“Stuck on Stubborn”

Have you ever tried to help someone who stubbornly refuses your assistance? Isn’t this frustrating to know that deep down in your heart you are trying to help someone and they just absolutely are not trying to hear a word you are saying? Sometimes you just can’t help someone who is “stuck on stubborn”, but at least you can put forth the effort to try. Even though they may have given up on everything, you should not give up on them. Keep trying because eventually these people who are “stuck” will see the light and you will break through their “stubbornness”. Believe me, once this breakthrough happens, the person you have just helped will be thankful you did.

“Inspiration and motivation comes from many places”

Have you ever been inspired or motivated by something simple?  I have been many times.  Sometimes just the smallest thing can set things into action that lead to other things that are positive, and all you need is just a little inspiration and/or motivation.

Even when things are negative around you it is still possible to be positively inspired or motivated.  “From our deepest and darkest despair, comes our greatest achievement.” 

Sometimes when we find ourselves at the bottom of the pit it is possible from that bottom to achieve our greatest glory.  When we are faced with a mountain to overcome, it is easy to just put our head down and quit.  But when your back is against the wall and you feel the weight of the world is on your shoulders, you can achieve your greatest success with just a little inspiration and motivation.

Being faced with adversity or an overwhelming obstacle can be enough to ignite a spark in you that gets your adrenaline flowing to pick yourself up, and get after it to climb that mountain.

Join the conversation.  What inspires and motivates you when faced with adversity?

“If you seek PERFECTION in everything, you will achieve it in nothing”

How many times have you moved something around just after you put it there looking for that perfect angle? How often do you write something down, erase it, and re-write it 100 times until it is perfect? Have you changed clothes, re-applied your makeup, or fixed your hair so many times in the morning and just can’t get it right? It is possible that you could be obsessed with PERFECTIONISM.

If you get bent out of shape just because something is not perfect, you will find yourself on an emotional roller-coaster ride that will lead you nowhere. There is nothing wrong with the imperfections in life. They are there to remind us that nobody is more perfect than God. The bible has taught us that nobody is perfect. ‘For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God’ (Rom 3:23).

This verse reminds us that everyone has sinned and falls short of the glory of God. But even though we are imperfect, God loves us just the same no matter what we do. Below are some tips that will help you overcome PERFECTIONISM.

• Become aware of your tendencies
• See the positive, not the negative
• Set achievable goals/expectations
• Learn to laugh and don’t let anyone steal your joy
• Study successful people
• Get over yourself
• Understand that rejection is not the end
• Understand that constructive criticism is not meant to destroy you, but help you, from another perspective
• Acknowledge your achievements instead of failures (the 80/20 rule)
• Quit comparing yourself to others
• Enjoy the journey, instead of complaining about the path
• Love yourself and what you do

These are just a few. Join the conversation and let me know what tips you have to OVERCOME PERFECTIONISM.
