LeaderAchievers know that positivity and patient self-control does far more good than negativity.
As a talent scout for God – I listen to what people say:
- Are they generally positive or negative?
- Do they have the hope of God in their heart and words – or do they expect the worst is coming over the hill?
In my early days as an amateur boxer, one thing I learned during a match was to listen to the encouraging words from my coach and tune out the negative words from the audience.
My coach always told me 2 things:
- Be patient
- And wait for the right moment
This made the difference between winning and losing a fight. You might lose the first round but you can win the fight!
The Word of God supports this advice: “So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world” (1 Peter 1:13).
Think, pray, be patient for the right moment!
