Are you on fire? I heard a preacher once say are you on fire? Or are you trying to put out someone else's fire.
If you're not on fire I mean a raging fire what happens to a tiny flicker of flame it easily goes out with the first wind.
However, a raging fire doesn't go out with the first wind actually when the winds blow it just serves to make the fire grow even hotter. You can go away and that fire will continue to burn where you planted it.
Actually we are all one of the following three types of people, which one of these are you.
- People that make things happen
- People that get on board with those who make things happen
- and People like Butch that wonder what happened.
As a kid why did you never have trouble getting up on Christmas morning? Two reasons really because you knew that something really good was going to happen to you. But two you had an unshakeable belief that there would be presents under the tree. Hence the great excitement and anticipation thus creating a great positive attitude.
The secret is extraordinary people are excited to get up everyday and so should we. By believing something great will happen each day we bring together unseen forces to help us. Plus this attitude attracts the right people to aid us in accomplishing great things.
Anybody can get excited over something good that's a sure deal, like Christmas. However, what separates the extraordinary from the ordinary are those who have the vision to see what others can't see in the future and take action.
There are two roads in life. One is a very broad and paved road and the amazing thing about this road is that you don’t have to look for it or have directions to find it. By simply doing nothing it will find you and in 40 years or less on this giant freeway it will take you to the twin over-populated cities of Regret and Failure.
On the other hand there is another much harder to find road as it's simply a bare unmarked trail at the beginning and many people walk past it everyday without noticing. But once in a while to the weary, searching traveler it opens up a glimpse of the great vision it contains waiting at trails end.
The great thing about being on this second road is you meet other travelers who make traveling easier and considerably much more fun.
Everyone on this road sees something fascinatingly different “on down the road.” Walt Disney saw Disneyland and Epcot Center on this road. Orville and Wilbur Wright could see the future of air travel. Henry Ford could see a nation of automobiles. Our founding fathers could see a land of free men in a country that was the greatest land of freedom of opportunity the world had ever known.
So if you dare we invite you to take this path on the “Journey of No Regrets.” Where the hardest step is always the first.
