The Call to Greatness
The call is upon us to be unstoppable.
That thing that your spirit has been urging you to do? It’s time to do it.
The time for procrastination is over. The light is green and it’s time to go.
I know that there are things that I need to do. This business isn’t going to run itself and these books aren’t going to write themselves.
When we get a strong desire within ourselves to do something, that means one thing: that it’s time to get to it. Our spirit tells us time after time to do this thing or do that thing, but instead of getting right to it we allow our minds to tell us that it isn’t the right time for some reason or other.
But if we wait around for perfect conditions nothing will ever get done.
I’ve heard the excuses. Hell, I’ve made the excuses. But at the end of the day, the calling is ours and ours alone. If we don’t do what we were put here to do, ultimately we’re going to have to answer for it, and trust me, when you’re standing in front of the great Creator your excuses ain’t going to cut it.
I know it can be hard. But so what? Everything worth doing is hard. When a child learns to walk it’s hard. Think about it, the kid does more falling than anything. But guess what? He gets back up. He gets up, falls down, and gets back up again, over and over until he masters that thing. He doesn’t let pain or the fear of failing stop him.
It’s amazing to me how much a child doesn’t fear failing. Their general attitude is if something goes wrong, if they fall off their bike or skateboard or if they don’t get it the first time they just try again. Even if they hurt themselves, they might cry or fuss for a minute, but they just get right on back to doing what they were doing once the initial disappointment is over.
The older we get, the more we lose that. Many of us lose our nerve, grit, and determination with age. We begin to get set in our ways, and we adapt to the program of not living up to the dreams we had as children.
Imagine for a moment that you could get that back, that you could reclaim the can-do attitude you had as a child. Can you imagine how powerful you would become?
We’ll talk again…
