The ONE THING for today

Oh those limitations

  • “There is no known way to teach someone how to be a genius.” _Peter F. Drucker, The Essential Drucker

The humanist doctrine that we can do pretty much anything we put our minds to it is an illusion.

Positive thinking, dreaming, visualizing, more education and money, or more anything else will not allow you to do what is impossible to you.

Face it—you have limitations.

The moment you acknowledge that you are free from the guilt monkey that rides on one shoulder and the other-people’s-expectations monkey that rides on the other shoulder.

It also allows you to prioritize your abundant (but limited) resources and abilities and do something that really matters.

Oh and by the way, other people are limited also; it’s noble of you to give them a break when it’s needed (Don’t feed those monkeys on their shoulders!).

  • The ONE THING for today: When Jesus called fishermen to come follow him he didn’t promise to make them into something they were not; he promised to take what they were and change the world.  Let Jesus do the same in your life. 

17 Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

Mark 1:17 (NKJV)
