Have you ever come across someone whom you haven’t seen in years and the very first thing they say to you is. . . “Wow, you’ve changed so much that I barely recognized you.”

Perhaps, on occasion you've had people fail to recognize a change in your appearance, maybe a hair color or radical haircut.

More frequently people, even some of those closest to you, fail to recognize the inward changes in your life.

There are also times that we may not recognize someone because of a change in their behavior, attitude and/or character.

Sometimes we even fail to recognize people or the changes in those people but there are seven things winners. . .always recognize.  We have the power to change our daily lives and our destiny here on planet earth.

1.         Recognize your Enabler

God gives you the breath of life. . .PLUS He enables, enlightens, empowers, equips and energizes you with everything you need to fulfill your destiny.

It’s important to understand the source of all your power and insightYou must know who He is and the fact that it’s possible to change.

1 Corinthians 1:18 in The Living Bible says: “I know very well how foolish it sounds to those who are lost, when they hear that Jesus died to save them. But we who are saved recognize this message as the very power of God.”

As a born-again believer we are the recipients of the power of God.

John 14:26 in the Amplified Bible says:

Do you feel like you’ve been going through bad stuff?

Are you convinced that you shouldn’t have to deal with the mess you’re dealing with?

What you’re facing at the moment may stink . . . but that doesn’t necessarily change the circumstances.

One of my favorite motivational stories was first told by President Ronald Reagan.

The story concerns twin boys around sixEach of the boys had developed extreme personalities that worried their parents.  One was a total optimist . . .happy, giggling all the time. . .while the other twin was a total pessimist, crying and whining about everything.

The parents were so concerned about the difference personalities in the twins they took them to a psychiatrist.

First, the psychiatrist treated the pessimist. Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys. But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears. "What's the matter?" the psychiatrist asked, baffled by his response. "Don't you want to play with any of the toys?" "Yes," the little boy bawled, "but I'll only break them or somebody may come take them away."

Next, the psychiatrist treated the optimist. Trying to dampen his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure. But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist shouted with delight.  Then the little boy climbed to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop of manure with his bare hands.

"What do you think you're doing?" the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. "With all this manure," the little boy replied, beaming, "there must be a pony in here somewhere!"
