PLANNING for Success
|Posted on 21 June, 2017 at 16:15|
As we talk about GROWTH (as it pertains to HEALING this week), it's IMPERATIVE to grasp the idea of "REHAB" and what that means/looks like. Let's imagine this scenario: an Olympian runner lost both his legs and was never expected to walk again, let alone RUN. Ohhhhhhh, but he sooooo wants to run again, so he decides to go for it with all his heart. He puts the huge, nearly impenetrable goal of competing in the next Olympics in the forefront of his mind, and now he literally EATS, SLEEPS and BREATHES his goals. He measures everything he puts in his body. He cuts out pictures of runners and puts them all over his house--on his fridge, above his toilet, in his car. He sits in bed and reads running magazines. He lifts weights. But more importantly he PLANS and ANTICIPATES his SUCCESS.
*FOR US: Remember, successful rehabilitation is accompanied by hard work and "pre-commitment". OUR VIEWPOINTS and PERSPECTIVES matter so much. We must surround ourselves with STRENGTH and WHOLENESS and do what is necessary to be well. Today, grab ahold of the beautiful "little" things in your life. Hold tightly to what you HAVE accomplished! Cry out for strength when you run dry! You are GOD'S CHILD.
TODAY'S QUESTION(S): What is holding you back? Is it tangible obstacles, or is it deep-seated "strongholds" in your heart/mind? Is OVERCOMING possible?
