Being an agent to act

From time to time, I think about the road and where it will take me.

As time passes, the more I realize that it’s not about the dummies guides, the short cuts, the life hacks, the ten steps to getting rich schemes that gets us to be an agent to act.

It’s not about the tactics. It’s not even about the road we’re on.

None of it matters if we’re not willing to take a step forward into the dark.

But the amygdala, the lizard brain, the natural man in all of us is afraid and keeps us from being the person God intended us to be. Our best selves.

Fighting biology is a difficult battle. One that may not be possible to win. So instead of trying to make the fear go away, learn to dance with it.

Spirituality can help us find a purpose. It can be the thing we use to fortify ourselves. Not so we can take away our challenges but to give us strength to overcome them.
