Setting oneself apart

We live in a negative society, and it seems sometimes everyone around us has a negative outlook. Sometimes, it’s difficult to be positive, especially when everyone around is complaining. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being like everyone else, and some might even try to compete with who has it worse. The hard thing to do is to find a positive, when everything around seems to be going wrong.

There are ways for someone to battle the feelings that try to surface when this happens. The first thing is to realize no matter how bad things get, it could always get worse. When someone is always focused on what is going wrong and how horrible their life is, they are actually bringing more negative energy in their life, because that is what they are sending out. I call this you reap what you sow. When someone speaks negative their words have energy, and power. This can affect the person speaking, and anyone around them.

The next strategy, to combat, these negative thoughts, or feelings is to pray, and believe that things are going to get better. Instead of speaking more negative, say a prayer, and then thank the Father, for acting on your behalf. The Father is a faith God, and if we are speaking negative it’s not walking in faith but, instead doubt. Try to catch negative thoughts, before you speak it into existence, say something positive instead. Focus on the fruits of the spirit, when doing this.

The next thing is to feed your spirit something positive. Listen to some faith teachings, or plug yourself into some praise, and worship music. There is power in praise. Sometimes an uplifting praise song will make negative emotions fade away. It can also change the atmosphere around someone, and will affect things in a positive manner.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
