Lead By Example: Narrowing The Gap

"There comes a time when simply knowing truth will no longer satisfy. If it does not change circumstances for good, what good is it?" ~ Bill Johnson

SIMPLY KNOWING A TRUTH or good idea is not enough. How many of your aha moments have actually changed your life in some way? Or brought you closer to a desired result? Very few? Some? Many?

Many of us would probably have to admit to a lot fewer than we'd like. We get excited over new ideas, but the trouble is that sometimes we're a little weak in our follow through. The gap between what we believe and what we're experiencing is a lot wider than we'd hoped for.

Perhaps we've picked up the idea that just knowing the truth about something will somehow magically bring about the desired change.

But, a new idea is just a seed, and like any other seed, we've got to plant it before it will root, grow, and produce a harvest.

We may have read a lot of great books, listened to inspiring speakers, or written reams of notes, but they won't do us any good UNTIL we take the first step to do something with it all.

So, think of one truth or idea you believed would change your life in some way, but it hasn't (yet).

Do you still believe it's true? Then what could you do today, this week, to implement a change in your life? What tiny step could you take to begin to bring about the desired result in your life, family or business?

To enjoy a harvest, we first must plant the seed. How will you narrow the gap today?

I'm working on being a better mother. Using quieter voices, encouraging more, sticking to my guns without raising my voice, and enjoying every little moment:)
