Faith Believe Positive Thinking Affirmations
I want to share a personal story about the power of having faith and believing in your positive thinking along with adding affirmations to it all to reach your goals and change your life.
If you don't know me, I love fitness! I became passionate about helping others through my own struggles. So I decided to become a personal trainer and teach group fitness classes. Being a fitness coach wasn't enough for me, I wanted to do more.
Here is the story. We all know the job market is struggling right now. People are losing jobs. Back in November, I was praying, hoping, and looking for a job in a fitness center. I haven't finished my certification to train but I wanted to put my foot in the door.
I remember like it was today, I was looking at the Internet and I was at the website of the fitness center in my town that I wanted to work at, I said to myself it doesn't hurt to send them an email and introduce yourself. I did just that.....I remember I wrote a short message ( I didn't know who was going to get that message because it was a contact us type of form ) but in this message I wrote I had several years of customer services experience and that I was studying to become a personal trainer, that I taught a group fitness class - basically I reached out and say I was available to start at any position that they might have.
To my surprise (I didn't know) I got a reply the next day that they were hiring a weekend assistant manager...I was so happy. Of course they wanted to interview me.
Well, this was Friday, when I got the reply...to make a long story short...I went by the fitness center on Monday, had a interview with the billing manager. I went to my second interview on Wednesday, with the night manager. About 30 minutes later, I got the call that I got the job. GREAT, right...Well let me tell you things that happen before all this went down.
Taking it back to early in 2010, when everyone was losing their jobs. I know because I had lost my job in 2008, when everything started going down hill.
I would pray and ask God to help me land a job in a fitness center. I'd pray but I wasn't putting my thoughts into action having "faith" or "believing" that positive things to happen in my life. Why? Because sometimes we listen to much to others whom offer negative advice, negative suggestions!
So what did I do? Early that year...I started to "self-help" my thoughts! I have learn that you have to believe that positive things will happen in your life. Remove all that negative junk from your thoughts, from your mouth. Remember I've said "Words Have Power", what are you speaking? Speak blessings into your life. Speak good things all the time. I know this world can be tough. Believe me I know!! But I started having a bigger type of faith. Let's face it, I believe in Christ. The King of Kings, I am His child! Why wouldn't good things happen to me!
Well as I stated, I stopped listening to negative words...replace my thought with POSITIVE Thoughts! I kept believing! Don't let anyone put you down. Put your dreams down. Put your goals down! Keep you from believing that good things will come to you. I don't want to sound like I'm preaching but I've learned so much from helping myself learn that we have to change our mindset!
I would recommend that if you are having trouble with believing or having positive thoughts...do alittle self-help audio listening. My iPod is full of positive selp-help audio. I love it!
Remember the bible says "Ask & You shall receive! God wants to pour His blessings down to us BUT we have to Believe!!
Well, like I said...I got the job in less than a week...during this time I had people in my life offering negative vibes. But I refuse to listen and let that take my mind off my Positive Thinking!!
" No problem can ever be bigger than me, as I have my biggest GOD with me to solve that."
