To be successful, don’t speak negatively about yourself! That’s a no brainer, isn’t it? And yet, how often do we do exactly that? Today, we’ll take a look at something successful people are generally very good at. We’ll see how it works in everyday life. Then we’ll take a look at how Christians can use the same trait in everything in our lives as well.

Are you mad at God? Yelling at Him and asking, “Why are you doing this to me?!” That might be a good thing.
