I Own My LoC:

"Learned helplessness is the giving-up reaction, the quitting response that follows from the belief that whatever you do doesn’t matter." – Martin Sligman.


Herein is the foolishness of those with an external LoC. They see themselves as victims, unfortunate, incidental creatures, that were never planned for, but just managed by some form of luck, mistake or so to be here.

For these poor fellows, they are okay with merely existing, tolerated, not celebrated. They have no idea of reigning in life. They are so distance from such one wonders how they differ from sheer animals. No wonder they are allergic to responsibility.

These are wastes of God's creation. Even God detest such. No creator or artist will want such of his or her own work of creativity and artistry. Every creator and artist seeks to exude glory from and through their work.


Everything in life works by principles and laws. We either fall in or fall out. How we turn out has nothing ti do with the principles and laws. These are sacrosanct and neutral. What we get from them is determined by how we relate with them.

Principles and laws are not sentimental. God is not either. Principles and laws are not mocked in any way shape or form. 

Case Study:

Yesterday, I had an exodus from a little project I undertook to champion. This is something I had never done before, but others in the group have. Obviously, people came with their various sentiments and assumptions. 

The first challenge reared its ugly head in the place of trust. We had a someone sow a seed of division. I sure was not expecting that. Well after the dust settled, I had to tighten the screws to avoid a repeat occurrence.

Lo and behold, we had another bust pipe. People were upset at the flexibility and innovations being brought to bear. Shameful and disappointing I must say. There was an exodus of both those I expected and those I did not. 

All things works together for good. A core stayed and that is all that is required in making miracles. No wonder God had to reduce the army Gideon amassed. It is not about the multitude. It is about the cohesion, unity of purpose and vision.

You are Never Helpless:

There is a law called, “The Golden Rule.” It behooves us all to be responsible. It gives no place for excuses. There is a law called, “The Law of Sowing and Reaping.” It calls on each of us to be responsible and mature.

I like the was Jim Rohn says it. He says, “The greatest form of maturity is at harvest time. This is when we must learn how to reap without complaint if the amounts are small and how to reap without apology if the amounts are big.”

Say bye-bye to your excuses and live. What you do sure matters. Don’t let anyone deceive you. You can make a positive or negative difference to your life. The choice is yours. What you do, say and think sure matters.
