First of all I’m going to post a picture. Clicking the picture will send you to one of the blogs I try to read every day.
There was first of all the call to control my mind. I need to be more aware of my choices and also my control over them. Take last night’s peanut butter “binge” for example. Sure I was tired, I was coldish, I was for lack of a better word, “blah”. I could have made different choices. I just didn’t bother to make them. However, now that I’ve made those “less than stellar” choices, it’s time to move forward.
This weeks chapter talks about having a burning desire to achieve something. Apparently it’s something I can create. But how?
Dave Ramsey talks about “gazelle intensity” when working the debt snowball. I don’t have that either. I just keep plodding along, eliminating credit card after credit card until they will be all gone! (Two left, one of which is almost done!)
In this third chapter, Hill mentions Henry Ford and John Wanamaker and he concludes it with a quote from Mr. Wanamaker
I acquired the education I needed the same way a locomotive takes on water – I scooped it up as I ran!
So here are the three steps I need to take in order to change:
- Start where you stand – knowing what I know, being who I am, looking as I look…
- Make the best of what I do have – employments, physical health, and all the many gifts God has blessed me with!
- Trust that what I need will be available when I need it.
Now I need to jump in and get going!
I do hope this is helpful to you. I know I need to sit down and make some plans for the next week, based on this!
Have a great day, stay warm if you’re in Alberta and wherever it’s still frigid out!
