It is so easy to start off thinking “I have to…”
But this “have to” could be something that you actually love doing!
Why to we always turn everything into a chore?
The other day I started thinking, “I still have to Journal today…” but as much as I love journaling, that thought turns it into something it shouldn’t be.
So I’m on a mission.
I’m going to change all my “have to” thoughts into “want to”
As soon as I changed the words in my head to “I want to journal today”, inspiration, passion and drive all came back to me.
What are you thinking about the things you love?
When a big event is going to happen in my life, or something that I’m really looking forward to is drawing near, people can have a tendency to feel suddenly unmotivated, or even fall ill.
I’ve had a request to talk more about overcoming this.
Whether psychosomatic, or an actual illness, the fact is that you feel bad. This is either the result of stress or an imbalance in your body’s chemistry.
I like to think of it as a challenge.
As a child and a teen, when I had a vacation, a dance recital or just an amazing opportunity come up, I’d start to feel sick closer to the day.
I missed out on so much because of this.
As an adult, I’ve faced the same situation. But I now see it as a challenge to rise up and take the opportunity that will let me enjoy something that I’d otherwise have missed out on.
Here’s how I rise up.
I am not a naturally organised person. When I am organised, it means that I’ve really worked hard on it.
There are areas of my life that even now need some work and I’ll be the first to admit it! But I’m happy to say that I’ve been working hard for both the video team and my LifeGroup.
As I’ve slowly started implementing organisation into the team, it’s been easier to see not only the weakness of the team as a whole, but also the strengths.
Our biggest strength has always been passion. People who remain in a team for a long time have an amazing passion for video and/or church. This doesn’t start this way, but it can grow when you put your time and effort into it. However, We’ve recently discovered that communication was a area that definitely needed to be developed. It’s amazing how simple the answer can be to a multitude of problems. Not enough people for recording the service, or cables in the wrong place, people not knowing where to go or when to get there. Now that we’ve started getting organised in the way we schedule, and before each service, those problems have all but dissapeared.
How do we get organised?
In our team we have started getting together 15 minutes before each service. we have three key things to do before we start.
