You were born to win. Once you come to terms with that, the life you were meant to live will unfold before your eyes. You can achieve what you believe and the first place to start is conceiving it in your mind.

Your thought pattern gives birth to the life you were destined to live. You get to decide how you are going to live out the rest of your life. You have been predestined for greatness and now is the time to go to the next level, leaving a legacy for those who come behind you. Every new thought you have can bring about a new reality.

When you think positive thoughts, you can hear the call of wisdom. Wisdom is the pathway to lasting happiness. It is precious and a tree of life if you take hold of it. Be open to the wisdom of God because there is absolute security in it.

Give your energy to that which matters the most. Life can be full of distractions and getting wrapped up in the obstacles and barriers can deplete your soul. It is not the action of falling down that is the problem, but the inaction of not getting back up and on track that will leave you with feelings of inadequacy.

Your tongue is the rudder of your life. Its sole purpose is to steer you in the direction of your destiny. Your words are connected to what you have and what you experience. It has the power to do two major things: direct where you go and destroy what you have. Use your words to call forth good things. Choose your words wisely.

Choose to view yourself as an adventurer on a quest to finding your talents, gifts and purpose. When you decide to seek out your destiny, the places you wind up are endless. Dream and dream big knowing your livelihood depends on it.

Every place you have landed has been a place for learning something that pushes you closer to your purpose. There are times when you will run into detours and times when you must make some adjustments, but always remember the goal. You must remember the destination.

You don’t have to do everything. All you have to do is what God put you on this earth to do. Be persistent and willing to learn. Be patient; if not, you may miss something very important. Pursuing your destiny will require you to take risks. Be fearless and know that all things are possible.

Always examine your heart. What story is it telling you? What makes it sad? What makes it happy? Don’t ever give in to your fears.

Have an attitude of joy and thanksgiving for it brings healing and freedom. Take time to smell the roses and be bold enough to take life by the horns and take it on the ride of your life.
