1. THERE IS A CROSSROAD We all experience times in our lives where we come to a crossroads. You must decide what your next step will be. Many of us have experienced making decisions that we now regret and we feel like we are back at ground zero. As you examine your choices you can sometimes feel that the time before the crossroads was lost or unfruitful. We can feel disconnected and drained because of the circumstances in our lives.
2. WE MUST BE WILLING Even though you can be going through a lot you must be willing to change. You can't stay in an unfruitful place because it is comfortable or familiar. You must realize that where you are no longer benefits. You must never allow pride to dictate whether or not you make changes in your life. When you function in pride you are not available emotionally, spiritually or naturally. You are set in your ways and you feel that your way is the only way. It causes you to deny that you could be wrong in your situation and eventually you become stagnant.
