I recall the old days; I meditate on all you have done; I reflect on your accomplishments. ~ Psalm 143:5
The administrator of a Facebook group asked us to ‘post our wins, no matter how small’. To start the conversation, she posted a comment on one thing that she accomplished that week. Someone followed with a accomplishment, then another. I took notice of ‘no matter how small’. Well, I did my daily blogs, I went to work every day…hmmm I had a couple of successful coaching sessions. Oh, and the magazine this published week!
The Purpose of the Post
This was not a bragging post. It was designed for the group members to focus on the positive so that we would continue to move forward.
In our last leadership meeting, our pastor Bishop Michael Curtis Jr., presented us with the Power of Positive Thinking (Barbara Frederickson, UNC). To quote the study,
“feelings of positive emotions helps you to identify more possibilities and options in your life”
“extra possibilities and options seem to translate into action”
When we don’t see large wins, it becomes easy to dismiss our smaller accomplishments. But acknowledging what God has allowed you to complete this week may be what is needed to push you towards your purpose.
Don’t wake up worrying about what you did not see accomplished. Think positive, celebrate your wins and continue to move on Purpose!
