It's Time for a Change - P.I.V.O.T.
Are you ready for a change?
We are near the midway point in 2017. How close are you to reaching your goals?
Proverbs 16:1-3 lets us know that God ALWAYS has:
Where do you go for an answer? TV? Magazines? Friends? Horoscopes?
How do you know the right way to go? Do you look to family tradition, what everybody else is doing, what is popular, what makes you feel good, or what makes you look good?
How do you decide what to do? Do you wait for people to ask? Go with the flow? Follow the leader? Address what is urgent and pressing? Do what other people tell you to do?
Here is what you must know and do:
God has an answer. Go to Him in prayer.
God knows which way to go. Ask Him for direction.
God knows exactly what you should do. Listen and learn.
Pray. Ask. Listen. This is the powerful PAL method to finding your way.
There are many points in my life where I was confused about my direction. I felt like I was drowning and in way over my head. At the bottom of my pit (called depression), I decided that I HAD to get out!
This is when I discovered the power of P.A.L. - Pray. Ask. Listen.
But I wasn't ready for change until I found my direction. I asked. I listened. And God showed me which way to go. That is when I discovered the power of one more strategy.
When you have learned your direction and what you should do, it is time to PIVOT.
Pivot is a central point around which something turns.
God is that central point around which you must turn. And then you must PIVOT.
PIVOT involves 5 things that you must do:
Position. You have to position yourself for the change. This means aligning yourself with the people and circumstances that will bring about the change that you want to see.
Inventory. You must take a real inventory of where you are now. You must look at your life with an unbiased view and face the honest, and sometimes brutal, facts of your current reality.
Value. You must sort through your life and determine what you truly value. You have to get clear about what is most important to you.
Open. You have to open your heart to receiving God's unconditional love. And you have to open your mind to receiving wisdom and understanding.
Think. You have to examine what you think and what you believe. Your life is a product of your thoughts. Getting clear on your thinking will lead you to make better decisions.
If you are feeling stuck, I want to encourage you to try P.A.L. and PIVOT. If you need help sorting it all out, I am here as your Life Strategy Coach.
It is time for a CHANGE. Do it for YOU. Do it NOW.
And know that I am cheering for you!
