Be Single Minded (1)

‘Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do’ James 1:8 NIV

The Bible says, ‘…because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind…. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. ’(vv. 6-8 NIV).

Peter Marshall, former chaplain to the U.S. Senate, prayed,

‘Give us clear vision that we may know where to stand, and what to stand for.’

A dream that isn’t clear won’t help you get anywhere. Some questions that help: What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to contribute?
Who do you want to become? In other words, what does success look like for you?

If you don’t define IT, you won’t be able to achieve IT.

Most people don’t get what they want because they don’t know what they want. They haven’t defined their dream in clear and compelling detail.

One author writes:

‘The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want! Instead of saying, “I want to lose weight,” say, “I will weigh 125 pounds by June 1.” Instead of saying, “I want to get out of debt,” say, “I will pay off all credit card balances by December 31”. Instead of saying, “I need to improve my leadership,” say, “I will read one leadership book every month.”

Being specific doesn’t necessarily mean having every little detail thought out before you move forward. But your main goal should be clear.

The rest will unfold as you move forward, making adjustments as you go.’ The question you need to answer is, ‘Am I single minded?’

 

What now?
Get serious and don’t procrastinate in defining your dream in a sentence. Take the time in checking your heart…‘Am I single minded?’ Now is the time to do so.
