Leave Your Old Luggage Behind

“… one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
We’re into the second week of the New Year. How are your goals coming along? Does this year look any different than last year so far? Regardless of whether you have seen a big change or not, don’t get discouraged. Just because the calendar changed to a new year doesn’t mean your life has changed yet. True transformation takes time.
One thing I’ve had to challenge myself to do is not fall back into last year’s habits that were unproductive and unprofitable. Just like old luggage, things that are comfortable and familiar are often hard to let go of. But just like a piece of luggage with a hole in it, if you try to carry new ideas, opportunities, and resources using your old way of doing things into this new year, you will eventually lose them. And then you’ll end up repeating the same unfulfilling year just with a different number at the end of the date.
Getting to your next level in business or life is not an overnight process. Radical results may not come immediately, but if you keep doing the right things, the right things will happen for you. A fresh commitment to consistency will crush complacency and catapult you to success.
Happy New You!

Are you aware that up to 97% of Christians surveyed disclose that they don’t hear sermons or messages that specifically connect their work life to their spiritual life? Are you one of them? If so, Dream B.I.G. in 3D will be the missing link for you to activate your gifts, find your niche, and fulfill God’s calling for you in the workplace.
