Repositioning Yourself To The Next Level
I have said how much I love Bishop TD Jakes on numerous occasions. I still feel so blessed that I got the opportunity to see him live. I also attribute him to one of the big influences in changing my life. I recently watched a documentary with him regarding repositioning yourself throughout your life. We cannot become complacent in our lives and get stuck in ruts that always are just what feels comfortable.
You should constantly be looking ahead to where you want to go next. And just as if you are driving or planning anything else out you have to act and prepare for things that are going to happen. He stated a great example of when people state that they cannot move out from the "level" of life they are in, and the numerous excuses they give. He explained that when you were a child you had to learn to count to 10. So you may have struggled not getting the order right at first, but eventually you could proudly count from 1 to 10. Then you were pushed to count to 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100...and so on. Well if you look at it, they are all multiples of ten and you are just building on what you already know and can take baby steps of "10" to get to the next level. So place that example into your life. You work towards that next level in which you want to attain and when you are there you can't get stuck and not want more for yourself. You deserve it and are meant for greatness so step up to that next level and start at 1 again.
Now you may think you are still climbing or not sure when it is time to reposition yourself to take a step to the next level. Well as the quote above states you should look around your life and see what is being reflected back to you. Are the people in your life challenging you or are they projecting their problems and difficulties on you, which is in turn preventing you from your own happiness. Are you in a job that is not exciting you anymore or that you feel you have done all you can at that level? Well then it is time to shift gears, step up to the next level, realize your true potential and start back at 1. There is no limit of how high you can climb in your life. You are the only one who will limit yourself. If you are not in the position you want to be in life in any area, then it is time to reposition yourself!
