Think that influencing one or two people will not have an effect.
Permit big, exciting, bucket list type of goals keep you from seeing that faithfulness in small, day-to-day responsibilities is invaluable.
Hold yourself or others to standards impossible for anyone to keep.
Let someone who judges you or a loved one have power over your attitude.
Try to tackle ever injustice in the world. All. By. Yourself.
Put another human being on a pedestal.
Think that you would never be like “that person.” [You might
surprise disappoint yourself some day.]
Empower your past regrets and failings to dictate your future potential.
Pad your bank account in an effort to catch up to the Jones.
Listen to the critics who forget you are a person in need of grace.
Listen to the voice in your head that says nothing short of perfection will satisfy God.
Put entirely too much stock into “What if…?” statements.
Forget that today is just a small dot on the long line that represents your life.
Allow failure to slow you down.
