 Ten Things Worth Knowing.


1.   First Base.

  • Denial, blame and resentment will cause you to live in a place of confusion and impotence.
  • You cannot change you life for the better if you don’t understand the one you are living now.
  • Acceptance of where you are now is the launching pad to where you want to go.
  • Vision and hope for a better life will fuel and overcome the pain of change.

2.   Three Types of People.

  • Those who don’t know what is happening.
  • Those who look at what is happening.
  • Those who make things happen… because they understand what is happening.
  • So ... 'Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established'. Proverbs 16:3

3.  Reality.

  • Your reality is governed by your perception.
  • Your perception has been formed by your experiences.
  • Your reality has been passed through your perception filter before you decide it's the truth..
  • Your truth is only what seems truth to you.
  • God’s truth is The Truth and is our benchmark for successful living..

4.   Your Experience.

  • Reality trained by perception creates your experience of life.
  • Real truth requires taking responsibility and bypassing your perception filter.

  • A bad start in life was not your choice but a better future can be.

5.   Action.

  • Knowledge fuels the desire for change.
  • Knowledge by itself is useless.
  • Change requires your action.
  • Dreams only become reality when knowledge is harnessed to action.
  • Fearing to instigate action will leave you standing at the door of your destiny.

6.   Damage Control.

  • We are all a work in progress.
  • We will never be fully operational on our own resources.
  • We manage life with good decisions... there is no life cure.
  • Expectations for yourself will govern what you have or don’t have.

7.   Do Unto Others.

  • How we treat others teaches them how to treat us.

8.   Forgiveness Is A Life Style.

  • Forgiving puts you in a position of leadership.
  • It is impossible to live a peaceful life with a chip on your shoulder.
  • Unforgiveness is a dark room where negatives are developed.

  • Forgiving opens the doors to reconciliation.

9.   You Are Valuable.

  • Separate the ‘who’ from the ‘do’.
  • You are not what you do, good or bad.
  • Value is who you are you don’t have to earn it John 3:16.
  • Purpose is important but it is not who you are.

10.  The Main Thing.

  • Good relationships are not your source of life but are the expression of it.
  • Your capabilities are a gift, not your source or reason for purpose.
  • Acceptance should not have to be earned as it is given.
  • Your fulfilment will only be completely satisfied when you the created are connected with the Creator and understand why He created you.
  • What is seen is only temporary... this life is a temporary experience.
  • What is unseen is eternal, we are spiritual beings with an eternal journey to experience.
  • Eternal life was designed to contain your destiny, purpose, acceptance and mostly love.
  • Fulfilment of this starts from the day you are reconciled with your Father in heaven.
  • Jesus Christ is the only way we have been given for us to reach The Father.
