All too often I hear people say …”I’m just doing Me”, but what does that mean?
When I hear people say that it makes me wonder..Who hurt you…who betrayed your confidence…trust and value??? Because, yes being able to stand alone and withstand life’s difficulties may be a sign of resilience..but it also is a sign of unaddressed hurt.. unhealed wounds and unforgiveness..
Oh, you thought I was about to go into details about being held accountable to grow your business and brand?
Nope ..because how can you grow anything productive out of damaged soil! And the soil being your heart & mind…
Luke 6:45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. – http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke6:45&version=NLT
You’re probably wondering what does your heart have to do with your business and/or brand. since we are taught to separate emotions from business. Well I’m not talking about emotions..I’m referring to your inner man/woman (your spirit). Though you may have good intentions…good intentions never built or produced intended results without actions…and so therefore you need to be actively involved in the healing of your heart and mind.
And that’s where accountability comes into play…you are held accountable for what you allow to affect you emotionally and mentally (not the people and events that hurt you). Though you may feel they may deserve to pay…you can not spend your time and life making others pay for your hurts. That’s valuable time wasted ,and for what! God is waiting on you to trust him at his word and hold need him accountable to right your wrongs.
Romans 12:19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. – http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans12:19&version=NLT.).
But you gotta trust him first! And focus on the GREAT life you deserve and want for yourself..
SO I AM HOLDING YOU ACCOUNTABLE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN!!!!!
