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 in 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 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.
