5 Habits to Overcoming Challenges

English Audio Version

The world will try to helm you in, but you don’t have to let it.

Glass ceilings are made to be broken. In the Bible, we read that God wants you to be a success.

Don’t count yourself short. You can develop new habits that will let you be an overcomer.

Let’s look at 5 habits that will enable you to overcome every challenge that comes your way.

Habit 1  comes from 2 Corinthians 12:10.

“For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

No complaining! Accept who you are and focus on the positive. God wants to use your best attributes, not condemn you for your weaknesses.

Habit 2  is found in Psalm 37:23-24.

“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand.”

Accept your occasional bumble as part of life, not as a personal flaw. You will step on people’s toes. Do damage control and move on.

Habit 3  speaks to us from Romans 8:18.

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”

Stay focused on the future. Look past the disaster that’s tearing apart your day. Your goal is still out there, even if you can’t see it now.

Habit 4  calls to us from Jeremiah 28:11.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Never give up on hope, on love, on success. Trust in something, in God, your spouse, yourself. Find faith in the goals you’ve set for yourself. When you depend on God to lead you, you make twice the progress!

Habit 5,  found in Psalm 23:5-6, is our defense against naysayers.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Stop and thank God throughout the day. Your gratitude to the Lord will keep you focused on your forward progress. You will move away from those who would be your enemies and toward the success God has for you.

You will break that glass ceiling. You will overcome. These 5 habits to overcoming challenges will be your start to becoming the best that you can be.

Let’s sum up your 5 new success habits.

  • No complaining.
  • Accept occasional stumbles.
  • Focus on the future.
  • Never give up.
  • Be grateful to God.

Get out there and do it!

When our habit is Christ, our continual success will come through our faith in him.
