Throughout difficult times, it’s more important to appreciate what is, in lieu of worrying about what is not. A heart of gratitude and thanksgiving will ultimately place you in a state of mind to receive. Once in that state, your own situation will surely change. Make a list now of the top ten things you’re thankful for… then say those things out-loud each morning when you wake up. Over the course of the next 30 days, keep track of what’s changed… you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Welcome to the summer issue of your newsletter. Great changes are currently taking place all around the world, from the white house to your house!  Some resist change and some embrace it -there are unique consequences to each.  How do you deal with change?  It could make a difference! Please enjoy your newsletter and remember, if you like it, please pass it on!

Change for the Sake of Change
Have you ever said to yourself, I just need a change?  Maybe you’re stuck in a rut, simply bored with life or just turned 50, but something is drawing you to make change just for the sake of change.  Please be careful with this type of change and think of the consequences.  Many people have ruined 20-year-long relationships seeking change.  Others have walked the “wild side” only to return with experiences they would gladly forget or rewind if they could.  If seeking a thrill, gather with a few friends and simply talk about it – chances are, they are too.  This will bring balance to your decisions, while still getting it out of your system!

Emergency Change
This is what many call life or death situations.  Some outside force or event occurs and if you don’t change, you have a high probability of total failure or even death!  A banker calls your real estate note and you have no place to go.  You are diagnosed with a disease that gives you a 50-50 chance of survival.  In any case, when an emergency change enters your life, do not overreact.  Stay calm and know that there is a way out and you will survive!  Expect the best and work towards a solution where you will be victorious and not the victim.  So many just take what life has to offer without considering any alternative.  Remember, alternatives are as numerous as your imagination.  Think outside the box and begin to imagine the best outcome to your situation and then take action steps to make it a reality!  You are much stronger than you think, I promise.

Controlled Change
When controlled change occurs, it is usually a product of much thought and planning.  This may be a well thought out job change, birth of a child or marriage.  You have imagined, carefully planned and then taken steps to implement.  Most prefer this type of change because it offers a sense of control.  But please remember, that even in a controlled environment, things can get out of control.  Just like the pilot who is never really 100% on course after taking off, but must constantly adjust until he reaches his destination, we too should adjust and adapt until we reach ours.  The more you can adjust to seemingly uncontrollable situations, the more peace and clarity of thought you will have to make it to your destination.

Uncontrolled Change
An act of God is probably the best example of uncontrolled change.  This type of change happens and there is no possible way to control it.  A tornado, hurricane or an earthquake occurs and there is no way out. These are the cases when your natural instincts take over and come to your rescue.  I’m sure you’ve heard of the lady who discovered her child was trapped under a car and then lifted the car by herself to free her child.  Or, the fireman who weighing only 150 pounds carried a man nearly twice his size over 100 yards to safety.  Just knowing you have this natural instinct should free you from the panic that usually accompanies uncontrolled change.  When you’re panic free, you have even greater energy and focus to beat most any uncontrolled change you may encounter.

From a Biblical Perspective
Change has occurred since the beginning of time.  No matter what your belief system of the creation of the world, I think we can all agree that massive change has occurred over time, right? In fact, if change is not occurring, it usually means death.  The Bible says that a child of God can have peace in the midst of a storm, a peace that passes all human understanding in the very midst of an event that seams out of control –How?  Because we have the creator of the universe living inside of us – leading, guiding and teaching us in all things.  With that, we can rest assure that all things are in fact under control, even if they appear otherwise. All things will work together for our good.  I’ve been through various experiences that no matter how hard I tried; I could never see how they would ever benefit me.  But, after enough time passed, each experience was in fact of ultimate benefit. I bet if you think about it, you’ve also had experiences that seemed chaotic in the moment, but later you learned and grew from them.  So, we know change will happen and no matter what change occurs, we’ll either learn from it or grow through it.  As we recognize that He is in control of every situation, we can yield to His direction and have the peace that passes all human understanding in the midst of any type of change.

