Over the course of the last day and a half, I have read and seen so much about how Osama Bin Laden was relentlessly pursued until he was eventually found and justice was served. It took almost 10 years and obviously there were many setbacks and disappointments, but the ultimate goal of making the world a safer place was accomplished.
Are you relentlessly pursuing your goals? No matter what the obstacles, challenges or impediments, do you set out each day with your goal or goals in the crosshairs of your laser focus?
If not, then why? Are your goals not important enough to you that you would just give up on them or are they so lofty that they seem impossible to accomplish? Who is on your “team” helping you to achieve your goals – spouse, family member, friend, coworker, God? Are you accountable to them or are you just trying to do this on your own? I finished The Love Dare last night and I distinctly remember Day 35 which is entitled, “Love is Accountable” and the quote from Proverbs 15:22, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”
In your relentless pursuit of your goals, though, what just might be most important are the first two paragraphs of Day 35 of The Love Dare. It says, “Mighty sequoia trees tower hundreds of feet in the air and can withstand intense environmental pressures. Lightning can strike them, fierce winds can blow, and forest fires can rage around them. But the sequoia endures, standing firm, only growing stronger through the trials.
One of the secrets to the strength of this giant tree is what goes on below the surface. Unlike many trees, they reach out and interlock their roots with the sequoias around them. Each becomes empowered and reinforced by the strength of each others.”
Are you being empowered and reinforced by the strength of others on your journey to your goals? Sequoias withstand a myriad of challenges to their existence in the course of their hundreds of years of life. Can you learn a lesson from them?
