Five Ways to Overcome Dead End Thinking


Let God Get Rid of the Head Trash You Carry

A consultant once told me, “You’ll struggle to succeed in that sector, because you’re not in a big enough market.” I fought for a decade to prove him wrong, and while I experienced moderate success, I did not live up to the false expectations that I foolishly allowed that consultant to set for me.

Then I asked God which way I should go, and the results were dramatically different. He answered with the right clients, higher profits, and more fulfillment.

'Head trash' are words and ideas that shape your thinking because some individual you respect once told  you: 

  • You’re not good enough, 

  • You’ll never succeed in that endeavor, 

  • You are not worthy.

God has an entirely different view of you: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 (NLTSE)

God made you who you are. God created, equips, and empowers you to do the good works he planned for you to accomplish.  

Don’t let anybody tell you that who God made you isn’t sufficient for what God calls you to.

Get rid of your head trash: Think of one thing that shapes the way you think and act because you believed something that simply isn't true about who you are and how God made you. Pray about it and let God reframe it in your mind — changing the way you think about it — so you can be free from its limitations on your life.
