It’s great knowing people in high places, especially kings! I am blessed to have befriended a King from the Middle East named Solomon. This guy may be the wisest man to ever walk the earth! So you know I’m super proud to call him a mentor. I was reviewing some notes he left for me yesterday**, and I wanted to share a couple of takeaways if that’s okay with you. Hopefully it will help you as much as it has helped me!
Note #1: Wisdom is given to those who HEAR the call.
This is super important for us today. There is so much noise in the air — T.V., social media, satellite radio, iPods, iPhones, Androids, and the list goes on and on! Oftentimes, if we’re not careful, we can drown out important messages with senseless media. Take an inventory of the content that is passing through your eyes and ears and evaluate it for quality and alignment with your goals and dreams. Do the images and sounds support you in your journey, or are they a waste of time and mental space? Get stingy with you brain. Try to use every fiber of your mental muscle to propel you towards your dreams.
Note #2: Wisdom is released to those who seek her EARLY.
For those who talk to me regularly, you know that I am a huge advocate of getting up early in the morning! So I felt a huge rush of excitement when I saw validation from the King’s note. There’s just something powerful about getting up early and starting your day off while most are still snoozing. And I believe that decision is rewarded supernaturally. Eric Thomas, arguably one of the most dynamic motivational speakers in America today, is a major reason that I now look to get a jump start on the day. Do you need a little extra push to make this move? Click here to check him out! Trust me, he will help you! For many of you, this will be the hardest habit to develop, which is all the more reason to do it. When you force your mind to overtake your body, you are headed into miracle territory!
Note #3: Wisdom must be the PRIORITY.
You’re probably wondering, “why all this talk of wisdom?” Please write this down: To get wisdom is to unlock the door to your dreams! Wisdom gives you access to the answers and resources you’ll need to get to your goals. Just as there are many noises that can distract you, there are also many paths that can displace you. Pursuing wisdom means that no billboard will entice you to get off of the highway when you have to get to a date with your incredible destiny. The truth is many never return to the highway from their so-called pit stops. Don’t be deceived; keep your eyes on the prize – to be wise.
