Have you ever come to the realization that you are underachieving? Perhaps you don’t believe you can do better. Or maybe you do know, but you simply don’t try. Who knows why? It’s probably a different reason for everyone, but the result is the same. I believe most of us can do much more than we have done and perhaps more than we think possible. So let’s quit underachieving and start living to our full potential.
Maybe it’s time to get ignited again. Find a new interest to re-energize. Try new ways of doing things to renew interest. Make ourselves accountable to someone who will keep us motivated. We need new confidence, new reasons for doing and being. One good way to do this is to encourage others in their endeavors. As we build up those around us, we might just find ourselves being edified. As we give to others, we receive in return.
In the Book of Proverbs, King Solomon said that “death and life are in the power of the tongue”. What kind of language do we use on a daily basis? Are we speaking words that keep us from achieving our potential? Cultivate positive thoughts and you will speak positive words that will bring new life. If we develop the habit of daily affirming ourselves and others, we will aspire to better things.
Jesus said He came to give us life more abundant. Let’s take Him at His word. Let’s live fully now so we have no regrets when we stand before Him. No more underachieving.
Reach for the sky!
I hope this has been an encouragement to you to take a step of faith and do what you think you cannot do. Give it a try. When you reach for the sky, you may not arrive in the upper heavens, but you will certainly reach a higher level than if your hands are hanging down in discouragement or complacency.
As 2019 approaches, let’s agree to reach higher in the new year than we have ever tried before. Let’s make this coming year the best we have ever had.
