Wherever you are – be all there.
Found this quote the other day and it jumped out at me. I had no idea who Jim Eliot was, but I really liked his message.
I checked out his bio and now I understand how he lived this message. He was focused on what he believed in, regardless of what others said or thought, even his parents.
A very devout Christian, he wanted to spread the word through missionary work. And even though his plans never seemed to work out exactly the way that they were originally laid out, he remained focused and just made them work. He had planned a missionary trip with a friend to Ecuador, but then his friend had to back out so he kept searching for someone to accompany him and eventually found a way.
To me, this message just reconfirms what I have already come to realize, that if I want to accomplish any of my visions, of my goals, then I have to get laser focused until I get there. And then WHEN I GET there, I cannot just stop, I need to go further. I need to achieve more. I will always need to give back more, much much more, than I have received.
That is the journey that I am on, that we are on. We WILL get there.
How about you?
See you on the inside. Be All There, otherwise there is no sense in being there at all
