When I saw the opening quote, I thought about “that place.”
“That place” I can go where possibilities and opportunities begin bubbling up all around me.
“That place” is where I receive clarity about my vision.
“That place” for me is when I am traveling at a comfortable pace while on a long run or a long bike ride.
“That place” shuts out all the clammer and noise of the world, and my brain’s creative (right) side begins to go to work.
We all have “that place.”
We all have those moments where our spirit is aligned with His possibilities, power, and guidance.
Going to “that place” provides inspirational comfort for the body, mind, and soul.
Our world seems too busy with nonsense, found anywhere except “that place.”
If your spirit is heavy and you’re unable to picture your life much farther than today…try frequenting “that place.”
If you don’t know where “that place” is, ask Him…He will reveal it to you.
Matthew 6:6, “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
Plan – A dream/goal remains a dream until it is put into writing. Putting your dream or goal in writing is the first step in creating a PLAN to achieve it. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Effort – Turning your dream/goal into reality requires a commitment to putting forth consistent and focused EFFORT toward the execution of your plan. Nothing great in life happens without working hard.
Attitude – Your chances of achieving your dream exponentially increase if you believe you will achieve it. Always remember that your ATTITUDE determines your altitude in life.
Community – Nothing great in life happens by doing it alone. The chances of achieving your dream expand as your COMMUNITY of positive mentors and coaches expand. You become the average of the five people you spend the most time with…and yes, spending time with “people” through books and instructional videos factors into your average.
Energy – Chasing and achieving your dream requires optimal mental, physical, and spiritual levels of ENERGY. Take care of yourself; no one else will.
