Is it safe to say that everyone listening right now agrees that we all want to achieve our goals? I know I do. Personally, I’m a goal setter, sometimes I do it subconsciously but I definitely set goals. Now, we all probably also know that there are many impediments to achieving those goals, or certain impediments that will always stand in our way. Well, for the next six episodes Pastor Harris will touch on one of these impediments each episode and help us address this head-on, and put us on a trajectory of personal success.
So let me introduce the first of these six impediments Pastor Harris will touch on in this first episode. One of the most devastating obstacles is simply the way we see ourselves. You see those that see themselves negatively rarely if ever achieve success in life. More often than not, a negative self-image usually developed early in life. It could start with something like being the last chosen to be on a team, doesn't really matter what sport it was, those who are the last to be chosen often grow up thinking they are not athletic. This is NOT based on facts, it is based instead on what other people think of them. Some people with negative self-images made low grades in school, therefore they grew up thinking of themselves as backward.
I think the point Pastor Harris will be making is this. Until we come to an authentic and unclouded idea of who we are until we cease to allow our identities to be a reflection of the opinion of others we will live our lives in a fashion that will lead us to a life of defeat and not a life of success.
