Yes, I am that guy.
The guy that everyone said walked a different road.
Growing up I was small, big ears, glasses, the perfect target to be picked on.
Back then it was “just kids being kids”, today it is called bullying.
Back in the day, nobody called it out … you just dealt with it.
Always in my thoughts, I was going to be the big athletic guy, not a “victim”.
I prayed daily that would be true.
Eventually my body grew into my size 12 feet.
My ears magically came back to my head.
Glasses were replaced with contact lenses.
Those days forced a decision to change my life and chart my own path.
Every day I chose to be better than the day before.
That demanded complete discipline and focus.
This journey started at age 15.
Consequences of all actions need to be calculated over and over before a decision is made.
Decision making is paramount. Right or wrong, make decisions.
Indecisiveness will not let you move forward.
Remember this: One decision can change the course of your life.
One bad decision can affect years and years of your life.
God’s presence in my life guides me to weigh consequences before making decisions.
To change your life, you have to make decisions.
Sometimes, you need to go in another direction.
Make the decision to TAKE BACK YOUR LIFE, now…
The choice is always ours and it starts with discipline and focus.
