At this time, more than any other time in our lives, it is vitally important for us to drop anything that will not help us reach the fullness of our purpose. It may even mean dropping something that helped us get to where we are now. Even if it was valuable in getting us where we are, if it will not help us on the path ahead, we must be almost merciless in dropping it and moving forward. Otherwise it could weigh us down and hinder us from reaching our destiny as we press on to what lies ahead.
Runners who are serious about winning a race will go to great lengths to improve their speed. They will often refuse to wear or carry anything that might increase wind resistance and slow them down, hindering their chances of winning. Like those athletes, we’re in a race. We cannot afford to carry anything with us that is going to slow us down or hinder our chances of successfully finishing the race to fulfill our life purpose.
There is an old proverb that says, “The good is the enemy of the best.” That may be truer today than it has ever been. We really don’t have time to waste on anything that is less than the very best use of our time and energy. We may have to forgo the enjoyment of many “good” things simply because our time is limited.
Forget what lies behind. Press forward with a single focus on the narrow path ahead. Shed anything that hinders, weighs you down or distracts you from your highest purpose. Keep your eyes on the prize!
