Still Going After It
Something I’m noticing as I’m studying these various people that have become successful is that they’re still running after their mission. It’s seems like no matter how much success they’ve experienced, they’re still going after something.
But what is it?
I believe when we’re truly experiencing a life that we’re doing the things we were made to do, there’s never an end. There’s never a level of arriving where we can leave the remainder of life to a state of sedentary. Life is movement. It’s action! It’s a continuous dynamic! When life ceases to move, life ceases to move. That’s called death.
What if our hearts just decided,
“Ahhhh… this is the good life. I’ve pumped enough. I’m just gonna sit back.” And this decision came right in the middle of life. Yes, there are lives cut short by unexpected heart disease and heart attacks. But, what brings the shock of it happening to such a young life? The fact that it’s happened to such a young life. That’s why it’s “unexpected.”
We expect our heart’s to beat well into our 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, even 100’s.
Don’t you think something is expecting us to keep beating ? Expecting us not to kick back in the middle of life? Expecting us to fulfill our mission?
Our heart’s mission is to beat. To pump life through our body.
Our mission is to beat. To pump life throughout humanity.