Welcome to the November 2007 issue of your newsletter. No matter where you are in life, you have probably noticed that the people you hold close tend to mirror your actions and you theirs. Right? Many have even had a significant impact on your daily mood, or influenced your daily decisions.

By the same token, a lack of close personal friends will influence your life as well. We all truly need friends whether we admit it or not. This month’s newsletter will focus on one of the most important things you will ever accumulate on your road to success: good friendships.

 
Friends of Proximity

Most of us, by matters of convenience, have what I call friends of proximity. Simply put, they are the individuals you spend time with throughout the day because of their proximity, not necessarily by your choice. These people are usually co-workers, classmates, neighbors, or even that drive-through teller you see every Monday morning. Simply by physical association, we make friends with those we see often. If you’ve ever changed jobs, schools, or even houses, you will notice that when you move from one place to another, your friendships are modified. A new location, a new friend. While there are certain “social butterflies” that are exempt from this generalization, most of us change friends when we change locations.

There are, however, exceptions. For instance, when you leave a job that you’ve held for the past decade, there are those friends with whom you’ll still associate, even though your proximity to that person has changed. Be it dinner every other week, a daily phone call, or even those you still vacation with, you’ve truly made friends that last. Those friendships, my friend, are the ones this month’s Newsletter implores you to foster.


Intentional Friendships
The most intimate friendships we develop are what I call “intentional friendships.” These friends may include your spouse, your children, a former co-worker who lives in a different state but still calls you every week, or an old friend from high school who remains part of your life.These are the friendships that make indelible impacts on your life. Because of their significance and durability, these friendships are of great worth. Unlike your friends of proximity, it takes more than just being around intentional friends to maintain them. It takes phone calls, lunch or dinner dates, and other planned activities on a regular basis – but it’s well worth the effort!


Staying in Touch
Here is an idea that I have been using that might help you stay in contact with your intentional friends – I call it the Contact Circle. Over the years I have accumulated a group of individuals with whom I “intentionally” want to connect. Most of them live in completely different states; however, for one reason or another, I have come to value them in my life. Unfortunately, without some sort of regular contact, those friends will become 10-year-reunion buddies. The Contact Circle is what I use to keep important relationships active and alive. Because I spend a lot of time on my computer, I keep a file in the upper left-hand corner of my screen called “Long Term.” For those of you who are technically challenged, let me suggest you do the same by placing a piece of paper on your fridge or in your car where you will see it every day. On this paper, or in this file, list the people with whom you want to say in contact. Then, next to each name, list the medium of communication you typically use with each. Why? To establish a meaningful relationship with each person on your list, try using a medium of communication they don’t normally use. For example, if they send emails every day, write them a letter. If they talk on the phone every day, take them out to lunch. If they are “email-rebels,” send them an email and explain to them how to check it. No matter how much they may say they hate emails, they will love to check their email once a week for that “special email” from you. The idea is to break their normal patterns of communication so that YOURS stands out! By doing this you will become more than just another “person of proximity” to them! Then, it is up to you to schedule how often you go through the list and how often you make contact. Personally, I try to contact one person on my list every other day. It may sound mechanical, but I just start at the top of my list, and work my way down to the bottom. Then, when I reach the end, I add another person or start at the top again. Next thing I know, I’ve created life-long intentional friendships! You can, too!


From A Biblical Perspective

One of the most beautiful things about our relationship with Christ is the intentionality of His friendship. While it would have sufficed for Jesus to sacrifice Himself only so that we could spend eternity with Him, that clearly was not His only goal. He wanted us to have an intentional friendships with Him. When the disciples finally started to realize that Jesus was leaving them, they were horribly distraught. They were losing their best friend. However, Jesus enlightened them, “I didn’t tell you this earlier because I was with you every day. But now I am on my way to the One who sent me. Not one of you has asked, ‘Where are you going?’ Instead, the longer I’ve talked, the sadder you’ve become. So let me say it again, this truth: It’s better for you that I leave. If I don’t leave, the Friend won’t come. But if I go, I’ll send him to you.” John 16: 4-7

The Friend Jesus was speaking of is the Holy Spirit, a friend who leads, guides, teaches, and comforts. His purpose on earth is to be an Intentional Friend, someone who is with you always, by choice and desire!

