Do Something Too Big

Passion is always found in doing something we think is too much, too big, too hard, too extreme for us. 

When we approach a goal that is bigger than we are, our passion is ignited and we find that we are bigger than we thought. 

Doing something that makes us bigger helps our lives become bigger, and that is when we fulfill our potential.

Commitment Leaves No Room Excuses

Excuses allow us to avoid the potential of pain that comes from the possibility of failure. Excuses are created and used when we are not committed and usually come from listening to negative emotions that we allow to turn into feelings. When committed we find a way. You can be scared and committed. You can be afraid and committed. Commitment is a decision that has nothing to do with feelings. 

 

 

We Fear Forward

We are not afraid of yesterday. 

We are not afraid of the past. 

We are not afraid of words spoken. 

We are not afraid of actions taken. 

The future is what we are afraid of, tomorrow, the unknown. 

Fear is always about what we do not know or have not experienced. 

Key Aspects of Power

Our true power is proven in our resilience, our responses, how we react to the challenges we face. 

Our true power is a combination of the right choices, positive mindset, and real faith. 

Strengthening one key aspect will always strengthen the other two as well.
