One of the happiest days of your life is when the words “I’ve never needed that before!” come out of your mouth.
Because it means you’re growing…
Your car needs a certain amount of oil to operate efficiently. But it will never need a drop more. It’s ability will never get any better than its design. But you…you’re different.
Read a stimulating book, take an inspiring trip, meet someone who is doing amazing things and inviting you to join them and suddenly you find yourself at a whole new level. You’re learning things, going places, doing things that you never dreamed you’d do.
And you’re helping people, advancing causes, and making a difference in ways you never thought you’d make.
You’ll finding yourself needing things you’ve never needed before. What an exciting place to be!
Of course there’s a more challenging side to this.
You discover you’ve got cancer,
Your spouse decides to leave,
Your child makes a horrible choice,
Your company announces a merger that merges you right out of the picture,
Things like this could happen on any given day.
But here’s the good news, even the dark paths can lead to a better future. Even at their worse they can give you an opportunity to inspire and teach others by modeling courage, faith, and tenacity.
