Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Motivation is a challenge for me. I struggle to stay committed. Each day I have to renew my resolve and focus on my goals. Some days I reflect over how things went and am happy with the outcome. Other days, like yesterday, I look down at the enormous ice cream cone from the Salt and Straw in Portland and know I didn’t hit my mark. Many things motivate us to achieve our goals. Like in the picture here, the shark is a large motivation. Randy Teegarden will spend some time with you on Wednesday night talking about getting ready to apply the 7 decisions we are going to learn.
I look forward to being back on March 12 for the first decision. I am passionate to share with you these principles because I KNOW they work. Each day I apply many of all of the decisions and I can see the outcome. Please allow Randy’s words to inspire you to put your entire effort into learning what the decisions are and participating in exercises that will help you make them a natural part of your thinking and life.
I have been in Portland, Oregon and am heading to Seattle, Washington today. As a side note for those of you who are interested, Portland is causing me to have a serious hair crisis! It has rained the entire time we have been here! No amount of hair spray is going to fix that! I encourage you to attend class tomorrow night and hear what Randy has to say about getting inspired and motivated to apply the 7 decisions. I will be back in town this weekend and will see you in class March 12. Read Chapter 3 of the Traveler’s Gift by March 12th.
I pray that you can see your potential and that you will commit to the 7 decision so that you can succeed for Christ!
Getting good use of my umbrella here in Portland,
