Last week, I only accomplished 20% of what I had planned. How disappointing. I started to beat myself up but then remembered that I can’t live in that negative place.
Beating yourself up for your mistakes does not make you feel better. It just drives us into deeper discouragement. In all situations, you must speak life. Proverbs 18:21 says, The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
A better way to handle a tough situation or day is by saying, “Hey, I didn’t accomplish all of my goals today, but tomorrow will be a better day. Thank you, Lord.” Confirm your victory and carry on.