One of the great differences between an Old Testament relationship with God and a New Testament relationship with God is what the Holy Spirit adds. He is a unique Friend using a unique medium of communication, for the unique purpose of retaining you as an intentional friend!

I sincerely hope you ponder this teaching, make your list of intentional friends, and start the circle. Intentional Friendships truly make life worth living!

Welcome to the August 2007 issue of your newsletter.I just returned from a 30-day European speaking tour and witnessed many great changes in many great people! We visited various cities in Germany and Austria and ended our tour through Paris, Italy and Greece. It amazed me to see how similar people are all over the world. Everyone seems to desire two major things in life; happiness and significance. We all seem to want to know that we’ve made a difference and would prefer to be happy in the process.

I finally released the product I’ve been working on for a lifetime called The Gift. Its’ reception in Europe was better than expected and it will now be released in the U.S. for the first time ever! I’ll give you a sample teaching fromThe Gift in this newsletter but I sincerely hope you’re able to take advantage of the special offer proposed. Please enjoy. Remember if you like it please pass it along to some of your friends.

  • BALANCED SUCCESS
  • ONE ALWAYS AFFECTS THE OTHER
  • HOW DO I KNOW?
  • WHAT DO I DO?
  • FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
  • BALANCED SUCCESS
    Although this is just a portion of one segment of the 49 segments included in The Gift, I think you’ll enjoy.Many people think success is “just money”, but let me ask you a question. What good would all the money in the world be without family, friends and the health to enjoy it with? Money can buy many things, except most lasting things that bring true happiness and fulfillment. I’ve known very wealthy people, financially, who are very poor relationally. I’ve also known people who were very rich relationally but very poor financially. There is a way to have both. Let me repeat myself. THERE IS A WAY TO HAVE BOTH.

    ONE ALWAYS AFFECTS THE OTHER
    In one segment of The Gift, I examine the six most important areas of life; Financial Health, Physical Health, Mental Health, Social Health, Relational Health and Spiritual Health. One always affects the other. If a person is doing great at his or her occupation and begins to have trouble at home, the occupation begins to suffer. Conversely, if a person has great relations at home and their occupation suffers and money becomes tight, it generally affects their relationships. To evade this potential disaster one must constantly be aware of each area of their life, notice when imbalance occurs and make the necessary adjustments immediately before things become too far gone to fix.

    HOW DO I KNOW?
    You will know balance is an issue in your life when one or more areas in your life begin to cry for help.Financially, your ability to make money is hindered. Relationally, close friends, family and intimate feelings begin to disappear from your life. Physically, it’s a little harder getting around and you may lack the energy and drive you once had. Socially, associates and other “non-family” relationships begin to diminish. Mentally, creativity weakens and it’s harder to remember things than once before. Spiritually, you feel disconnected from your creator and inner self. You know something is lacking but just can’t put your finger on it.

    WHAT DO I DO?
    Awareness is the first step to a balanced lifestyle. In The Gift, specific questions are asked that help identify areas of imbalance and then specific steps are offered to restore balance where needed. I would need at least five additional newsletters just to address one of these areas, but so I can leave you with something to think about, I’ll briefly address Finance Health.What does your current financially picture look like? Are you working at something you love? Is it your absolute passion? Are your inflows greater than your outflows? How do you know? Do you have a budget for your family? Do you have a budget for your business? Do you have your vision written down for at least one year – with specific timeframes for completion? Do you have the professional help needed for a successful financial future? Has building your Financial future weakened any of your personal relationships? Do you constantly break appointments with your spouse or significant other to keep commitments at work?There are many other areas that need investigating under the topic of Financial Health, but answering the above- mentioned questions should at least create an awareness of imbalance and move you in the right direction. Take these questions seriously because your Financial Health will affect all other areas of your life as well.

    FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
    Matt 7:7-8 says: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened (NIV). This says to me that if you really want something you must make an effort to receive it. If there are areas in your life that need addressed, it may not be easy, BUT PLEASE, before it’s too late, make an effort to ask, seek and knock until your answers are found. Once found, your life will be forever changed for the better! Your heavenly father has promised it!

  • AN EVENT – NOT A PERSON
  • WORDS SPOKEN
  • LET IT GO
  • SUMMARY
  • FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE

  • AN EVENT – NOT A PERSON
    If you happen to lack self-confidence, this may have been created by a series of failures in your life. But please remember that failure is an event, NOT a person. Just because you may have failed many times, that does NOT make you a failure!You may remember the story of Thomas Edison and his quest to discover electricity. He failed more than 10,000 times before the light bulb came on! Right? Wrong! When a reporter asked Edison about his 10,000 failures, Edison quickly replied: “I didn’t fail 10,000 times, but Idiscovered 10,000 ways that didn’t work!” His entire mindset only supported the idea that he was a discoverer and not a failure. What is your mindset?


    WORDS SPOKEN
    If your parents, close friends, or relatives continually called you a no good loser that would never amount to anything, this could be effecting your self-confidence today. Psychologists say that when you hear something from someone long enough, EVEN IF IT’S UNTRUE; you begin to internalize it as a fact. If these words came from someone you respected or held in a position of authority, it has even a more profound effect.I love the example of Michael Jordan – one of the world’s greatest basketball players ever. Did you know that he was told by his high school basketball coach that he would never make the varsity basketball team and should probably take up another sport? Yes, the great Air Jordan’s basketball coach cut him from his high school basketball team!Now let me ask you a question. What if Michael Jordan would have accepted what his coach told him as a fact and quit the sport he loved? What if he would have let the words of his coach, someone he looked up to, someone in authority over him, mold his future? This world would have missed out on so much, not to mention Michael Jordan himself! Has anyone said anything to you that could be affecting your self- confidence today? Has that caused you to miss certain opportunities?


    LET IT GO
    If you can think of someone in your life that put you down with condescending words, let’s take a look at what really happened and change your perspective today! This person was obviously not educated on the psychological ramifications of the power of their words and probably didn’t even mean what they said. Haven’t you said something during an argument or “off the top of your head” without really thinking it through? Even if they did mean what they said, back then, that doesn’t mean they still think that way now. So if the odds are very remote that this person even remembers what they said in the past, why are you still holding on to what they said today?Here are three very important words for you – LET IT GO.Even though they have probably already changed their opinion of you – not that their opinion mattered anyway – why are you still holding on to their words? Again, let it go! If this person is still close to you and they continue in the same behavior and continue to put you down, take this time to educate them on the ramifications of their words and ask them to quit. Whether they continue or not, OR, whether you decide to continue associating with them, you need to know that their negative words cannot form your future unless you let them! You are the only one that can allow that to happen. PLEASE – Don’t allow it to happen – Just LET IT GO.


    SUMMARY
    Please realize that even though the negative experiences you’ve had in the past may have tried to shape your future and hinder your self-confidence, you have the power to reshape it today. As you recognize failure as an event and not a person, you will also realize that the past does not equal the future. You are a discoverer and a learner but NOT a failure. With that mindset, failing doesn’t even exist. Discovering from your experiences exists and learning exists but failing does not exist.Discover your way to the new you. Use everything you’ve learned in the past as a tool to shape your future – a stepping stone to your own success. Keep moving forward into the life of your dreams – don’t allow anything or anyone to stop you. You’ve got what it takes to use what you’ve learned from obstacles and experiences to live the life you truly desire! Use the words of those around you to propel you to success – seeing them for what they really are. Now, GO FOR IT!


    FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
    The Bible states in Philippians 3:13 “No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.” (TLB). If you focus on your past to the extent that it keeps you from “going for” a great future, you will never truly become all you were born to be. However, if you focus on your past only to the extent that you learn from things that didn’t work and use the things that did, a successful future is inevitable! Focus your energies on attaining a great future, let go of the past, press forward and watch as your wildest dreams become your reality!

    Welcome to the April 2007 issue of your newsletter.This edition will be dedicated to exploring and explaining your imagination. I think you’ll find it particularly interesting and remember, if you enjoy it, please pass it along to your friends.

  • LIFE WITHOUT IMAGINATION
  • IMAGINATION PRECEDES CREATION
  • IMAGINE & CREATE YOUR FUTURE
  • IMAGINATION COMES NATURALLY
  • IF NOT YOU, THEN SOMEONE ELSE
  • FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE

  • LIFE WITHOUT IMAGINATION
    This is one of my favorite topics to discuss because without imagination we would all be living in a very boring and mundane world, wouldn’t you agree? Think about this – without the active imagination of someone envisioning the possibilities of light produced at the flip of a switch, something we now call a light bulb, we would all still be in the dark, right?Just think, what if no one had ever imagined traveling through the sky in a metal container driven by propellers and jet engines. You’re right, no airplanes.How about traveling across the Ocean inside of a floating hotel – you guessed it, no Cruise Ships. What if no one had ever imagined speeding up the process of cooking? Remember when it took hours to do what we can now do in just minutes? Could you even imagine life now without a Microwave oven? I can’t. Life just wouldn’t be the same without imagination.


    IMAGINATION PRECEDES CREATION
    Consider this – Anything you can possibly think of and anything you’ve ever seen or anything you ever will see, ALL began as just a thought in someone else’s mind. Remember this – Imagination always precedes creation.You’ve probably heard of all the catch-phrases like; if you can dream it you can do it or as a man thinketh so is he, or, if you can see it and believe it you can achieve it? Those are all good and true for the most part, but I really want you to understand that an active imagination is a necessity for anything and everything.


    IMAGINE & CREATE YOUR FUTURE
    An active imagination is even necessary in the realization of your own desired future. Wouldn’t you agree? What have you imagined your own life being like? What did you use to daydream about or maybe even continue to daydream about, even today? Have you ever formalized a plan to actually do what you’ve been dreaming or have you just given up and maybe dismissed it as a dumb idea? In my opinion, since you asked, the only true dumb idea is giving up on your dream.


    IMAGINATION COMES NATURALLY
    You are in more control of your future than you think and it all starts with an active imagination – it’s natural. Remember as kids how we used to imagine things that were impossible? How many of you have ever imagined you could fly? I know the Wright brothers did. How about having x-ray vision? Any super-hero’s out there? One of my personal favorites was to imagine that I could actually breathe under water. I think that was probably the driving force behind my first scuba lesson and subsequent certification to dive.So let me ask you this, if we all had imaginations that were more prevalent and natural in us as children than as adults, what happened? Who told you that you couldn’t do what you were imagining? Did you listen? Why? What if Thomas Edison, or Bill Gates, or the Wright Brothers had given up on their imaginations? This entire world would be different. Your entire world will be different if you try and suppress or ignore your own imagination!


    IF NOT YOU, THEN SOMEONE ELSE
    Would someone else have ultimately succeeded at what Bill Gates, the Wright Brothers or Thomas Edison had imagined? Probably so, you know life has a funny way about those things. Let me ask you this; have you ever thought of something useful or had an idea of how something could work better, only to see someone else come up with the very same idea and actually implement it into society? How did that make you feel? Do you just think that was just a coincidence? No, I don’t either.I’ll go this far, there are people alive today, depending, on what you’ve been imagining. Whether a new job, a new invention, a new and better way of doing something, whatever it is, there are others right now that are waiting on you to show up in life with your unique idea!There are even opportunities and monies waiting on your idea right now, but you have to act! Take steps now to introduce the world to what you’ve only imagined in the past and your future will be “more than you could have ever imagined”


    FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
    The Bible says in Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. NIVIn essence, use your imaginations on good, pure and admirable things. Always imagining the best in others and the very best way something could turn out for you. When you use your energies on the good things, then good things will manifest themselves in your life. Allow your imagination to work for you and watch as your wildest dreams become your daily reality.

