D23: The Strength of Victory

Tuesday, 14 May 2019

Same as:

  • The truth and integrity aspect of our motives, agendas and intentions.

For motives to be defined, judgments require a root. Connecting motives to things that only provide instant gratification cheat growth and development in endurance.

Using fix-a-flat- as an example: a quick fix might be alright if your tire only needs to ‘roll’ a few miles to the next station, but relying on it to go the distance will leave you stranded.

Ask yourself: 

  • What do I stand strong in?
    • Why?
  • What do I back away from the fastest?
    • Why?
  • Is my version of endurance compatible with my standards?
    • Do I expect myself to climb mountains I shouldn’t be climbing?
  • Do I challenge myself enough?
  • Do I allow others to handle my challenges too often?
    • Or, do I handle other people’s challenges too often?
  • What are some of the things that effect my motive’s strengths? (daily news, politics, philosophies, religion, social interactions, etc.
    • Are those influences the best teachers in victorious strength?

 

Challenge:

Test your motives by doing something epically selfless without theatrics: like paying for someone’s gas without them knowing it, or mowing someone you know’s lawn when they’re not at home, using your mower. It’s harder than it sounds. Reflect on the outcome.
