Are you flourishing in life? Part II

There is a battle inside of your mind right now between the “flourishing self” and the “languishing self”.  The “flourishing self” mindset understands that you are a success and you can do anything that you set your mind to.  But, the “languishing self” mindset only sees the current situation and believes that you are stuck where you are.

The main characteristics of the “languishing self” mindset are:

  • Feeling discontent, uneasy, and unhappy.
  • Pick up bad habits that will sensitize the pain on a temporary basis.
  • Spend precious time being fearful and angry.
  • Are not productive and are afraid to try new things.
  • May feel lonely and worthless.

The main characteristics of the “flourishing self” mindset are:

  • Believe in one’s spirit and heart that one can blossom, prosper, and thrive.
  • Are being empowered, inwardly by God, to believe in oneself.
  • In the mind have consistent thoughts of happiness, joy, peace, and love.
  • Being transformed by “the renewing of one’s mind” because loves new knowledge and learning.
  • Have no issue with time because understand the importance of gaining knowledge no matter what.

Once you have a true understanding of who God created you to be, you can start the process of flourishing.
