What do you do when things aren’t working out?

 

Here’s a question to start out the second last week of the year: “What do you do when things aren’t working out?”

For most of us, our answers might include ranting and raving, blowing off steam, crying and whining, complaining to everyone who is willing to listen … and if all of that does not work then we just might turn to God.

However, according to these beautiful, young, super cute and faithful servants of a wonderful Father, there is only ONE answer to the question.  So let’s take the cue from Dani and Dannah … and call Jesus! He will never ever fail us!

Are you saying yes when you should be saying no? Let’s change the script!

 

“The big moments in your life are made up by the little decisions you make.” ~ Lisa Nichols

So what are you telling yourself? What are you telling others? These questions stopped me in my tracks and even reminded me somehow of an admonition from my granny to never put negative words out into the environment because  our words were our truth.  Maybe if she had wrapped up her advice as nicely as Lisa Nichols does in this powerful message shared here, I may have taken her more seriously.

Today I definitely stand guilty as accused because now I am more aware that people really do believe whatever I say as my truth, even when in reality the truth may be very different. For example, they ask me if I am doing fine and I say yes. They ask me to volunteer for a project and I say yes. They ask me to sacrifice my standards and I say yes. They ask me if I’m OK with what they are saying or doing and I say yes.

How many yeses over a period of time add up and add up until an individual becomes overwhelmed and depressed? What would happen if said individual was brave and honest enough to answer NO?

Lisa’s story is powerful. As you listen ask yourself the questions I asked me: what are you really saying and is it your truth? As you try to answer always remember that it’s never too late to re-calibrate, re-set, re-group and/or re-generate … never!

Can you relate? Do you know someone guilty of always saying yes? Just a few additional questions to think about; share your answers with us. In the meantime you can also learn more about Lisa Nichols.
