We envision that future, so we are doing what must be done in order to achieve those goals. Determination, hard work, and perseverance are necessary, but those efforts are not enough. Every effort must be infused with passion. Passion is the X-factor that will give rise to the best results. There are no guarantees and we know that, but we can maximize our opportunities by simply having the appropriate attitude. Here is a quote from Zig Ziglar that my cousin Jamie recently shared, “F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours.” Fear can freeze or fear can motivate. We choose to ‘Face Everything And Rise’. That is the future we are planning.
We have much to accomplish. We are taking the necessary steps towards the future we seek. It is a wonderful time to look forward in planning. We are walking hand in hand through every effort together and that, in and of itself, makes it easy for us to envision our future together. So, I’ll continually ask my wife the rhetorical question, “My love, did you know I’m the luckiest?”
Happy Valentine’s Day, My Love!!!!!!! XOXOXOX
