When I was in the military, we had to get up in the morning and do what’s called “PT” which is physical training. Every day whether you wanted to or not you are required to push your body to the limit doing long runs, pushups, sit ups and much more. Why? Because there was coming a day where you will be tested, and the test controls your progression or digression in the level of work and pay.
Much like the military you and I have tests coming up in our lives. In this season we have an opportunity to do “PT” meaning reading books, taking classes, cutting television consumption, praying, worshiping, working out mind and spirit… but are you choosing to sit the exercise out?
Your next success is failing because you can not see past today’s effort. If you only realized the discipline it takes for you to get up and do what is required to succeed, then maybe you would stop skipping today’s PT. You see, over time when you choose not to work a muscle out it gets weaker and weaker until it takes twice the effort to get it functioning again. So before you take another nap, another bite, or watch another meaningless show think about your future. Choose today to work on the unseen and watch yourself trail over any obstacle that comes in the future because now pushing yourself is simply a habit.

Jim Rhon says: “for every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.” In this year as we are pushing the limits and accomplishing all that God has put inside of us to do, It’s crucial that we remember there is no success without sacrifice.
Your dream will cost you… sleep, money, time, resources and even comfortability. But isn’t that the point? When you or I am fulfilling a purpose, we are doing something greater than ourselves, usually costing more than we typically have to give.
So today as you make that PB&J sandwich, miss that party, or miss funny moments on social media; remember your goal, your purpose, and your aspiration. Peace
We are now half way through the year and my friend… it’s time to put our goals into summer school. June is a half way marker to see if your desires for the year are beginning to bloom. If your asking yourself what goal, then I’m talking to you!
This is a year of release and many of you saw big and wonderful things happening in your life by this time, but we are going to talk about the fact that “it” hadn’t happened yet. When the dream didn’t manifest, you put the dream away, but God sent me here today to tell you it’s not too late!
God still intends on doing amazing things in your life but you have to put your goal back in the game. Traditional school may be out but summer school has just began. Buckle down, be prepared to do more work, and register today. Your purpose is worth it! Our God supercededs tradition so Sacrifice fun for fulfillment. Pull out your passion and go to work!! Peace
