TRAINING


Training - - - so what is it and what does it mean? How does it relate to "boundaries" or in our case, Knowing No Boundaries?
We all seem to be "training" for something all of the time. Training to improve our skills at school or at work, training to learn a new language, training for our first 5K, marathon or ultra marathon. With this training, comes obstacles; times during our training when we just do not feel that we are making any progress or even backsliding! As with most other boundaries or obstacles, they are mainly in your own mind! YOU have placed them there and YOU have given them the power to hold you back.
The big question is WHY? Why have you let some trivial challenge, some minor setback or difficulty get in your way of achieving what you set out to accomplish?
Has your desire to accomplish it diminished? I think not.
Have you decided that it is no longer something that you want? Also, I think not!
Has it become something that is beyond your true physical, mental or emotional limits? Again, I think not!
What is it then?
I believe that you have decided that it is easier to let the challenge overcome you and your desire and have relegated yourself to a few good excuses to use when asked "Why" you did not achieve what you had set out to accomplish.
Well, I am hear to tell you that IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!
YOU HAVE CAPACITY TO OVERCOME YOUR OBSTACLE! YOU HAVE THE STRENGTH TO BREAK THROUGH THE PROVERBIAL WALL THAT IS SEPARATING YOU FROM ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS!
What you need is a partner, an accomplice, or someone to whom you wil be accountable to. Someone who can understand your challenges and know exactly what it is that you need to push you over that wall or obstacle. Sometimes you actually need something physical like new shoes, that special class, a wheelchair or extra funds.
We all need things at times and for countless reasons. They are there for you; you just need to seek and ask. Not seek anywhere or ask anyone, but seek specifically in the place or places that can provide what you need. Ask those who CAN halp and have the knowledge and skills to help.
Often times however, we are too proud to ask. It just seems easier to pay the price of not achieving our goals, not becoming all that God has in store for each of us.
Here at Know No Boundaries, we say "Swallow your pride." There ARE people who are just waiting on the sidelines of life eager to help in any way necessary if you would only be open to it.
Although an obstacle can appear daunting, appearances can be deceiving!
When looked at through and with the eyes of a friend or a helper, things look very, very different.
KNOW THAT YOU CAN!
YOU CAN BE, DO, BECOME AND HAVE everything that God has planned if you would only look through HIS EYES and take the hands offered.

God Bless;
