Continuing on from yesterday let’s explore another duo of roadblocks.

Lack of commitment:

Sure you’ve got a vision but you’ve got no action steps and you’re waiting for unicorns to bring you the secret blueprints and glitter to sprinkle and poof it all happens.  Real life isn’t like that.  It takes small actions repeated over and over again to create a lifestyle that creates your future.

 

Lack of commitment to you vision reduces your likelihood of ever reaching your destination.

 

You have got to be proactive and make the choices to move forward.

 

This is revealed in time management.  Show me  your dream and then show me your calendar.  If you haven’t made room for it in your life then you are exhibiting symptoms of lack of commitment.  Commitment gets up early.  Commitment is intentional.

 

 

 

 

 

Procrastination

You KNOW you should be doing something different but you trade the DREAM for the DISTRACTION.  You trade the TEMPORARY for the ETERNAL and SIGNIFICANT.

 

Esau did the same.  He traded the significant – his inheritance and birthright, for the temporary – a bowl of stew.

We make the same decisions in our daily life.  Trading Q2 time for Q4 time.  Filling our free time with time wasters instead of dreaming and building.

What are you trading?

 

 

Genesis 25:19-34

Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom. But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”  And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”  Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.”  So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.  And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

 

 

What is the bowl of stew in your life? 

What is your birthright?
