This post is a FIRST for me …
… never before have I posted anything like this! The past few years have been a journey, not an easy one either -but a fulfilling one that has led me to exactly where I need to be.
Spending time with and learning about GOD!
Part of my daily ritual now is to read the Bible, and the other day I read something that really resonated with me; in fact it prompted me to sit down on Saturday morning and right this post.
He who … is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. ~James 1:25
“How often do you see your reflection in a mirror? Some studies say that the average person looks in a mirror 8-10 times a day. Other surveys say it could be as many as 60 to 70 times a day, if glancing at our reflection in store windows and smart phone screens is included.
Why do we look so often? Most experts agree that it’s to check our appearance, especially before meetings or social gatherings. If something is amiss, we want to fix it. Why look if we don’t plan to change what’s wrong?”
**That last sentence really jumped out at me … “Why look if we don’t plan to change what’s wrong?”
I started thinking about my life, and my business and all the areas where I consistently “look” but don’t take the necessary action to change or improve.
What areas of your life or business are you looking at but not improving?
“The apostle James said that reading or hearing God’s word without acting on it is like looking in a mirror and forgetting what we’ve seen (1:22-24). But the better alternative is to look closely and act on what we see. James said, “He who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does” (v.25).
If we hear God’s Word without taking action, we fool only ourselves (v.22). But when we examine ourselves in light of God’s Word and obey His instructions, God liberates us from all that keeps us from looking more and more like Him each day.
~ excerpt from “Our Daily Bread” By David C. McCasland
Reading this and re-reading this Daily Bread the past few days has really helped me see the areas in which I was sitting idle, looking into the mirror but taking no action. In examining this further I realized that there were multiple reasons why I was looking and taking no action:
- in some cases I was hiding behind the reason “excuse” that I didn’t know how to do the specific task or set of tasks
- in some cases I was stuck in the planning to plan and planning to plan again cycle
- in some cases I was hiding behind the reason “excuse” that my team was responsible for the tasks and I was at their mercy
- in some cases I was hiding behind the perfectionist vail
- in some cases I was scared of failure AND success
How about you … are you struggling with any of these reasons “EXCUSES”? Are you spending more time looking than doing?
If so, I would like to invite you to join me in something very exciting.
A few months back I achieved something that I had previously only dreamed of … true TIME FREEDOM!
You know, the kind where you can pick your son up at school take the afternoon off work to go play with him (we went to the driving range yesterday). Or how about the kind where you can go to lunch with your spouse, loved one, or friend without worrying about who’s going to pay or watching the clock because you have to be back at work.
It’s these moments that I truly find fulfilling! These moments are PRICELESS!
I invite you to join my newest project “INNER CIRCLE” … let me give you a sneak peak into what you can expect inside:
- Access to the very secrets I’ve learned and continue to learn about building a Online Lifestyle (whatever that might mean to you … for me it equals TIME FREEDOM)
