We cannot leave our current national problems to a future generation to solve. Now is the time. Our nation, and many people and families, have serious problems. The question is, what can we DO about these problems? In this podcast, you’ll learn what’s missing in our lives, families, churches and nation – and how to find it. Listen on the Godfactor App (iTunes or Google Play) or on Godfactor.com. Share it with your friends. Leadership is not simply recognizing the problem – it’s about coming up with the solution to the problem. If not now, then when? If not you, then who? Now is the time for people around our nation to embrace the real solution for the epic problems we are facing. What is it? Listen and find out. Your life, and perhaps this nation, may turn around as a result.
No amount of the wrong solution will compensate for the absence of the right solution. Only God can fill the void that only God was made to fill.This podcast will ignite your life, and show you what we can do at this key time in America’s timeline that will make all the difference in the world.
If you want to change some things in your life, you’ve got to change some things in your life. Life is short. Time is limited. You don’t have time to dink around with the only opportunity you have this side of eternity, to make the most of who you are. In light of this, here are three suggestions to help you change your life, immediately:
1. TAKE TIME TO THINK, PRAY AND REFLECT – OFTEN. No amount of the wrong solution will compensate for the absence of the right solution. The reason why we throw wrong solutions at problems is because we fail to take time to think, pray and reflect. They are lost arts that need to be revived – not in the lives of others, but in your life, right now.
You cannot afford to go through life without taking time to think, pray and examine your own heart, thinking and actions. If you don’t take such time, you will draw wrong conclusions about the root causes for problems you are facing. This will cause you to throw the wrong solutions at your problems. The result? You will spin your wheels unnecessarily when you would otherwise soar.
Failure to diagnose the root reason behind a problem will keep you from reaching your greatest potential. You don’t have time for that. Take time to think, pray and reflect – often – because your life will positively – and immediately – change.
2. PLAN YOUR DAYS WEEKS, MONTHS AND YEARS WITH A TIME MANAGEMENT TOOL. Do you have something the rest of us don’t – an unlimited amount of time? No, you don’t, so why act like it? Time is the most precious gift we’re given because it’s limited. Once it’s gone, we won’t get any more. The hectic pace of life, with all the things that present themselves as important, demands that you steward, with resounding success, the only life you’ll ever be given. Simply put, you cannot do this without a time management tool. Even if you are retired, unemployed, a home-maker, or you find yourself with a lot of free time on your hands. You need a time management tool because with it you literally manage your life.
The issue is not time. It’s life. Are you making the most of it? If you are taking time to think, pray and reflect often (#1, above), then you will begin to discover more and more ways to make the most of your time. You’ll begin to treat your time with respect. Don’t squander the most precious asset you’ve been given, your time. Use a time management tool to squeeze the most out of your days, weeks, months and years. Someday, they’ll be gone.
3. DON’T CONFUSE THE WRONG SOLUTION FOR THE RIGHT SOLUTION. Failure to recognize the root issue of a problem will not merely get you nowhere, it can get you to the wrong place and could set you back big time. Is your problem spiritual? Then no amount of a non-spiritual solution will fix it. The truth is, many of our problems have, at their root, a spiritual issue.
We overeat, overspend, waste our time and indulge in unhealthy things all because we try to fill the “God-shaped void” in our lives with cheap substitutes. Boredom, frustration and real problems begin when we don’t fill the God-shaped void with . . . God.
CONCLUSION:You have one life, and limited time. It’s not for others to soar while you sit on the sidelines. It’s too priceless to let it be ruled by boredom, frustration and confusion. If you take time to think, pray reflect and use a time-management tool to guard and maximize the only life you’ll ever have this side of eternity, there is a much higher chance you will begin to rightly diagnose the root problems in your life. And that, my friend, is the start of all true and lasting change. Everything about you will begin to soar.
Have you taken your life for granted? Are you squeezing the most out of your days by making time to think, pray, reflect and use a time management tool? It’s time for you to soar, don’t you think?
It’s time. We cannot leave our current national problems to a future generation to solve. Right now is the time. No amount of the wrong solution will compensate for the absence of the right solution. Only God can fill the void that only God was made to fill. Leadership is not simply recognizing the problem – it’s about coming up with the solution to the problem. Our nation, and many people and families, have serious problems. The question is, what can we DO about these problems? It’s time to let God get your life, your family, your church – and this nation – together. If not now, then when? If not you, then who? Now is the time for people around our nation to embrace the real solution for the epic problems we are facing. What is it? Listen and find out. Your life, and perhaps this nation, may turn around as a result.
