Have you ever noticed that you are a greater cheerleader for others than
Imagine what you could accomplish if that same energy you applied to
others’ success was used on you. In our Christian walk, sometimes we need a
reminder of our internal tools. One of our greatest tools is to allow faith
to conquer fear. This book is meant to challenge all the negative images and
thoughts we often have about ourselves.
It will encourage readers to envision and take advantage of opportunities
to promote a different outcome. In this book, the reader will be challenged
to participate in self-reflection and deal with the hard issues, because
avoidance is never deliverance. Know what you can handle and how to deal
with it in a positive way. No matter how many bruises, scars, or flaws,
there is a “fabulous” within you waiting to come forth.
God is an awesome God who desires for us to be made
complete. Sometimes, the scars of life will have us fake it
until we make it. Everything in life happens for a reason.
Scripture reminds the believer that “to everything there is a season”
(Eccles. 3:1). You are not what you experienced. The most important
thing you can remember is to use your experiences as opportunities
to learn from them. Embrace the better you by building off your
experiences. Maybe you planned on completing your education, but
the credit hours and grades did not work out. Or perhaps you have
been trying for a position with your company and cannot seem to
get the yes you have been waiting for. Did you know that the last
no does not mean no forever? There are countless professionals who
will share their stories of repeated failures before they got it right.
The point is that even if it does not work out the first time, that
is no excuse to quit. Let me challenge the better in you by saying
this: it is okay to try again.
