4 x 365 = Infinity

You should  know that I am not very good at math, but I am absolutely confident that 4 x 365 = Infinity. Here's how I figured it out.

For 365 days I tried my hardest to give each day all that I had in me. I experienced a multitude of emotions, highs and lows, but I went to bed most every night knowing that that day, I had given my all. 

I decided that I was done with excuses and I embraced the concept of the English proverb of "where there is a will, there is a way." I'm talking about from the will to get out of bed to the will to stand my ground in tough situations to the will to simply go for a walk. 

I packed my days with as much earnest effort as possible. On day 365 I realized that I like life this way, much better than my previous 12,045 days of life. 

So, I recommitted to another year of giving it all I've got. Here I am, near the close of 4 years of relentless effort to strive to give each day my best effort and I've found that I have gained an infinite amount of blessings and joy living my life this way. 

I have gained more from this effort than I could ever describe. I only wonder what would have been, if I had caught the vision sooner in life. 

I've no regrets, but I know that if I don't continue the relentlessness, then I will regret inaction. I like that "I can" plays a more noticeable role in my life than "I can't". 

What I'm really getting at here is that we all live far below our potential, simply because we fail to do the little things each day that are the building blocks to achieve big things. 

These big things are defined completely by you, they are not to be compared. Rather, these big things are custom made. The big things don't happen everyday though. 

As a matter of fact, my days are filled with little things, but once they build momentum they grow exponentially into something much larger and then, all of the sudden, I find another goal achieved. 

So here I am, coming to yet another Thanksgiving and I can't help but ponder this new equation and how much I am looking forward to continued growth. It's all about doing a little at a time with earnest effort.

I am so incredibly thankful for the mental strength and heart that my Heavenly Father has given me. 

So Thanksgiving Day starts another 365 days of success. I would love nothing more than for you to believe and join with me in your own custom made journey.
