POLISH THE SPIRIT
I am one of those obnoxious people that loves school. I think I have always been the most in my element when I am learning! In fact, once I was out of school and done with work to be a mom, I got lost. When I wasn't in an environment where reading, learning, and growing were mandatory, I felt guilty "indulging" in personal development as if that took away from my family.
Something I have come to realize as I have been liberated from this kind of thinking is that training of all forms polishes the spirit and that is what brings around that internal change that makes us excited to be alive!
How many of us can't wait to be out of high school and then college and then we drudge through work looking forward to retirement, is that really all life has to offer?! We lack an appreciation for the training, for what that does for us mind, body, and spirit.
This is one of the first concepts that I encourage my challengers to accept. The process can't be looked at as a means to an end. If you are only in this to lose 20 pounds the process won't change you. You will reach your goal and go right back to your old habits. However, when the purpose is transform yourself from the inside out, you truly experience a life change! It grows you, it molds your thoughts, you see your worth, you get excited about life!
Life has so much more to offer than simply "getting through" it! Enter the arena, face your fears, fight with blood, sweat, and tears, and slay the obstacles in your way! You were created with a relentless spirit and you will be amazed at what you accomplish when you take the time to train, strengthen and polish it!
Suddenly, you will have vision for your life and be indescribably glad that retirement is optional! No one wants to retire when they are accomplishing great things! The adventure is in the training! Fall in love with the process!
