Stay Focused, Stay Free Tip #22

Talk It Into Existence

In the beginning of my second year of high school, my then girlfriend and I established a bet that whoever earns the highest GPA (Grade Point Average) in the first semester gets bragging rights. Although my girlfriend wasn’t as serious about the bet, I didn’t take the it lightly. Everyday I touted on how I was going to claim victory. I can’t remember one conversation during that time where my prediction of winning wasn’t mentioned. I teased her about it everyday, I even dragged our peers in on our academic competition. About three months later when the report cards rolled out, not only was my GPA higher than my girlfriend’s grade point average, I had the highest GPA (3.5) among 9th and 10th grade students. As I received my certificate for having the highest GPA in my class, my girlfriend and peers all gave me my props and the right to brag. I bragged, bragged, and bragged throughout the next semester.

As of date, my then girlfriend, who is the mother of my son, Latif Jr., can bear witness to this testimony. One thing I know for sure about life, regardless if it’s positive or negative, if you consistently speak on it, it’ll likely become a reality. I’ve known this practice to be true for a long time; however, it wasn’t until a few years ago where I began putting 100% confidence into this exercise. It is God’s work at the end of the day, though. Therefore, look at it this way: if you continue to pray for something, He (God) will eventually answer your prayers. You may not get it right then and there, but sooner or later He’s going to grant your prayers. It’s that simple. Keep on talking it into existence!
