Dealing With Doubt
This question came in from last week’s Success 2.0 Webcast.
“Did you have a moment where you had a doubt about your recovery? If so, how long did you allow yourself that moment of doubt before you picked yourself up to make your journey back up?” Lauri
Speaking with Dad I can tell you he never had a doubt about his recovery. He has always believed and taught that there is no point in worrying about what you cannot control. The reality is all you really can do is accept the facts of the situation you are in, and then determine to focus on what you can do. You can choose to respond rather than react. You can choose to do something that will make your situation better. You can choose to look for a new way of getting done what you really want to get done.
I think one of the secrets that Dad “discovered” years ago is that true success is not measured by a “worldly” standard, but by a spiritual standard. Are you doing everything you can with everything you have? Are you honoring Him in your thoughts and actions? If you can answer yes to these two questions, then you have no reason to have doubts or worries. But, if you get focused on what you can’t do, or what could happen, then you take your eyes off of Him, and then all you can do is worry and doubt.
