You are the one of the first to read an excerpt from my new book. I’m in the midst of writing it and I was too excited too wait (as writing a book is like climbing everest but I am determined to write it all in a month).
How do you build a solid foundation?
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who build his house on the rock. And the rain fell and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it – Matthew 24:2
The only thing you can ever change in life – as I have found this out several times – is YOU!
Now as I said before you are not broken so you don’t need fixing but what you do need to do is to discover who you really are. In this chapter I will bring to light why you don’t know who you are and what is hampering you being the person you are. That’s sounds like a contradiction but go with me and read this chapter.
If we try and change circumstances and other people it always leads to us feeling angry and anxious because we are out of control. We simply can’t do it and that is why thinking positively about a situation or a person will help immensely.
But we find ourselves in places or being around people that we don’t actually want to be around and thus knowing what are likes and dislikes are is going to really build a firm foundation for the journey called “life”.
When I was writing this chapter I remembered the song I sung at Sunday School, the man who built his house upon the rock and hence the quote from the bible at the beginning of this chapter.
I am not at all religious but I felt that this was a great analogy to use and this is what this chapter is all about creating a firm foundation as you will be strong enough to face anything and with that solid foundation you build a successful life on top (whatever success means to you).
How can you build your solid foundation? What does that mean to you?
I hope you enjoyed a sneaky peak at what I am writing. I would love your comments.
Enjoy – until next time when I will share even more of my book.
