The ability to grow will come with purposeful practice!
This not only applies to a positive outcome, it's a truth in the negative context as well. What I think and how I practice my daily routines determines my outcomes. If I choose to laze around the house and become imbedded into the sofa, the results will reflect that purposeful practice. I will grow lazy, ineffective, and a burden on others.
Should I choose to live a purpose driven life, one of significance, the results will also follow. This leads me back to a witty Tim Marks quote, "The harder I work, the luckier I get." God certainly rewards persistence. So as a routine after I wake, I do my Bible study, read my positive affirmation statement, write my blog, and face my day with specific intent aimed at a positive outcome. It's a purposeful practice bound to bring a positive outcome!
I truly think a day needs to begin with a positive affirmation statement. We all need to remind ourselves what our stated goal is, and that we are capable of achieving whatever we set our minds to accomplish. Why not first thing in the morning? What better time than the onset of a new day to review what we wish to accomplish?
