10 Principles for 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael Wright @ 3:58 pm

The following principles are taken from a devotional which appeared November 19, 2006 in The Word for You Today. This list has really been helpful to me and I wanted to share with anyone else reading my blog!

“And it was very good.” – Genesis 1:31, NIV

  1. Never think or speak negatively about yourself, which puts you in disagreement with God.
  2. Meditate on your God-given strengths and learn to encourage yourself, for much of the time nobody else will.
  3. Don’t compare yourself to anybody else. You’re unique, one of a kind, an original. So don’t settle for being a copy.
  4. Focus on your potential, not your limitations. Remember, God lives in you!
  5. Find what you like to do, do well, and strive to do it with excellence.
  6. Have the courage to be different. Be a God pleaser, not a people pleaser.
  7. Learn to handle criticism. Let it develop you instead of discourage you.
  8. Determine your own worth instead of letting others do it for you. They’ll shortchange you!
  9. Keep your shortcomings in perspective – you’re still a work in progress.
  10. Focus daily on your greatest source of confidence – the God who lives in you!

Happy New Year!
