Several ideas come together today …
First, is the desire that all of us have to discover and understand our purpose in life.
Second, is a quote from the movie BRAVE: Merida states at the end: “Our fate lies within us. You only have to be brave enough to look for it.”
Third, is a poem titled Your Dimension Of Greatness from an unknown author:
No one can know the potential,
Of a life that is committed to win;
With courage – the challenge it faces,
To achieve great success in the end!
So, explore the Dimension of Greatness,
And believe that the world CAN be won;
By a mind that is fully committed,
KNOWING the task can be done!
Your world has no place for the skeptic,
No room for the DOUBTER to stand;
To weaken your firm resolution
That you CAN EXCEL in this land!
We must have VISION TO SEE our potential,
And FAITH TO BELIEVE that we can;
Then COURAGE TO ACT with conviction,
To become what GOD MEANT us to be!
So, possess the strength and the courage,
To conquer WHATEVER you choose;
It’s the person WHO NEVER GETS STARTED,
That is destined FOREVER to lose!
And lastly, an observation from the Olympic Games in London – it takes long painful periods of preparation of many years, filled with tons sacrifices and a huge desire to win the race … and then we have to show up prepared to enter the race, to do our best and to run with all of our heart. The message from the movie BRAVE is that we CAN change our fate! It is a message of grace. It is a message of hope.
