“Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way.”
(Psalm 119:37, NKJV)
Navigating The Seas of Life
Every one of us has an opportunity. It doesn’t matter where we live on the planet, how much money we have, how educated we are, how athletic. The opportunity is everywhere, we just need to grab it, and hold on.
The internet and digital products and marketing are making people money every single day. That’s what I want, and that’s what I want for others to.
In order for us to get there though, we have to be able to manage our time effectively. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and if we can focus our thoughts and our energies on a singular goal, such as a successful online business, the odds are in our favor that He will provide nudges at just the right time to help us in our quest.
Not only do we need to stay focused on what’s important, we also need to actively ignore almost all negative thoughts and energy whenever possible. Sometimes, we even have to ignore certain people if we want to acheive the victories we know we can attain.
We need to be able to see that all of the different options that life throws at us need to be navigated, like a ship in rough seas. If we can see the lighthouse, we can get there, but we have to stay focused on it. Some things that happen in our daily lives can just be entirely ignored, without an extra thought or emotion, in order to stay focused. Many are simply distractions, mindless activities that will make you lose course.
A lot of mental energy and time is consumed with social media, particularly with trying to explain your opinion to others, or gain their approval in one way or another. If we are worrying about anything except how to get our ship to the lighthouse, then we’re wasting valuable resources that should be directed towards our goals. Turn away from those distractions, and stop worrying about other’s approval. The only approval that is required at the end of each day is your own.
I can’t tell you how amazing it was for me to realize that it was ok to let go, to just let some aspects of life happen without me trying to control or be involved in them at all. Now, most of life’s “drama”, rolls off of me like water on a duck’s back. I’m more centered now, and I can focus on what’s important to me and my family, and that’s making money.
For me, keeping God in my heart while focusing on my business has let me turn the corner I have so desperately been seeking in self-employment, which is to relax, and to be an an entrepreneur and a father at the same time. To know that I had the ability, and the time, to do it all, and be good at each of them. I just had to focus my efforts. I believe that making money is just a part (a very valuable part) of being able to truly live in peace and happiness every day of your life.
If you are a person who prays, here is one I came up with to ask for God’s help with my business, my family, and my life:
“Dear Lord, thank You so much for showing me my path. Thank You for thinking of me, and for placing hope in my heart each day that I can attain the good things you have planned for me. Please walk with me today, and every day, and help me to keep my focus only on the things that will help me to achieve. Please help me to see the things I should ignore for what they are. As I continue on my journey back to You, please focus my heart and my mind on the tasks I need to take to make my business, my family, and my life as good as I can in your eyes. Keep my mind focused on You today in everything I do Lord. Thank you for this life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
