It happens so often, we pray for jobs and relationships, promotions, but once we receive those blessings, it becomes common, we lose our gratefulness because it tends to be routine. That extra bonus received is not enough, that new job is too complicated, that relationship is too much work, but we were just excited and grateful, do not lose your enthusiasm, remain grateful.
It is crazy how the people who are in your circle may smile and pretend to support you but in reality they are the main ones bringing you down. Yes, they say they are happy for you but they do not want to see you doing better than they are. In the words of Trent Shelton, most of the time it is the ones you would take a bullet for, that are actually pulling the trigger. “Real situations expose fake people”. Just to get ahead in life some people will drag your name down, so that they can look good.The more successful you are the smaller your circle gets, and not everyone deserves to ride in the limo with you. Loyalty is rare, and people pretend well. The same ones that say I am praying for you, are laughing at your struggle behind closed doors.
“Surround yourself around people who won’t let your back get against the wall because they actually got your back”.

It all starts with you!
Time to cut some people——
It’s a common cliché where there’s a will there’s a way. Reminds me of something that Trent Shelton (motivational speaker) said in his last video about commitment, and its something that we see on a day-to-day basis like for example, when we want to do something, we find a way to do it, and if we don’t we’ll find an excuse. It’s easy to get caught in the moment, when we have a good idea or a new goal, we’re excited, but when we find that it’s not as easy as we thought it would be to reach it, we throw in the towel. “If you can’t stay loyal to things you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left, how can you expect to succeed in anything in life or expect to finish anything that you start?”A lot of times we let obstacles and hard work in our relationships/personal life or career cause us to give up, and not finish. Just because it is hard, does not mean it is wrong, but it means it is right, you just have to change your mind-set, and really get committed. Don’t live a life filled with incompletion, when your committed those setbacks can’t hold you back, those obstacles make you stronger, it makes you hold on tighter. Are you in it to see what happens? Or Are you going to make it happen? You have to have a champion mindset to make it happen, even when its tough. The hard work you put in will pay off as long as you stay committed and stay loyal, everything you want in life will happen as long as it is in Gods will. This goes for successful relationships, will to living for God, and your dreams, have a mind-set to make it happen.
Reminder for my readers: Yesterday is in the past, today is a new, fresh start, Take on the week with a championship mind-set, and make it happen!
“Be committed, accept no excuses, only results”
