“For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that
has overcome the world, even our faith” [1 John 5:4]
Abundant living is founded upon how you think—your attitude will determine the outcome of your day. Positive thinking bears the fruit of ‘can do’ ‘overcoming’ life.
We’ve all heard about the bumblebee that should not be able to fly because the size, weight, and shape of its body in relationship to its wingspread makes flying aerodynamically impossible. But someone forgot to tell the bumblebee—so the bumblebee flies!
In his book, “ Developing the Leaders Around You” John Maxwell says, “ This no-limit mind-set allows a person to start each day with a positive disposition, as did an elevator operator I once read about. One Monday morning, in a full elevator, the man began humming a tune. One passenger, irritated by the man’s mood, snapped, “What are you so happy about?” “Well sir,” replied the operator happily, “I ain’t never lived this day before,”
Not only does the future look bright when the attitude is right, but the present is much more enjoyable too. The positive person understands that the journey is as enjoyable as the destination. Think of attitude like this:
It is the advance man of our true selves–It’s roots are inward but its fruit is outward
It is our best friend or our worst enemy–It is more honest and more consistent than our words.
It is never content until it is expressed–It is a thing that draws people to us or repels them.
It is the librarian of our past–It is the speaker of our present– It is the prophet of our future.
