“...at any moment in time there can be only ONE Thing, and when that ONE Thing is in line with your purpose and sits atop your priorities, it ill be the most productive thing you can do to launch you toward the best you can be. Actions build on action. Habits build on habit. Success builds on success.”“I want you to do something. I want you to close your eyes and imagine your life as big as it can possible be. As big as you have ever dared to dream , and then some. Can you see it? Now, open your eyes and listen to me. Whatever you can see, you have the capacity to move toward. And when what you go for is as vast as you can possibly envision, you’ll be living the biggest life you can possibly live. Living large is that simple.”
Did you do what Keller said above?
If not -- what are you waiting for? Go for it! I can wait…
When I did the little exercise above, I saw myself hosting an internationally syndicated talk show (sort of like Oprah) but with an empowering twist (sort of like a Tony Robbins seminar)... My vision for the show is that it enables viewers to watch and learn from my guests -- who are the most inspiring, passionate, purpose-driven people on the planet (authors/entrepreneurs/entertainers/philanthropists/etc.) ... There are no boundaries as to who can come on my show and who cannot. The only requirements are that they’re willing to talk about why they do what they do, and how they went from being “ordinary” people to “extraordinary [insert profession here]”. In short, I’m all about inspiring people to inspire themselves. Coupled with my love for teaching, coaching, and connecting with people -- the biggest life I can possibly imagine (global talk show) brings all of these elements together in a way that allows me to bring massive value to the world and have the greatest impact on the highest number of people possible…
My journey is built on making the aforementioned dream a reality. And in my mind, it already is. What about yours?
Your Journey toward extraordinary results will be built above all else on faith
“It’s only when you have faith in your purpose and priorities that you’ll seek out your ONE Thing. And once certain you know it, you’ll have the personal power necessary to push you through any hesitancy to do it. Faith ultimately leads to action, and when we take action we avoid the very thing that could undermine or undo everything we’ve worked for--regret.”
Keller mentions an excerpt from a book written by Bronnie Ware titled “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying”. Without further ado, here they are:
- “I wish that I’d let myself be happier”
- “I wish I’d stayed in touch with my friends”
- “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings”
- “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard”
- “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
