Christmas is the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It also is a time that I focus on rest and reflection. I have an Apple Watch that oftentimes reminds me throughout the day to breath. I go so hard sometimes that I fail to simply breathe, which is essential to living.
Izey Victoria Odiase once said, “Relax, Recharge and Reflect. Sometimes it’s okay to do nothing.” I have a hard time doing nothing because I have Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). One of the major benefits of resting for me is that it allows me to reflect on what I need to do to improve as a husband, father, Coach, etc.
My personal mission in life is to be significant by serving millions and bringing them into a relationship with Christ, starting with my wife, Kelli, and our daughters, Mackenzi and Mackenna.
My life vision is that a legion of men and women who I have coached will become positive change-agents in America and throughout the world.
Vision is what we can see in our mind while faith is a belief that God will do things for us beyond what we can think, see, imagine, etc.
I pray that you are intentional about getting rest and reflection in these final days of 2020. As you do, ask yourself the following:
- What do you dream about?
- What do you worry about?
- What do you cry about?
- What brings you joy?
