Amazing day yesterday was! The blog site was on fire. I loved the interaction! I actually got butterflies in my gut yesterday thinking about how FAST our stats are climbing and how influential this tribe is becoming.
Yesterday, at my Destiny Family Center office, we experienced the most productive day of the YEAR! Every meeting was highly INNOVATIVE… the ENERGY was epic! It’s SHOCKING to consider HOW FAST THINGS CAN TURN AROUND!
When I was in business, I learned that todays efforts are building (life, business, career, ministry) 90 days out… there is not much I can do to change RIGHT NOW at this moment… but I can change the NEXT QUARTER… RIGHT NOW! Does this make sense?
Whatever is going on in our lives today is the result of things we have done for the past 90 days to several years. We harvest the SEEDS of yesterday… we reap what we have sown or NOT SOWN.
This is a petrifying reality… because most of us need CHANGE as SOON as we RECOGNIZE our need for change! One day we wake up saying WOW, whats happened to my world? My God, I have to FIX this right now! Hurry up everyone… emergency meeting to discuss how to turn this around in 7 days! But, that’s not usually possible, is it?
Life is all about MOMENTUM.
Webster defines momentum as 1: a property of a moving body that the body has by virtue of its MASS and MOTION and that is equal to the product of the body’s MASS and VELOCITY : a property of a moving body that determines the LENGTH OF TIME required to BRING IT TO REST when under the action of a CONSTANT FORCE OR MOVEMENT 2: strength or force GAINED BY MOTION or through the DEVELOPMENT OF EVENTS.
For this topic of discussion, definition two says it best. Momentum is the strength or force gained by MOTION or through the DEVELOPMENT OF EVENTS.
In the world of momentum, there is a POSITIVE MOMENTUM and a NEGATIVE MOMENTUM… and both forces can take us to places we NEVER imagined! Which side of momentum are you on today?
If one desires to do anything substantial, he or she must learn to BUILD UP EPIC DEGREES OF STRENGTH OR FORCE… by FORWARD MOTION or through the development of POSITIVE EVENTS.
For me, momentum is built by:
- keeping my daily walk with God fresh and vibrant,
- loving and serving my wife and kids,
- being ON when I am ON and OFF when I am OFF,
- meditating on my vision 30 minutes EVERY day,
- taking care of my health,
- keeping my conscious clear by repenting of my sins,
- maintaining confidence and boldness,
- focusing on who I am in Christ and how much God loves me,
- valuing others above myself,
- seeking to bless EVERY person I intersect with,
- sacrificing and serving the people I lead,
- meditating on God’s Word ALL DAY, EVERY DAY,
- spending daily time praising and worship God,
- blogging, twittering, writing, and speaking with epic levels of passion,
- demonstrating FAITH in all my thoughts and actions,
- resolving to be listen for Gods direction and be led by his Holy Spirit!
I’m sure there are more… thats a good start for the discussion! Please share your MOMENTUM BUILDERS with the rest of us… and comment on the 16 I have listed.
Galatians 6:7-10 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9LET US NOT BECOME WEARY IN DOING GOOD, for at THE PROPER TIME we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us DO GOOD TO ALL PEOPLE, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
If your world is really messed up today… be very careful not to mull around in the mess. Ask God for ENDURANCE… and START BUILDING UP NEW MOMENTUM for a better tomorrow! Things can change… your big dreams can be realized… with the strength that is gained by FORWARD MOTION and through the DEVELOPMENT OF POSITIVE EVENTS!
I hope todays blog adds TREMENDOUS VALUE to your amazing lives! God bless you all!
