Victorious Mindset

How It All Began

It is 7:15 a.m and I am on my way to work. I make a coffee stop at a popular fast food chain. The weather is fairly mild. However, there is no sunshine just clouds.

I don’t know if it is the weather but today I wished I could stay home in the bed. It was tough getting up this morning. I got up on time but found myself getting dressed only to lie down for an additional 10 to 15 mins because I was so tired this morning.

I don’t know how you feel but this is my story. I didn’t wake up beaming with joy, I didn’t wake up chipper but my mood was somber, reflective and ungrateful.

You know the irony of it all was I felt totally different yesterday. I was motivated, eager and overjoyed by life but some how today I felt the opposite way. Today I felt repugnant, recalcitrant and self reflective.

Wow what a difference a few hours can make in ourlives.

But before I go down the road of selfpitty and woe is me Blvd…I caught myself. I restrained my mind from controlling my feelings and had to put some things into perspective.

If you didn’t know it proper perspective is so important for one trying to see life in focus. Whenever, I find my perspective skewed I but always seem to make improper judgments about things around. So I work hard to put life and situations in proper perspective.

The day Before I was on fire!

Yes, the day before I was on fire for God. I had just released to my listeners (who I am so appreciative of) a podcast episod entitled, “Building The Mind Of Victory.”

And the reason why I share this is I must be accountable to live the advice I give to others. This is a trait I see in myself and some people that I come in contact with. We can give everyone around us life saving advice but when it comes to us we won’t follow our own advice.

This can be a troubling character trait, not practicing what we preach. It is like the person that floods your internet feed with their content but never take time to read someone else’s post. This type of behavior smells and it stinks.

So, I made up in my mind today while sitting at my desk that I must have the mind of victory. I purposed in my heart that depression, selfpitty and doubt would not control me. I purposed in my heart that I would practice what I preached.

Just because doubt and despair speaks doesn’t mean we have to listen or follow.

So I am writing this to hopefully encourage someone today that is fighting the voices around them to stand. You control your mind, feelings and behavior.

Make a choice today to have a victorious mindset.

Blessing,

Mike Anthoni

What Living On Purpose Is Really All About

This was a great post.  Bless God for 200 followers that support this blog!!!  

But let’s talk about living on purpose.  The author said,This is when you wake up every morning, knowing that you are on the path where you want to be, no matter what others might say.

To know how to live on purpose, you need to know the missing piece that will complete the puzzle. What is this piece? It is discovering that your ultimate purpose is to give, not to get.”

I thought this was a great article.  This post helped to put some things in order on how to live on purpose.

Thanks for this good info I might talk a bit about this on my next podcast Making An Impact Christian Podcast Show. 

Thank so much please check out this blog Smiles and Hugs.

I Don’t Want To Wag My Tale. Bring Back Sentiment To Blogging.

 Maybe I am the only one that feels this way about the blogosphere but blogging has become more and more mechanical and losing it’s finest that made it so charmingly delightful.

I can’t place my finger on the moment where blogging which was so mysterious and intriguing lost it inability to connect with the commoner but in my opinion it has left us.

The commoner who loves to read about vacations and view photos of and places, family and friends.  The commoner who loves to check and scan through the reader for human moments….

And you know sometimes, I feel like the consumer who has just realized that the secretary that answered the phone has just been replaced by an automated system.😲😲😒😒😭😭

UGH….COME On Man…Can I speak to a human

Important is the human touch in the life of a child.  Katherine Harmon wrote an article in Scientific American and she said, 

The stark institutional isolation prevalent in the orphanages of some countries might have mostly melted away decades ago, but many babies and young children all over the world still grow up in environments where touch and emotional engagement are lacking. Many children who have not had ample physical and emotional attention are at higher risk for behavioral, emotional and social problems as they grow up. 

And I believe important is the human touch in the life of a blog and a successful blogosphere . 

However, frighteningly enough this is how I feel concerning the blogosphere today. We have become so self absorbed and mechanical in our interactions towards posting our great creations that we have lost that human element.

The blog reader has become like an orphanage that has lost its ability to interact with its children in order to preserve the human touch.

I have gone on other sites only to witness a dumping ground for blogs and videos.  People have become so consumed by their own self imaged that they have forgotten the blog community.

 Does anyone really read other people’s blogs anymore? Or do we just drop off and walk away never to think of anyone else’s plight? Just something to think about! Hmm…what could it be?

πŸ€”πŸ€”

The Three Commandments Of Blogging:

  1. Don’t write blogs you aren’t willing to read.
  2. Be considerate to your readers and don’t write a book.
  3. Share your platform and the blogs you love with others.

    So in conclusion, we need to bring back community in blogging.  Don’t just blog for what you can get out of it! Don’t just be mechanical but do unto others as you would have them to do unto you.

    There is nothing wrong with self promotion…I love it but if you are the only general that can make for a very lonely existence.
