. What are you willing to sacrifice to get to where you want to be? How will you force the issue today? How have your forced the issue and it worked out for your good?
