In the Eyes of a Winner

In the Eyes of a Winner

There is no doubt that we all want to be winners and in all actuality we are. However, when life throws us a curve ball our self importance or significance could become a bit skewed. I am not referring to the way we think of ourselves compared to man but the way God views us; through His loving eyes. In the eyes of God we are winners; we are His children and each of us has a purpose.

I know after my divorce I felt more like a failure than a winner. I even addressed it with the article, “Am I a Failure”.

With the New Year approaching it is as good a time as any to change the way you think about yourself. New Year’s resolutions are always being made only to be broken. So might I suggest that you take this time to truly set some short-term goals that you are going to keep and may one of those be that you are a winner?

No matter what goal you set for yourself, whether it is to lose weight, quit smoking, or simply be a better person in order to be successful you need to have self-confidence and you can’t do that if you are beating yourself up from mistakes of the past.

Take this time to forgive yourself and view yourself in a new light. Setting new goals is challenging and four out of five people will likely set some form of goal as a New Year’s resolution, sadly, thirty percent won’t make it past January. Don’t let this happen to you; goals are meant to be achieved and you will improve the quality of your life if you do so.
