You may not achieve all of your goals today.

It’s quite possible that not all of your dreams will come true in the next 24 hours.

You can’t build a house in a short period of time.

You can’t even save up enough money to build a house in a short period of time.

My beloved Boston Celtics are on a bit of a roll at the moment in the NBA and I noticed an interesting statistic that mentioned when Jaylen Brown has scored 20 or more points this season, the Celtics are 23-5.

Imagine that.

A player does well and the team benefits.

It seems obvious, but sometimes we forget this important principle and also neglect to apply it in our lives.

I need you to hear this today.

Maddi had a tryout for a new netball team tonight.

She was terrified.

But when she got home from school, she quickly got changed into her sporting apparel and, with trepidation, we went to the tryout.

There were over 20 other girls, many much older than her, but she took a deep breath and threw herself into the trial.

It would have been easy for her not to go.

When a criminal commits a crime, their fingerprints are left at the scene.

It points to the perpetrator.

No-one else could have done this.

I trust that you’re not leading a nefarious life of crime, but there is work that you are doing.

We’re not meant to walk this journey alone.

We need great companions to travel with.

I stumbled across this quote from leadership guru, John C. Maxwell today,

If you are a leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it – young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous – is changed by it.

We live in a world where it’s easy to criticise and find fault.

To yell from the cheap seats.

Can you have too many good people in your life?

You know what I mean, people who bring out the best in you.

People who make you laugh.

People who keep you focused and motivated.

People who generously provide mentoring and advice.

People who are there for you during the low moments.

Some people are passionate about nice, but ultimately innocuous things.

Their hearts pound when talking about their teaspoon collection, or ferret breeding, or pumpkin sculpting.

All perfectly harmless activities, that don’t really make much of a positive impact.

Then there are those who believe that they have a very real purpose.

If there’s something that you really want in life, then get ready to receive it.

If you’ve been praying for it, open up your hands to grab it.

Don’t be afraid.

The great German poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, once wrote:

β€œAre you in earnest? Seize this very minute:
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it;
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Begin and then the work will be completed.”
