Born to succeed

I believe that God created human beings for an awe-inspiring purpose. But I have never understood that purpose up until a few years ago. The Bible reveals man's incredile potential. It shows how God is working out His glorious purpose on earth! and in our lives.

I realized that God does not want us to fail, he wants us to prosper. The world is full of opportunities. Nearly anyone with a truly strong desire to succeed at something can succeed. The problem that I faced in succeeding was letting people or things discourage me from persuing my goals and dreams. In addition I only attempted things that I knew I can do, and In reality I was a part of my own stumbling block because I did not challenge myself properly

If I wanted to succeed–really succeed, I had to be willing to take on things that have a high chance of failing. So if you want to succeed don't be afraid to take on a challenge, and remember your not alone. phillipians 4:13 says that we can do all things through christ who strenghtens us.
That means do everything through him he knows the right way, and he knows your purpose in life, so as you go fourth in your journey allow God to guide you and give you clear direction.

companies taking advantage of workers due to the bad economy

During the last few years, since our economy has declined i noticed companies taking advantage of employees. The company I work for in which I will not name at this time for various reasons, has increased the work load with less employees to do the task. Who do you complain to? no one because if you do, their response would be your lucky to have a job.

Not only that, management has lost a great deal of respect for their front line workers which has caused a decrease in employee morale. For the last several years I have found it very difficult getting up in the morning, rushing to work to find that I am not appreciated or respected as you should be. I then finally realized that your job controls you, if you allow it to. Your job determines when to take a vacation, when to get up in the morning and when to go to bed at night, among other things. Sometimes we don't realize that because we are so caught up in our jobs, and are afraid to speak up for fear of loosing it. What we must realize is who blessed us with the job in the first place, Which is God almighty and that we should put our trust in him because he is our source of wealth. So when you get discouraged talk to God, and remember in his word he said that we shall cast all our cares and burdens on him because he loves us.(1 peter 5:7)
