Wild Things! No Self Pity

Proverbs 17:22 – A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Let’s get into it. Mindful motivation! We all have problems; we all have excuses, but don’t get upset when the world moves without you! LISTEN…THIS WORLD won’t WAIT ON YOUR PROBLEMS! Mission up, Vision up, and Stand up!

Just because your issue may be understandable doesn’t mean a bad attitude is acceptable!

Suppose you are incapable right now, for whatever reason…that’s ok! We all have to hit the bench from time to time..take a knee, or a water break…but remain professional…Step aside and don’t hurt the Team, Family, Friends, and or Colleagues with your absence! If you can’t play, that’s ok, but don’t you want your team to win the game still!!!??

Don’t allow your pride to catch your death! If you have to tap out of the battle to give yourself the time to win the war! Don’t pick an attitude; don’t catch feelings, don’t hurt the effort! If you know, you are not performing, and the coach won’t bench you, take yourself out of the play for the team. This does not mean you are out of the game!

Remember…complaining about yesterday will never make tomorrow any better!!!


Everyone has problems, issues, worries, and fears…remember…there is always someone who has less than you, more difficulties, worries, troubles, and complications than you…NOT THAT THIS LESSONS YOUR AFFLICTIONS!, However, my point is, the difference is genuinely successful people spend less time feeling sorry for themselves and know when to stay in play or sit out for a day all in support of their mission, vision, and team!

Reality checks yourself from time to time. I certainly do. NO FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF! THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE HAPPY WITH LESS THAN YOU HAVE! If you are not 100% but have many depending on you, it’s ok to say I need help, need to take a seat, need aide..communicate… Don’t tap in and out and expect the team to draw in and out with you… miss an attitude when the team still pushes to win the game without you in play…remember…YOU ARE STILL ON THE TEAM, IN THE GAME, AND THEY NEED YOU BACK IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

Most importantly.. Put GOD in front of your problems…He is the Best Blocker in the business of moving and removing obstacles! 😉

Not sure who this is for, but there it is… 🙂

Mathew 11:28-30
Philipians 4:13

No self pity….we are all wild things…

Wild thing:

“I NEVER saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself. A bird will fall dead, frozen, from the bough of a ship, without ever feeling sorry for itself.” D.H. Lawrence

YOU GOT THIS!! Let’s go! Smart moves! Survival Tactics, Stay vigilant, or stay food!

Father, when we are week, you are always secure! Guide us, father, inspire us to move when we can’t! Your word says is the light that moves us in the darkness of this world. With your grace, kindness, and will move us from a place of self-pity knowing you are there to catch us, there to hold us up and there to push us forward. Walk with our father until we can run on our own. Thank you, father. In your holy name, we pray. Amen.
