You Can Make Progress In Life

Posted on

WELCOME BACK. The scripture says “The righteous keep moving forward, and those with clean hands become stronger and stronger” (Job 17:9NLT). I want to emphasize that life is designed for improvement, achievement and success. I also want to state that without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. What is progress? Progress could be defined as forward or onward movement towards a destination. You see, making progress in life is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their mindset cannot change anything. Change is inevitable, change will always happen, but you have to apply direction to change, and that’s progress. No day should leave you the way it meet you. I pray for you that may this articles inspire you to keep making progress in the direction of your dreams. This progress is not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will. Job a servant of God, who feared God and eschewed evil described progress as one who keep moving forward with a clean hands. Further in his word. He was described as one who had seven sons and three daughters, and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East in his days. Wow! Progress is not inevitable. It’s something you can create. In my life, I discovered that the moment a man ceases to make progress in life, to grow higher, wider and deeper, then his life becomes stagnant. Believe me, my journey has not been a simple journey of progress. There have been many ups and downs, and it is the choices that I made at each of those times that have helped shape what I have achieved.

J. Allen Shaw said “Don’t let pride ever cause you to stumble. Baby steps are still progress and keep us humble. It’s better to move slowly then to turn or hide. Keep your eyes focused, let God be your guide”. The most important thing is to make decisions. Whether the decision is right or wrong is secondary. You will soon receive feedback that will help you to progress. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off. What matters most is getting off! You cannot make progress without making decisions. If you’re climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don’t look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don’t think you’re progressing until you step back and see how high you’ve really gone. Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. Always remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure. The greatest fear to the survival of a mediocre is the ignorant of the future. It’s the inability to know where to go and what to do to make tomorrow better. There is also no secrets to your progress in life. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude. Life always seems impossible until what is impossible becomes possible. When you build on failure, use it as a stepping stone. When you close the door on the past, don’t try to forget the mistakes, don’t even dwell on it and don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. Don’t declare failure simply because you messed up or because you’re having trouble reaching your goals. Instead, use your mistakes as opportunities to grow stronger and become better. Stick to good habits. This can be hard work, and mistakes are part of the process. Remember, progress will be impossible if you always do things the way you always did.
