When things ECHO-
Ever since I was a young boy, I have known that God sends me messages regularly, tailored special to me. I know it sounds a bit off the deep end, but hey… it’s true. It doesn’t happen the way that you might expect. I’m pretty sure God does this to everyone, but maybe people just aren’t listening.
Any time something in my life ECHOS… it’s a message to pay close attention. This doesn’t happen regularly … but when it does I’ve learned to listen. Or maybe better said, I am forced to listen… because like an echo…if I don’t get the message the first time…it will repeat and repeat until I hear it. It’s not always an echo of words. Sometimes it’s an echo of situations. Kind of like the echo of how some people date the same person over and over again… only they have a different name. I’m sure you know what I am getting at—smile. In any case, it is always something that I need to hear, exactly in that moment.
Today’s tools dealt with making goals… and how daily accomplishments bring the law of accumulation into play and BIG results. Understanding the difference between a goal and a result of a goal cleared up a lot of confusion, and helps me in setting short, mid and long term goals. Definitely one of my favorite TOOLS so far.
Ironically enough, this same principle of goal setting was talked about in a book I was just reading this morning. Think and Grow Rich. It was the same principal, explained a little differently…but basically the message was the same.
And So the ECHO effect has been placed into motion. I’m so grateful to be loved that much and that I can be trusted with all that I have!
