Character is like a rock.
If it's good character, it is the foundation upon which an incredible life is built.
If it is bad, it is like a boulder, an obstacle, that trips up and sinks a meaningful life.
Every person's character is developing or deteriorating. Only through intentionally pursuing good character can a person move towards the life they were meant to live.
Development is choosing intentional, deliberate growth and advancement for my life. Living my life without a plan is like watching television while someone else has the remote control. I need to purposely discover the biggest gap in my life between who I am and who I need to be, and then work to narrow it.
Development: intentional, deliberate growth and advancement.
Colossians 3 says intentional development is the path for anyone who is alive in Christ. (I Peter 1:5-8, Ephesians 4:20-32)
My development determines WHO I AM, WHO I ATTRACT, and MY SUCCESS AND FULFILLMENT IN LIFE.
What keeps me from development?
Starting now, I will:
Get a plan.
Make a schedule.
Daily do the work.
Monitor my progress.
“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press toward the goal…”