    I can’t believe it’s already February, 2006! Time flies when you’re having fun, they say. When I think of February, I think of Super Bowl XL and Valentine’s Day – both to love and both to remember. Please enjoy your February edition of our Newsletter – if you like it, please pass it on.

  • February Trivia
    O.K., now for some trivia. For those of you who watched the Super Bowl last year, can you remember where you watched it? What did you eat and drink? Who did you watch it with? Who won? Now, for Valentine’s Day. Who did you spend it with? What gifts did you purchase? What gifts did you receive? Who did you connect with? What was your fondest memory?


    February Priorities
    If I were to guess, I would say that most men remembered more about the Super Bowl than Valentine’s Day and more women remembered more about Valentine’s day than the Super Bowl. Was I right? The first step to a healthy relationship and/or connectivity to the ones you love is balance. For men, watching the Super Bowl may be more enjoyable, BUT, in the overall scheme of things, what will have the greatest long-term impact on your relationship? For women, even though you may HATE football, is it important to your spouse or significant other that you watch the big game with them? How will that impact your relationship? Male or female, please consider balancing priorities and giving up a little of what you may love OR simply enduring a few things that you may dislike, to make a gesture of love to the ones you really care for.


    February Suggestions
    Men, take time now and plan a few special things for your wife or significant other that will say I love you on Valentine’s Day. Really put some thought into it and follow through with appropriate action – you will be so glad you did! Women, please take time now and think of a few things you may have to endure to say I love you to your spouse or significant other – he will be so glad you did!


    February Commitments
    Continue this for the rest of the year and see what happens in your relationships. Plan special events and things to do with the people you care for, write them down and follow through. I began doing this with my mother a few years ago. We live in the same city, but I was not spending very much quality time with her. I finally wrote in my scheduler a date for lunch with my mother, one day per week. Our relationship has grown by leaps and bounds. My wife and I plan a date night once a week as well. We get away from the kids, ignore cell phones and spend quality time together. This sounds elementary, but how many of you have these dates written down in your day timers, Palms, computers or schedulers for the rest of the year. If you haven’t, do it now and it will literally change your life.


    From a Biblical Perspective
    Speaking of love – Matt 22:35-40 says; Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. KJV Mark 12:30-31 says; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. KJV These two very important passages give us a glimpse of the love of God in Christ. Basically, when Christ came to earth and died for our sins, the law was taken from tablets of stone (the Ten Commandments) and written on the tables of our heart. As God moved from the judgment seat (before Christ) to the mercy seat (after Christ) the only law we are under now is “The Love Law” as described above. This Valentine’s Day, try and project love for your neighbor like never before. Carry that same commitment throughout this entire year and watch every part of your life change for the better. God Bless!

    Welcome to the first edition of your newsletter in 2007! The next twelve months will contain some of the most power-packed information that I’ve ever released. Great doors have been opening and I want you to be a part of the growth! This month I want to discuss the process of success that may be applied to anything in your life. There are certain success principals that work no matter who you are, what your education or which side of the tracks you’ve grown up on. My intention is to reveal and unveil some of these principals throughout 2007 until your dreams become reality! Ready to succeed?Remember, if you like what you read please pass it on to your friends and co-workers.

