Convince Your Head, And Your Body Will Follow

Brain-head-with-cog-wheelsHello again readers! I hope your day has been blessed.

I really hope you are enjoying my posts on The Dude’s Guide to Manhood by Darrin Patrick. To start at the beginning, click here.

I want you to do something.Think about a place in your life where your thoughts are out of control. Call a friend and let them know your discouragement and ask them for a regular phone conversation to talk through it.

Some of us are beaten at our own game, even before we push play. We don’t expect to win. The majority of the battle is having the determination to NEVER quit. Having that “can’t lose” mentality can go a long way towards becoming a determined person.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Get It Done: Become A Determined Man

ambition-determination-inspirational-inspire-Favim.com-630413Happy Tuesday! I really hope you are enjoying your day.

Yesterday we started reading The Dude’s Guide To Manhood by Darrin Patrick. To skip back to that post, go here. Today, I will be covering Chapter 1. This chapter is broken up into parts, so tomorrow’s post will pick up where I leave off.

Determination. How do you define it? Persistence? Hardheadedness? Determination is defined as the firmness of purpose; resoluteness. It also is refusing to quit until we accomplish our goals. Sadly, most men quit. Why is that?

Mr. Patrick states it perfectly:

Men hit the eject button and hide in juvenile behavior such as video games, pornography, sports leagues, or substance abuse. Other men don’t hide in their activities—- they hide in themselves. They remain silent, consistently passive, and socially awkward. Still others hide with their friends, delaying marriage or, if married, avoiding connection with their wives.

Are the goals that we create for ourselves to big to achieve? Do things get in the way of our goals? Something should get in the way from reaching our goals, no matter how big or small they are. With God on our side, and determination on our mind we can do anything!

I myself have, and currently struggle with big goals There are several things keeping me from reaching them. The main thing keeping from achieving my goals is trust in God. I have no problem putting that out there.

Romans 5:3-5 “Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

Think about what your goals are and what is standing in your way.

Until next time readers, God Bless!
