One day, all the students of a sixth form college got to the huge reception of their school which leads to their classes and they saw a big notice on the door on which it was written: “Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth and causing your failure in this school passed away”. We invite you to join the funeral in a room that has been prepared in the dining hall‘.
Initially, they were all sad for the death of one of their fellow students possibly, or even one of their teachers! But after a while, they started getting curious to know who was that person who has been hindering the progress of his fellow students and even the entire school is. The excitement in the dining hall was such that security men were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: ‘Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!
One by one, the thrilled students got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it, they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin; everyone who looked inside could see themselves. In there also; a sign next to the mirror that reads: There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.
Your life does not change when your
teacher changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your colleague changes, when your school changes or the economy of your nation changes. Your life changes, when YOU make a commitment to change; when you take responsibility for things in your life and go beyond your limiting mindsets.
Examine yourself this week, watch your steps, do a thorough assessment, your God given gifts, talents and abilities and see how rich and resourceful you are. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities, failures and losses anymore. You are created to overcome them. Make a decision to be a winner, build up your confidence in God, and see yourself as an overcomer. If God be for you, no one, no situation can be against you.
