Lesson #12:  Fulfill Your Destiny

What is your destiny?  What is your purpose?  Why do you do the things you do every day?  Do you know why you believe what you believe?  It takes a lot of trial by fire to fulfill your destiny, but once you do, you will become unstoppable.  Many never fulfill their destiny because they lack the courage, the patience, the vision, the mental toughness, the desire, and the persistence to do so.  They burn out.  The truth is that we don’t burn out because of what we do.  We burn out because we forget why we do what we do.  Some say they have burned out, but you can’t burn out if you have never been on fire.  We must be persistent in our quest to fulfill our destiny.  Author Andy Andrews states,

“Today, I choose to persist without exception.  No longer will I be distracted, my focus blowing with the wind.  I know the outcome I want.  It will hold fast to my dreams.  I will stay the course.  I do not quit.  I know that most people quit when exhaustion sets in.  I am not “most people.”  I am stronger than most people.  Average people give in to exhaustion.  I do not.  Average people compare themselves to other people.  That is why they are average.  I compare myself to my potential.  I am not average.  I see exhaustion as a precursor to victory.” 

Don’t quit!  Remember your why!  Be unstoppable!  Fulfill your destiny!  Be legendary!

Lesson #13:  Fire Over Flash

It is great to have a nice motto or a great vision statement, but they do not guarantee success.  In the end they are just words.  Do you live your motto or vision statement?  Does it permeate every action you take?  Every decision you make?  There must be a fire, a passion, behind those words.  Are you just making flashes or are you on fire?  Let’s get fired up!  Let’s continue to improve!  Let’s BE LEGENDARY!!!
