A Great Name

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with one’s name being great!

Sometimes in the name of humility, we keep ourselves from aspiring to achieve great things and thus limit ourselves, fail to reach our highest potential and deprive ourselves and the world of the benefits that would have come as a result of us reaching our peak.

Some people think that pride is the reason God came down to confuse the language of the people who were building the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1 -9 because they said ‘… so that we may make a name for ourselves‘. The real issue was that their agenda was opposed to God’s plan. He had told man earlier to replenish the earth and subdue it. How were they going to do so when their plan was to keep from being scattered over the face of the whole earth?

God doesn’t have anything against our names being great or against our making a name for ourselves. In fact, in promises* to Abraham and to David, He said ‘I will make your name great’.

So, as people created in the image and likeness of God, feel free to be creative like Him, the Creator. Think, imagine, have one light bulb moment then another. Develop those ideas and keep exploring your gifts and abilities. And if your name becomes great while you’re at it, by all means be thankful. That’s a blessing!

No limits! Keep moving!

*Genesis 12:2 & 2 Samuel 7:9

Finishing Strong

Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard about ‘finishing strong’ from two influential figures in my life. I think it’s a tactful approach to start now to refocus efforts towards finishing strong. That way we can invest the coming weeks to months in clear cut steps that will bring about maximum achievement; the kind that will be reason enough to gather our loved ones together to celebrate, or to just sit in quietness and be grateful.
Are you considering jumping on this FS wagon? Then here’s a thought to help you on your way:
Decide on the one or two things that would make a remarkably fulfilling difference in your life if you accomplished them at this time, zero in on your target and go for it!
Sometimes we allow ourselves become ineffective because we chase so many things at the same time. Then we lose the benefits that come with focus and end up with some progress in many areas. How about aiming for the finish line in the most important areas. At least by the time you stop to take stock, you’ll have something to show for all your effort. Then you can move on to the issues at the back burners with enough zest from your recent achievements and get them sorted too.
I want to finish strong and this is my strategy. What’s yours?
