I used to run my business out of my living room. Employees would come over every morning and the living area was converted into an office. Very convenient for me, and employees didn’t care, but it wasn’t cool for clients.
We set out to find an office warehouse to convert into our new creative space. After searching up and down, and through an awesome set of circumstances, we came across the place that I’ve called headquarters since 2010.
It’s easy to walk into my office everyday and not remember the struggles of working in my living room. I take for granted that God made some awesome things happen for me to find and continue to stay in my space.
Recently I’ve changed my attitude towards my office. When I walk in, I remember what God brought me though to get and keep my place.
We entrepreneurs need these reminders around us of the victories we’ve had.
The problem is that we’re so stuck thinking about problems and circumstances that we forget to have an attitude of gratitude.
If we would set up reminders in our minds, I believe we will begin to tip the scale from worry over to gratitude more often in our days.
Back in the Bible says, God would have people set up alters and stones to remember certain events. It happened at the crossing of the Jordan River and many other milestones that the Israelites triumphed, where God mad himself known.
In 1 Samuel we read
Samuel then took a large stone and placed it between the towns of Mizpah and Jeshanah. He named it Ebenezer (which means “the stone of help”), for he said, “Up to this point the Lord has helped us!” 1 Samuel 7:12 NLT
The Israelites had just had a major victory and they set up a reminder so that they won’t forget. This was done to make sure their minds were constantly thinking GRATITUDE.
You have more things great that happen to you than you know. You’re doing better than you think you are. The problem is you’re focused on the bad things that are currently happening than remembering the past victories.
This is why companies put their awards on the walls. This is why companies keep a linkage of employees of the month. This is why it’s important to always write down your victories.
I have a reminder to write my victories every day, then review them once a month, then write the MAJOR ones down on a different list.
If we all kept remembering where we have come from, it will give us the attitude we need and the gratitude needed to propel us into the plan that God continues to have for us.
Godpreneur Rule #105: Godpreneurs constantly celebrate their wins by writing down and revisiting their victories.