  • WILL YOU STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND SWING?
  • WILL YOU GO THROUGH THE PROCESS?
  • FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE

  • NEVER FEAR SUCCESS OR FAILURE
    Some people are actually afraid of success just as much as failure. If they become too successful they may wonder what their friends will say or how others will begin to act around them. (By the way, the definition of too successful is when you are more successful than the person telling you that you are too successful) Many people are afraid of success because they have seen it ruin so many others, even some of their friends. Success does not have to ruin you. As you approach success with balance, all areas of your life and the lives of people around you will benefit. As you lead by example, you and others around you will transition to higher heights and everyone will profit.


    FAILURE DOESN’T REALLY EXIST
    Don’t be afraid of success and do not be afraid of failure. As I’ve said previously, failure is an event, NOT a person. It’s just something that happens, it’s not who you are. The only true way to learn is to walk thru experiences that others may perceive as failures and find a way to become better because of them. There is no reason to fear failure because with the right mindset, failing doesn’t even exist. Think about this, if your mindset is that of a learner and a discoverer – just like Thomas Edison who never failed, but in his own words, DISCOVERED 10,000 ways that didn’t work before inventing the light bulb, then for you, failing doesn’t exist. Learning exists and discovering exists but failing is not even in your thought process. You WILL learn from your experiences and you WILL discover things that will help you grow, but failing is now out of your vocabulary.


    THE ONLY WAY TO PERCEIVE FAILURE
    The only way that failure can even be recognized is if lessons are not learned and discoveries are not made from your experiences OR even worse, lessons ARE learned but not implemented to help you in your next endeavor, moving you closer to your goal! Franklin D. Roosevelt said – “The only thing to fear is fear itself.” Babe Ruth said – “Never let the fear of striking out get in your way”, in essence – go for it. I ran into a friend the other day who works with a couple of guys I used to go to school with and they were telling my friend about my baseball career in school. They told him that Henry was the type of player who would either strike out or hit a home run but wasn’t afraid to put it all on the line and swing the bat. What type of player are you?


    WILL YOU STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND SWING?
    Can you think back to a time when a new idea or a new opportunity came your way and you didn’t even take a swing? And why? Were you afraid? We so often hear about the ones that are hit out of the park but we seldom hear of all the strike outs! Wouldn’t you agree? However, life is a process and it seems you almost have to swing the bat a few times and learn from new opportunities (even if they all don’t work out like you had anticipated) before you hit the ball. Babe Ruth carried a batting average of around 350. That means that he hit the ball 35% of the time and didn’t hit the ball 65% of the time. Even though he missed more than he hit, he made history by swinging at more pitches than not. To break that down even further, he would only hit the ball every third time at bat. Now let me ask you this, once Babe Ruth knew his own average and new that he would probably only hit the ball one out of every three times at bat, do you think after he got a hit in a game he then skipped his next two times at bat so that he would be sure to get a hit the next time he was at bat? NO, he had to go through the process. He hit once and struck out twice, hit once and struck out twice, hit once and struck out twice, a process that put him in the history books! He knew the process and understood that each strike out brought him closer to a home run! How do you view strike outs in your life?


    WILL YOU GO THROUGH THE PROCESS?
    My Mentor Paul J. Meyer started over 130 companies of which just 30 were successful, HOWEVER, of those 30, one of his companies has done over 2.5 BILLION, with a “B”, 2.5 Billion dollars in sales worldwide!!! Are you willing to learn and discover to get to your goal! How willing? How tenacious are you? How many times will you swing at the ball before hitting? How many times will you step up to the plate – even if you’ve just struck out?You will get a hit, but the number of times it will take is in direct proportion to what you learn and implement each time you’re at bat!!! NIKE says, “Just do it”! Will you just do it? I think you will.


    FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
    For a child of God, this teaching opens up even further.Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (NASB)Think about that for a minute. GOD CAUSES EVERYTHING TO WORK TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD!Besides the message of salvation, if the Bible was reduced to just one sentence and if that was the only sentence, it would be enough! Haven’t you seen things in your own life work out for your good – even when you didn’t think they would? I have. This teaching should eliminate any fear from your life and cause you to explore new opportunities – swing the bat and keep swinging – until your wildest dreams become your reality!
