What is it that motivates you to keep going? To try something new? I hate to say it, but the more I talk to other people, the more they seemed to be motivated by the wrong things. Now and days celebrities; musicians, actors, talk show hosts, pretty much anyone who has a few dollars and is put in front of the camera has become the object of attention for most. They look up to these people as if they make the world go around when in actuality a lot of the “celebrities” are just putting up a front while the camera is running anyway. In other words, people admire something that is not really real. They talk about Bentley’s and a few of them may even drive them, but you do not know what they had to go through to get that Bentley.
Instead of being motivated by what the world sees as being rich, why not change your perspective of what rich is. Rich does not have to have anything to do with money. Rich can mean happy, at peace, calm, stress free or worry free. All of which if you ask the people who have a lot of money they don’t have any of these things. See, it is very unfortunate because some people are so poor that all they have is money.
Stop looking at these people as motivation and look to God. He is the billionaire of all billionaires. He has all the money in the world, and He also has peace, joy, love, happiness and the list could go on and on. He has everything because He is God. We must stop looking to the things of the world to find what God has already placed inside of us. Be motivated by the love He has for you, His child and the plans and purposes in which He created for your life. It is so easy to be distracted by the things you see on T.V. or read about online, so stay focused. Everyone who has ever been successful at anything had to get up, get out there and just do it. They put on their pants one leg at a time just like you do. So don’t think it strange or even impossible for you to do great things in life. You are a child of the King and above all else, you have the favor of God on your life. If you keep saying to yourself there is more to life than this, you are absolutely right. There is a whole lot more to life than what you see in front of you. Shut the T.V. off, get off Facebook, and go for it. I dare you. #iDeclare #GoForIt
