iT (1)

Progress is not made thinking about IT, preparing for IT, planning for IT, talking about IT, learning about IT, questioning IT, or worrying about IT.  Progress is made doing IT.  Everyday we wake up to the same battle, the battle to roll up our sleeves and do IT.

DO what you ask?

Most of us know.  Your thoughts, energy and mind can be consumed by IT.  Each day serves up mighty portions of distraction to keep us from doing IT.

IT is a stretch, IT is not easy, IT is not obtained by settling, IT can be found at POINT B when you are living comfortably in POINT A. IT is scary.

But your heart desires IT.

A lot of what we are looking for can be found in IT

IT, that seed, that prompting God plants in each of us.

We can choose to ignore or distract ourselves from IT but the consequences are steep whether we acknowledge it or not.

Want to get healthier? Want to live a fuller life? Want to learn? Want to grow? Want more of what matters? Want more clarity on what your IT is?  Stop focusing on the destination; There is no magical place of arrival. Your victory is waiting for you today, it is in the action orient pursuit of IT. In the avoidance of the distracting, shinier, dreamier, complacency of putting it off until tomorrow. Start believing ALL you have today is ALL you need. With gratitude and purpose take what you have and work towards IT, today.

Your confidence, your clarity, your health, your sense of efficiency, your joy, so many things you are longing for are waiting at the intersection of  where IT meets today. Victory is not a destination you will one day stand on. VICTORY is standing knee deep in the work of your IT day by day.

Do not ignore your IT today.

Refuse to longly stare down a distant destination. Working on your IT today means you have arrived. You get to stand in VICTORY today.

STUCK happens : What is the #1 Obstacle?

stuck-happensEveryday I witness STUCK. People STUCK. Complacent. Venturing nowhere. So I was thinking about how often STUCK happens. I started asking myself what is the biggest barriers people have in life?

What came to mind was the BELIEF that they cannot change. The belief that their fate is sealed. That at a certain age your personality, your mode of operation, your way of doing things, the category in life that you are slotted into is STATIC.

I was trying to figure out the WHY behind doing what I do. What is it that drives me? Why am I so passionate about what I do?

It came down to this. I believe in PEOPLE. I believe that each one of us has the capacity to CHANGE, to really truly and honestly change.

WHY?

1st because I have witnessed it in me. Through my time in prayer and my growth in my faith I have witness CHANGE in me, in my attitude, in my confidence, in my mode of operation and consequently the environment and relationships surrounding me.

2nd I have witnessed it in the person closest to me. My wife Jen. How she has battled to arrive in a new place and stand on new victorious ground in her life.

Thirdly – In my travels all over the place I have met amazing people with amazing stories of victory. Of lives changed and new mindsets gained.

I have spent many hours heck DAYS, MONTHS, YEARS, SEASONS letting my grasp loosen on the hope that things can be different.

Strengthening my grip on hope has been a result of allowing the battle to be my training ground. The failures, the missteps, the backwards slides – I can either be honest about them (not in a self shaming way) or let them serve as proof that change is not possible.

I have been working on choosing a higher level of self awareness. I often ask myself this question

“How is that working for you Ira?“

In the face of frustration I ask myself “Are you going to keep being frustrated banging your head against the wall trying to do the same thing yet somehow believe you can achieve a different result?“

OR “Are you going to exercise your capacity to do things differently?“

I have resolved to stop waiting around STUCK. Stop waiting around for other people to CHANGE or my environment or circumstances to change. I remind myself daily of my verse from 2 corinthians a reminder that “At all times I have all that I need to abound in every good work.“ I have the verse hung right above my desk so I can re-read it everyday.

There are still days I give into complacency. You know, a bowl of crap food (that I really don`t want) scrolling through endless and mindless social media feeds (that I really don’t care for) BUT there is a difference. I have shaped a NEW belief. That we as people have been gifted the capacity to choose, to change, to chart a new course, to arrive in a different place.

The choice is ours.

Do I sit in shame around my perceived failures?

OR

Do I take a seat in a chair with an elevated perspective over them? Constantly learning and claiming ownership over my failures because I have a firm grasp on the HOPE that I can actually change?

It is only your BELIEF that holds you back. You want and desire change? START there, with whether you BELIEVE it is possible or not.
