“The lens through which you view the world will become your reality”

Every day we are bombarded with negativity and malice. This can warp our perception of the world and cause us to embrace a mindset detrimental to success and our goals. As leaders, we have the power and responsibility to improve the lives of those around us. This quote challenges us to embrace a lens that views our families, coworkers, friends, and situations in a positive light. Let’s make the day count.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

” God won’t ever give you more than you can handle” I call BS on this often used phrase. There are numerous examples in the Bible and our own lives where He gives us more than we can handle. Cancer, death, bankruptcy, divorce, prodigal children, etc are all more than we can handle. God does not expect you to to come through these things alone, he expects you to come to him with your burdens where he will bear the burden with and for you. He gives you more than you can handle so you’ll come to learn to depend on him fully and in doing so be an example to your brothers who are walking through hard things of their own.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“A warrior doesn’t have to be someone who is in the military. It’s an archetype within all of us. We all need to draw upon our warrior when we need to be firm and resolved–when we are clear where we stand and we don’t want to get pushed around. But to be a warrior you need to know where you stand and what your lines of demarcation are. Because if you don’t stand for something you fall for anything. And if you don’t stand for something and some bully comes along–whether that bully is an organization or your dad or your brother or anyone else in the world, then you’re not going to have the resolve to fight back. So the warrior ethos starts with cultivating a personal ethos, which is deep clarity around these questions–What is my purpose in life? What am I passionate about and how am I going to align those? And what are my principles that are going to keep me aligned as I move towards that? And develop a very profound vision of what that looks like for you.”

Mark Divine”

I honestly haven’t really defined my passion and my purpose so I cannot connect the 2. I want to meditate on this and find them.
MOLESKIN:
Most ran the loop and some occasionally modified. I think a couple got 5 rounds in and most 3+.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I have been treating some of my daily life like an assembly line.  There are large task that I need and want to finish and by setting aside a little time every day, I have started to complete some of these things.  Nothing is too large to accomplish or overcome.  Sometimes it takes a whole assembly line of support, or you learn how to do the next part of the assembly line and you keep moving.  Eventually you get a finished product.
