I've been working through some business training the past few months. These quotes from the book (affiliate link) Gameplan by Sarah Harnisch are SO inspirational to me. I think it's pretty cool that they really can apply to all aspects of life too--not just business. So here is some encouragement for you today. I made these because I need these constant reminders. Hoping that by keeping these in front of my face every day, I'll remember them and apply them to my life.
Every time I hear this phrase, I start thinking about the Toby Mac song, Speak Life, in fact those words start rolling around in my head. But really it's just so true! Speak life over yourself, not death. Be positive and optimistic. Words have the power to change your life or the lives of others. What are you using your words for?
I think at some point, everyone falls into the comparison trap. I had so much trouble with this in high school and college. Now I struggle with mommy comparison, or even worse, I compare my homeschool everyone else's homeschool. This reminder is especially for ME. Stop comparing yourself to others! You are where God wants you to be at this point in your life. He will equip you for what He wants you to accomplish, but you have got to stop comparing yourself with others and accept where you are. Improve areas that need to be improved. Most importantly, be you, don't try to be someone else.
So true! Anything done in our own power becomes pretty useless. I've been working on this aspect of my life too. I need constant reminders to ask God for favor over not only my business but also over my home, my family, and my talents.
