In today's world, the popular thing to do is proclaiming and giving announcement to our "haters". We hear it all the time how people work hard to fight against others, to block them from their purpose or success. Then we make great announcement to our haters like " You tried to block me but I'm going to go over you." I have seen a t-shirt that gave greetings to the haters, it said "Hi Haters". When people give you the cold shoulder or attitude for no reason, we just send them to the haters’ corner and go about our way. I understand why we just don't want any dealings with "the haters" because who need or want negativity in their life right.?
Why don't we have that same zeal when the negativity is coming from within.There are more of us that are actually holding ourselves back from our purpose and success than "the haters", with our Negative thinking and inner Val's. (I don’t follow this, when you say critical thinking its referring to how one think through their problems to solve it. There are some of us that are so afraid of being rejected that we won't step out and operate in things we are gifted in, because we worry about what somebody's going to think. We're worried about if someone is going to dislike us if we say or do certain things. Too many of us don't walk into our successful place because we don't believe that we are good enough, smart enough, have enough college degrees, pretty enough and wise enough; and to that I say enough is enough! We won't step out in faith because we already convinced ourselves that we will absolutely fail. Let me ask you a question, who do you know that is successful now, started off by telling themselves that they will fail, yet succeeded? People do not start businesses thinking to themselves I know it's going to fail.
The Bible says "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). That means what you tell yourself about you, carry more weight than any hater. Why, because the way you think becomes you and it molds you into the person you're currently and will become. I hope you caught that because some of us have been thinking we will never succeed, some of us have been thinking we don't deserve better, some of us have been thinking well my daddy wasn't there for me and I turned out alright, so I don't have to be there for my children. There are some of us who have been thinking well they've been calling me a whore all my life, so I guess I'll act like one. Listen there are some of us that have been thinking I saw my mother getting beat all the time, so it must be alright. There are some of us who think that the more we are abused proves how great our abuser loves us (Which I never understood, but I guess it's the way I thinketh!)
We start to make inner Val's (I’m thinking you want to say value) that shape our life due to the way we think, which becomes our belief system. If we have convince ourselves that we will never be successful then we just won't try. If we convince ourselves that marriage never work and the two parties are never happy, then guess what? When we persuade ourselves that we don't deserve to be with someone who respects us, genuinely care for us and love us unconditionally, we end up in abusive relationships. We swear to ourselves that we cannot practice portion control or healthy eating, we end up overweight and some with health issues. We must realize that the way we think of ourselves could affect us mentally, physically and spiritually. Yes spiritually there's some of us who will not turn to God because we don't feel we are worthy of His love.
Listen they're too many of us worried about our haters, when we're our biggest hindering. We only have haters when we are doing something for them to hate on in the first place. I have to say this (and it's out of love) if you're not moving in your purpose or working towards success the "Haters" have no reason to hate on you. If we're not living out our best life and evolving into our best self, then we need to look inside not outside. The "haters" should be looking at you enviously because you're moving and growing in places they haven't had the courage to do themselves. However if you're sitting on the same bench as them twittering your thumbs, you're just a co-spectator.
People of God listen the Bible says " Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies”. That means it's clear we're going to have enemies or "haters", however, we must first be at the table! (Amen) Watch this they must be present or else the table won't be prepared! Let's not worry about the "haters" they will do their job, haters going to hate right? We should turn the energy we use to identify our haters to weeding out what's blocking us from the inside. Do a self-checkup and see if you are a victim of stinking (love lol) thinking, and if the diagnosis says “yes”e Chang it quickly. Let's not allow anything outside or inside block us from our purpose and destiny.
I Love You With The Love Of The Lord
