It’s been said that the content of your life is the curriculum for your growth.
Where we are right now. What we’re faced with. The obstacles, difficulties, opportunities and victories and how we deal with them determine our growth and whether we go to the next level or not.
How we deal with difficulty and crisis can either springboard our leadership forward and upward or spiral it downward and backward. The choice is ours. People are taking note. Some of the greatest movements got their start or picked up great momentum in the midst of a crisis or really bad circumstances.
I have found that clarity of and commitment to keep moving in the direction of my faith, my purpose, and my values is key to maneuvering through life’s tests successfully.
The more clearly they are defined and the more vivid a picture I paint, hold and believe and the more discipline and perseverance I apply the more successful I become at passing life’s tests.
The question is where am I placing my faith, what is my purpose, what are my values and to what end am I applying discipline and perseverance?
The formula works for passing or failing depending on where we place the emphasis.
Understanding who and whose we are and his faithfulness to us makes all the difference.
