Exodus 15:22-27

22 Moses then led Israel from the Red Sea towards the wilderness of Shur. They walked in the desert for three days without finding water.

23 They reached Marah but could not drink the water there as it was bitter. That is why the place is called Marah.

24 The people grumbled against Moses and said, “What shall we drink?”

25 Moses then cried out to Yahweh who showed him a piece of wood, and when he threw it in the water, the water became sweet. There Yahweh gave the people statutes and laws. There he tested them

26 and said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of Yahweh, your God, and if you do what is right in his eyes, if you obey his commands and statutes, I will not inflict on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am Yahweh, the One who heals you.”

27 Then they came to Elim where there are twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and there they pitched their camp beside the water.

Orang-orang yang sukses adalah mereka yang punya mentalitas pemenang.

Stop sikap manja, karena sikap itu ngga akan membawa kita naik lebih tinggi.

Sikap-sikap manja yang harus dihilangkan:

  • Mengeluh. Keluhan menimbulkan kejengkelan dari orang lain, sekaligus menunjukkan betapa rapuhnya kita.
  • Tidak mandiri. Ngga bisa mengerjakan tugasnya sendiri, selalu minta bantuan dari orang lain.
  • Selalu mendramatisir keadaan seolah-olah orang paling menderita. Masalah kecil dibesar-besarkan. Kebiasaan mendramatisir membuat kita ngga percaya untuk hal-hal besar.
  • Selalu minta dimaklumi. Punya alasan klasik, selalu punya 1001 alasan untuk membela diri.

Miliki mentalitas pemenang, bukan mentalitas yang manja.
