We all want to make it to where we are going. And we want to get there in the quickest time ever. Many times we are so eager to make it; we take the easiest route in pursuit of the Promise. Whether it’s in the area of wealth, health, career achievements, stardom, a trip, making a family of our own or whatever else we may desire, we want it now and we want it fast. What we forget so many times is that there is a “PROCESS that LEADS to the PROMISE.”
How you handle the process makes the world of difference in how your progress goes on your way to Promise. If we prepare as much as possible, it makes the bumps easier to handle during the process but it won’t stop the bumps from appearing. We can’t avoid certain situations, but our perspective can sure shape our responses.
I can now say I am grateful for when I got fired. At the time, there was a lot of shame and bitterness and a bruised ego, however, I can now say that I am thankful for it; and every other time I was dumped or rejected or lost someone. I have experienced the feeling of loneliness, hurt, anger, rejection and bitterness. I am thankful for the difficult situations and/or what seems unfair. As I have now come to realize all of the pain and what appeared negative at the time was simply part of the Process leading to the Promise of who I am becoming…which I am loving!
The process allows us to build character which helps us to appreciate and welcome the Promise even more. I’m on my way to the Promise…..
