Juan Liners: Are You Successful? Or #Blessed?

If, in spite of success, you still believe that you got way more than what you deserved, then, more blessings will surely come your way.

Rate this:

Why not both right?

 

While commuting on my way home, I caught myself doing a self-check on my sense of self-entitlement, on how I celebrate the small successes in life, on how I feel about these, whether they are rightfully deserved, of whether they are blessings.

Things that traffic jams make us do.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a firm believer of fighting for your own, holding your ground, ensuring your survival, and if possible, comfort.
Further, I believe that God has so much more in store for us, that He wants us to succeed, and that our small successes can’t be “just it” — there’s more to come. We’re destined for greatness.

But therein lies the important difference. I believe every Juan’s destined for greatness and success, not because we deserve it, but because He wants us to. Call it love if you wish.

To borrow a lyrics from an inspiring song:

 
Not because of who I am, but because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done, but because of who You are.

Advanced Merry Christmas every Juan!

    Agreed.
    It's like how your parents pay for your tuition so you can graduate and start a great career or business. Wasting that by living as a bum is… not good.

    We all have a calling in life or a purpose that we need to fulfill, and it's only right that we work on it and earn the blessings that it brings.
