Results (responses from others, and your environment)
(Your thoughts influence the emotions you feel, which in turn have a great effect on your actions. Your actions set the stage for the kind of feedback that you get from your environment and other people.)

The choice is yours, just like was Joshua’s – “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.”

Time management, moment by moment, day by day. That’s how to build your life. Same as money.
Invest in what really matters, and what will matter in the long term.
Carpe diem! Some things will always be there, but others are seasonal.
Maximize your seasons.
In life there is no platform for excuses. And in life you get what you bargain for.
You get more tired by what you don’t do that by what you actually do. Mental loads are much heavier than physical ones, and exert a greater toll on us too.
Work with God, He’s the best partner in life.
You tell your life where to go
Do your best where you’re at
You have been empowered for it
Reflect on your values, SWOT Analysis
Take necessary steps/action
Your life is largely in your hands. You can commit it to God and seek His wisdom and guidance. He loves you and loves to be a part of your life, but only if you let Him. He stands at the door and knocks. If you let Him you will dine greatly with Him now and in eternity, otherwise your life will be a waste forever. Rev. 3:20 If you want to surrender your life to God, raise your hand and we’ll pray together. THE END.
