Forgive And Keep Moving . . .

If you are smart, you will do four things: (1). Focus on the road ahead. By glancing in the rearview mirror instead of at what is ahead, you will definitely miss the next turn and end up in a ditch. Focus on the fact that you survived and that you have learned from the experience. God kept you around for a reason; find it and pour your life into it. (2). Stop looking for easy answers. Visit any bookstore and you will find shelves lined with titles promising ten easy steps to financial security, five trouble-free keys to success, or twelve simple strategies for health, wealth, and fulfillment  in life. I have a brainwave for you, it does not work that way. Life is hard, and deep inside we know all those simplistic approaches really do not work. However, the fact that your life is difficult does not mean that you are on the wrong path.  As a minister friend once said to me, "If you don't come face to face with the Devil sometimes, you must be going in the same direction as he." (3). Stay on your path-not everybody will go with you. You will discover that some of your closest friends are people who will never change, and they don't like those who do. Your decision to change does not mean they will do the same. Nevertheless, you should be committed to growing, expanding your knowledge and experience, and moving to the next level in life. (4). Believe in yourself - God does! When someone tells you that you will never amount to anything, smile and keep moving. God alone knows your potential, and if you're willing to trust Him and work hard, He'll help you to fulfill it. In the final analysis, success is an argument your enemies and critics can not refute.
