I want to share with you the four keys that transformed my struggle about how to move my life forward everyday. Sometimes ago, I became dissatisfied having discovered that I spent the allotted 24 hours without making a meaningful progress. But everything changed positively when I discovered the four keys I want to share with you.
I believe these things will help anyone who cares about making a meaning out of life and not just measuring the day by activities. Following these principles will begin to make your days count and exempt you from those who just count the days. So, let’s look at the four principles together.
- Live Right
The first principle to move your life forward everyday is to live right.
There are two paths that determines the outcome of our daily living. The path of wrong and right living.
You must choose the path of those who live right if you want to make progress with your life daily.
The Bible says the path of living right is like the early morning light. It gets brighter and brighter until the full light of day ( Proverbs 4:18ERV).
- Think Right
Focus on your thoughts everyday. Resist the temptation to think in the direction you don’t want your life to follow.
Be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life (Proverbs 4:23ERV).
Life is shaped by your thoughts.
When your thinking is productive, your day will be productive.
- Speak Right
The principle is never say anything that isn’t true.
Let truth guide your speech. Speak the truth in love always.
Understand when you need to be quiet and the time to speak
Don’t speak except you have something gracious and meaningful to communicate.
Let your words be few.
Don’t bend the truth or say things that you know are not right (Proverbs 4:24ERV).
- Choose Right
My friend, Gboyega Adedeji always say to me that, “We make our choice in life and our choice eventually make us.”
Make an unbroken personal rule to choose right in whatever you do everyday.
Make choices based on your values and vision.
To choose right everyday helps to move your life forward daily.
Keep your eyes on the path, and look straight ahead (Proverbs 4:25ERV).
The outcome of your life everyday hangs on how you choose to live your life daily.
May you always make your days count and not just be counting your days (Psalm 90:12).
