“Don’t beat yourself you – build yourself up!” Author and speaker, Debra Susan Bowman
You can never beat yourself to a better you. You can never beat yourself up to the next level. You can’t beat yourself to victory. You can never make yourself feel better or do better by beating yourself up. Beating yourself up is a bad habit you can break. From now on when something goes wrong, and if you are in the battle to win, something will always be going wrong, and you are tempted to beat yourself up, just declare NO!
Instead of beating yourself up, build yourself up. Say good things to yourself about yourself, even when no one else will. Look in the mirror and say, regardless of what’s going wrong in your life; I AM AWESOME! I CAN DO IT! I CAN MAKE IT! I WILL BE HAPPY AND POSITIVE! GOD WILL SHOW ME THE WAY! I WILL DISCOVER A NEW SOLUTION I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE BECAUSE I HAVE GOD WITH ME AND GOD AND I MAKE A MAJORITY!
You can think yourself to a new life and a new life for your grandchildren and it all starts by thinking strong, powerful, positive thoughts about who you are and what you can do. You can’t build up your grandchildren if you refuse to build up yourself. King David had some really bad stuff happen to him. He suffered a big defeat and everyone turned against him. But the Word says when everyone was against him he went off by himself and build himself up. Then he came back, regained everyone’s confidence, fought for his family and won one of the biggest victories he ever won. (1 Samuel 30:4-6)
Build yourself up today. Your next biggest victory just might depend on it.
