Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius said, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
That means, the thing that is in the way, becomes the way—or it is the obstacle that becomes the opportunity! What is stopping you from achieving your goals and dreams?
God gifted you with life and your gift to God is to do something extraordinary with your life! Or as Dr. Howard Thurman, the great theologian and philosopher said, “Live your life in such a way that when you come to die, God will not have to repent for making you!”
This week on my SiriusXM show, the special guest is ME! Actually, it’s a recent interview, syndicated radio host, George Kilpatrick, recorded for his own radio show. George has a special gift in getting guests to really dig deep in sharing their ideas and concepts. Upon listening, my staff suggested you would enjoy this interview, and I agreed!
Here are a few “pearls” came from the interview:
- Difficult times happen to us all, yet we decide whether we will let them break us or build us. Remember, the same hammer that can break the glass can also be the one that shapes the iron!
- A reputation, a brand of being excellent, will always be the best job security. No one can promise you will continue working where you are presently, but if you are excellent—and the word gets around that you are excellent, someone is always looking to get you on their team!
- You must see inside yourself and determine what you are meant to do, and where you are supposed to go with your life! Once you have that vision clear, go to work to make it a reality!
- There is more for you when you decide that there is more for you!
- If you want greater in your life, work on the greater within yourself!
- Decide to unlock and unleash the power that God has placed inside of you!
- Your faith is energized and maximized by taking action on that faith!
