The Balance of Success

MB Text 7-12-2015 (Balance Success)Faith is the power link to every seeable impossible desirable endeavor you may encounter. If balance is the key to life, then, faith is the power of life, and patience is the virtue of life. It is quite easy to talk about how one’s life needs balance; but how to achieve it has escaped the majority of people.

Achieving balance can be difficult because it involves knowledge, wisdom, tenacity, and action, and some people may lack adequacy in one or more of these qualities. In your Bible, the book of James says that we must not be hearers of the word only, but also doers of the word. This is where the problem comes into the equation. Most people are good at hearing to a degree, but lousy at doing. Balance, then, is formed out of sound and unbiased advice and guidance from a creditable source, and then immediately made actionable.

Faith is the power of life because it produces the ability to be tenacious. Power is power; it has no alternative to its strength and supremacy. Faith rests in its own pool of authority, and it is the force behind every movement and action. Patience is the virtue of life. It is the quality of character and the strategy to winning. Patience is needed in order to qualify the balance in one’s life, or else everything will be done in life without forethought and purpose.

Since most people are good at hearing instructions but terrible when it comes to follow through, failure is frequently inevitable. Balance is not leveling every quality off to the same degree; it is placing the importance on each quality regardless of its magnitude. When balance is achieved, it looks like the display on an equalizer component. Therefore, perfect harmony is realized because balance has been accomplished. This kind of action results not only in life becoming manageable, but also in success as being practical. There is nothing more attractive to God than a breathing faith.

Your life is at its finest when you become entrenched and completely invested in the effort but unattached from the results. I realized how difficult this can be, but it’s possible. This is the place where you are intimate with your personal power because you realize that the expedition and the exertion are important. There is a place you arrive where you must draw a line in the sand and let go of that something which has to lead you to a new position, or to a certain person loving you, or it has to lead to you making a lot of money. When your desires are discombobulated or targeted towards you feeling better about yourself, you actually become disempowered by making the goal the consummate.

I believe the goal has to do with the process itself. In reality, the end is inherited in the means. Who you are when you put forth the effort is more important than what you want to become at the end of your effort. If you are totally convinced you have nothing left in you after your effort, how can you not be content with the outcome?

Understanding the balance to success is not winning every battle or achieving every goal. It is what knowledge you are to acquire, or what skill you are to develop, or what corrections you are to make from each skirmish or attempt at something, regardless of the outcome, so that you are more prepared for the next endeavor.

Follow Instructions

Following InstructionsOne of the most difficult things for people to do is follow instructions or directions, especially when it appears as though the instructions or directions are incorrect.

Have you ever had anyone give you directions to a particular place and their directions led you down a dark road that appeared to go nowhere? Or, you received instructions on how to do something and half way through the process you were more confused than when you initially started? These scenarios caused you to question if the instructions or directions were correct. Therefore, as a result you decided not to complete the full set of instructions and you did not follow through. Following through with the proper directions or instructions without seeing any preconceived markers along the process will have you second guessing yourself, even though you have not completed the process.

The Journey of Boundless Faith

Boundless FaithI would like for you to take a few minutes and imagine yourself on a journey…a trail through an unknown country or land in which you are unfamiliar. The terrain is dissimilar from what you are accustomed to, the people are nameless strangers, and you have no prior experience or tutoring to help you cope with trying to find your way. You are aware of your own apprehensions, but you are also conscious of your personal desires. All you have on this journey is YOU and that inner voice that you have not been acquainted with. Does this sound familiar? Maybe it does…and somehow you cannot quite put your finger on why this scenario is like déjà vu.

Let me help you understand this development. This is your life; just as it is of the almost seven billion people that populate this planet and everyone who has ever lived. Every first step in life is unfamiliar territory until you find yourself walking in circles. This is called the “Comfort Zone.”

You created this zone of comfort and air of familiarity for your life by passing by it every year. And, this self-produced trail-track has made you totally interdependent on this path. In fact, you have become extremely emotionally attached to it and it is equally just as attached to you and ever grateful that you created it. However, the life trail you produced is not a true inner desire you have to frequently traffic. You seem stuck because you would rather remain with the mundane instead of following your inner voice that will eventually take you to places where more of you, and your intangibles, may be required.

There is a journey you were meant to take. As every step has purpose, every path has opportunities along the trail of life. The unfortunate thing about our life’s journey is that we have no prior mental knowledge to relate to. All of our premonitions are abstract. Yet, you have a strong intuition—an intrinsic knowing that you are destined for something great, even if your path has led you to mediocrity.

It almost doesn’t seem fair, when you think about it, because it’s like we have been dropped on this planet with no compass, no map, and no instructions. But, is this the way it is, or is it the way we feel? People are frustrated and perplexed while running into one wall after another. And, I don’t blame them for getting frustrated. No! I don’t blame them because most people have not followed their heart. Therefore, what is real to many people is what is in their heads. They understand they are lost (head knowledge), but they can’t see that they are not lost (heart knowledge).

In reality, we have all been given a compass, a map and instructions. The compass is in your spirit, the map is in your brain cells, and the instructions are encoded into your DNA (nature). Have you ever noticed how animal and plant life need no human interference when it comes to them fulfilling their creative design?

Who teaches the fish to swim, the birds to fly, the lions to roar, or the caterpillar to go through its metamorphosis to turn into a butterfly? Each of God’s creation has a natural propensity to follow their internal genetic coding. Therefore, flight is placed into birds, the ability to swim is crammed-packed into the fishes, and the lions know habitually how to roar. Human beings were created after the similitude of God and therefore we have been given the power of choice or will. Our choices, when we follow our hearts, are what lead us to do great things, or to achieve mediocre things because we follow our minds.

There are hidden clues and treasures along life’s pathway which are concealed just for you to discover. Once you discover these remarkable gems, you are to learn why you were given them. If you can discover the ‘why’ to what it is you are suppose to know, then the ‘how’ will become easy to perform! You will turn problems into products, you will honor time, not money, and you will be able to see how wealth is hiding behind what you are afraid to do.

People usually apply fear rather than faith when it comes to living a successful life. To reach your potential is an effortless accomplishment when you learn to live your life according to the principles of faith. Ordinary people with faith can pull off extraordinary accomplishments.

Start your journey of boundless faith, today!

You Already Have What It Takes To…

You Already Have It
You Can Leap Beyond Your Obstacles

Do you feel like you are drowning in a sea of the same routine in life? Have you ever stayed awake at night thinking about how your life seems to be on hold? If you want more out of life, you’re going to have to change what you are doing.

What is the best investment you believe you can make that will immediately reap gigantic benefits both personally and monetarily? If your response is “in yourself”, you are absolutely correct. It’s no secret that YOU are your greatest asset. Let’s face it; you really are all that and a bag of chips.

Standing Still or Moving On

Standing Still or Moving
Standing Still or Moving On?
In February of nineteen hundred and eighty-four, I made one of the most important decisions of my life. I decided to walk away, and never return, from a people who were generally pessimistic. After careful consideration, I felt I had no choice but to walk away from those who had an unproductive philosophy that kept me struggling and mystified. Only then, was I able to comprehend the length, breadth, and height of my decision. If you have a desire to achieve anything of significance, you have to disallow your life to be circumscribed by people who are stuck in mediocrity and have no desire to move beyond it. They may be good people; they are just not good for you.
