Clarity: What Do You Want And Why?

Do you have clarity about what you want and why? 


What Is Clarity?
Clarity is knowing what you want and why. Clarity is not the absence of fear; It is the ability to own your stuff while being present in your own life.  

What do you want and why. Isn’t that what we are all trying to figure out? When you understand your what and why – the answer will come. 

Knowing what you want is just not enough. Most people know what they want, but not why. Knowing why is just as important. Your why is what will keep you motivated when you’re discouraged. Your why is what gets you up when others have given up on their goals. When life throws you a curve ball, you are able to dig deep, remain calm and focused, and scale the storms of life. Your why is your secret weapon.

Why do you want to get married?
Why do you want to buy a house vs a condo?
Why do you want children?
Why do you want to lose weight?

Imagine a life of clarity: A life of less regret, confusion, over thinking and rehashing the past. Who doesn’t want that? As life dishes out challenges, you are able to make decisions from a place of clarity, truth, and peace. 

Clarity brings calm and order to a chaotic life. Clarity walks hand in hand with peace. Clarity produces confidence and determination to pursue your desires, giving you wings to fly to your destiny.

Feeling stuck and hopeless, doubts and confusion are deeply rooted in FEAR and lack of clarity. You’ve lived long enough to know that life is full of obstacles and disappointments. Many ideas, dreams, and visions are crushed under the mountains of doubt, fear, and frustration. Hopes have been dashed and dreams buried alive.

Welcome to the real world: how you start does not determine how you finish
and the fastest runner does not always win the race.

The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119:130.

The Word of God gives clarity and is applicable to every area of our lives. God knows just what you need. Even in the midst of confusion, fear, chaos and anguish. Trust God. Walk by faith and not by sight. God is faithful to you no matter what. Once you’re clear about your goals and why your life will flow better.

Fear and Faith cannot coexist together. Faith paints a bright picture of the future, while fear creates the worst picture of what may happen. Exercise your faith today!

You cannot overcome all your fears all at once. Neither should you attempt to plan all your life at a sitting. The beauty of life is God’s mercies are new every morning, let Him handle all your tomorrows, today is all you have. Take it one step at a time. Put your thinking cap on and write as God gives revelation.

Everyone is afraid of something; you are not alone. The good news is you don’t
have to overcome
 every fear at once. Focus on overcoming the fear that
stands between you and your destiny. 

Clarity will help you determine who remains in your life and who doesn’t. When you have clarity, you don’t fight about it, you simply decide and move on.

Personal Responsibility
When you know Whose you are and why you were created, you make better decisions, own your stuff and don’t blame others.

Personal Accountability 
Knowing what you want and why helps you to have faith in God and your judgment. You will no longer have to prove anything to others.

What Clarity Is Not.
Clarity is not waiting to have the entire picture. It’s simply filling in the blanks as you have it. As things present themselves answers will come.
Clarity is not about others: it’s personal. It’s not your responsibility to decide what other people do. It’s about you taking ownership of your actions.
Clarity is not the pursuit of perfection. It’s embracing imperfections knowing that whatever the outcome you will be fine. 
Clarity is not a dogma, permission, validation or acceptance from others. It’s not a popular belief.
Clarity is not predicting the future. Clarity is in the now and here because that’s all you have. The future cannot be accurately predicted, only guesses.
Clarity is not always an easy option, the path to clarity brings peace and truth. 
Clarity is not denial: it’s a choice.
May the Lord give you clarity and a sound mind. Amen.
