Massive success requires massive accountability. The Go-Giver first law of stratospheric success is to give more in value than you take in payment. How many people can you give value to every single day?
I’m a husband, father, worship pastor at two churches, builder and leader of a distribution network. My life is big, going on huge. Many people are counting on me. The great thing about that is I don’t have time to procrastinate. I don’t have time for self-pity. I don’t have time for indecision. I can’t afford to not show up every day. I must become who I am called to be, if for no other reason than there are more and more and more people counting on me to be that man.
Keep perspective. Keep the main thing the main thing. God first. And I want to admire and inspire myself all the way through this. Having said that, the cloud of witnesses is vitally important. Your kids are watching. Your spouse is watching. Your church is watching. Your community is watching. The world is watching.
Go Big! We need the Best You that you can be!
Have a great week!
I love my life! I have been so blessed! Some days are more challenging than others. When those challenging days come, I do something I learned by watching my wife. She has a gratitude journal, just a regular notebook in which she writes down things she’s grateful about. She’s been doing this for 6 years now and she has over 1400 entries in her journal. I’ve caught her just reading through this book. It’s an amazing reminder of the faithfulness of God.
For several years I’ve admired this practice and thought to myself “I should do that!” How many of us have things we should do? I should eat better. I should get more rest. I should be kinder to the dog. Tony Robbins says the only way your life changes is when your ‘should’ becomes a ‘must!’
I have 12 entries in my gratitude journal now. The first one is “46 years of life and health.” I’m very grateful for that. I like being alive and being able to move around and do things and go places and… dance. I can dance. Not saying I’m good at it, but I can do it, and you know what I did this morning? I put on some Rita Marley and danced!
I’m going to put that in my journal now. I get to dance! Now I’m feeling much more alive and excited and ready to rock Friday, which is the point I was making. Gratitude wakes you up and allows you to fight from a place of victory, not toward it. Gratitude says, “look at how good things are, look how we’re winning, look how amazing life is!”
Ok, I’m off to play! See you guys! Have a great day! There is much to be grateful about!
