Day 235 | I Am No Longer At The Starting Line

Day 235 | I Am No Longer At The Starting Line

I have a High Performance coach, Oginga Carr. He is pretty amazing and I think that everyone should have a coach. We meet weekly and each time I take away wonderful nuggets of information. I wanted to share one with you this morning. Oginga said to me, “respect the fact that you are going down the road.” Here’s what he meant. I may not be exactly where I want to be just yet; I may not have reached my destination (my goal) just yet. I may not be at the finish line, but RESPECT the fact that I am no longer at the starting line. I am down the road. I am a lot closer to meeting my goals than I’ve ever been my entire life. That was beautiful. That word “respect” played a different perspective in this message. To respect something means to admire or honor. I may have a bit further to go—but I’m no longer at the starting line. And for that I am thankful. Take time to reflect this morning. Find gratitude for every step you’ve taken beyond the starting line. For many, find gratitude that you have even discovered your starting line. There’s so much to celebrate. We are all on a journey. Let’s keep moving forward together.  .
