Amazing Pursuit

Amazing Pursuit
I was working with a young man yesterday on developing his basketball skills and I asked him, “How good do you want to be?”
He said, “I want to be good.”

 I said, “Then we are wasting time. Tell me again, how good do you want to be?”

He thought for a second and then replied, “I want to be amazing!”

Immediately I responded back, “Then you have to have an amazing pursuit with amazing effort!!”

In other words what ever it is that you want you will only obtain it to the degree of your pursuit.

Arnold Schwarzenegger approached his workouts with a failure mentality meaning he never had a set agenda of 3 sets of whatever reps.  He did every set to failure… until he could do no more.  That’s extreme but he got amazing results. 

Kobe is legendary for his work ethic.  It is no wonder that he will go down as one of the top 5 players to ever play the game of basketball.  Some would even argue he is better then Michael Jordan.

Martin Luther King had an amazing pursuit of equality.

Mahatma Gandhi had an amazing pursuit of justice.

My goal is to have an amazing pursuit of my Heavenly Father.  (Matthew 6:33)

So remember, an amazing pursuit will produce amazing results!

Be blessed!
