Meditation

MEDITATE def. think deeply about something, contemplate, consider, ponder

 

There is something potent about uninterrupted, single minded, committed thought.

Do you step out of the traffic to chew it over like a cow (further) chews cud?

WHO YOU LEARN FROM MATTERS!

For more than 20 years I have been on a personal growth journey with John Maxwell mentoring me from afar via his books, CDs etc.

Now I am so fortunate to be mentored by John.

I was so glad I had pen handy when I was in the room with him in Florida. You see, words are powerful & creative.

So what did John say that day?

I see you as a transformational leader …someone who influences people to think , speak , act in such a way that it brings positive difference in their life and the lives of others

Sometimes you have to borrow another’s belief in you to get traction….that’s why it is so important who is in your inner circle.

I encourage you to take a moment today to intentionally audit who you allow to speak into your life.

Who do you learn from?

Who you learn from matters!

Clear the path!

You likely have heard the cliches “life is a journey” and “life is a marathon not a sprint“

Life’s “road” has it’s potholes and debris.

My mandate is to clear the path for long distance runners.

May your path be long and clear!

Here’s 3 considerations and keys for our journey:

1️⃣ Does your path lead to where you want to go?

🔑 In this fast life, slow down to intentionally evaluate your steps. Are they taking you closer to your desired destination?

2️⃣ Get clear on what you value, who you are, where you are, where you desire to be and who is running wth you.

🔑 Questions -> clarity -> success

3️⃣ Wouldn’t it be great if we could get the “heads up” on the upcoming potholes to avoid injury and go further with peace and prosperity ?

FIXED

My determination of where I am going is fixed. How I get there is not.
“Be stubborn about the vision, be flexible with your plan”
– John Maxwell.
Is my focus monomaniacal?
Would friends call it an all consuming obsession?
Crazed maybe?

OCULAR

Seeing with my eyes and my imagination.

Seeing where I want to go with the knowledge of having seen where I already am and most importantly seeing who I am.

“You will never outperform your own self image”
– Maxwell Maltz
COMMAND
“Discipline equals freedom”
– Jocko Willink
Am I following up my intent with corresponding action?
Are my activities moving me closer to what I want to accomplish?
(UNDERPINNING) SUCCESS
“When I’m old, how much would I be willing to pay to travel back in time and relive the moment that I’m experiencing right now?”
– Muneeb Ali
Is my definition of success clearly written out?
Not my parents’. Not my spouse’. Mine.
Not sure?
Here’s a start…
Is it simply goal getting?
Fulfilment?
Significance?
Legacy?
How will it feel?
What will it look like?
Who will it impact?

The Humility of Wisdom

Wisdom: domain, state or condition of being wise.

Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice

– Anton Chekhov

Stepping out of the traffic to reflect is a dividend producing exercise.

Some say experience is the best teacher.

My mentor John C Maxwell says that evaluated experience is the best teacher.

Evaluation of my OWN life recognises “the walk” (results/fruit) of “the talk” (information/knowledge).

Wisdom is applied knowledge producing order, peace and blessing.

Folly produces chaos, falling apart and people “at each other’s throats”.

Evaluation brings opportunity to adjust.

Who can count the stars?

A humbling experience.
