Three Things You Must Activate In Your Life

Three Things You Must Activate In Your Life
March 12, 2010 Neil Kennedy

1. Your Thoughts

“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” – Solomon

The battlefield is in your mind. Your thoughts are powerful. In fact, God can do nothing in you beyond your belief system. Everything is possible for the man who believes. We often establish fences that keep us out of areas of the unknown.

For example, science in the past said that man is incapable of breaking the four minute mile. That was until May 6, 1954, when Roger Bannister ran a mile in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds. Today, thousands run under the 4 minute barrier. One man broke the barrier of a universally held belief system.

Two very important questions that you should consider:

  • What are you doing today that you once thought was impossible?
  • What are you not doing today because you think that it is impossible?

2. Your Words

“From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things.” – Solomon

Men love to talk about the things the things they are passionate about. Yet, very few men understand the gravity of their words. Your words have power. Your words reveal your secrets.  If you don’t understand this powerful truth, consider the impact of the words that you speak to your wife and children. Your words literally mold them into what you say over them.

Two very important questions that you should consider:

  • What words do I exclude from my vocabulary?
  • What words will I include in my vocabulary?

3. Your Relationships

“The man who walks with wise men becomes wise himself.” – Solomon

Relationships are about proximity. You should know who is in your “success-zone”. What books are your currently reading? What television shows are you entertained by? What conversations are your involved in? What jokes do you listen to?

I’m a private person, yet I have very transparent conversations. Those with whom I dialogue know that I am very open to discuss matters but I am also very selective in what I will say. I’ve learned that proximity governs most of my life.

I was speaking with a man concerning the unfaithfulness of a mutual friend. I said, “I don’t understand how a man allows the proximity of a woman to enter his life for him to cross the line for adultery.” Somehow, the man opened his life for the relationship.

Two very important questions that you should consider:

  • Who is currently in my life that I should avoid?
  • Who is not in my life that I should invite?

    Sometimes these are things we overlook as we are focused on other priorities in our lives. Thanks for sharing!

    Great questions in the point on relationships–if we keep inviting the type of people that should be in our lives–then there won’t be room for the people that should not be there.
